I've been pulling my hair from the roots for so long i cant remember if it's been almost a year or just over.
Also i scratch my head like the scabs, and it's so distracting, like I can't stop myself.
when I'm doing my h/w , my attention span drops and i just sit and pick at my hair for ages, my hairs becoming more and more with less volume.
i also pickat my skin
I tried tying it up and wearing a hat but it doesnt work
What should i do : (
i even do it at school now

It's always worth calling your GP if you suspect that anything's up!
Mental health has got to take priority dude! Call in with the NHS or 111 or something along those lines and try and get some help.

it sounds like trichotillomania and dermotillomania, my sister suffers with this condition for many years. it is quite a prevalent condition but a taboo subject. it is more common among females. CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) has been found to be quite useful, meditation also helps. try to find something to keep your hands busy for example taking up drawing or painting, sewing. I am happy to put you in touch with people who suffer with this, just let me know.

Thank You so much, I will try to do stuff like painting but the thing is that even when I'm doing work like my homework then I can't focus and then i just sit and pick my hair
