Toddler pulling her hair out...

Hi - has anyone had any experience with a toddler pulling out his/her own hair? My daughter has been doing this a lot, seemingly when she is upset. Somehow I forgot to bring this up to the pedi at our last visit so figured I would come here for advice in the interim.
I just don't know what to do about it, b/c I know it is probably a self-soothing act and nothing she can really totally control - so I don't want to scold her but I do tell her to "be nice" or "dont' hurt yourself."
It is actually rather disturbing. :-( She's an otherwise very happy and pleasant little girl - I just don't want her going bald.
