Nah, if anyone said they had "literally pulled their hair out" I would assume they meant that they had physical wrenched the hair from the follicles. Otherwise, what's the point of the word?

But then there are a number of other words used inappropriately to apply stress to a point.
For example, "absolutely", "incredibly", "awesome".

I do think that the language is losing a lot of its richness because of the lack of imagination of the utterers.

Oh, and I would ban the word "like" when used as a substitute for breathing.
