We’re here to remind you…

You are beautiful, with or without hair.   

Dealing with trichotillomania as a woman is ESPECIALLY hard due to society’s expectations on us.

When conventional beauty standards in magazines are all about long flowing hair, long fluttering eyelashes and power brows, it’s easy to fall into the trap of feeling like your missing hair means you’ll never be considered beautiful.

Don’t worry, we get it. We’ve been there. We ARE there. But know that your beauty is SO MUCH MORE than hair.

Your beauty is the way your eyes sparkle when you laugh. The way you smile that lights up the room. The way you carry yourself with confidence. The way you dress, in your own unique style. 

Your beauty shows in the way you make people feel. Your kindness. Your heart. Your personality, and the reasons all your friends love you. 

Trichotillomania will never take your beauty away from you – remember that!

GROW is for you if….

 

❤️ You’ve been pulling your hair, eyelashes or eyebrows for months, even years or decades, but just can’t seem to stop.

❤️ You keep your hair pulling a secret from your family, friends, colleagues and try to hide any bald patches.

❤️ You have deep internal feelings of shame about your hair pulling – this affects your relationships and how close you get to people.

❤️ You sometimes cancel social events and bail on friends because you can’t deal with the thought of anyone seeing you when you’re feeling down about your missing eyelashes / eyebrows / bald patches.

❤️You wish you knew other women who have trichotillomania too so you feel less alone in this journey.

❤️ You’re ready to try something new, connect with other amazing women across the world with trichotillomania, and explore alternative methods to dealing with hair pulling!

video and audio practical lessons

Guided Hypnosis

3 audio tracks (hair, eyelashes, eyebrows) developed to help you reprogram your subconscious mindset.
Learn More
Introducing your hypnosis teacher, Marbella! She is an intuitive healer specializing in hypnosis as a method of theta brainwave transformation to change unconscious behaviours.

 Marbella has developed three guided hypnosis audio tracks for the GROW community, one for eyebrow pulling, one for eyelash pulling, and one for head hair pulling.

We recommend listening only to the audios that focus on the hair types you pull (eg. if you don’t pull your eyebrows, don’t listen to the eyebrow track).

Listen to the relevant hypnosis audio whenever you feel the urge to pull, or regularly as a maintenance tactic to stay pull-free.

 

Breathwork Techniques

Guided breathwork exercises designed to help with targeted pulling and absent minded pulling.
Learn More
Breathwork techniques are breathing exercises that are aimed to improve mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. During breathwork you intentionally change your breathing pattern and the result is often a deeper feeling of relaxation or increased levels of energy (depending on the technique).

Some people with trichotillomania use breathwork techniques to help them pass through the urges to pull without giving in and pulling, or to change their physical and mental state to reduce (and sometimes eliminate) the urges to pull.

Eliminating Shame

Learn how to deal with and overcome the shame that causes you to keep trich a secret and hide it.
Learn More
Dealing with trichotillomania is tough, and one of the hardest parts about it are the feelings of shame, guilt and embarassment that can have a real impact on our lives. 

In the GROW Masterclass, we work on eliminating these negative emotions and building up feelings of self worth so that we can move more confidently in the world without shame holding us back.  

Understanding Trichotillomania

Gain a deeper understanding of what trichotillomania actually is and why it occurs.
Learn More
We dive into trichotillomania to outline the two different types of pulling, explain why willpower doesn’t work, and look at some of the science behind it. 

Emotion Freedom Technique (Tapping)

Learn how to do EFT – also known as tapping – on yourself as a strategy to resist urges to pull.
Learn More
Emotional Freedom Technique is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. It’s also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure.

Similar to acupuncture, EFT focuses on the meridian points — or energy hot spots — to restore balance to your body’s energy. It’s believed that restoring this energy balance can relieve symptoms a negative experience or emotion may have caused.

Based on Chinese medicine, meridian points are thought of as areas of the body energy flows through. These pathways help balance energy flow to maintain your health. Any imbalance can influence disease or sickness.

Acupuncture uses needles to apply pressure to these energy points. EFT uses fingertip tapping to apply pressure.

Some people with trichotillomania use EFT to help them reduce, or in some cases even eliminate, their hair pulling.

Finally, a community who understand what you’re going through!

“It used to consume me in shame and guilt. I’ve hidden behind makeup cover ups for years. I’ve slowly learned to accept it and now trying to live with it in peace while limiting the pulling behaviour”
“The way I see myself fluctuates drastically. My self esteem plummets when my trich decides to get the best of me, whether it’s my eyelashes, my eyebrows or bald patches it never fails to make and appearance somewhere, and draw unwanted attention. Bombarded with questions from friends, family, and even strangers, it stays in my mind constantly and for years. My depression, my anxiety, and the way I view myself worsened throughout the years while battling with this disorder.”
“In the worst times, it makes me isolate myself and fills me with loathing towards my body image. It makes me waste tremendous amounts of time. It enhances my unhappiness, sadness, stress, fear or fatigue. It brings down my self-esteem because I am ashamed of it and dislike the easiness with which i sometimes give in to it. It separates me from reality and whatever is going on around me. It even hurts my eyes and back by focusing on something too close for too long. I really dislike myself when I see the hair i pulled afterwards.”
“Every single day I spend minutes — probably closer to hours — thinking about tips and tricks and cover-ups to make my hair not look as awful as I think it does. Friends and family don’t understand Trichotillomania and many don’t even think it’s a real thing, telling me to just ‘stop pulling’, like it’s as simple as that. It affects me in most aspects of life.”
“Trich affects my life in ways I would have never really pictured it would. It has brought me to immense pain and deep emotions that felt almost unbearable to manage. When I first realized I pulled out my hair at 10 years old, I shamed myself. It was very hard to find compassion for myself because I felt like there was something really wrong with me. I am 21 now and throughout my life, I have been learning how to release that shame because I am not alone in this; many others have suffered too. Trichotillomania was the reason why I first went to therapy, and I have managed therapy over the years as it has been something that I have had to consistently go through most of my adolescence. I am still learning how to be okay, and that is okay.”
I’ve had it since I was maybe 8 years old and am now 26. I pull almost everywhere. I have very few eyebrow hairs, no lashes, and the entire top of my scalp is nearly bald all the time. I struggle to cover it up, I struggle to stop, and I struggle to love myself because of this. I constantly feel like I struggle to even feel normal, let alone beautiful. I’ve tries many tactics to stop and most lead to short-term success only. I’d love a community to discuss more options with.
“I have only met and become close with one other woman than pulls and we don’t really talk about it at all. I would like to become more comfortable talking about my disorder, being okay with it, and accepting that it is a part of me and always will be. But I also realize that just because it is a part of me, that doesn’t mean I can’t do my best to better myself. I would love to have other women support me and be there to support them as well.”
“I want to meet others like me and be able to connect and maybe even find some helpful tips to stop pulling. I also want others to know they aren’t alone. We dont have to sit in silence and be embarrassed. There are others like us and we deserve to have a resource.”
“My hair is my biggest insecurity and it would be nice to have a place where I could go where people would understand what it’s like to live with it.”
“I want to join the GROW community because I believe people should not have to suffer alone; when one feels alone, is when shame, guilt, and loneliness harbors. These feelings often leave a painful and isolating feeling to the individual. It is safer to talk to those who understand and share similar experiences over anyone else who has never gone through what you may be going through. I would like to also offer my support and any advice I can.”
