  • Awareness: by using this App you will become more aware of your hair pulling behaviors.
  • Insights: understand your pulling patterns – do you pull at certain times of day? Under specific circumstances? What triggers your pulling? Answering these questions is important for choosing the right coping methods.
  • Therapy: already seeing a psychologist about your hair pulling? Enhance your therapeutic process by using this App, and share the data with your therapist. Or use it in conjunction with our online therapy program.

How It Works

  • The App allows you to document your pulling urges and episodes. Each time you experience an urge/episode, you can reach for your phone and add an entry. You can also add entries retroactively (for example, you can use the App once a day before you go to bed, documenting your behavior for the past day).
  • After a while of using the app, you will have gathered enough data to start seeing patterns in your behavior: whether you pull at specific times of day, due to certain circumstances, etc.
  • Data is conveniently organized and visualized with graphs and charts, which makes gaining insights into your hair pulling patterns easy.
  • If you are undergoing therapy at the moment, you can use the App to enhance the therapeutic process. Chances are your therapist asked you to keep a pulling log anyway – this App makes it easy and intuitive. Plus you can easily share the data with your therapist (by using the “send report” feature).
  • It’s totally private. Your data is kept on your phone and is not shared with anyone. You can add additional security by adding a password, so that only you can open the App on your phone.
  • You can define daily/weekly reminders to use the App. For example, if you don’t have the ability to monitor your pulling during the day, you can set a daily reminder to use the app at a certain time in the evening.

What this App is NOT


This App is not therapy in and of itself. Although anyone with trichotillomania would benefit from using it, it cannot and does not replace treatment by a qualified professional. If you are looking for treatment, please consider our online therapy program. This monitoring App was designed specifically for our online therapy program clients, that’s why the best results can be expected by using it in conjunction with the program.
