Here’s how YOU can take control of hair pulling (trichotillomania), skin picking (dermatillomania), and nail biting:
(1) Using our HabitAware app to track encourages you to maintain your “Current Streak” for hair pulling (trichotillomania), skin picking (dermatillomania) or nail biting.
(2) Adding the Keen smart bracelet to your recovery toolkit builds your awareness of these trancelike behaviors and empowers you to change your behavior.

Here’s the details:
We’ve specifically designed our app to allow anyone with hair pulling, skin picking, or nail biting to MANUALLY track their behavior. Just download the app for FREE and get started today. Each time you realize you are hair pulling, skin picking, or nail biting, just open the app & tap a button to track it!

The data you input will help you understand patterns and triggers. Once you know WHEN the behavior is happening you can EXPLORE ways to replace the behavior and take control.

(2) Join the Keen family at HabitAware.com
HabitAware’s Keen is your guide to awareness. Invented by a hair puller, Keen uses patented gesture detection technology to recognize when you are hair pulling (trichotillomania), nail biting, skin picking (dermatillomania), or thumb sucking.

Keen’s vibration is like a “hug” on your wrist and your “self care” alarm. As you build awareness of your restless hands and use the vibration as a cue to practice healthier soothing mechanisms, you can Retrain Your Brain.

Pretty good so far!

I've had trichotillomania for 4 years now and haven't been able to stop. Nothing's worked. And my mom found this for me and I just started using it today! So far, it's amazing! It buzzed once and my hand went flying down, away from my head. This is great so far. I have high hopes for this🤞❤️

Thank God

I have pulled out large swaths of hair near he back of my head. My parents finally stepped in and got me this. I was wary, but it was quick and easy to set up and use! I have high hopes!!

Out of the box experience? Not good...

So I have set up, deleted, re set up bracelet(s). They register my movement and vibrate like they are suppose to. What they won’t do? Register or vibrate when pushing the button to log, thus far rendering them useless. I just really didn’t expect to have an issue, and certainly thought starting over would have fixed the problem. So I have a “ticket” open, and will change review once I can get the things to work as advertised .
