That's the whole point with BFRBs, we want to catch the behaviors when they're subconscious, and this definitely does it... I love this company, their mission, the people who created this device, and how they are in the BFRB community.
I am a nursing student in San Francisco struggling with skin picking for a lifetime and this was a Godsend to see for me.
Keen has given my son a way to notice his behavior subtly. He would always get annoyed when we called him out and asked him to stop pulling his hair. His response was always "I'm not! I'm just scratching/rubbing/etc my head". This summer he's actually getting to grow his hair out 🙂
The Keen bracelet is easily mistaken for a sports bracelet. For instance, when I was checking into a hotel the front desk agent asked me 'oh what kind of sports bracelet is that?' Having it look like something else is super helpful.
I thought that Trichotillomania was something I would have to accept and live with for the rest of my life. I can’t believe I was able to retrain my brain and break free of it after just a few weeks with the help of Keen!
I just had enough regrowth because of Keen to afford me the opportunity to go to a beauty shop for a haircut without feeling embarrassed. The hair stylist cut and colored my hair in a most flattering way and for the first time in over 15 years I can wear my hair without having to try and disguise my patchy hair and spray it to prevent embarrassing situations. I wear my Keen proudly and it helps me to remind me to stop, think, and find something to do with my hands other than pull. I am feeling proud. I could not have done it without Keen, believe me I have tried everything. Thank you
It helped me manage skin picking in a matter of weeks more than I could have by myself in a decade.
I love your product for my dermatillomania (skin picking)...Thanks so much! This product saved my life! I can take pictures of my skin and not feel ashamed, even my boss noticed my progress! Thanks again!
