Some people tend to pull at night and find that sleeping with the product in all night and then showering in the morning, helps improve hair quality with overnight moisturizing and strengthening.
Do you test on animals?
No, products we offer have never been tested on animals.
How effective is Prohibere for help with trichotillomania? What evidence do you have that this can help?
Every person is unique but we hope this will help by creating an intense cooling sensation to temporarily help fight strong pulling urges as competing response or by creating an awareness of where pulling is occurring to prevent bald spots.
Dr. David Dia published a scientific peer reviewed paper on a successful case study for using a numbing cream as adjunct treatment for trichotillomania.
Additionally, there has also been another small study with 3 participants that showed awareness products helped reduce pulling.
Can I use Prohibere is if I have Trichophagia (hair eating disorder)?
No, our ingredients are not safe for ingestion.
What evidence shows Prohibere will help with migraines?
Our product contains natural ingredients that have been scientifically shown to improve circulation in the skin which can reduce vessel constriction associated with migraines. Additionally, there are more recent studies that show the new TRPA1 pathway can provide migraine relief. Our ingredients have been studied and shown to block the TRPA1 channel.
