We are two college students who want to help people with trichotillomania. We bootstrapped funding from a GoFundMe and a College Pitch Event to bring a small cooling microbatch hair conditioner to life.
While there is no quick fix for trichotillomania, we believe there can be new ways to manage the disorder and help with hair re-growth.
By producing unique micro-batches with exceptional ingredients safely without sulfates, parabens, added fragrance, or color additives, we have the ability to create innovative new hair products that provide benefits to your scalp to help your hair flourish. Our products are made in the US and cruelty-free. Read more about us.
Our goal is to use botanical ingredients published in research to improve hair quality and promote growth.
What is Prohibere?
Prohibere is the first leave-in conditioner for trichotillomania that addresses the physiological aspect of the disorder. Prohibere provides a cooling and tingling sensation that helps relieve impulses to pull and also provides awareness of targeted pull areas to reduce bald spots. No other cooling and numbing product on the market is tailored for use in hair.
Prohibere was also found to help relieve vessel constriction associated with tension headaches and ocular migraines. It helps block the activation of the TRPA1 channel during a migraine episode.
