"Hi, I'm Samantha. I am 12-1/2 and started pulling my eyelashes when I was 6 years old. At first everyone thought it was just a bad habit. By 7 all of my lashes were gone, and at 8 I started pulling out my eyebrows. I've basically had a naked face for over 6 years. At 11, in November 2015, I began pulling out my hair, and by May of 2016, I shaved what was left of my hair. I'm hopeful that Keen will alert me when I'm zoning out pulling, and alert my parents of the patterns of when I'm pulling. So we can substitute with an alternative and more positive behavior."
