Our Customers Trichotillomania Journey
What trichotillomania means to us at Glow For It:
At Glow For It, we love receiving feedback from our lovely customers letting us know how they’re getting on using our products and seeing their gorgeous growth journeys and transformations. What’s been amazing to hear is that some of our clients have been using our growth serums to target the symptoms of trichotillomania with some incredible results. They’ve kindly shared their stories with us, and now we would like to share them with you!
This week’s Glow Goss is all about raising awareness around what trichotillomania is and how to treat some of the long term side effects that come with this. Please note, that our serum is NOT a cure, but it can help those who have experienced extreme lash loss as a result of trichotillomania. At the bottom of this post we are going to share some helpful links to charities and organisations that can help those currently experiencing and suffering with trichotillomania.
What Is Trichotillomania?
Trichotillomania is a compulsive desire to pull your hair out. This results in repeatedly pulling hair out, usually from the scalp. However, eyebrows, eyelashes and other body areas are also sites where hair pulling can occur.
A cause of trichotillomania is stress and anxiety, as pulling hair out becomes a way to deal with these emotions. There may be a feeling of increased tension before pulling the hair out or when resisting this action. This is then followed by a sense of relief or pleasure when the hair pulling is fulfilled.
It can be difficult for people with trichotillomania to resist pulling their hair out, which can result in bald patches in the area where the hair has been pulled from (such as the eyelashes or eyebrows). In turn, this can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and low self-esteem.
At Glow For It, we want everyone to always look and feel their best which is why we were so happy to hear that our products have helped many people with trichotillomania to grow back their hair in the areas affected by hair pulling.
But don’t just take our word for it! Here are some incredible stories from some of our gorgeous Glow Girls who have trichotillomania and have shared their growth journeys using our products…
Annie’s Story: “I wish I’d found your serum sooner!”
After using our Glow For It Lash Growth Serum for 8 weeks, Annie decided to get in touch with us to let us know how well the product has worked for her.
Annie has suffered from trichotillomania for years, and told us that she had tried many other lash serums in the past to combat it but nothing ever worked for her. She found our Glow For It Lash Growth Serum on TikTok (@glowforitgirl). Although Annie saw all our amazing reviews, she admitted to us that she was a little sceptical at first as she had tried so many growth serums before and had been repeatedly disappointed.
Lucky for us, she decided to give our Glow For It Lash Growth Serum a go!
In her own words, Annie told us: “All I can say is I wish I found your serum sooner!!”. Well, don’t worry, you’ve found us now!
Remember, Annie had only been using our product for 8 weeks and she was already seeing incredible results.
Annie said: “I was not expecting the results I have achieved in such little time I am so so happy with the length my lashes have got to and they feel so much stronger (and continue to grow and get stronger each day!!).”
Just take a look at these before and after pictures that Annie sent us… The first picture is how her lashes looked back in mid-December, while the second shows what her lashes look like today!
Annie mentioned that she gets lots of compliments on her eyelashes now, and we can definitely see why! Before using Glow For It Lash Growth Serum, Annie felt like she had to wear strip lashes every day and couldn’t see that ever coming to an end. But with the help of our product, Annie no longer feels like she needs false lashes all the time! We definitely don’t think she needs strip lashes anymore!
“This really does say what it does on the bottle and so much more”, Annie commented about our Glow For It Lash Growth Serum.
Annie told us that she’s still on her first bottle after 8 weeks, and that she “wanted to say thank you for making a product that genuinely works and gives incredible results”. Well, to that we say thank YOU Annie for using our products. We are always overjoyed to have such lovely feedback and happy customers!
Roxanna’s Story: “I will definitely be ordering more”
Roxanna reached out to us after using our Glow For It Lash Growth Serum for a month to tell us all about the results she has achieved. After only one month, Roxanna told us that she was “already seeing such good results” and “will definitely be ordering more”!
As someone who has trichotillomania, Roxanna wanted to order a lash serum to target her symptoms. Roxanna told us that the majority of her lashes remained short and stubby due to her constantly pulling them out. She then said: “But now they have grown longer than I’ve ever seen them and I’m so happy!”. We’re so happy for you too, Roxanna!

Molly’s Story: “Your product is the only thing that’s helped me”
Another customer who suffers for trichotillomania is Molly. She got in touch with us after using our Glow For It Lash Growth Serum. Before using our product, Molly had bald patches on her lashes due to repeatedly pulling out her eyelashes (see the images below).
However, now she’s had a total transformation! Molly reached out to us to tell us: “I’ve suffered with trichotillomania for so long and your product is the only thing that’s helped me”. We are so happy to hear that our product has helped you, Molly. We hope that it can continue to help many others, too!
Look at Molly’s fabulous lash growth journey below to see how lovely and long her eyelashes look now…
