Unhappy Addicted to playing with my hair?? - May 28th 2013, 10:17 PM

okay, so I guess I can say that im addicted to playing with my hair?? i don't know why i do this. but i like to look for spit ends in my hair, and i like to split them. also sometimes i will just pull out my hair where i see a split end at. and sometimes when i find hair on my head that is really short, i just pull it out. I feel like a freak, and i don't know what to do about this problem. I don't even know what to call this problem. i know that it distracts me from my school work and i do it when im mostly alone or not near my friends. I feel like a freak... Please Help!!

Being addicted to playing with your hair is better than being addicted to something else like self-harm, so its not that bad. You don't have to feel like a freak I think everyone does weird things that not many people do.
Every time you want to pull your hair out think about how pretty it is and how bad it would be if most of your hair was missing. Have you tried plating your hair instead of pulling some strands out?

Well, this doesn't seem harmful, which is good. I've found myself with similar behaviors though, I also obsessively pull out split ends. I've found that this is really bad for your hair as well, it just makes hairs all different lengths and then you might have to cut it eventually. For me, the solution was easy, I've found that if my hair was up I couldn't play with it as much, and there wasn't as much of a temptation. Could this be a nervous habit as well? Do you notice yourself playing with it when you are nervous? Anywhoo, I hope I've helped at least a little bit

Yes I do play with it when I do get nervous ... but ive tried to keep my hair up, but I cant control myself and I end up putting it down I don't know what to do to fix this. Its takes a lot of my time up, and I just want to stop
