I pull out my hair / spli ends / need my hands in my hair / can't stop ... help?
When I was in eight grade, my older sister shared with me her concerns about split ends after reading an issue of Cosmopolitan. She always had beautiful hair. Anyway, after that (because my sister was so impressionable) I started focusing on my split ends. I started picking at my split ends and because I have such fine hair, I started pulling out my hair. I now (just turning 30 years old) continue to focus on my split ends. I pull my hair out all the time searching for split ends. I donít pull my eyelashes or any other hair out. I would do anything to stop and have normal hair but I canít. I pick all the time when I at work, at home, bored, and mostly driving. Again, mostly when my attention is short and I need something to do with my hands. Is there anything I can do? I have considered hypnosis but it is expensive. I donít feel comfortable if my hands are not in my hair picking and searching and even after I pull my hair out, I look for split ends. Any suggestions?
