So I know the majority of people twirl their hair. I also twirl my hair and anything else string like. I love twirling my shoe laces or the strings from pajama pants. Does anyone else do this? I feel like I am the only one!

Re: Twirling!

Hi there, I LOVE twirling my hair! I am nearly 48 and twirl all the time. I even do the same as you and twirl anything thats twirlable like pj cords. I think its a sign of anxiety - it helps you relax. My sister who is 32 has taken on this habit and her little son does the same. I don't see it as an OCD, don't worry. Although sometimes I twirl my hair so tight I end up in knots!

Re: Twirling!

I am KNOWN for constantly twirling my hair. I suppose it's a "nervous habit"? People point it out to me all the time and make small jokes. Not a huge deal to me...but I really don't even realize I am doing it sometimes! I guess I just like the way my hair feels in my fingers. I also pick at the split ends. A lot.
