Hi, I'm new :-) I've been a hair puller since I was a teenager, and at the age of 41, I still reach for my hair when I'm stressed out, in fact I always do. It was worse when I was younger, and i did start pulling my eyelashes too. I'm kind of resigned to the fact that the urge will never go ( it never has in all these years) but it's less frequent and causes less damage, so i kind of live with it. I just wondered if anyone could relate to something ive found. When I reach for my hair and it's very clean, or freshly washed, I resist pulling- almost like the hairs not 'bad' and doesnt feel right to pull. Crazy I know, but the hairs I pull out are always the 'imposter' wiry hairs, that i feel im 'getting rid of' in a sort of perfectionist kind of way. So I can say my pulling is greatly reduced when I have cleaner hair. Anyone else find this?
