You know when the hairs first start turning upside down and wind themselves up? Like, you can see the white root of your hair follicle just hanging there, taunting you, saying, "pull me out! pull me out! I'm supposed to be hanging the other way but I'm dead so get rid of me!" Yeah. THOSE!
I'm in my... third? fourth? I lost count.. week now and I swear that I have developed a new OCD -- staring at those upside down hairs in my locks in the mirror and trying to make them go away by death glare alone. I've picked more than a few out by now and every time I slap myself because I only realize what I'm doing when the hair is hanging there from my finger tips already pulled out of my dreads.UGH! Frustrating!
How do you guys deal with this compulsion? Besides the obvious mantra of, "don't pull. don't pull. don't pull."
