Hey beautiful people,
So confession time...yes I am suffering from HIH (hand in hair) syndrome..I cant seem to get my fingers out of my hair..always fluffing , twirling and playing with my hair. I know y'all think this is harmless but its not and it can lead to some serious damage to my hair and scalp..smh Even as i post this I'm finding my self twirling my hair..
So wondering why this is not a good thing well so apparently besides encouraging frizziness, pulling, twisting, and twirling hair constantly can actually lead to or be symptomatic of a condition known as trichotillomania, an anxious disorder that presents itself as incessant hair pulling. This condition can also be a symptom of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
