I am OCD about picking out my split ends. Its terrible. When I drive I have to make sure my hair is pulled back. It distracts me. I even just went andchopped off my hair. AND I STILL HAVE THEM!

lol Ive been doing it since I was about 11.  Anyone else have this weird habit?

I used to have hair down to my butt and it was easier to pick at my split ends.. I used to see how far it can go without completely splitting lol I just chopped it all off so now I can barely put it in a ponytail let alone pick at it.

Idk if it's a habit but I play with my hair a lot. I do DV videos and in all my videos, I irritate myself with that. Ugh.

I scratch my head for no reason. It sucks, i'll pick a hole in my head. I need to calm down.

I pick at my scalp, it's really fucked up and disgusting, ditto that for the skin on my fingers.

LOL OCD!

Really? I do that with my arm hair or the loose hair in my eyebrows. Like I pluck them out with my fingers. just enough for the ones that are shedding to come out. I used to pull my hair out of my head but just to look for split ends. Not enough for there to be missing spots or anything though.

when I eat starbursts i open the package and then arrange them in order...red, pink, orange and yellow if there is an extra of a color I throw it away...when I eat them I fold the paper back up and put it back in the wrapper...DH use to fuck me up when he would take two...its like I couldnt eat them if it wasnt like that and DH thought it was the funniest thing because I would look so lost

Yeah my hair was almost that long. They cut 18 inches off just a week ago. But I still have split ends, probably because I straighten it so much
