    I do. I used this brand of hair oil recently and it makes my hair greasy and slick and I don't like the texture so it makes me not touch it in the area where I pull

    No definitely, I tend to like touch my hair more when it’s greasy and it leads to hair pulling, or when my hair is up I’ll pull the flyaways. It’s definitely because your hair is greasy so you’re thinking about it more.
