This probably sounds strange, but I am having an issue with my hair and I have been for several days now. I thought it’d go away on its own, but I think it’s gotten worse. I can’t stop touching it to make it “feel” the way I need it to “feel”, if that makes sense? I usually tuck it behind my ear, but I can’t even do that because I’ve redone it so many times because it isn’t tucking/feeling right. I can feel it touching my neck, and I have to keep moving it away or running my fingers though it. It almost feels like a compulsion? As if it’s in my mind that I HAVE to do these things. I don’t know, but it’s about to drive me INSANE. Please give any tips or advice, I’m desperate at this point.

      omg feel this so hars. i experience something similar, but im still at the point where i can ignore it momentarily while im doing immediate tasks. Before i used to have a problem with complusivly pulling out hair combined with constantly futzing with it so i cut my hair into a pixie cut and it helped a lot. i did a shot undercut so it was basically just the "bangs" /long section on top and i kept it short enough that it couldnt tuck behind my ear or cover my eyes too much, and everything else was shaved. Plus waaaay easier to maintain, and bc most of ur head is shaved u dont need a super expensive hair dresser to do a bunch of fancy layers. i know this isnt practical for everyone but it was surprisingly effective for me :)
