    Hi WavySarah, I believe that this is called Trichtollomania (not sure on the spelling) and its the act of pulling/twisting hair out. There is a thread for it here I believe. I used to do it as a nervous habit but now I am much more aware,cautious and have been able to break this habit. Good luck to you.

    rinse out/leave in conditioner~ Tresemme Moisture,GVP Balm, Suave Shea and Almond
    Deep Con and Detangling~ Mixed Silk,Elasta QP (now with olive oil!)
    Stylers/Oils~ SheaMoisture DTM, Africa's Best Herbal Oil, ,Grapeseed oil/Tresemme Thermal Spray (great for diffusing/heat) all shea oils

    No not pulling out just playing with hair which caused my hair to break off. But yeah am working really hard to be aware of it so that I can stop

    I didn't pull mine out either but I did twirl it around my finger 'til it would break off.
    It'll get easier, hang in there :happy8:
