Anyone else suffer? I pluck the hair from my face, although not my eyebrows. Have to have tweezers with me all the time and sometimes make the corners of my mouth sore through digging.

Yes, I still pluck face hairs, but ended up with little bald spots on my head so I stopped as otherwise I'd end up with big bald areas! Now I hair twist instead.

Nice to know I'm not on my own. 😊

I hair twist daily but it sometimes breaks through into pulling or breaking, particularly if I'm stressed. If I didn't try very hard I could happily pull out most of it.

I do it excessively when stressed, so much that it gives me shoulder/elbow muscle strains.
But when I'm not stressed I do it gently and find it soothing, fiddling with my hair, definitely a stim for me.

I had this when I was a young teenager and was being bullied. I ended up with a small bald patch on my crown. I'm also a hair twister these days.

Not to mention a chin hair plucker Blush
