Obsession over hair.

Postby dragonsword » Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:08 pm

I did not think my obsession would reach such a point where I would feel the need to ask strangers for help. I hope that doesn't sound rude, but I wish I could've taken control of it by myself. For the past year or so, I have had this unhealthy obsession with my hair. It will end up to the point where I'll have a breakdown over it (silly I know). Most importantly now, it consumes my every thoughts and influence's my mood extremely much so. I always find something to nitpick about my hair and I am always asking people if it looks good, if I should style my hair a different way or cut it. I am so caught up in what others think of my hair. I am never fully content with it. I'm sick of it revolving around my thoughts so much. I want it to stop so badly, I don't want to care about my appearance so much and hate how I look to the core because of it. I would really appreciate some advice.

(I believe this all stemmed from people previously saying my hair is the best feature about me.)

Dragonsword, are you male or female? Actually the suggestion by laureat is definitely worth thinking about. Reading your post I was thinking about the causes of and nature of obsession however in this instance a much simpler solution may well be at hand. If you're male you should seriously think about shaving your head completely (temporarily) and while doing so tell yourself while looking in the mirror that this is you effectively binning your obsession over your hair. If there's no hair to be obsessed about how can you obsess over it?

If you're female this obviously could be more problematic but that shouldn't stop you considering it.

Thank God you didn't grow up in the 80's. Men wore as much hairspray as the girls.
