Default So what's YOUR BAD hair habit?

In all honesty, I try to do all things right by my hair but I fall short on habits I'm fighting to get rid of...I not too long ago got over being rough when it comes to detangling & handling my hair, I'm much more patient and in order for me to maintain this alone I have to STAY thinking about it while I'm in the process. There are (2) main habits that I'm trying to kick though...

1- Snapping/Popping fairy knots...this habit is soooo bad that I'm not even aware half the time that I AM DOING IT. I'm seeking & destroying while at work, on the train etc... it's terrible

2-Peeling/Picking dry scalp scabs...I don't know if anyone else has this problem but I truelly don't know how this happens. I'm currently in a 2 strand twist protective style for a week now. I spritz my hair daily also moisturize my hair and scalp every other day. Just yesterday I noticed 2 dry scalp scabs, don't get me wrong...their not as intense as the scalp scab burns when one gets a perm but...u know what I mean. How is this happening and how do I stop it?...

So what's your BAD hair habit, if you have one?

1. Touching my hair excessively.
2. Styling my hair more than once in a day for NO reason besides playing around and experimenting.
3. Rough handling when I detangle b/c I'm in a hurry.

My hair feels really good to me (most of the time), so I'm always "feelin" it. I don't know...I just love the way it feels.

not being gently enough why detangling
touching my hair all the time but I had this issue for as long as I can remember
wanting it to look perfect all the time I'm learning to live with frizz

Scratching the crown of my scalp with my nails. It's just ASKING for breakage! My scalp gets SO dry there that I really can't help it sometimes. :/

I used to pop off my fairy knots but last summer I had to cut almost four inches off to even it out so that ended that one.

Mine is I often forget to wrap my hair at night and I am not gentle with detangling period.

Well instead of fairy knots, I looks for strands that have split and then pull it to get rid of the split strand look. I do this when I'm bored and when I'm studying.

Constant touching/twirling.
Twirling my hair is my big nervous habit. Given the past few days, there's been a lot of twirling going on.
I still sleep on a jersey pillowcase.

Popping fairy knots and not sealing my ends daily. I don't pop the knots often, so that's not too bad, but I've been slacking when it comes to sealing my ends. I do it when I think about it which is like twice a week.

Mostly constantly touching my hair. I was in class today and I constantly had my hands in my hair stretching out the curls and twirling them around my fingers. A weaved woman was sitting behind me and told me she couldn't believe how long my hair is. I know its probably annoying that I constantly play with my hair.

I peel or pick off my psoraisis too and it only makes it worse, but now that's it warmer and I'll be washing daily I won't have an many issues with itching.

I snip my hair near daily bc I'm obsessed with search and destroy missions. If you ain't curling right, you're gone.

Way way way back in the day as a child I used to pull my hair out. There are photos of me as a toddler with half the right side of my head (I'm right-handed) where hair is missing.

As an adult I've made strides somewhat -- I don't pull out my hair but I play (twirl, stretch) an excessive amount to the point where my scalp aches and I need to take an Excedrin for the soreness. Sad ain't it?

I think I do this when I'm bored, confused and stressed -- doing it more and more these days.
