Any other touchers out there?

HAIR touchers of course! lol

I am self sabotaging my efforts to create sleek frizz free curls by touching my hair!!! I can't seem to help it though, I like to plump up my hair when it starts to get a bit less body, I like to sort of lift it off my scalp when it feels heavy and hot, I like to touch my curls... oh dear.
3b-c, growing it out (it's really short right now, peices in the front just touch my nose if I stretch them out! lol), no-poo, no cones
Ha ha, you are definitely not alone! Throughout the day, my fingers are drawn like magnets to my curls, and if I see one I think is 'out of place', I have to fiddle and fuss until I think it looks right. I blame the mirrors, lol!

I have the same problem, LOL! I cannot stop touching my hair - I love it. I like to plump my hair throughout the day too, and I love to twist my ringlets around my finger while I'm working - an almost subconsious, "nervous" habit (although I'm not nervous, I just do this absent-mindedly). It is a terrible downward spiral: the better my hair feels/nicer it looks, the more I touch; the more I touch it, the more I probably mess it up. Haha -oh well
2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

lol well what are we supposed to do?? have these bomb-tastic curls/waves/kinks and not touch?? ha!

unfortunately, i like to play with my edges, which makes them dry and stick off my head! i also twirl the ends of my hair (although i'm starting to kick this habit!), which means single strand knots.
