Default My name is CE and I have a problem.

I can't stop touching my wet hair. My hair ends up frizzy and gross and I shake my fist at...myself? for touching my hair AGAIN.

Okay, I accept I have a problem. Now what?

Find something else to do while you dry.

Buy a diffuser.

Send me brownies.

Talk/type to us while your hair is drying and you'll be ok!

Should we start a hair-touchers anonymous?
But my hair is so long, I sort of have to touch it, and it flops around and gets messed up anyway. And I keep touching it to see if it's dry.
I guess I can't help you.

Agreed - this is what I do, too. But mostly because my hair is so long that if I don't, it's gonna wind up in my face, tangled around my arm or even my shoulder, or in my little girl's fist. It just looks better this way when I take it down.

I'm pretty good about not touching, but I'm also not that strict about it. I don't find any ill effect from touching the ends and twirling them around my finger. It's all about not touching the canopy and the crown for me!
And on the bright side, confessing to touching your hair before it dries is still much better than being a member of PJ's Anonymous like so many of us!

I use KCCC and it feels so gross I hate touching my hair when it's wet after I put it in. That's really the only thing that keeps me from touching mine.

Success! I didn't go near a mirror! No touchy touchy here!

I didn't plop and clipped, and I didn't want to screw up the clips, and my hair is really nice today. A+ for clipping! I'm not sure if it really made much of a difference, or if it was the no-plop. In any case, I'm happy.
