    I Was Just Doing It

    As I was surfing through my experiences I was sitting here twirling my hair. I love playing with my hair. It's long and just begs to be played with, so I guess my hands automatically mess with it, lol.

    I Don't Even Notice It!!!!!

    Wow, when I found this group you know what I was doing? I was twirling my hair! I read the group title and I looked at my hair twisted around my finger. You know those really horrid habits that you have? The ones that you don't even notice until someone points it out? Well...

    Poor Fingers!

    I was doing it just now, but, alas, I need both hands to type. My fingers are itching to get back to the twirling. They miss it already!! Do not fear fingers, your work shall be done soon!! Well, at least for a few minutes maybe. Whenever I've got nothing to do and my fingers...

    There is a word here for fidgeting that is 'Futtering' I am defined by my mother as being this and by many teachers in my primary and high school years. One of things I do subconsciously is play with my hair.  95% of the time, I wear my hair down and it is long, so it...

    During my sleep more

    than any other time, it seems. A nervous reaction, at times? A conscious characteristic?

    Been Caught Doing It

    I'll just be sitting there thinking about a paper, project or something. When my hand goes up to my hair and I start twirling the end around my index finger. Family, coworkers and friends will come up and say "What are you doing?" My answer is usually "Nothing why...

    I Look Like A Complete Nutter..

    I've been twirling my hair for as long as I can remember, worst part is I've always had long hair and always want long hair.. but I twirl it to the point where I tie it in massive knots that I then have to cut out (They are wound up so tight they are impossible to comb or tease...

    I Do! I Do!

    I know it's too bad but I twirl my hair with my fingers too. It's like cuddling myself, considering I have usually no one to cuddle me.

    Life Long Habit

    I have long hair that naturally dries to form loose curls so I've always played with it. I actually didn't even notice that it was a habit of mine until I was 13 and had my hair cut short...I realized that I kept reaching up to twirl hair that wasn't there!!

    I Twist My Hair Too!

    I twist my hair too - I've done it since I was a little girl! I always twist the same side, too, (the left side), so one side of my hair is always real wavy from it. My mother and my grandmother used to tell me all the time that I was going to "twist my...

    when I'm on the couch,

    or in bed. when I'm lazy I twirl my hair.. but it doesn't end there I twirl my gf's hair. don't know why but twirling is comforting. makes me feel safe and guess its an expression of love when doing it to a girl I like..

    I Twirl My Hair!

    I do triwl my hair when I play with it sometimes, but mostly, I twist it into ridiculously big spikey spikes. :-P

    All the Time!

     I really don't know why... I seem to do it while i'm thinking, daydreaming... I just twirl it round and round my fingers until it forms a sort of ringlet thing....Then I straighten it out and start again!    I'm doing it right now!

    I Twirl My Hair

    When I'm nervous, being a flirt, meeting new people, excited, stressed.   It's a weird habit - but I have the long hair to go with it, I also will chew my hair when I'm nervous.

    Pretty Much All the Time.

    especially now that my hair's getting longer. twirling it feels nice. and it's better than biting my nails.

    I Never Stop Touching It.

    It just comforts me somehow. I'm constantly told that it smells real good. My classmates often play with it randomly. I just like playing with it. It's thick, and perfect for running fingers through when I'm stressed. Or bored. Or cheery. Really, no occasion is needed. I am...
