I just found this board and figured I'd make a post because I believe I have some form of OCD, I cannot keep my hands out of my hair, I'm not pulling it out or anything like that, but I have locs, and i keep messing with them, and the back of my hair, i keep pulling at it, and playing in it, and twisting it. I try to tell myself to stop, but I keep doing it uncontrollably. Someone once told me it could be stress or anxiety, is this true, and are there any tricks to getting me to stop doing it, do I need to see a doctor for this? Once I tried conditioning myself to stop, what I did was wear a rubber band on my wrist, and whenever I did it, I would snap the rubber band really hard to punish myself. It worked for a little while, but then I forgot to snap the rubber band everytime because I did it so much, and it started again, anything else I can try? it's driving me crazy!
