Hair twirling or pulling: Many women have this habit. In the middle of a conversation their hands automatically reach up to their hair, and stays there twirling and pulling at it all through the talk.

What it does: This habit causes hair loss. It can lead to a serious form of hair disorder called trichotillomania, which is an impulse control disorder characterised by the loss of hair, thanks to the repeated urge to pull out scalp hair, eyelashes, facial hair, nose hair, eyebrows or other body hair, sometimes resulting in noticeable bald patches.
