Is my hair distracting me or is it psychological?

So, like... My hair is down to the bottom of my neck... And whenever I bend my head down to read it brushes against my neck and bothers me, and I lose concentration...

Is this for real or am I crazy?

    People who don't really want to study will find anything as a distraction. I think youre just looking for something to make your not want to study.

    I have the same problem haha. I thought it was just me too!

    But no really, my hair is just at that awkward length touching my shoulders so when I'm trying to read a textbook/study it itches me. It's so annoying. My hair has always annoyed me like this because when I was little and in Chorus, I had to keep it tied back. So now when I leave it down when I'm doing anything (not just hw), it distracts me.

    But if you tie up your hair into a bun or something, it might help. That's what I do.

    Do you psych yourself into making your neck feel stiff?

    No, I don't think so...maybe I do it sub-consciously haha. But sometimes my hair annoys me so much when I'm reading that I put my neck in a bent position so my hair doesn't get in my way as much. Then, my neck REALLY gets stiff.

    I think it's pretty normal? i.e. My hair tickles my face a lot, which can get rather distracting.
