You can't. lol I have the same problem and they will stop when they want to. We get onto her every time we see her "hands in her face" and have done so for over a year. She still hasn't stopped and I can only hope that she will before she turns 5.

My son does the same thing with my hair. It's usually when he's tired or if we're quietly sitting doing something. He was breastfed and nursed for over a year and started the hair thing when he stopped nursing. He even does it to his older brother sometimes who has longer hair than I would like. It's definately just a comfort thing for them and I am sure they will grow out of it like anything else. Can't offer any help for the thin hair though I have the same problem as Jennifer knots in my hair all the time lol.

I don't know what to tell you but wanted to give my support anyway as my son does this to MY hair and I have come away with some nasty knots! I have tried to encourage blankies, and stuffed animals but nothing works. Maybe just takes time.
