Why does it feel sooo good when someone else plays with my hair but when I play with my hair I don't even feel it? ?

When someone else plays with my hair I get tingles and it feels amazing. However when I touch my own hair I can't feel anything .

    Your brain is a huge part of how you interpret sensations.  When you do it, the old brain knows it's just you.  When someone else does it, you get the feelings, sexual arousal, etc. all playing through your brain.  Same thing as running your hands over a sensitive part of your body versus someone else you really like doing it or imagine someone you can't stand doing it, the last thing you'll feel in the last case is arousal and pleasure.
