I have been trying to use the Refine mask edge tool, when I am in the process of painting around the hair, the fly away hairs are being erased including the hair? Instead of more appearing its eliminating what should be appearing? I'm not sure if my settings for photoshop cs5 should be changed. I have been watching videos and still no luck?

What am I doing wrong?

Do you have "Smart Radius" Checked? What is your Radius slider setting?

Have you tried this video tutorial?
