what is the best way to select hair in photoshop elements 8? I have tried to play with the levels, the saturation and a combination of the two, but no luck, it still looks like ive chopped the hair with a pair of scissors, any tips or ideas will be appricitaed

PS Im trying to avoid using a plug in to do it, I know there are some avaliable, but im trying to achieve the result with no extras
