I've been styling hair particles for an asymmetrical look. To speed up my workflow, I turned on x-mirror in the particle edit tools panel when working on individual strands, then turning it off to create asymmetry. However, I left the x-mirror option on when I exited particle edit mode, and now whenever I return to particle edit mode, the entire system is forced into symmetry and half my work is undone!

hair particles in particle edit mode

Ctrl+z does not work here. What can I do to avoid losing half my work?
