I'm trying to use the channels method to select wispy hair on a model. I copy the blue channel (best contrast) and select it but then if I use Ctrl+L to open levels the copied blue channel is not selected or selectable so I'm unable to adjust it. However opening levels via the Image/Adjustments/Levels menu route works fine.

Thats because using the Adjustment Levels automatically creates a layer mask based on your selection.

The Layers menu option does not.
