The Meaning Behind Your Most Common Hair Dreams

Dreams reveal everything from our deepest desires to our biggest fears. And this rings true even for hair dreams. Even a simple vision of brushing your stands can share a ton about your wants and needs in life.

As there are a number of different hair dreams one can have, we decided to decode some of the more common ones. From having tangled tresses to losing your locks, scroll below to discover the meaning behind your slumber-induced fantasies!

Dreaming of Tangled Hair

When you drift off to sleep, do you often see your hair completely tangled? This means you’re experiencing some uncertainty and confusion in your day-to-day life. Typically, it pertains to something going on in your relationship. You may know exactly what the root cause is or have to do a little bit of digging, but it’s good to do just that to solve the issue.

Dreaming of Brushing or Combing Your Hair

Brushing or combing your hair in a fantasy may feel like nothing to write home about, but there’s plenty of meaning packed into it. While tangled tresses tell you to solve a problem, hair that can be combed through notes you’ve found a solution and are already solving it. Good on you!

Dreaming You Have Long Hair

As you may interpret, long hair visions tend to deal with time. You’ve either been working on something for a very long period or have been thinking about something for quite a while. Though it’s critical to make a plan, you also need to take action. You have everything in order, so act now.

Dreaming You Have Short Hair

Seeing yourself with short hair in your dreams is generally symbolism for some sort of change that’s occurring or will come in your life. It could also be interpreted as you feeling free to let things go and fully express who you truly are.

Dreaming You Have White or Gray Hair

Having white or gray hair may be more of a nightmare for some, but it really isn’t all that bad, we promise. It can mean you’re fearful of getting old, which is very fitting. Another interpretation is that you’ve gained some sort of knowledge or insight, as the hue represents wisdom. Depending on your dream, we’ll let you figure out which meaning works best.

Dreaming of Wearing a Wig

In real life, wigs are so much fun. They’re a great way to see yourself in various lights. In fantasy, they symbolize you feeling as if you’re not being your most authentic self. You may be hiding who you are from the world, so work on finding ways to let who you really are shine through.

Dreaming of Cutting Your Hair

Don’t take this as a sign to cut your own hair, because it does not mean that. Even if it comes out good in your dream, that may not be the case in real life. Anyway, this is another vision that has a few meanings. It can indicate something is causing you to feel worried or sad. You may feel stressed out or upset in real life. Alternatively, it can also mean you’re taking charge and cutting out bad habits. You likely know which meaning fits best, based on what’s going on in your life.

Dreaming of Dyeing Your Hair

Again, don’t take this as a sign to dye your hair. Obviously, this is a vision all about changes you’ve made in your life. They can be positive or negative, it all sort of depends on the color you dye your locks in the dream. For example, going blonde may be an indication you want to be more carefree. Dyeing your tresses brown can mean you need more stability. Still, dyeing your hair in general points to changes brewing.

Dreaming of Hair Loss

Not the most exciting dream to have, this type of vision isn’t entirely bad. Though it does mean you may be feeling weak or vulnerable in your life, it’s a reminder to be there for yourself. So the next time you wake up from this nightmare, treat yourself to a self-care day. That’s something we could all use more of anyway.
