What are possible meanings for dreams of hair?
Because hair grows from the head and thoughts are associated with the head, the primary dream symbolism of hair relates to thoughts and thought processes.
For example, crazy hair can indicate crazy thoughts.
Knotted hair or dreadlocks can indicate confusion or inability to think something through.
Kinky or curly hair can symbolize convoluted thoughts.
Combing hair can symbolize putting thoughts in order.
Cutting hair can symbolize simplifying thought processes.
Then there are common metaphors that use hair as symbolism. Letting hair down can symbolize relaxing inhibition. Messing up hair can symbolize a “bad hair day” or disorder. Pulling hair out can express frustration or stress. It can be a sign of illness.
Washing hair can symbolize the nightly process of clearing the memory banks to make room for the next day, or cleaning up your thoughts or thought processes. It can symbolize trying to forget a bad memory.
Washing hair is associated with the routine of getting ready to go out in public or just face the day. Washing hair can be part of the ritual of getting ready for work or school, so the association can be used to create symbolism related to preparation. For example, you prepare ahead of time for a meeting by thinking through what you want to ask and say. See: Showers
Dreaming about changing your hairstyle can symbolize a new approach or self-image. The idea ties in with how a change in hairstyle can indicate a new phase of life or other big change. For example, you change your hairstyle before taking a new job, so you project a more professional image. A great haircut can change your life. It can show a new outlook or perspective, a new phase of life, or a “new you.”
Because hair is used to cover the head, it can symbolize wanting to hide something about yourself, especially your thoughts or appearance. It can mean you’re uncomfortable showing who you really are. This use of the symbolism will show in details such as the face being covered or obscured by hair.
Very long hair is associated with being instinctual or natural. It can symbolize the long, slow process of growth in your mind, emotions, or inner being. It can be a sign of a deep intellect.
Vanity is a possibility for symbolism when you dream about being obsessed with your hair, or a character makes fun of your hair. Being made fun of can be a way of having your ego punctured, or indicate self-consciousness.
Dying your hair an extravagant color can symbolize a desire to stand out or express your individuality. It can mean you don’t care if some people think you’re eccentric or weird, or you do things your way and don’t care what other people think. See: Colors
Touching someone’s hair has sensual and intimate connotations. It suggests personal or physical closeness, because you generally have to be close with someone to touch the hair. It can be a sign of trust and letting your guard down. It can symbolize understanding a person’s thoughts or connecting on a personal level.
Removing body hair can symbolize cleaning up your image or getting ready for a big personal change. For example, after a summer away from college, a student dreams about plucking long hairs from his feet, symbolizing that he knows when school starts again he’s going to busy.
Removing body hair can mean you’re willing to make sacrifices to fit in socially. Or it can show discomfort with instinctual drives. For example, a man dreams about shaving off his pubic hair, showing that he’s uncomfortable with sex and disconnected with something that should come naturally.
Removing body hair or head hair can symbolize wanting to see what’s inside or beneath, such as when one is truly getting to know a person, or trying to understand a subject or situation.
Hair that grows or covers the body like fur can symbolize something that protects or guards you physically or psychologically, such as a protective instinct or even your persona. It can symbolize a period of being idle, such as being on a long vacation or home for summer break and “letting it all hang out.”

Removing fur from the body can symbolize denying your instincts and instinctual drives. It shows discomfort with the body or bodily processes. See: Animals

I had a dream i found Love, and felt it completely.
last night i had a very vivid dream of myself, with a girl, this girl had brown hair in a ponytail and was quite cute, in the dream i remember us being deeply in love, we had a very special bond, cared for each other deeply, and this feeling of her next to me laying her head on my shoulder, felt like pure bliss and throughout the dream, these moments made me feel 1000% complete, it was so strong of a feeling, it felt like the Euphoria from Ecstasy (MDMA), and that i had reached a point in my life where this is all i would ever need. this wasn't a dream about sex however, it was a dream that showed me the deep emotion 2 loving partners share, it was absolute bliss, and felt extremely real. when i woke up, i realised it never happened and this caused a moment of depression.
Any opinions on what this might mean?
Thanks Guys in advanced. XD

In this dream people kept referring to me as "Lucifer." As in the devil. But instead of seeing me as a devil, they saw me as their angel. It's as if a religion was formed around me. One day in the dream, I decided I want to travel. It's been a while since I traveled anywhere so I decided I wanted to visit the countryside. Two people came with me, again they still refer to me as Lucifer. At this point I got used to it, but I'm still mildly annoyed by it. We reach the country side, it was just fields and fields of wheat, the warmth of the sun was pleasant, and the cool breeze made the wheat dance. (not literally)
Then I saw this boy. He was short, had white hair, and he was wearing a cloak. He was crying on the side of the road. I didn't just want to leave a random crying person on the side of the road, so I approached them. And when he saw me, his face lit up and he asked "Are you Lucifer?" Seeing the fact that the title Lucifer being given to me made people happy, I decided that I'd embrace the title. I told the boy that I am indeed Lucifer. And he became so happy that he hugged me. I went back to my two followers along with the boy. We stayed and enjoyed the countryside. And the dream ended abruptly.

I am a deer man. The devil is behind me and stroking my ears.
In my dream, I am part human and part deer. Kind of like an anime in that I am mostly still human, but I had deer ears on top of my head (also human ears, too) and maybe deer nose and eyes.
Behind me is what I assume or interpret as the devil. A man with long horns, but his face looks either goat-like or dragon-like. I recall him having a long neck that looked lizard-like, which went along with the dragon-like appearance. His hands could move and bend like human hands, but they also seemed talon-like. He was taller than me by a foot or two.
He is standing behind me and at first rubs his hands through my hair to make his way to my deer ears, where he strokes them together. I can see all this very clearly as I believe I am looking through a mirror or am seeing this as the spectator but still can feel what he is doing. In truth, having my deer ears stroked feels nice. As I continue to watch and feel him stroking me, I notice he keep nodding his head in agreement. I feel he is answering "yes," but I do not fully recall the question.
As good as this feels, I sense I could be in danger, though I am uncertain if I am or not. The fear alone is enough to cause me to start to wake up.
I am starting to wake up; the end of the dream is a bit unclear... But he tries to say something which I cannot hear. He presents to me a bone, which comes from him. I am uncertain if the bone came from him picking his teeth or picked the bone out of his neck. The bone is either a collarbone, rib bone, or neck bone. As I wake up, I sense a feeling as if he is upset that I am leaving without first accepting his offering.
At this point, I am awake. What do you think of my dream?

I’ll never forget this dream. 18 years ago when I was 10, I lived an entire life in a single night.
It began with me playing outside, I was a child and had siblings, loving parents, it was was in a mideval time era. I remember my teenage years, I learned archery and swordplay (archery was my prowess) and joined the military as a young man. I served as a guard for my town and then was called away to war. Over the years, I progressed from soldier, to captain, to general, then eventually king.
I married and had children and eventually grandchildren. Then at the end of my life I remember sitting alone on a chair in the woods; fall had come, dead leaves blowing by on a wind that promised snow was not far away. I remember appreciating my life and my loved ones as my long gray hair blew across my face in the wind. I remember a single tear falling from my face as I knew my time had come to die. Then my life flashed before my eyes, in reverse, back to when I was a child, and with a white light I awoke in my bed with tears on my face.
I cried in earnest then, for the loss of those I loved, knowing that even though they werent real, Id never see them again. I’ll never forget that dream, it was... yeah, no word can describe it, surreal doesnt do it justice. I was 10.

Another Weird Dream
Now I had a different dream last night. It has terrified me.
It starts with me in a field full of beautiful flowers and I’m staring at the starlit night sky. I hear someone walking towards me and I look in the direction they’re coming from. It’s another beautiful man and he’s smiling at me. He was tall like 6’3 or so with raven black hair and bright blue eyes. His features were so...I don’t know I guess I’d go with the word enchanting. Standing in front of me he smiles and says, “You look ravishing today milady.” I looked down at my outfit and im wearing this beautiful floor length black and gold glitter dress. As he stood in front of me, He held out his hand, He also said, “Come with me. Come with me to a world so beautiful you’ll never want to leave. Escape with me.” I smiled at him and nodded even though I didn’t know who it was. I gave him my hand and we started running. Running in the fields, through the forest, all the way to the beach. We are walking on the beach and it’s suddenly day time. It was maybe 1-2 in the afternoon but it was only minutes of running to me. As I look down to take my shoes off so they don’t get dirty, I look over at him and realize he has no shadow. I get extremely confused and ask him about it. He shakes his head and then says, “Can you give me your name?” I was confused because everyone I knew always said, “Can you tell me your name?” Never “give”. I give him a confused look and I say, “No. I will not give you my name. I can tell you it but not give it to you...” and I tell him my nickname. He smiles and leans down to kiss me when I wake up.
I don’t know what’s going on anymore. But one thing I know for sure...is that he was not something or someone normal...
