Sounds like a Daily Mail headline, doesn't it? :rolleyes:

I feel like a true longhair now that I'm having traumatic nightmares about scissors. Scissors wielded by pirates, no less. :pirate:

They chopped off one of my braids during a highly dramatic battle at sea, leaving me half-bob half-longhair. I freaked out. I took the detached braid with me, desperate to find someone who could turn it into a weave to attach to my head until my horrendous half-bob grew out.

Finding a hair extension specialist on a Caribbean island in the 18th century turned out to be quite difficult, actually.

I woke up frantic. Anybody else have nightmares about hair?

I did have a dream about being captured by this evil dude and his henchmen and taken across a river. There I was (along with a bunch of my long-haired friends) to be shaved bald and forced to work (or something). But, a few of us bribed the henchmen and they let us keep our hair. The rest of the dream I spent being the hero and leading everyone to safty. Woo!

Scissor-wielding pirates? I have to say, that is sort of awesome, though getting your hair hacked off isn't cool.

I always have these horrible dreams about my hair falling out. I'll be in the shower, then locks of it just come off in my hands until I have these dreadful bald spots everywhere.

It's terrible! I wake up all sick to my stomach, because I lose a lot of hair in real life, and one of my fears is that it's just going to come out in big chunks one of these days....

Yes, and I don't even have long hair yet! I had a dream the other night that I had finally grown it out enough to have a pony tail, and then some one cut it off! I was very disappointed :(

None recently, but as a till I was 12 I had a reoccurring dream where in class the kid behind me would cut off my pony tail. ikes.

Wow, that's an interesting dream, if scary. I've had a dream where my hair was cut off, though I was the one doing the cutting. I tried to do a self-trim and ended up with a bob! That was not fun.

Luckily, so far I have just had the 'yay my hair is finally my goal lengh' type dreams...I am just bummed when I wake up and still have 10 inches to go. :(

Dream pirates are kind of cool though!

They always involve fire at a concert, or my boyfriend trimming my hair and getting too enthusiastic.

What a weird dream!
I often have dreams about shaving my head, but in my dreams I always do it willingly. No one forces me.

I often have "hair moments" in my dreams, but the dream is rarely about the hair. Most often I walk past a mirror or something in the dream and see my bottom of ears-shoulderish length hair (it seems to always be somewhere in that range) and the funny part is that I don't even know I'm dreaming, like it's perfectly natural for my hair to be there.
Sometimes I catch myself thinking that this growing out business isn't so bad, because this is getting along quite rapidly. And it still feels perfectly natural, heheh.. Maybe because it's usually just 2-3 inches longer than my actual length.
It feels similar to that "real" feeling you get when you look in the mirror and realise your hair has grown noticeably since the last time you really looked.

I've occasionally had dreams where I cut my hair and don't realize until afterward that it's a lasting change, that I can't just put it back on. I usually take those dreams as a sign that I'm about to be too impulsive about something (usually not hair-related) - it represents other decisions that I can't just undo.

Y'know, this in combination with your sunbed dream are starting to make me fear for your sanity :p

I dreamt once that I cut my hair to shoulder-length and dyed it reddish purple and wondered how I would explain it to LHC .. oh dear :rolleyes:

I would imagine so..... :rolleyes:

Awrrr those bloody pirates! I dreamt once my hair was cut, but it was reasonable. Still weird though. I suppose haircut dreams will turn into nightmares when I have longer hair. More to lose....

One time when I was being super obsessed with my hair and playing with it before bed I ended up having a really cool dream where I had long hair! :D

Well, there was the time I was helping a dream-woman give birth to a piglet and a load of egg yolk... :D
