Dreams are your windows to your higher self, and seeing your hair there is seeing your inner self and mindset. The state of your hair in your dream signifies your character as well. If you have noticed the color and style you had, those symbolize your way of thinking.

If you wondered, “what is the meaning of someone pulling my hair,” all you have to do is note down as many details of your dream as you can and then set on to interpreting each symbol alongside the connotation of the central theme of what you have seen.

Having someone pull your hair in a dream means that someone is against something that you are doing or a characteristic that you may have. You may feel defensive or frustrated about it. 

If you find yourself consistently curious about what your dreams mean, you should consider doing what I do, and just keep my absolute favorite dream dictionary on your bedside table.

Not only is it fun to browse through, but when you wake up in the mornings and the dreams are fresh on your mind, this is the absolute best time to find an accurate interpretation.

If you aren’t going to get a dream dictionary, you should at least consider keeping a simple dream journal by your bedside. I can’t emphasize enough how important it can be to reflect back on your dreams. I personally use this beautiful hardcover one from Amazon.

Someone Pulling Your Hair In A Dream – What It Means

The hair that someone pulls in your dream may be your head hair, armpit hair, arm or leg hair, or pubic hair. The most common hair that is pulled in dreams is the head hair.

Your hair is most abundant in the head, and its lushness and state tell its own story in your dream as much as the thing that it underwent – being pulled – does.

What does someone is pulling my hair because I asked him or her to in the dream mean?

Dreaming of someone pulling your hair because you asked them to denotes that you are wishing someone will just swoop in and get rid of your mental stress for you.

It may also symbolize the part of yourself that wishes to set you free from your emotional burden or to at least lighten the load that you currently carry.

You may want to think over which part of you had been wishing to reign in your waking life and decide to let it take the reins. 

What does someone pulling my eyelash hair in my dream mean, and what if it fell out?

Your partner may cheat or your co-worker may go behind your back and hit you where it hurts. If only one eyelash falls, though, good luck is coming to you.

What does it mean if someone suddenly pulls my hair in my dream?

Someone pulling your hair in your dream means you are confused about life at the moment. You may be suffering from a lack of communication, and your thought processes and levels of understanding may be limited.

You may also be rash and aggressive, and your subconscious had sent you a warning to take it easy before you get entangled in worse problems that may involve others as well.

You may only take things at place value and choose not to investigate further.

What does it mean if someone pulls my hair in my dream and I fall, too?

Dreaming about someone pulling your hair and pulling you down means you have taken too many responsibilities and you need to take a breath first.

You are under an enormous amount of stress and if you do not take a break soon, you are bound to fall hard and lose worse than what you think you will if you did not take that break.

If someone pulls your body hair and ends up pulling your skin off, it signifies that you feel like you have lost your identity.

What does it mean if I have hair extensions in my dream and someone pulls my hair?

Hair extensions are unnatural, so someone pulling those in your dream means someone close to you in your waking life has noticed the destructive behavior you have been building up and is trying to get you away from it.

You may be using alcohol to numb pain, or doing self-sabotaging actions to short yourself in fear or worse failures.
