Something Weird Has Happened To My Hair

"Hair" in the dream world is a reliable metaphor of the other stuff that comes spontaneously out of our heads, namely our thoughts and opinions. Whenever odd things having to do with "hair" show up in the dream world, it's always worth asking the question: "How do these images of hair symbolize my changing thoughts and opinions?". Are they "changing color"? Getting "longer"? "Shorter"? Am I afraid that people will think that I'm strange if I express my new thoughts and ideas? (Just the way they might react if I were to show up with my hair changed the way it is in the dream.)
