Do you find yourself tossing and turning every night, trying to make sense of your weird dreams? If so, take them seriously — they’re more than just silly nonsense. Dreams are a great way to access the hidden parts of your subconscious, which is why they often reveal hidden fears, insecurities, and other truths about your personality that you might not be aware of during the day.
Let’s take a look at what losing hair in your dreams means for both females and males.
Hair Symbolism In Dreams
Hair is a very personal feature. It represents who we are and how we feel about ourselves. It also has a strong cultural significance, and its meaning varies widely between cultures. For some people, long hair is a sign of wisdom and strength. For others, hair is a symbol of the personal expression of their identity. In dreams, hair represents wisdom, our identity, pride, self-confidence, and physical health.
What Does It Mean To Dream About Losing Hair?
A dream about hair loss cannot be interpreted in just one way, because hair symbolizes several things and with it comes several interpretations. Below we look at the most common interpretations of this dream and what it could mean for you.
#1 Meaning – Your Identity
The first common interpretation of a dream about losing hair is fear about your identity feeling like you are losing your identity. If you see losing your hair in a dream, it could mean that you are repressing something in yourself that you are afraid to reveal to the world or your loved ones. Often times it is about your sexual orientation, the desire to change gender, or a desire to do something that others might find strange or not normal. There is something in your life that makes you feel like you are losing your identity.
This dream is especially common among women who do not feel like women because they are forced to do hard men’s jobs, or live with a partner who treats them as if they are men (or does not respect their femininity.)
#2 Meaning – A Sign of Bad Health
It is believed that can your hair can give you an idea about your overall physical health. If your hair is not healthy, it can be a sign that something is wrong with your body. Hair loss in dreams indicates some problems with your physical health.
You may think that you have no problems with your health. However, it is your subconscious that speaks to you through dreams and knows what is going on inside you. So this dream may not mean that you have any problems right now, but it may indicate that you are doing something that can lead to a deterioration in your health (e.g. junk food, alcohol, excessive caffeine intake, etc.)
#3 Meaning – Loss of Pride
Hair is very often associated with pride, and dreaming about losing hair might mean that you are losing your sense of self-worth, dignity, and respect and that you are no longer the person you once were and your value system is out of balance. You may have a feeling of shame that may have occurred due to circumstances beyond your control or due to your own actions.
If you are experiencing feelings of loss of pride, it’s important to remember that these feelings are normal and many people experience them at some point in their lives. However, if you dream about losing hair very often and are concerned about your mental health, it is important to seek help from a professional such as a therapist or doctor who can offer the support and guidance needed.
A dream about losing hair does not bring positive news. Often times it points to something very personal that we have lost or something that we are losing control over. To get the most accurate interpretation, ask yourself what your hair means to you. Are they a symbol of beauty for you? If so, then you may feel less attractive or have a fear of aging. Or are they a symbol of health for you? In this case, focus more on your health and do not underestimate any symptoms.
