I dreamed I had long hair

Other women have hair dreams, not me. I've read of women who dreamed they were straightening their hair, going bald, like that. These kinds of hair dreams seem to help the dreamer release or expose a fear she may not be able to feel when awake. My dream, the first hair dream I've ever had, wasn't about fear and it was very short.

I was looking in the mirror in the bathroom. My hair was down, looked like I had taken it down from a bun and fluffed it out. It was white and fluffy, bushy and frizzy, and somewhat straight from the bun rather than curly like a wash and go. And it fell right to the middle of my arm between shoulder and elbow. In the dream I am surprised to see myself like this, and pleased.

This dream may be about more than hair, I think. This dream is a vehicle my subconscious used to bring me a sense of abundance, to reach within me and draw forth my richness and connection to wealth. Yup. Long hair is all that, at least in my dream.


  1. I know someone that had a dream about this super awesome guy named Paul and she actually met him in real life! She recognized him and everything. They hit it off great but he has a girlfriend but its starting to break off she says.

  2. My daughter has a hair type EXACTLY like yours, and I am @ a loss for what to try in her hair. We live in a very cold climate so I am opposed to wetting her hair daily, but NO matter what I do her hair comes out looking like an oversized cotton ball. When wet it is eerily similar to youur hair type but swells into frizz. HELP!! BTW you have a beautiful mind and beautiful hair! Thanks Sis!

    Cold climate is usually dry and that's the challenge. I think I'll write a post on this topic. In a nutshell, your daughter's hair gets puffy and frizzy for 2 possible reasons: 1) the hair itself doesn't contain enough moisture so when it draws atmospheric moisture it swells; 2)Using the wrong styling products or not enough product.

    To correct #1, co-wash and condition your daughter's hair frequently, at least 2 times a week, and use deep conditioners every other week. In the cold weather, shea butter is very effective on my hair. I rub some in my palms and scrunch it right over my wet hair that has conditioner or a leave in conditioner. I also use a soft gel to hold my texture and help keep the moisture in. And by moisture I don't mean keep the hair wet, just hydrated when it's dry.
