Do you ever dream about hair in food? My friend keeps finding hair in her food so often that she started dreaming of it! I gotta admit, I find the whole situation kinda funny, but I also want to know if her dreams have a deeper meaning.
If I had to choose one thing that grosses me out the most, it would definitely be finding hairs in my food. When that happens, I immediately lose my appetite and can’t think of food for the next several hours.
There are far worse things than hair to be found in the food, but still, being grossed out by the hair seems to be universal for people all around the world. Hair is full of various bacteria and dirt, and I don’t even want to imagine that feeling of trying to swallow the food full of hair.
Since so many people can’t stand having hair in their food, it makes no wonder that many of us dream about it. Let’s see the symbolism behind these dreams!
What Does It Mean To Dream About Hair In Food?
There are several dream interpretations for hair in the food, the most obvious being one that says someone or something is spoiling your happiness. It is preventing you from being fully satisfied with your life, and you can’t force yourself to ignore it.
Another interpretation claims that dreaming about finding hair in your food means a surprise is waiting for you. It could be both a bad and good surprise.
Hair in food can also symbolize that someone is going to suddenly change their behavior toward you, from good to bad, and this will greatly impact your relationship.
Also, if you dream about finding hair in your food might symbolize that you are scared of intimacy in your waking life. You don’t want anyone to come too close, as you feel your privacy is intruded on and your inner piece is spoiled.
Soon, you will be confronted with something you have avoided for a long time and you will need to stand up for yourself. You have been in the background for too long, and it is time for you to shine.
If there are lice or even worms in the hair, it is a symbol of the deep disgust you feel for something or someone. It is also a symbol of destruction, blight, suffering, and death.
The Color And The Appearance Of The Hair
As you can see, there are many different meanings behind dreams of hair in the food, and they mostly depend on the particular hairstyles:
1. Black Hair
This is a bad sign as it represents depression, weakness, confusion, sickness, poverty, and many other negative emotions and unfortunate events in your life. It might be a symbol of a humiliating moment from your past that you still think of.
Dreaming about finding black hair in your food can also symbolize the hard decisions you will have to make. You might be up for a promotion at your work.
2. Blonde Hair
Blonde hair represents carelessness and vanity. Dreaming about blonde hair in your food might symbolize that you can’t allow superficial things to get in the way of your success. On the other hand, blonde hair in your food can symbolize some good things, such as finding new love or being pleasantly surprised by someone.
3. White Hair
This dream symbolizes your desire to find a perfect person and start a relationship with them. Another meaning could be that you feel alone and isolated even though you are surrounded by many people, including numerous friends and relatives.
You are starting to recognize your full potential and you plan to use it. However, you might experience some frustration and obstacles along the way to success.
4. Red Hair
Red hair symbolizes passion, sensuality, love, power, and energy, but it can also symbolize danger and aggression. If you dream about finding red hairs in food, the symbolism remains the same.
You are extremely passionate when it comes to your dreams. Your diligence will get you far and you will achieve a high rank in any career you choose, but you need to be careful to avoid the hunger for power overpowering you.
5. Gray Hair
Finding gray hairs in your food has several meanings. It represents dignity, honor, wisdom, longevity, and old age. This dream symbolizes your coming of age.
You are maturing fast with each day, but there is still a long journey ahead of you and you need to learn a lot. You desire security and stability in your life.
6. Short Hair
The length and the type of haircut also play a role in determining the meaning of the dream. With that in mind, if you dreamed about finding short hair in your food, there are some urgent matters you need to deal with.
Another interpretation suggests some minor inconveniences, such as unexpected expenses or some unwelcome guests.
7. Long Hair
On the other hand, if the hair on your food plate is really long, it means that you will leave your home for a long period of time. You might also borrow some money, but your good luck will turn to misfortune, and your life will be filled with difficulties.
8. Curly Hair
Curly hair in your food symbolizes long journeys that might not always be too successful. Frequently you will feel like you are spinning in circles and moving too slowly.
You need to stop overthinking and overcomplicating everything. Set clear goals and how to achieve them. That way, you will overcome unnecessary complications.
9. Straight Hair
Finding straight hair in your food represents clarity and a desire to live a less complicated life. You are currently living a hectic and stressful life which causes you a lot of unhappiness.
The only way for you to be happy is to find out what makes you truly happy and start doing that instead of trying to please someone else’s expectations.
10. Tangled hair
If you dream of a bunch of hair in your food that’s full of knots and tangles, you may be feeling like your life is a mess. You are confused and have no clear vision of what to do with your life.
You need to organize yourself better, find a new perspective, and simplify the way you do things and communicate with people around you. Start with solving the biggest issues first, and then move to smaller ones.
The Origin Of The Hair
If you dream about finding the hairs from eyelashes or eyebrows in your food, that means good fortune follows you and your wishes will be fulfilled.
If the hairs in your food come from the beard or other facial hair, this symbolizes your desire to show your true face. You feel like you are hiding behind a mask that’s starting to suffocate you and it affects your quality of life.
When the hair in your food comes from other parts of the body, it symbolizes that someone is wishing you harm, and will try to hurt you. Be careful of people who suddenly start to show interest in being close to you.
If the hair in the food is your own hair, you are on the road to getting to know yourself better. You are finding out things about yourself that might surprise you.
However, if it is someone else’s hair, deep inside you feel violated and not respected enough. Someone is poking their nose in your business and you don’t appreciate it.
What You Do With Hair
What you do with the hair you find in the dream also matters when interpreting the dream meaning.
1. Swallow The Hair
If you swallow the hair while eating your food, it symbolizes your feeling of being betrayed by someone you trusted. Something in your life didn’t go as you planned and you have to face unexpected circumstances.
There is something in your past that you still can’t “swallow”, and this is a warning sign that you need to learn to let go of. Otherwise, you will be always bothered by your past and won’t be able to fully enjoy the present.
2. Take Out The Hair And Eat
Nothing can surprise you and you seem to be ready for whatever life throws at you. You are in full control of your life and can’t be easily bothered. Even when something bothers you, you quickly find a way to either eliminate whatever it is or learn how to accept it.
3. Throw Away The Food
You are a perfectionist who never settles for the second best. Even the smallest mistake or imperfection will force you to start over. However, you might be prone to easily giving up in unfavorable situations.
In real life, finding hair in your food is a disgusting experience, and it is certainly not pleasant when it happens in your dream either. However, such dreams can tell you a lot about your subconsciousness and shine some light on the future events in your life.
The most common interpretation is that someone or something is ruining your happiness, or that you feel like someone is intruding on your private life. A surprise might be awaiting you, but it can also symbolize your fear of intimacy.
No matter what’s the meaning behind such dreams, I sure hope I won’t have them any time soon. How about you, have you ever dreamed about finding hair in your food? Share your story in the comments!
