Most people get shocked when they realize that they are going bald. Our hair is part of us and has always been from the moment we were born. Therefore, when we lose it, we feel as if part of us has also getting lost.
To keep their hair dense, healthy, and lustrous, most people go for specialized hair treatments spending fortunes on oils and serums.
Since every dream has a meaning and as such should never be ignored, it is important that you carefully analyze what your hair loss dream could be telling you.
Actual hair loss crisis
If you are going through an actual crisis and fear losing your hair, your fears could be buried deep within causing you to dream about it. This is much more the case when you are trying hard to counter the hair loss progression.
It is never good news for you to lose your hair and this may bring in feelings of depression and mental anguish. As a way out of such thoughts and fears, you need to make peace with your conscious mind and the circumstances.
Remember losing your hair is not a phenomenon that is strange to man. It does happen to more people than you can imagine. Do not tie or objectify your happiness by linking it to things such as hair. Boldly embrace the idea that at some point you may go bald, and this will clear up your emotions.
Insecurity and vulnerability
Our sense of confidence can be reflected in various scenarios including a dream about going bald. Conscious of your self-worth, you may be increasingly concerned about how attractive you are and how other people’s perceptions of you.
When you dream about going bald, chances are that you are concerned about your vulnerability and insecurity about certain areas of your life. For instance, if you are going through financial distress, you could be worries that other people are aware of your situation and this may make you feel embarrassed.
Confronting your circumstances and emboldening your personality are some of the ways you can build your confidence again. Every effort you make towards re-imagining yourself goes along way in boosting your confidence levels and reaffirming your self-worth. With time, dreams about you going bald will disappear.
Helplessness and out of control
Life happens and you may get into a situation where you feel helpless and unable to take charge. The circumstance may be unacceptable and shocking to you, but you lack the power to redirect of control it.
When you are in the thick of such things and you dream about going bald, it could be your subconscious reflecting your fears. However, the good news is that you still can gather your courage and accept the circumstances you cannot change or influence otherwise.
As the great American Theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr, once said, “Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Fear of aging
The fear of aging combines with the death can cause you to have strange dreams including dreaming about going bald. Loss of hair is commonly related to advancement in age, illness and to the extreme, death.
If you have health issues or you are concerned that at some point you may suffer chronic health issues, you may dream about going bald. While aging is not necessarily a bad thing, it is the thought of the things that come with it that make it look terribly.
For instance, aging means that you may have to forgo certain activities you love, certain foods you enjoy or have to get assistance in doing even the most basic things. When compounded, these fears and concerns can make you dream about going bald.
At times, dreams about you going bald may come in different ways or take different forms. Here are a few variants that you need to watch out for.
Dreams of you pulling out your hair
Going bald is stressful in and of itself. However, when you dream that you are going bald through you pulling out your own hair, it could even be more disturbing. Such dreams reflect what you may be going through on a day-to-day basis.
You could be having stress and worries that eat you up every single day. Dreaming that you are pulling out your hair should get you more than worries and serve as a warning sign that you need to relax. Take time to meditate and slow down a little bit as you reflect on your life.
Crying while going bald
As pointed out earlier in the article, going bald is emotional. So, you may dream about going bald and crying at the same time. When this happens, be warned. It could be a sign that you are surrounded by enemies that may try to harm or hurt you in future.
The hurt could be meted out on you as a person or your business interests. Therefore, you need to be careful of the people you associate with and what you disclose to them. Not all of them may be having the best of intentions about you.
Other people going bald
If the dream about going bald concerns someone else, it is important to take note of the person in question. If the person going bald in your dream is someone well known to you, there is a possibility that they are going through a rough time.
The other likelihood is that the other person could be you not living the life you ought to. You may be dissatisfied with your current lifestyle and goings on to the extent that you feel the life you are living is not yours any longer.
Dreaming about going bald is never a good experience. Mostly, it points you towards feelings of helplessness, lack of control, and dissatisfaction with your life. It is important that you don’t wish away such dreams but instead analyze them for a deep-seated meaning.
