NA teach that the hair is our connection to Spirit (like antennae) and hence the raising of one's hair (on head or the body) an indication to be alert and receptive to what's happening at the moment. It is also taught that it is our strength (Sampson and Delilah) and when shorn/cut weakens us. Many cultures believe long hair is to be worn for that reason. I used to wear mine very long (half way down my back) but as I have aged it's gotten shorter and I prefer it. I'm still very sensitive with hairs rising on me, and it's usually cautionary when that happens.
