Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved 'feelers' or 'antennae' that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brainstem, the limbic system, and the neocortex.
Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then rephotographed after the hair is cut.
When hair is cut, receiving and sending transmissions to and from the environment are greatly hampered. This results in numbing-out . Cutting of hair is a contributing factor to unawareness of environmental distress in local ecosystems. It is also a contributing factor to insensitivity in relationships of all kinds. It contributes to sexual frustration.

in response to those who feel that spiritual individuals cutting their hair contradicts the hypothesis in the OP:
If i am to understand the OP correctly, long hair acts as an extension of the nervous system, and therefor connects the individual more vividly to the sensations of the external world.
many monks and spiritual seekers do not wish to be connected more vividly to the external world and instead seek to turn their awareness to the internal world. they cut themselves off from the external world of sensation by fasting, celibacy, meek lifestyles, vows of silence, and other ascetic practices.
if long hair increases ones sensitivities to the external world and its cavalcade of sensations, it would make sense they would wish to cut it off... to ease the distractions.
additionally, if long hair increases sexual sensation (as the OP proposed), that would be a thing most monks would assuredly wish to eliminate. no sense in teasing the temptations, eh.
my two cents.

You had my interest until the Holy Roller reference at the end. How is it some people always seem to find a way to say "See... the bible tells us so." I'm not trying to judge you, I respect your beliefs. But seriously... what credible evidence is there to any of it? Faith, eh!?
Uhhhhhh.......you dont consider the bible to have encoded information?
The evidence is that ancient cultures used to consider hair to have some higher significance then we presume. Their evidence was presumably based on observable occourances.
Uhhhh. No I don't. The bible is encoded now!? What? A release of information from the vatican , selected by men of the cloth out of thousands of unreleased books. No I don't buy into it. The bible is more of a historical Wikileaks that never released all of the files. History is written by the winners. The church hasn't lost many wars in history that I know of. I'm not saying I didn't find the OP interesting but, evidense. No not likely. I did give a star for the OP though.
