Luna does this to me too. According to my research, some cats like to groom their owners' hair, since hair is the closest thing to their fur.

I couldn't get the video to come up either, but based on what Luna said, my Zipper will chew on my hair in bed. I won't let her do it long because it HURTS!!! She will also chew on paperback book covers and VERY expensive college textbooks. sheesh

I couldn't get the video to load, but judging by the still image, I would interpret this behaviour as "Kitty loves you and wants to play!"

It might be your shampoo. I briefly used lavender shampoo but had to stop because my cats would try to eat my hair.

Looks to me like he's just playing, but she more the licks and pulls on your hair that she's getting more stimulated and plays harder....could be something in your shampoo is "catnip-like". Looks like she has her claws out too, so it's more play than just being loved on.
