This sounds like what is called a Fetish, which is when someone becomes sexually obsessed with a PART of a person rather than with the whole person. Some folks have a fetish for shoes, or feet, or other objects. Its less than a full human relationship. As just part of an otherwise loving relationship its usually fine, but the more exclusive it becomes, the more it damages the prospects for a long-lasting and mutually enjoyable relationship between two entire people. For him to have become so possessive and controlling about your hair, suggests his primary relationship may be with your hair, more than with you yourself. Relationship counselling might help, if he were willing to take part in it sincerely.
