I had a maternity nurse who said that for the first few weeks (can't remember how long), it's a good idea to keep your hair the same as the baby looks at the shape of your face and hair, rather than your features. However, I shouldn't think this is necessary at seven months.
When my son was a baby he would cry at Thomas the tank engine. Children are just funny sometimes.

Yes! I had to wash my hair in the evenings so that my youngest son didn't see me with wet hair for a while. He would really cry. About the age of yours if I recall. It was ok a few months later and it helped by having him watch what I was doing so that he understood why I looked so different. (Big wild hair to drowned rats tails)

Have you got very distinctive hair? As someone with an awful lot of very curly hair, I remember my niece looking totally freaked out the first time she saw me with it tied up. I took it down and recognition dawning on her face. I made a game of it then, pulling it back and letting it free - she thought it was hysterical

Aw. Ds2 did that at about the same age.
First I went into his room with my wet hair in a towel turban. He cried- full on wobbly lip and everything.
I took the towel off and ran my hand through my hair- he cried some more.
Scarped it back into a pony tail (my usual hairdo)- magically stopped crying.
Funny little weirdo
