sounds like she likes hiding in your hair. Just make sure when you put her back in her cage for the night that there are no human hairs wrapped around little fingers or tail.

A human hair, even short can wrap around those little fingers and the tail and cut off the circulation, which can spell an amputation surgery specially if it is wrapped around a tail or limb.

What type of shampoo do you use? Many hair products are 'fruit' scented and may leave a bit of the yummy smell in your hair even after it is dry that will tempt the gliders to try to taste or eat your hair.

You may need to choose an unscented product or cover your hair to keep the gliders out of it.

Do check to make sure there is no hair wrapped around toes or the glide's tail as Feather mentioned.

Also watch your glider and if there is any odd tongue movements or drooling - check your glider's mouth. There may be hair caught between the teeth that is irritating for your glider.

The conditioner and shampoo I use don't really have fruity scent. But I have started using this moisturizer made from coconuts.

She didn't have any strands of hair wrapped around her nor stuck in her teeth.
