When he pulls your hair, tug his -- not hard, but enough so that he can feel it. It's not meant to be a punishment, but more of a "Hey, that's what you just did to me and it hurts. Now that you know what it feels like, stop."

Our daughter took longer to understand this concept because she has really curly hair, but our 14 month old son was trained in about a week.

Mine's doing that too. She has added hitting, poking and scratching! I wish I could help.
