I think one problem is the two segments of hair at the front are moving too much and/or moving as one piece. They seem like separate parts of the rest of the hair. Maybe make the top of those segments move with the head and give only the bottom tips the bounce.

 I think the hair should turn around with the head.

Edited Bangs so it sticks more to the hair and it is now more clear that the hair follows the direction of the head

Still, i think it looks awful and i donīt know why :'(

Imagine what happens when someone falls or jumps down from a height. The hair stands and falls down with a delay as you land. Running like your character does creates a less extreme effect like that. You've recreated it fairly well on the back, but the front bangs should perhaps behave a bit like flapping wings. The top of the hair on the other hand probably shouldn't bounce like it does now at all.

In one frame the outline is two pixels wide on the back, it stands out too much and creates a blinking effect. As for the anti-aliasing on the top of the head, it should look better if you reduce the double pixel ones to just one as well.

I think i'm happy with this one, REALLY THANK YOU GUYS :D
I know is far from perfect but I canīt stick to just one animation, I have to move on with the rest, if the mistakes are too obvious or ruins the piece entirely and I should REALLY change it, please make me know (I donīt want to embarrass myself :( )
