I think it symbolizes growth. In anime the idea is that your weapon is an extension of yourself, that strength is internal and spiritual.

I can't say for Japanese mythology, but there's Samson, whose strength was derived from his long (never cut) hair. Delilah, via proxy (she didn't directly cut it) cut it off, she was able to capture him and they gouged his eyes out.
