Corrí mis dedos por mi pelo. (')

Hi Nathaniel
I think a better translation would be "me pasé los dedos por el pelo".

This is what I found on this website's entry for "run:"

to run one's fingers over something -> pasar la mano por algo, acariciar algo (español de España)

he ran his fingers through his hair -> se pasó los dedos entre los cabellos

Literally, to pass one's fingers among the hairs.

In sayings like that, you often can find what you're looking for by searching each word in the phrase. For example, the answer wouldn't be under hair, or fingers, or through, but it is in run. I often find what I'm looking for if I search long enough, though.

Hope this helps! =)
