Also as he's walking away he sort of starts out fine and then doubles over some in pain, indicating he's in pain from the bullets he took from the other guys or some other reason???
Others have touched on the hair part and the hulk issue, as for what I bolded. In one of the children's novels that came out that has the first bit of Avengers in it (and I know, those aren't necessarily canon, but I really liked the description) I think it describes Loki's arrival as him kind of literally having to claw his way through the portal (when I get home from work I'll see if I can find it and quote it), which lets me think that - given it isn't a stable portal (since it collapses), the journey through it might not have been that pleasant. Also, there's this bit from Hiddleston (that I know I've linked to before) where he discusses what he and Joss talked about in regards to what Loki's been through between the end of Thor and the beginning of Avengers:

The Seventh Circle of Hell: An Interview with Tom Hiddleston

There was a gap between Thor and The Avengers, and we see at the beginning of The Avengers that some… “stuff” has happened.


And we still haven’t really gotten into it in detail. We get a hint at the end of the film. Did Joss [Whedon] fill you in on that? Was that vital to your character?

Yeah, we talked about it a lot. We talked about this idea that Loki disappears through that wormhole of space and time, when the Bifrost is destroyed, and he kind of goes through the Seventh Circle of Hell. And he’s on his own. He’s on his own in the dark corners of the universe, and the journey he goes on is pretty horrible. It’s like getting lost in the rainforest or something. You’re going to come out the other side a bit mangled on the outside, and on the inside.
So, for me personally, I think him doubling over in pain as he walks out is just him loosing that 'adrenaline rush' that fueled his initial attack and kind of, just for a moment, gives into the hell that he's been through before arriving on earth/lets himself feel that pain. If that makes sense.

Hill: Then aliens invaded New York & were beaten back, by among others, a giant green monster, a costumed hero from the 40's...and a god.
Ward: I don't think Thor is technically a god.
Hill: haven't been near his arms.
