I can't remember when I watched it, but I know it was an OVA (Original Video Animation), something of an indie.

The girl had a "pet" alien that could transform into absolutely anything. I believe her hair stuck up whenever she'd command it to do something/transform into something. The characters also looked pretty normal, no candy-coloured hair from what I can remember.

It ended with a fight with the government or something like that.

I also remember that the anime was incomplete, and that it was going to have a follow-up at some point.

    Instead of editing your question to say you found it, please post an answer describing this anime Cencoroll :-) You're perfectly allowed to answer your own question. That way it will be easier for future visitors to see the question and its solution separately, and to see how Cencoroll fits your original description.

Cencoroll (2009). OP found it themselves and edited it into the question, but never returned to put it as an actual answer.

From Wikipedia:

In Cencoroll, large, mostly white amorphous creatures have been appearing in a town modeled after Sapporo, Hokkaidō, Japan. Tetsu is a male high school student who keeps one such shapeshifting creature named Cenco, which he can control via telepathy, though wants to keep it a secret. An inquisitive girl named Yuki chances upon Cenco at school when it is transformed into a bicycle. After Tetsu arrives to retrieve the bicycle, Yuki inadvertently causes Cenco to transform back into its normally large form by poking it in the eye. Yuki is much more interested in Cenco than Tetsu and accompanies them into town. There, a boy named Shū, who controls two of the creatures, confronts Tetsu in order to obtain Cenco. [...]

Yuki gets Cenco to change control of it from Tetsu to herself, and after Shū's larger creature eats Cenco along with Yuki, she manages to take control of the larger creature as well. They are subsequently attacked by the military with tanks and missiles, but are protected for the time being when Yuki changes the creature's shape to that of a massive walnut. Tetsu and Yuki are separated and Shū attempts to take control back from Yuki, but he cannot control the creature anymore and severs the link, effectively killing it. Tetsu makes it back with Cenco to where Yuki and Shū are, and Yuki knocks Shū out with Cenco transformed into a baseball bat. Afterwards, Yuki transforms Cenco into Tetsu's lost arm, which gives him back control of his limb. Shū is later shown having been rescued by his other creature.

Yuki gets a cowlick evry time she controls Cenco, like this:

Still according to Wikipedia, part 2 came out in June 2019 and a part 3 should be made at some point.
