The Chumrah of hair is according to Kabballah (which is probably the reason why it's more strict in Chassidishe chicks).
I don't think that's what concerns the women I know...

Halachah aside,  I find it  very very hard to believe that a girl has no issue with her hair being cut off.
Especially after 17+ years of washing  it,  ironing it,  caring for it,  and taking pride in it.

I can't make you believe something you find hard to believe, I can just tell you what my wife told me that she

see no point in keeping their hair if it can't be uncovered anyway.

You can PM me for questions like that.
I don't mean to get personal, but if you're saying there's no point in her having hair the only thing I can think that could be is if her head is actually covered 24/7?
Is that really what's expected?

It might not make sense to you, but there are woman who prefer it that way.

I've even heard of Lubavitch woman shaving their heads for comfort etc. since nobody sees it anyways.

I've already said what I have to say or better, what I want to say.

What you don't understand by now will not get explained any better with further discussing.

And if you wanna know how to clip a shaitel, sorry, wrong address, ask your local shaitel macher.

I'm out of this discussion.

I don't think Chassidish women do.  They wear it in a pony or a bun.
If you don't care why would you comment?
