    Very interesting post Hadassah.

    For me, covering my hair felt extremely uncomfortable and stifling. Not just physically but psychologically as well.

    I wore a sheitel, which was hideously uncomfortable, for the first week of my marriage. Thinking it was just the sheitel, I tried scarves and hats after that but it just wasn’t ME and I just could not do it. I’m thankful that I married a man who felt the decision was purely my own so he had no issue when I stopped covering my hair altogether.

    I’ve heard many angles on why Jewish women should cover their hair. I’ve heard the biblical sources, the chassidish / kaballistic reasons, the horror stories about women who didn’t cover, the wonderful stories about how women were rewarded for covering, but I have never had a regret or second thought about my decision.
