Message:  Is there any heter for the common practice for the Bride not to cover her hair after heder Yichud?

    
Reply: That minhag is practiced by many. It is 100% ok."

Can you please provide a halakhic basis to this practice?

Isn't the bride afrter yichud a "nesua" and obligated according to all opinions to cover her hair?


    
Reply: She is a nesua not a beula.

I'm assuming your source for this is a diyuk in the Shulkhan arukh ( OH 75 :2) am I correct?

Can I infer that a never married girl that is a beula is required of kissuy rosh?

Or does she also have to be a nesua on top of being a beula ?

Can you please provide explicit sources for the option you feel is correct?


    
Reply: Nope, my source is the author of the Ohr Yitzchok. No, you cannot infer, brcause she has to be a nesua also.

From your reply, I understand that the requirement of kissuy rosh applies if and only if 2 conditions are met
1)Nesua
2)Beula

Can I infer from that that an almana or a gerusha do not need to cover their hair. (I suspect this is in contradiction with SA EH 21:2, taking into consideration the nose keilim there).
Please explain

Reply:  Let me change my original reply.
Nope, my source is the author of the Ohr Yitzchok. No, you cannot infer, because she has to be OR HAVE BEEN a nesua also.
