The point was that "hair" (KOMH) was "given" (DEDOTAI) her "for a covering"
(ANTI PERIBOLAIOU). This no more necessarily precludes styling or brushing
the hair than women having been given ears for hearing necessarily precludes
them from wearing an earring! It's not entirely clear to me why, if my point
is valid, that would be a necessary (or even logical) inference to draw.

As always, glad to hear from you.
