Tefillin after haircut

Question: [Friday 19th Mar Cheshvan, 5781]

May one put on Tefillin after getting a haircut prior to washing his head or taking a shower?



No. Strands of cut hair can be considered an invalidating intervening substance, and is hence to be washed off the head and body prior to putting on the Tefillin. Accordingly, after a haircut one is to be especially careful to wash his head properly prior to putting on the Tefillin.
