My thought the same, but I've exchanged comments with other witches and they say they never, ever cut their hair, only a tiny trim every now and then. I don't believe it hinders your abilities but I wanted to get your input in the matter. Thank you.

My great grandmother was full blooded Cherokee (Twisted/Long Hair tribe) and believed her hair was her strength. Her hair was down to her ankles and she would pin it up in a bun. But strength does not mean magick power, she was referring to willpower. I believe it is what you believe it is. When she became ill in old age, she asked that it be cut short, which signified she was giving up and was accepting death. It's more of a sacred belief, not anything to do with power. If you believe it strengthens you, then it does, just as a good luck charm only works if you give that object that importance. But the only thing that helps spellcasting is knowledge and practice. No object in the world, attached or separate from your body will do that for you.
