What is the reason that hair cuts are not allowed(or advisable) on Rosh Chodesh according to Rav Yehuda Hachassid? A lot of things mentioned in the tzavvah should be avoided because of danger is this also because of danger or is it more of a reason of a yom tov?

I don't know why people are making so much noise about a Tzavaah written for his sons. Nevermind the fact that most of the stuff are most likely his own Minhagim and have nothing to do with Dina DeGemara. – Hacham Gabriel Aug 9 '13 at 17:08
you mean the Magen Avraham and the Mishna Brurah are making noise? – sam Aug 9 '13 at 17:11
Yes. All the Aharonim spent a lot of time on this. I still wonder why. – Hacham Gabriel Aug 9 '13 at 18:02
I don't think anyone has any idea what he was thinking when he wrote a lot of things. – Double AA Aug 10 '13 at 21:59
