Sat Nam,

I am not exactly sure what kind of answer you are looking for.
I can't really tell you to get rid of your hair just to make your life easier.
We all deal in life with something, if not hair than something else. It never ends. You either have to figure out how to tie a nice house turban that is not as flimsy as patka but not as heavy as regular Dastar and will sit on your head a little better or leave things the way they are.
No body can really help you with this. perhaps you can use a clip of some kind under the fabric while you are playing to help things stay in place. It is up to you.

good luck,
