    You'll have to modify the hair so that it fits under the hood or hat, or hide the parts which poke through. 
    You can try using whatever adjustment morphs are provided with the hair, using dFormer (or mesh grabber if you have it) to pull it under the hood, geometry editor to remove or hide some polygons...

    This product also provides tools to help: https://www.daz3d.com/sy-hat-and-hair-helper-genesis-8

    Did you check the PDF manual included?

    What hair is it?

    If it is dForce you could use some helper object to get it inside the hood.

    And if not dForce, you should be able to use mesh grabber. I don't know if mesh grabber works on strand based hair. Have never tried it.

    This https://www.daz3d.com/rera-and-rera-hair-for-genesis-8-females

    That is transmapped hair, so if you have mesh grabber you can use that.

    You could probably also use a d-former, but I have only used them limited, so I can't give a good advice there.

    But you should also be able to use the Hat helper linked by Leana. I looked in the manual. You have to apply the helper first, and then with the helper selected you load the hair. And then there will be a number of morphs on the helper that will adjust the hair.

    Thank you very much and yes that's what I did but nothing happend it means I did something wrong.

    I put the model , then put the Hair helper on my model , then I put the hair , then I tryed to change it with the Hair helper but nothing change

    It is not clear.

    Had you the helper selected when you loaded the hair, i.e. the hair is fitted to the helper?

    Making a natural fit, easy or not, depend on the morphs along with the products you use and a couple of proper tools. For most of the cases, I just dial in the morphs of the hat/hood/hair and use Mesh Grabber to make them well match from one another.

    Sickleyield's hair helper is a good product but it cannot handle all the cases. Especially some of its morphs will drag the hair into the head and it will looks worse. Just because the hair fits on the helper, the collision in between the hair and the figure's head will be a problem. You have to do lots of tweaks. You may well judge the products then decide what tool you're gonna use. For dForce hair, you may also take a look at https://www.daz3d.com/dforce-hair-helper-and-knitted-hat

    For this Rera Hair, a non-dforce one, I just roughly dialed some morphs of the hair and hood, gave them a couple of drags by using Mesh Grabber. (sometimes you need to grab and drag both of them) The hair could be well 'wrapped' into the hood. If some fine and messy hair are not easy to be selected, you may use Geometry editor to select them, even hide them. 

    Beside, Mesh Grabber can save the 'dragged result' as a morph, you may reuse the morphs to fit the hair to other hats/hoods by dialing different percentage. That'll save some time~

    I THOUGHT you meant hat. GAT is old slang for "pistol." :-)
