A wig is a head of hair made from horsehair, human hair, wool, feathers, buffalo hair, or synthetic materials which is worn on the head for fashion or various other aesthetic and stylistic reasons, including cultural and religious observance. Human hair wigs and synthetic wigs are the most common wigs. The industry choice, however, is yak hair, which is not only inexpensive, but close in consistency and appearance to human hair as well. The word wig is short for periwig and first appeared in the English language around 1675.
Some people wear wigs to disguise the fact that they are bald; a wig may be used as a less intrusive and less expensive alternative to therapies for restoring hair. Wigs may also be used as a cosmetic accessory, sometimes in a religious context. Actors, on the other hand often wear costume wigs in order to better portray a character.
Our factory is very strong on kosher wigs and our quality is very popular among our customers for its high quality hair and comfortable cap workmanship. Here i take a brief introduction of skin top workmanship for your reference:
The skin top is constitutive of three layers. The hair is knotted/tied on the middle layer. Then the hair is pulled out from the outer layer, which is Chinese silk. It seems the hair is growing on the scalp, and we can't see the knots from the out layer because it has covered the knots, which is tied on the middle layer. The inner layer is a kind of net to make customers feel comfortable to wear. This working procedure is the most technical producing all kinds of wigs, and it shows the most natural looking.
For the European hair, I am sorry for that we don't know the name of European hair supplier.
For the pricelists, we have both kinds of cap constructions, one is half hand tied skin top and half machine wefts, and the other is full hand tied with skin top. Pleases attached pricelists.
In some hasidic sects, sheitels are avoided as they can give the impression that the wearer's head is uncovered. In other groups women wear some type of covering over the sheitel to avoid this misconception. In stark contrast, the Lubavitcher Rebbe encouraged all married Jewish women to wear only sheitels.
In 2005 there was a degree of controversy over natural hair sheitels procured from India. It was discovered that the hair used for the production of these wigs was taken from an Indian house of worship. According to the halacha one cannot derive benefit from anything used in what Judaism considers to be idolatry. The controversy ceased when it became clear that the hair was neither worshiped nor offered as a sacrifice to the deity, but shaven as a rite of purification, thus excluding it form the category of forbidden items.
Today many wigs used by Jewish women come with kosher certification, indicating that they are not made with hair originating from rituals deemed to be idolatrous. In order to buy the lace front wigs which can perfectly fit you, you should take your measurements carefully. Before you start pin hair as flat and as tight as possible before taking the measurements. This will eliminate bulges that distort head contours.
