What Is A Kosher Wig?

To comply with appropriateness in Jewish law, married Orthodox Jewish women do not show their hair in public. To abide by this tradition, a wig, known as a sheitel is worn. Kosher wigs are wigs used by Jewish women come with a kosher certification, meaning that they are not made with hair that originates from rituals deemed to be sacrilegious.  Wearing wigs has been a practice for many years in the Jewish community to cover up women’s hair after marriage.  Kosher Wig shops became popular decades ago and have been made more accessible to the public. They make it easy for anyone to wear wigs and find the best wigs quickly and easily that come in many different styles that Wig World sells.

What Makes a Wig Kosher?

As long as wigs are made in a way deemed to be in compliance with Jewish law it is Kosher. Wig shops sell two types of wigs, synthetic and human hair wigs. Kosher wigs fall under the same purity laws as any other wig or hairpiece. Both kinds are sold, but a natural-haired wig isn’t natural. There is a huge line to choose from. A kosher wig is defined by whether it’s made with artificial fiber like nylon or silk, which don’t absorb ritual impurities, like animal hair such as wool, fur, or feathers which do absorb ritual impurities.
