Choosing your first Sheital
A sheitel is a special type of wig worn by Jewish orthodox married women. These wigs cover the hair as required by their religion. If you are looking for your first sheitel then there are a number of different things that you will need to consider. Choosing the right type will make sure that it can be worn for many years.
You should invest in a high quality sheital which will last for a long time. These can be washed many times and worn for years without replacement. Choose better quality sheitals which are made from natural hair. These are much higher quality and should last for many years.
A few years ago there was a lot of controversy over the source of some of the hair used to make sheitels. This was sourced from an Indian place of worship which went against the Jewish religious beliefs. Now many shietels come with kosher certification. It’s a good idea to choose a wig which is kosher as you can be certain of the hair it’s made from.
There are many different brands of shietel that you might want to consider buying. There’s no right or wrong answer most of the time which on you choose. You will need to choose a shietel that you are happy with.
The place where you buy your shietal from should be able to help style and fit it for you. This will make it suit your face much better.
