Sheitel
Last week I got a sheitel! I love it. I don't have time to write more. I know, I suck!

FYI, if you don't know what a sheitel is, it's a wig, which I'm using to cover my hair in lieu of a hat or a snood. It's way cool and I love it and I've received many, many compliments on it. :)

Public Hair Service Annoucement

You need to edit your LJ picture, since it's showing your real hair! Do you know how many men you are tempting with that picture?

If you like, I'll make the adjustments to your picture myself and email you the results ;-)

Re: Public Hair Service Annoucement

I am SO not going to dignify that with a real response.

I'm curious about something.

You're supposed to wear a wig to cover your hair -- but at least some wigs are made out of hair. Does that mean a real-hair wig is ok so long as it's someone else's hair, and that you are not allowed to cut your hair short and use your own hair to make the wig?

Just curious. Not trying to be irreverent -- I really want to know.

I didn't mean to ignore your question. I just haven't been updating often and we've had sketchy internet at home recently.

My sheitel is made from real (European) hair. So, yes, it is okay to cover your hair with a real-hair wig. The halacha is to cover YOUR OWN hair after you are married.

I don't believe that you can use your own hair to make a sheitel, but I'm actually not positive. It's impractical anyway. It takes an awful lot of hair to make a sheitel. When I got this one, I donated my hair to Locks of Love. It would take approximately 10 to 15 of those foot-long pony-tails to make a hairpiece.

That's great...I'm so glad it looks good on you!

Thanks! I really love it. I'm *still* getting compliments on it. I thought I'd feel very weird about it, but I love, love, love it. :)
