Are Jewish Hair Wigs Better Than Regular Wigs?

Many consider a "Jewish hair wig" to be superior to other types of wigs, but we must look into the reason Jewish women are wearing wigs. Primarily married women of the Jewish faith wear kosher wigs to cover their own hair, this practice is done to distract from the appeal of their natural hair. It has been widely known that these wigs have excellent (strong) cap construction, and are made of high-density human hair.

But a high-density human wig may not work well for one with hair loss due to medical reasons such as chemotherapy hair loss, alopecia, and trichotillomania. Keeping in mind that women wearing kosher wigs have their own hair, they are designed for full coverage and tend to be heavier than other types of wigs.

I recommend a Jewish wig for those with some hair loss, but the comfort of an Alopecian cap tends to work better for those with complete hair loss. The Alopecian cap construction offers tabs to easily secure the hairline, sides, and center of the head, it is silky inside and stretches to mold to your head.

Some wigs over venting, and silk mesh to allow for breathability, especially for those who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy. Some forms of Alopecia, such as Lichen Planopilaris can create a very sensitive scalp, therefore, a comfortable elasticized wig may be a better solution.

The takeaway is that Jewish wigs are not always the best for all types of hair loss, albeit they are well made, aka Kippah wigs.

It is important to try on all types of wigs, even synthetic types since they are lightweight, and maybe a better option for sensitive heads.  

In some cases, a hair topper is a better way to cover hair loss at the top of the head whereas a full-on wig is not a necessity. Hair toppers can be clipped on, or attached with our beaded matrix; no glue, tape, or sewing.  

Every case of hair loss differs, therefore, it is important to seek professional advice via a consultation. Our consultations are free of charge, we will evaluate your type of hair loss, scalp condition, head size, and aesthetic style.  

We suggest that you search online for a style and color you like, as well as pictures of your hair prior to experiencing hair loss. Many of our clients receive insurance compensation for their "scalp prosthesis," and we are more than happy to provide the appropriate documentation to submit to them.

Compassionate care, along with expert service is our goal in working with every client. You mean the world to us.
