If you wear a wig, you may be wondering why you are offered kosher wigs when you are shopping.  What you may not know is that many Orthodox Jewish women are required to cover their hair for modesty, and they may choose to do this with a wig.  For religious reasons, the wig must come with a kosher certification, to prove that a process the religion deems idolatrous did not make the hair that is used.  This is similar to the requirement to eat kosher food for people of the Jewish nationality and faith.

One of the major benefits of living in America is that there are so many different religions.  Religious beliefs come from all different places and cover many different ideas.  People have the right to worship as they see fit, and to follow their religions in any way they can.  This is a big part of the reason that kosher wigs are available to women. While the common person may not understand these reasons, they are very personal and important to the wearer of the wig.  Part of the beauty of living in this country is the ability of all to worship in the way they are required by their religion, and fashion is no different.  While many people may wear a wig out of necessity or for fashionable reasons, these wigs are offered as a token of modesty to the wearer, and are necessary to live in line with what they believe is true.
