Sheitels don't have a " Kosher Certificate " when you see this in a wig,
This more a referring to a " Jewish wig ".
Hasidic or Orthodox Jewish women cover their hair after marriage, with a Sheitel, Tichel or other sort of headcovering, this because Orthodox women don't show their hair anymore, at least not in public.
It has several reasons,
🔹️After marriage we attain a new sort of holiness being united with the other half of our Neshama
🔹️Modesty, it doesn't mean that women who cover their hair after marriage are made to look ugly, but rather the importance to remember the woman's kindness and generosity than her appearance, with modesty is not to destract beauty, but that it would be saved for where it belongs in marriage, it also means when a woman wears a Sheitel or Tichel, a statement has been made that the woman is married and not available to other men.
🔹️Modesty is a foundational value in Jewish life, headcovering and dressing Tznius is expressing Yiddishkeit and a connection with HaShem
🔹️When a Orthodox woman become a widow or when the woman is divorced, she is still obligated to wear headcovering, according to Torah.
When you want to get married again, you can discuss with your Rabbi not to wear any form of headcovering after a divorce of being a widow.Wearing a sheitel or tichel shows you are unavailable.
lets see what " Jew in the City " Allison Josephs has to say 🔹️
On the " Hair Covering " matter. Is it a Mitzvah or is it something else? I say its a Mitzvah.
Watch this, its Beginners Essential and when you can wrap this Tichel, you could wrap so much more styles
What does modesty means, What does the Torah or Halacha say, well the Torah says we are not allowed to wear mens clothes and visa versa, Halacha says we have to dress Tznius, to cover our collarbone, elbows en knees, but doesn't say anything what we should wear, dressing Tznius doesn't mean that we have look frumpy and out of style. We are allowed to look beautiful in what we wear, we can choose are own clothes, even fashional dresses, skirts, top and shoes, as long as its not too tight, too short, Hasidic women do wear tights, all year around, no bare legs or feet, we can wear sandals but with tights 😉
Loving fashion and keeping it modest is easier than you think, and fun at the same time, I found this awesome video, the place to be when it comes to being modesthy dressed and fashionable, in the Orthodox Hasidic world is of course Crown Heights.
Just check it out for youself, its amazing 💗
Cynical Dutchess 💎 Batsheva

🔹️ Shatnez 🔹️
Shatnez is Mitzvah and against wearing wool & linnen together in the same clothes item, wearing say a jumper made of wool and a shirt made of linnen is perfectly acceptable.
The prohibition against Shatnez can be found in Devarim 22 : 11 and Vayikra 19:19.
A combination of other materials doesn't create Shatnez
The Halachos for men regarding Tznius
The Jewish concept of Tznius applies just as much to men as to women. The misconception about Tznius is that it is not just about clothing and honor for women; there is more to it than that, as it is also about how we act, how we talk, and how we treat others. Tznius is also an act of dignity.
Clothing for men should not be provocative or demeaning and should not be too tight. Men should wear pants and not shorts (except when playing shorts), and the pants should not be very tight. They should also cover their upper bodies, even while swimming.
