Who was ever ???? sheitels to begin with? The reason a woman covers her hair when she gets married is to show a distinction between a married woman and an unmarried woman (Maseches Kesuvos). Nowadays, Sheitles are so well made that its impossible to tell if it’s her real hair or not. Great, so now how come most of our wives wear Sheitels? Again this is one of the things that since everyone does, makes us feel like its OK. But that is wrong and if you learn threw the Sugya, you will see that there is really no Heter!
The Reshonim say a lot of scary things about a woman who goes out in public wearing a Sheitel. Now really think about it, life on earth is not forever but the world to come is! So is it worth lossing out on a life that’s forever because of a silly wig that your wife wears!
And again, just because everyone does it, that does not make it right. I suggest anyone who still has a doubt to learn threw the Sugya with all the Reshonim and Achronim and then you will understand where I am coming from. This is a huge Nisayon. Let’s not fail it!
If CT is more expensive, is for a reson. You get what you pay for!
