No, many of her co-workers did.. (she was about to.. but decided no matter how cheap, at this point is a waste of money)

That doesn't bother me. Between me and you most shaitel machers get it from China. Its just a matter of finding the right seller to deal with
True, but without a hechsher it is like buying food without a hechsher because you know that the kosher company also get it from China.

The question is whether it is an item which needs a hechsher.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Wife just bought one a month ago.
She will probably return it as she is not happy with the color but if you get the color right than it can be a perfect shaitel.
if she keeps it she will need to add highlights and cut it locally.
She says it is exactly like the ones you would buy at a shaitelmacher.
Seller info?
No, many of her co-workers did.. (she was about to.. but decided no matter how cheap, at this point is a waste of money)
Seller info?

What about the reports that this hair is from mammash avoda zara?  There have even been reports that the hechshir labels are faked
Are there any rabonim who are expert in this subject?
Even if it does need a hechsher, whats to say that the Middlemachers wigs aren't straight from China with the "faked" labels.

Odds are they are from China with a fake hechsher and all..
