Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Extensions of Synthetic hair and Animal hair besides pig hair is permissible.

1. Wigs should not be worn for the purpose of deception and exposing ones beauty, rather one should observe hijaab at all times.
2. Wigs made from Human hair are Haraam.
