human hair sheitelin

Someone recently made a very harsh statement to me regarding human hair sheitelin, which I will not write here, but basically the gist of it was that the reason why we are plagued with a certain disease requiring the use of wigs even when unmarried, is because people wear human hair sheitelin which is (supposedly) osur. I was asked to find mekoros for how human hair sheitelen are mutar and basically to disprove this ugly statement. If anyone could please tell me about this I would appreciate it.

I know that there are legitimate opinions that it is ossur but I am saying that the blanket statement that wearing human sheitelin is the reason for cancer, is an ugly statement.

here's the thread:

http://www.chabadtalk.com/forum/show...hlight=sheitel

back in the sixties and earlier, human hair sheitels were the only thing available, synthetics sheitels being something of the future. The Rebbe encouraged the buying of beautiful human hair sheitels, even contributing money towards buying them.
