In ancient China, human body was so important that no one was willing to hurt it. It was believed that every part of human body, such as hair and teeth, was bestowed on by parents. Body in ancient Chinese culture was incredibly crucial unless the situation was indeed urgent, no one would get his body injured. But here is the question: where did the hair of wigs come from? As we all know, no one will cut off his hair if everything was well. So where was it from?
Where did hair come from?
Sources become resources
There are three major sources of hair for making a human hair wig. The first one is that some women had to sell their hair for money or food due to their poverty. Without making enough money, they had no access to enough food and money and couldn’t support their families. Take the mother of Tao Kan, a great general in the Eastern Jin Dynasty, for example. Once there were poeple who came to visit her family. But at that time she was too poor to entertain them. She had to sell her hair and then got money to entertain the guests. The second way is that upper class people forced their subordinates or people to cut off their hair or the hair of their female relatives. For example, during the Spring and Autumn period, Duke Wei Zhuang, the ruler of the State of Wei, forced his subordinate Ji Shi to cut off the hair of his wife. And then with the hair, he ordered to make a human hair wig and then gave it to his own wife Lv Jiang. This way vividly shows the exploitation of power. And the last way is to use silk or animal hair to make human hair wigs. Although silk and animal hair are not as real as human hair, they are also cheap alternatives. Many people in ancient China chose wigs made of these materials.
