Hair extentions

Q: Is it permissible for a woman to put extentions on her hair?

A: Wearing a wig or hair extension is permissible provided the hair is synthetic (it is not made from human hair). As far as human hair is concerned, then it is not permissible for one to use wigs or extensions made from human hair. 

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
