Using a wig made with human hair

Q: I have purchased a hair patch (wig) which is made of human hair. Can I attach the wig which is made of human hair? I am 31 years old and married. My intention is not to deceive anyone. My only purpose is to look good. Kindly guide me in this regard.

A: It is impermissible to use human hair.

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