I love protective hair styles, but most require an extensive amount of time to put in and do not allow access the hair once it is finished. Wigs provide protection and allow access, so they are a win-win for me. I have worn wigs off and on for a couple of years now. I only purchase synthetic wigs, because my style changes so much, it wouldn't justify the purchase of human wigs. Synthetic wigs are beautiful and can be manipulated to look like natural, human hair. Even though I love synthetic wigs, they tend to tangle from rubbing my shoulders and clothing after a week. My solution is to purchase shorter wigs, thus eliminating the tangling.
