Synthetic wigs have a lot to recommend them. They hold their style, even if they get a bit wet in the pool or ocean. The fibers don't fade in the sun or turn colors. (But they can melt if you lean over an oven. )
While all wigs tend to be somewhat hot and itchy in the summer, lightweight synthetics are available. Their open-cap construction allows the head to breathe and heat to escape, so they're cooler to wear. Standard synthetics may be worn with a mesh wig liner that's like a fishnet stocking. This type of liner also helps keep your head cool.
