Hi Chloe, I started out with cheap wigs – cheap price meant cheap quality. I donated all of them to a local charity thrift shop.
I moved on to two good quality wigs. One was purchased at a store for crossdressers/trans for around $200 (just over 10 years ago). The other wig, and this is something to consider, was purchased from a beauty salon. Some beauty salons use good quality wigs for training new salon staff. And sometimes they are willing to sell those wigs for very discounted prices. I got a beautiful mid-length auburn wig for $25 (this would have been over 15 years ago).
Finally, all my wigs are in storage. I haven’t had a haircut since I retired four years ago. And my hair has grown past my bra strap. It is just so wonderful having real hair and not having to worry about wigs. and of course the color match to my skin tone is perfect (albeit there is a bunch of gray in it now).
Have a wonderful rest of the week, All the Best, Hugs, Krista.
