I buy wigs from www.wigs.com.  I've bought Beverly Johnson and Dena Cali wigs from them, and I've been pretty pleased with the results.

I'll chime in here, but I'm not a wig wearer. However, you shouldn't worry about rain with synthetic weaves b/c it's plastic anyway. With human hair u might want to worry if it's not remy b/c the non remy hair has silicone on it to keep it from tangling. Though I can't imagine you getting rained on so hard it would wash the silicone off, with pollutants and chemicals in the rain, it could very well do that. So I would choose remy human hair wigs (pricier) or just a good synthetic one that looks real and feels real to you.
 
If you're concerned about humidity and not just about getting wet, I'd say go with synthetic if you're worried about messing up your hairstyle. With remy hair, it'll behave just like human and may frizz up on you. Synthetic won't. So it's your choice.
 
Overall, I'd go into a BSS in your area (if you can) and try on wigs to get an idea before you order. Everything looks nicer online, but the differences can only be seen once you try them on personally.

Yea, glad to help. I wear ponytails often (not a wig but kinda) and my favorite one is synthetic. In the Florida humidity it never acts up, but if it were human hair it might.

It's also important to find a brand that's comfortable. Too much pressure on your hairline could make you go bald! Make sure your scalp can breathe and that you barely notice it's on.
 
Also, post pics when you get it!Smile
