The wig is very soft and didn't tangle at all. The "shine" is very natural... similar to hair products designed to add shine to your hair. The wig is not fake looking. Inside, the wig has two adjustment straps to tighten the fit and a comb in front and back to secure it to your hair. Adding a hair cap makes it even more stable. I love it! It was certainly worth the price and then some. Adding hat makes it even more realistic.
