    All of my 80's She-Ras (minus one) were bought loose and all have hair in excellent condition. I have come across a handful with extremely bad hair, but they were an easy fix (1-3 figures).

    It's when the hair falls over the shoulders that you run into mobility problems.
    I'm glad you mentioned DC Direct figures. I own the following female figures with heads that CANNOT move, or have EXTREMELY LIMITED movement due to sculpted hair:

    - Dr. Light
    - 3 Wonder Girl figures (Teen Titans and the two different Infinite Crisis figs)
    - Multiple Catwomans with hair/maskless. The all purple one is the WORST.
    - Harbinger
    - Starfire's evil sister (Teen Titans, name escapes me)
    - Red Son Wonder Woman
    - Infinite Crisis Wonder Woman
    - Wonder Woman (the realistic looking one, almost looks like a statue)
    - Batwoman

    Two DC Direct figures that CAN move their head with sculpted hair:

    - Circe (from the new WW comic. HOWEVER her hair is the worst wind-blown hair I have ever seen. It's completely horizontal hovering above her shoulder).
    - Re-activated Wonder Woman. (Her head can move, but because of the long hair, it makes her face touch her shoulder when you turn it to the side, which is awful).

    I like both looks. I always wished, as a kid, that the pop girls looked more like the he-folks-- but that didn't stop me from playing with everyone concerned lol. If they have rooted, that's awesome, if they have moulded, that's awesome-- if they have both hair types I'll jump up and down and be ecstatic.

    Did I ever grow up? Probably not. I'm sure the day-glo socks gave it away anyway.
