So you just came home from a convention. Probably you ran a lot , or had a shoot with lots of hair flipping and tossing action, or you hugged your friends and such. Those can really put stress on your wig and as a bonus get it tangled like there is no tomorrow. And we all know that wigs are our BIGGEST investments when it comes to cosplay. So as cosplayers we need to be able to take care of them and this includes the daunting task of DE-TANGLING *dun dun dun *
Being cosplayers in the Philippines we don't have much access to the proper tools and what more, if they are available, they don't come in cheap.
So how can one, such as us, be able to take care and maintain our wigs in a cost effective way?
Well I am here to share with you how I detangle my wigs.
- Wide tooth comb
- Flat Iron
- Fabric Conditioner
- Wig stand or Hanger
- Patience, lots and lots of it.
So first take out the wig or wigs you wish to detangle. In my case I had 3 long ones. A white straight one (Grand Young). My Pale blonde Lucaille wig that is slightly wavy and then my sister's curly pink Grand Young wig ( traded my Zorro "time skip" wig for this tangled long pink one).
