Cosplay wig help

:iconnikiptc18:

I recently bought a cosplay wig. It's 120 cm, and it gets tangled easily.
Does anyone know a good way to brush a wig (such a long one, at that) without ripping all of the hair out?
Thanks!

I have a long wig like this. Here's how to do it, the poor person way.

Fill the sink up with waer and wash the wig in it. You don't need shampoo, just condition it. Or use detangling spray.
With some conditioner/water in it still, hang it and brush it from bottom-up wih a normal hairbrush to get out normal tamgles.
Comb it with a wet comb that's laced with conditioner. DON'T LET THE WIG DRY WHEN IT'S BEING BRUSHED.
Wrap it in a towel to dry. It's fine to have some conditioner in a wig.

Whe you aren't usuing it, put ponytails at the bottom where the hair ends. If the bottoms can't move, the wig can't tangle.

I usually use a toothbrush to comb my wigs, they aren't that long though, but it works really well if you'll have the patience.

Something else that I've heard is that once you have it styled is that you should hairspray it into place. This might be common sense or sound absolutly stupid; I'm not sure. That's just what I heard but it might be worth looking into ^^'

Haha, make sure you look up if that's a good idea or not! Like I said, I'm not really sure if it is or not ^^' But I'm glad that you think it's a good idea!
