Cloudy cosplay -  How to make your wigs last for years!

Wigs are crucial when it comes to cosplay, but they need to be taken care of properly. Allow me to help you keep your wigs looking fresh.

 

  • Short wigs – 

Short wigs don’t get tangled, so store them folded in half, in a box. If you leave wigs in the bo for a while, it might start to crease. Every month, store wigs inside out, folded in half in the same way, this will get rid of any creasing.

 

  • Long wigs – 

Long wigs require to be stored on a foam head. To help prevent frizz, braid the wig, wrap the braid around the neck of the foam head and store. If you leave your wig in a braid for too long, it could get a bit wavy. If your wig becomes wavy, brush it with a wig comb and use light heat to straighten it. A wig comb is also needed to detangle wigs. Detangle like you would with real hair, staring from the bottom and going upwards, but be gentle because you don’t want to rip out any hair.
