Picture of Untangle and De-frizz a Long Wig

I'm going to show you how to detangle and de frizz a long wig. *WARNING: ONLY DO THIS IF YOU KNOW YOUR WIG IS HEAT RESISTANT, OR ELSE IT WILL MELT! this also might damage your wig a little bit, but if you are reading this tutorial, your wig is probably already damaged lmao.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

-flat iron
-spray bottle
-wig conditioner (can usually get this at beauty stores)
-water
-towel
-wig brush

Step 2: Make the Spray

Mix a little bit of the conditioner and water into the spray bottle. I'd say about a quarter sized amount of conditioner and the rest water.

Step 3: Other Steps .3.

Picture of Other Steps .3.

First spray the bottom of the wig and brush it with the wig brush. Then spray the bottom again and flat iron it. It should make a sizzling noise. If your wig is really messy, seperate into different sections. Then move up the wig and repeat. My wig is really messy at the top so I won't even try and brush it out.

Step 4: Braid It! (optional)

You don't have to braid it, I just did because it does help it not get thangled. But it does get wavy when u take it out so you'd have to flat iron it again. If u don't braid it, i'd recommend that you keep it in the wig net and bag it came in. ** make sure that the wig is completely dry before you store it in a bag kr else it might get moldy or smell bad.

I had purple wig that I didnt use so I decided to use it for a Toko Fukawa cosplay! It was really messy and knotty so I just used this tutorial! Worked perfectly, I just cut the bangs a little and braided the hair into two. Thank you!

(I forgot to take a before shot so all I have is the after one orz )
Thanks for the tutorial ! My wig became frizzy at the ends after constant brushing and dying , you really saved me ! I also think this method brought back the original arda wig ... texture or feel (? ); it 's not as dry and well , frizzy anymore ~

This is just a little something I did to save me time , and I don 't know if you (or anyone else looking ) wanna try this but you can also use an (cloth ) iron on low setting (depending on how much heat resistant your wig is , I went up to the polyester setting which is the second hottest /steamiest my iron had ), either directly on the wig or put a towel or cloth on top of it .

Only if your wig is low quality or synthetic. I had a synthetic wig that I tried this on, and I just applied the mixture, waited for it to dry a little, and brushed it out. It worked great.

what if you don't have a wig brush?

RachelM87 (author)melodie.moen2016-02-15

I recommend that you use a boar-bristle brush. It won't tug on the wig, and it smooths it out. You can find those at Walmart. :)

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much! I did this, and it worked wonders! I thought I was never going to be able to restore my wig, but it worked! Thank you so much!
