Any tips for long wigs? I'm cosplaying Ember from Danny Phantom and ended up totally frying a decent wig just trying to pull it into a ponytail :(

Hello there!

For long wigs, working slowly and carefully is everything. It can also help to pre-treat the wig with silicone to help prevent the fibers from gripping each other and tangling. This won’t be perfect, but it’ll help keep things smooth.

For something like a ponytail, it can help to work slowly and in sections. Take the fiber layer by layer in multiple sections across the wig. Since wig fibers are different from hair, you can’t just pull it back like you would with your actual hair. As you are working, make sure to keep the fibers detangled with a wide-tooth comb, and that you gently work any tangles out from the bottom up. If you work slowly and make sure to comb as you go, it should help keep the fibers smooth. 

When wearing the wig, it can also help to detangle throughout the day, and if you need to, get a friend to help comb the back. Ty to keep out of the wind, and if the hair is loose, try to loosely braid it if you need to walk around outside in inclement weather. It can also help to store the wig in a loose braid to help protect it.

You can also carefully detangle and fix a “fried” wig with a flatiron, as long as the wig can handle the amount of heat.

I hope that helps! Good luck :]

I did a bit of closet cosplaying and thought I’d have some fun with gifs, welcome to Ember’s video blog! Where Danny delivers unwanted commentary from the sidelines ~
