Tutorial: Fixing Ponytail wig by LolaInProgress Tutorial: Fixing Ponytail wig by LolaInProgress
Hopefully you guys can follow this. This is the easiest way I've found to return any straight ponytail wig to its frizz free glory.

Any Miku or Linalee cosplayer knows how bad these wigs can get the moment you put it on, let alone halfway into a con. With the above methods though my wigs look brand new every-time I use them.

Added benefits is the product left in the wigs from this process makes them slightly less likely to frizz.

EDIT: The little pink bottle of wig spray is no longer available at this time, you can make your own with liquid fabric softener and water though!

Could you post a new link for the wig spray on Ebay? The old one isn't working.

Sadly I cannot find that spray anymore! Seems to not be working! However you can make a version at home, Get a spray bottle, some liquid fabric conditioner/softener and mix it with water till its thin enough to spray. Works about the same! I hope that helps!

My miku wig went a bit frizzy...
so I laid it out on an ironing board, and covered it with fabric then ironed it - it straightened out really well! :la:

Hi! :D
I'm gonna purchase a Miku wig soon, and I'm definitely balancing out which one takes the longest to tangle.
Still, I'm going to need this tutorial, I know that.
I'd just like to make a small note that I know wigs that can't handle just any brush. :/ Even quality wigs need a wig brush to keep falling strands to a minimum. Combs work just fine though. Brushing the wig brutally can have the same effect.
But since we're using a detangler, I guess it's safe to use any brush. :) I just like to be careful with my wigs. I don't want them to get a lot thinner every time I try to fix them haha.
