If the convention day is over, you should pack your wig well. Usually you get a reclosable plastic bag and a thin hairnet in which the wig is packed. Please do not throw away this packaging. You should always put your precious cosplay wigs in it before transport. This protects the wig optimally from damage. For long hair wigs you should turn in the long hair before you pack your hair again. I turn some wigs also only "externally" hair wigs, which also works, if it should go fast.

Most of us use artificial hair wigs. These do not fat like real hair, so their structure is also very sensitive. The fact that hairpins do not behave like Echthaar wigs should always be remembered. Many cosplayers swear by Silicone Spray, which is often used for greasing plastic parts on the car. Believe me, please keep your fingers off! When you spray for the first time, you can actually ease combing. Finally you spray your Wig straight with lubricant. If you use the spray too often or sprays too much on the wig lace wig glue, you smear it completely so that the hair looks wet and strandsy. So you mess up the complete wig! Uses Wig-Conditioner which is specially made to untangle wigs. It also dries completely, so you can spray your hair easily with it often. I myself use the conditioner of Ellen Wille, which one can order at Amazon. Alternatively, there is the Wig Wonder Spray from mycostumes. I have not tested this yet, but I have heard of positive experiences from friends.

Wash your wigs! By carrying dirt into your wig. Be it sweat, makeup remnants or hairspray. Wigs want to wash but want to be learned: Take lukewarm (!) Water and please use special wigs shampoo, baby shampoo or only a light flush! The reason for this is that normal shampoo contains care products that should penetrate your hair. However, since the artificial hair has neither oil nor proteins, this principle does not work and the additives stick to the surface. Here I recommend you the Pflegeshampoo of Ellen Wille, especially for synthetic hair, which I myself gladly use and good experience has made. Be careful when rinsing, so that no shampoo residues remain. Let your synthetic hair wig dry in the air and comb it only when it is completely dried by itself.

These were my personal tips, so that you can cultivate your cosplay wig - right!
