How to get your Halloween wig to look amazing!

Halloween wigs, there are those costumes that just aren’t complete without one. Unfortunately, most Halloween wigs are a hot mess right out of the package.  I’ve seen several pins for how to detangle a dolls hair on Pinterest and the light bulb went off! Got to love Pinterst, right?! So I got to thinking, why can’t this work for my daughter’s wig? So I decided to give it a shot and I was beyond excited about my results!

You will need:

fabric softener


spray bottle

foam hair rollers (if your wig has curl. Also remember the smaller the roller, the more curl)

doll hair brush 

wig (this wig is a Descendants Evie wig)

Mix 1/3 fabric softener with 2/3 water in the spray bottle. I found it easier to have something support the wig as I worked. I went in sections, just like you would use the foam rollers on a person. Make sure you are careful as you brush each section, the hair can come out easily. I sprayed each section until it was evenly wet. I then started with the roller at the bottom and rolled it up to the top. I worked my way around until all the sections were finished.  Make sure you wait until it is dry completely before you take the rollers out. If your wig is straight, I would spray the mixture on, brush it out, and then let it dry.

I have to say I was shocked that it worked so well! My daughter was super excited that it looks so much better and now she can’t wait to get all dressed up and show it off!

I hope this helps your Halloween costume become that much better!

Happy Halloween!!!!

Stephanie Sanders is a Georgia girl now living in Pennsylvania with her husband and their two crazy kids. Thanks to Twilight, she reads as much as she can - her books are like her babies (and don't even think about touching her signed paperbacks)! Even though she has a lot of book boyfriends, her hubby will always be her king (She doesn't care that his name is Jacob even though she's Team Edward). When she's not curled up with a good book and a coffee she enjoys shopping, working out, crafting, music, and playing in makeup. Chocolate won't last long when she's around it, and good luck if you're in a car with her...she'll sing every song that plays!

    Last Halloween I bought my sister a wig to go with her Goth-Angel look and I guess after reading this article I would actually repair her previous wig into a top shape and maybe even color it into some fun color! This article truly helped a lot! Kudos
