I'm planning on buying this wig because it is the perfect color and length for the Kirino cosplay I'm doing but at the ends of it flips outward and it needs to well not do that. I was wondering if there was a way to flatten the hair or make it not flip out like how it does without damaging the wig?
Here is a picture.

One method I read and was also given, is using boiling water (do this on a tall stand in the tub) and pour it over the wig. Can't say I've done it myself, but it's in the tutorial threads so it must work lol

You're welcome. I'm pretty sure that's all you gotta do though other then brush it after which is pretty obvious

There's also the option of using a flat iron on a low setting but you may not wanna use that if the wig isn't heat resistant. You can also use a steamer (my favorite and preferred method) and a brush. It's pretty fast as I've found it to be the fastest method and doesn't leave your wig wet if you're impatient (such as myself).

A steamer? Do you mean like the kind you can bring with you places and you use on clothes for last minute needs? If so I have one of those. I will need to try this..
