I tried your tutorial with a wig that had been damaged with make-up, too much product, and months of wasting away in the bottom of a box. It looks really nice now and I think I'll be able to use it again! Thanks for the tutorial!

It worked super well for me!

Me and my friend had been trying to figure out the correct way to wash our wigs, and I saw this tonight and decided to try it. And now my wig is all clean~ c:
Thank you very much for posting this ~

Sewing commissions are on hold, but I still do custom pattern-drafting. PM for details.

I really need to fix a tangled wig, so I want to try this, but what I'm worried about is the soft curls in my wig. Should I let it dry wrapped around curlers?

If you have a good wig, the curls should bounce back when it dries. I washed a flippy wig and it went right back to being flippy after I dried it.

I just finished trying it on the short part of my miku wig and it is currently drying ^_^

but the idea of washing the pigtails kinda scares me since they're so tangled that and because they're so long
so any ideas on how I could try with the pigtails?

Your best bet would be to up the amount of conditioner you're using in the solution and wash them as you normally would. I'd probably invest in an oil sheen spray to keep them from tangling in the future.
