How to keep a long wig from tangling at a con?

Hey guys!

I'm planning to buy this wig

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2012-New-60-... em3f18cc5d9b

for my Princess Bubblegum cosplay. However, it's 1.5 meters long, and I was going to wear it to a huge convention for over six hours.

It's dead straight and I was wondering if anyone had any tips to tell me if they knew how to keep it free of tangles for the day?

Would I bring detangler with me?

Thanks c:

pre treat w silicon spray, tho itll still kink it wont b as bad. the best thing is to simplify the length but thats up to u. and the best is to get a wig from epiccosplay thats shorter and pretreat but they can get expensive fast

Well, my bext advice is to make sur eit is 100% tangle free before you head to the convention, and to bring a wig comb to the convention and take a break every hour or so so quickly comb out any tangles that are happening.

+See Costume List for Completed Projects+

+Rarity+ MLP:FiM ~100%~ Just finished!
+Matryoshka!America+ Hetalia ~20%~ Designing the Hoodie!

+2013 Plans+
+Gala!Rarity+ MLP:FiM
+Ciel Phantomhive (Vol. 6 Outfit)+ Black Butler
+Hatsune Miku (Snow Version 2013)+ Vocaloid
+Umbreon+ Pokemon

+Conventions Planned for 2013+
Sakura Con 2013 ~ 65% Likely
Everfree 2013 ~ 30% Likely
Kumori Con 2013 ~ 40% Likely
Aki Con 2013 ~ 100% Likely

One thing that reduced the tangling in my wig is Motions Oil Sheen. Spray it on 48 hours before the con (a light mist, mind you) and the wig brushes out easily. This helps with tangling afterwards too, but silicon spray may be much more reliable.

It's also a good idea to keep the wig in ribbons unless you're having your picture taken. It'll minimize movement.
See me at Vancouver's own Anime Revolution in August 2012!
See me there as Lumpy Space Princess.

well what i do is i take a comb with me and all throughout the con, (except for when photos or eating or fangirling is involved) i brush my wig. it also tangles less often now cuz its used to being combed and so the fibers just stay flat.
so id be walking around with my comb just gently brushing my hair or something lol. if somehow ur wig gets tangly just go to the bathroom, yeah take the wig off, and brush it starting at the bottom and slowly working ur way up while holding it against the wall. if ur dedicated its easy as that without the need to buy any sort of spray bottle stuff.
