Hatsune Miku non-braided wig technique?

Alright. I, like many others, have a Hatsune Miku wig. Wearing it for less than an hour creates crazy tangles. I have to brush it out often, and the twin tails are gonna kill me! I braid them afterwards, but I want to have an accurate cosplay, meaning that I don't want to have them braided at conventions. If I don't braid them, horrible tangles (Arrg!!) Any recommendations?

I've heard wig conditioner is excellent for this. I don't know what brands are best, though. I need to research it myself for a few long-hair cosplays I'm doing this year...

There's this silicone spray stuff that's specifically made to use on wigs so they don't tangle nearly as easily. You could look into that.

Yeah, that does sound helpful. Think it would work with synthetic hair?

Which one? My suggestion? Or the other?
If you mean mine, that's the whole point..The spray I mentioned is specifically made for wigs..I can't say for the other, though I've heard it does work fine for wigs.

Also remember, when talking about wigs 99% of the time everyone always means synthetic..Almost no one can afford human hair wigs lol So when we suggest things for wigs, we are usually talking about fake hair..

Ahh, sorry. I didn't know that most of them were synthetic. And yeah, I meant yours.

Yea, there ARE wigs that aren't synthetic, but they are so high in price that pretty much no one buys them..Plus it's normal human hair, you can only do to them what you can do to your own hair..They don't stay spiked as great (just like real hair they go limp faster and whatnot, and so on). So yea, any time we talk about wigs, unless it's stated that someone is using a human hair wig, it will always be synthetic.
