Hairspray or no hairspray

So I've been trying to think of ways to keep my long Wig from getting super tangled during a con and I'm wondering if lightly coating it in hairspray would keep it from tangling a little, or is it best to not use hairspray?

It best to pre-treating your wigs with silicon to prevent tangling instead.

The only place I recommend hair spray slick is the nape of the neck area of the wig as this is the location that tend to get the most tangled on costume bits.

Costume Con 35 '17
Victorian Draculaura
Regina - Once Upon a Time or Effie Trinket (maybe)

Anime North '17
Allen Crown Clown
Darling Charming

Future cosplays/cons:
Zarya Overwatch | Evil Raven Queen | Effie Trinket(FanExpo ?)
Erza Scarlet
Sakizo Anniversary
Steampunk - Bride

I would also suggest getting clear hair ties and putting them at the tips of your wig (take out for photoshoots and such)
