Wigs and Water

uh until recently i've always used my real hair for cosplays but i don't really wanna cut it all off again for one character so i bought a coulpe of wigs but heres the problem i'm terminally obsessed with my own hygien when at conventions particularly in warmer weather and shower at least twice a day.
so the question is, is it okay to put a wig over wet hair???

I've never had a problem with it. Just expect your hair to stay wet almost all day, or at least while you're wearing the wig. It also may get a bit hot/steamy.. but its only something you would feel.. don't worry, you wont have steam rising from your wig.

And it depends on the thickness of your hair too I suppose, and how long it takes to dry normally. So give it a good towel dry and you should be okay for the day.

Just make sure you squeeze all the water out and at least scrunch a towel around it a bit... Or else your hair will be kinda heavy inside the wig and it'll just make things annoying. @_@

Wear a wig cap before you put the wig on.
