Straighting a wig
Post By Rocky. 11/06/09, 02:23 pm

Is it possible?

Theres a wig, perfect colour, perfect length, not too expensive, but its curly.

Is there anyway to straighten is without damaging it?

I have heard that you can pour boiling water on it.

yup boiling water. Just put it on a wig head and have it over a bath/sink.
I used it on both my wigs, you just need to leave it to dry completely - took about a day on my long one.

& it works on really cheap ones too *used on $16 wig* xD

boiling water is win <3

As has been said, boiling water, I can also say it works like magic (and if you need to you can also curl wigs using a modified method but that isn't your problem)

Not boiling!!! Very hot, but not boiling - you'll start to melt the fibre and it will pick up the texture of the wefts underneath it - not good! Use the hottest water from the tap, and top it up with a dash or two of boiling water.
