Wigs are an important part of cosplay. Often cosplayers will need to alter their appearance with different styles and colors of hair with wigs. Of the various types of wigs available, heat resistant wigs are popular due to their ability to handle styling with tools meant for human hair.
To ensure the customer’s health, MCSARA provides hair extensions that are perfect for your cosplay wig. For instance, 30-inch wig hair will be a wonderful choice for a long hairstyle. It not only brings a great hair length but also makes you natural as much as possible.
What is cosplay?
While there is no set in stone definition, the word ‘Cosplay’ usually refers to the act of dressing in a costume to recreate the appearance of a character from a work of fiction. The popular forms of this art involve donning the outfit of popular anime, video game, or comic book characters. Cosplay is not limited to this, however, and can involve non-character specific costumes, for example, maid or school uniforms.

For hair extensions, two main types of hair are synthetic and human hair. People often choose cheap synthetic hair but after twice using they will receive some problems like tangle or shed. But it is nothing when buying MCSARA hair products, especially wig. The reason is that all hair extensions are from 100% virgin hair of Vietnamese. Besides, all processes are handmade with a high-tech to keep the hair look gorgeous.
How to treat cosplay wig properly?
Once you’ve purchased a cosplay wig for yourself, it’s time to know how to take care of it. To understand the cosplay wig care, let’s read this guide that will keep your wig fresh and ready to go for your next event!
- Washing Cosplay Wig
The following method is the most common, but do note that it works best for wigs that are not heavily styled.
– Using a comb (preferable over a hairbrush) to solve any tangles out of your wig.
– Fill your sink with cold water. Warm or hot water may distort the wig’s natural shape.
– Pour a moderate amount of shampoo into the water according to the length of the wig.
– Create a soapy mixture of the shampoo and the water.
– Clean it with gentle scrunching motions. Be sure to turn your wig inside out and gently scrub the lace cap as that is where sweat and grime will most likely build up.
– Let your wig soak for five minutes and another five minutes in the clean water.
– Use the air-dry method with a towel. If your wig has any curls or wavy textures you should be careful when dry your hair to save the hair shape.
Note: Don’t set your wig in direct sunlight to dry, attempt to blow dry it, or comb out its tangles after washing as this can damage the wet, stretched-out fibers.
- Storing Cosplay Wig
When using cosplay wig, you may be wondering how to store your wigs safely. SO the first thing you need to remember is that be sure to keep them out of direct sunlight and humid environments.
Original packaging or ziplock plastic bag will be an ideal choice for storing wig. If your wig doesn’t feature special styling, you can easily store it by simply slipping it back into the original bag it was shipped in (or a large plastic ziplock bag if you’ve already thrown away the packaging). This is also a compact way to securely transport your wig when traveling. If your wig is long, you can braid the ends into two to four sections before storing to prevent tangling.
Note: Hanging your wig on a wig stand or a wig hanger to ensure the hair textures.
A useful tip for beginners: Lace cap is a perfect option which is an essential addition to keep the cosplay wig in your head stably. It helps to hide your natural hair and secure all loose strands.
- Use Heat on Cosplay Wig
A high-quality cosplay wig can tolerate most styling methods even beaching, coloring within certain limitations. Here are 5 tricks to help you achieve the best results when heat styling your cosplay wig.
- Don’t overheat your wig. This can lead to singed ends and distorted fibers. A good heat-resistant human wig should be rated to tolerate 150–180 °C (300–350 °F) or even more.
- Never heat a wet wig. Your wig should be completely dry when you style it, or else you risk misshaping the hair fibers.
- Comb the wig out first. Before you begin styling, use a comb to free your wig of any tangles so that the final look is knot-free.
