Fixing a wig

We bought Cassidy's Halloween costume last night. It's Daphne from Scooby doo. It comes with a wig in a bag and needles to say, it is out of shape, the bangs stick up in the air. Anyone have a suggestion about how to fix it?

  • You might be able to soak it or spritz it with fabric softner to relax it & make the hair part more manageable. If you have a bowling ball or large bowl you can use that to shape it. Soak it in water mixed with fabric softner for a bit, then shape it around the bottom of the bowl or the ball & let it dry.

  • Try washing it with fabric softener, comb it into place and lay flat to dry. Comb it gently first to get out any knots and do not wring it out or rub it, just swirl it in the water.
