If i'm curling a male wig that's short, would you recommend i plonk it in the water for 3 seconds and then remove it?

It doesn't affect the wig's color? :<

Her example is with a synthetic wig, so yes, it will work.

Is there a way to straighten it back out once this has been done?

Yup, just dip it in hot water sans curlers.

to straighten, dip the ends back in the boiling water for the same amount of time and lay flat to dry.

I've been told steam methods aren't permanent, and you can make the wig straight again after a period of time. Is that true? I want to be able to straighten my wig again if need be!

I've never tried the steam method. To straighten the wig you just dip it in hot water again, this time, sans curlers!

So the dunking method DOES work. I just did my first curl job (it's on my deviant art) and I just used the steam setting on my clothes iron.

Does this work for any type of wig around the 20 / 30 / 40 dollars? (no cheap / bad quality wig ofc)

I'm all new to wigs and styling stuff and I wondered how you know if a wig is able to endure this ^^" *is scared i'll make it explode in some way*

You can always test it on a small piece. People have been using this method for a long time, even with the earlier crappy wigs.

Yay so helpful!!! especially the tip about preventing bends, god I hate bends. :D I scored some tourmaline hot rollers at Ross for $25, those work wonders on wigs, too!

Thanks for making this! I have always just poured, and never tried dunking. The weight of the water can kinda knock the curlers down a bit, so I see why dunking would work. I will have to try this next time I curl a wig.
