I'm in sort of a time crunch- would my wig be somewhat deshined in less than five days?

i tried this and it worked!!
im also  curious if you can soak it for less time?

This is fantastic! Thank you!

One question though; will this damage the wig?
Depending on what the wig is, it seems to sometimes discolor it.

mine has a strong smell, is there something that could be done about it?
CattyMcNuggets's avatar
Try using some fabric softener that has a nice smell.
Or even just wash with the shampoo you use every day (Better if you use a high end brand for the wig)

The result looks fantastic, I'm playing with some cheap wigs I bought during Halloween, does it have to be 5 days in the bucket, or can it just be long enough to make sure the whole wig is coated?

2 questions, Is this a cheap party wig? 
Also Could you use Baby Powder instead of talc?
Supernaturalforce's avatar
Talco is baby powder. Its just in Spanish.
Ivyra's avatar
baby powder is pretty much the same thing, if you have a very dark wig you may want to get a translucent powder from a makeup aisle or something.
