Playing bingo for brains!  
If there is such a thing as a personalized hell with tortures designed for maximum suffering, I think mine probably includes brushing out this terrible thing! For all of the two years that I've had it, it's been of questionable character. Eyewitnesses claim to have seen it transform into a hairy octopus and devour innocent bystanders, and there are plenty of rumors that the wig is of unearthly origins ... or that it's descended from a long line of vampires. It takes childish delight in suffering, and develops knots and floofs and frizz at every imaginable slight. Oh no! You turned your back on it! It is tangled again. Oh dear! You ate a cracker! You neglected its feelings, and it is tangled still more! Oh my! You looked at it funny, and now you cannot tell if you ever brushed it at all.

Many hours later, I think I can now safely say that whatever career paths lie before me in my lifetime, "hairstylist" is not going to be one of them. I also have to get a new wig for Rin. Though I had hoped to rehab this black blob, I am forced to realize that it is either a lost cause, or one that only a Wig Master with Unequaled Patience can possibly succeed in. Not only that, but in the end, you see, I took revenge for every tangle by cutting every tangle off.

It took me about three hours to find the newspaper today, and it seems that the copy I grabbed was one of the remaining few. It was bizarre!

Have you tried using a silicon based wig smoother spray?
Something like:

Maybe next time try a wig made of different materials. The higher quality ones, though more expensive, are probally easier to maintain.

Yes, the monster had been copiously coated at one stage in the game.

It (or what remains of it) is actually not a bad quality wig, and was fairly expensive to purchase. It just has ... temper issues. x_x

:O Wig, fake hair, real hair, even fur that is that long ought to be untangle with a wooden comb. Brushes are only good at volumizing AFTER it is combed. I had to learn it the hard way for several years before realizing what I was doing to my hair (it wouldn't have gotten to where it is now if I didn't discover the use of a comb).

Wooden, eh? Perhaps that was one reason it and I did not ever end happily. XD

you can also use liquid fabric softener when you wash it. And start brushing at the bottom, with a detangling comb, and if it is really bad, i like to use citrashine spray, it is easy to come by and smells really good. i need to know your head circumference while wearing your ro wig. I still have a special project in the works, and and to the point where that measurement would be rather helpful.

Hahaha! This wig is haunting me. I cut it downstairs and cleaned up afterwards, yet hairs from the former-Skuld wig are everywhere. XD

I measured my noggin in a wig, and eet is a marvelously large 24 inches. Graaah my head is huge. @_o
