It doesn't tangle, but gets really messy pretty easily. Washing mine right now. It's not hard to brush out, and oddly enough, it keeps its softness. Don't think I would buy again, but it was okay for a while. I'll be more careful next time in buying something like this.
But on the flip side of it all, a wig stand, the cap, and a brush came with it-so that's always nice! Everyone likes free stuff. :D
