Care for synthetic wigs

I absolutely love wearing synthetic wigs. The only problem I have with them is that they start to frizz in the back where the hair rubs on my back. If you wear wigs or know how to care for them what if anything can be done to keep them from frizzing and is there anything that can be done to defrizz them?

I was hoping someone would have a wealth of information about this because I have been searching for answers about this very thing. An illness has left me half bald, so I wear a wig. And after a while, they do start to frizz. I can't afford a human hair wig. Anyway, all I know to do is use wig shampoo and conditioner. They say to just put the conditioner in the water and swirl the wig around in the water, but I'm going to try putting some on a few parts of the wig. Maybe actually putting it on the hair will decrease the frizz.

I have had human hair wigs also and I stopped buying them because they are so expensive and I had the same problems with them. In my opinion they don't wear as well as the snthetic ones.

Really? That makes me feel better. I couldn't afford them, but I really miss my hair. I assumed they would be better, but I'm glad to hear they aren't.

I know that this is an older post, but I just finished writing an article about how I de-frizzed one of my synthetic wigs. If you want to check it out, it's here: http://www.jeezlouise.net/how-to-defrizz-a-synthetic-wig/ I hope it's helpful. :) Louise
