For many people, frizzy, curly hair is a pain because they make us look untidy, dull or even unclean. Wigs, too, can become dry and frizzy for a variety of reasons, which can make us feel not confident and uncomfortable, and may even make us not want to wear them at all, so knowing how to use the right ways to remove frizz from wigs and make them smooth and silk is crucial. In this article, we'll give you some helpful tips and advice on how to properly remove frizz from your wig.
Why do wigs frizz?
Unlike your natural hair, wigs don't benefit from the natural moisture and oils produced by your scalp. Static electricity from various kinds of friction, tangles from incorrect grooming, too much heat applied can cause wigs frizz. Overstyling is also a factor that can make your wig more frizzy. When you do your wig with a styling tool every day, it takes away all the moisture and causes damage and frizz. As a result, over time, if you don't nourish and care for your wig properly, the wig can become dry, damaged and frizzy.

Wash your wig properly

Before shampooing, remove knots and tangles as described above, doing so as gently as possible to avoid causing any damage. Fill the sink with warm or cold water and rinse the wig. Then, apply a wig shampoo to the wig. Remember to massage from root to end to avoid tangles. Rinse your wig with warm or cold water.
Nourish your wig to defrizz
Look for a conditioner or essential oil with lots of oil to moisturize your hair and remove frizz. Some examples include olive oil, argan oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter, which can remove tangles and frills in your wig, as well as give your wig more shine. Gently apply the mixture to the wig, focusing on particularly curly areas and avoiding the top of your head. You can put a cap on the wig, let it sit for 20-30 minutes, and finally rinse it with cold water.
Use fabric softener
You can get rid of frizz in a wig with fabric softener. Mix water and fabric softener in a spray bottle, add just enough and shake well. Then lightly spray the wig. Let your hair air dry.
How to avoid your wig get frizzy?
Try to avoid heat
Synthetic hair cannot tolerate the high temperature. And although human hair wigs are made of human hair and more durable and heat-resistant than a synthetic wig, it won’t get the oils from your scalp that your natural hair would have. Too much heat can make your wig dry and frizzy. It is suggested that when styling your human hair wig if it must, use low heat as possible, heat sparingly and apply heat protection spray. It is best to let the wig air dry, but if you are in a hurry and must use a hair dryer, you can use a low heat horizontal blow dry.
Better not to wear your wig to bed
You’d better not to wear your wig when sleeping. The friction generated between your pillow and your wig when you sleep with your wigs on can cause tangles, dryness and frizzy. But if wear a lace front wig that is not easy to take it off every night, wrap your head with a silk scarf or cap when you go to bed with your wig to protect it from losing moisture, tangling, matting and frizzy.
