Synthetic wig frizzing

Posted on September 20, 2014 at 8:30am 0 Comments

I have two synthetic wigs that have been frizzing and yesterday I watched a you tube video on how to get rid of the frizz and it worked!! You need a steamer and comb. Comb through the hair until smooth and then put the comb underneath and put the steamer just off the hair and pull the comb and steamer down to the end of the hair. It will straighten the hair, but I was able to do it again and roll the hair under and it looks great! The wigs are looking like new again.

Hello Kathy, Welcome to Alopecia World; I'm from the Madison area. A few years ago in order to perhaps help keep the Wisconsin residents informed of local groups and/or meetings, I created Alopecians in Wisconsin which can be located under "groups". Please consider joining our local family. We are comprised of many ages; I'm now 69 but have had this disease for over 2 decades; it also ran in my family with 2 AU uncles so it was no surprise. The bad days are few at this age because I'm still otherwise healthy and grateful for that. Also, my first good hairpiece made life much easier; I continue to wear that one (now dyed reddish brown) but have since ordered another in a reddish color and love both of them. They're expensive but well worth the investment. Susan
