Whether you wear a wig to conceal hair loss or for fashion purposes, there are a wide range of pieces available for you to choose. Wigs made from real human hair tend to be costly, so many opt for synthetic hairpieces. Over time, static electricity can build between the fibers and result in frizz or uncomfortable shock when putting on the wig. You can reduce the amount of static in your synthetic hairpiece by using several simple techniques.
Fill a sink with cool water. Add a quarter-sized amount of wig conditioner to the water; stir until sudsy.
Submerge the wig in the conditioner, and agitate gently for several minutes. Remove the wig, shake out excess water, and allow it to air-dry completely. Repeat Step 1 and 2 after each washing to reduce static and frizz.
Caress the entire wig thoroughly with a fabric softener sheet. The sheet will pull out most of the static electricity held by the synthetic fibers.
Fill a plastic spray bottle with cool water. Spray a light mist of water over the wig and rub it gently into the fibers to eliminate static.
