How to keep your Synthetic Wig from looking frizzy

How to keep your synthetic wig from looking frizzy is a common question to ask as a wig wearer. Before we dive into taming that wig. 1st let’s look at the ways it happens in the first place. It is good to know the causes in advance to help you keep your wig from getting frizzy too much. So we’ll explore the factors behind this hair-raising phenomenon. So, grab a cup of tea, relax, and let’s dive into the world of frizz!

Why Do Synthetic Wigs Get Frizzy?

Synthetic Fibers: The Culprit? When it comes to frizz, the synthetic fibers in wigs play a significant role. These fibers are designed to mimic human hair, but they have different properties. Unlike natural hair, synthetic fibers can’t retain moisture. This lack of moisture can lead to dryness, causing the fibers to become frizzy and unruly. Is there a way to combat this inherent characteristic of synthetic wigs?

Heat and Humidity: A Frizz Fest! Picture a hot and humid day. Now, imagine wearing your favorite synthetic wig. Does it turn into a frizz frenzy? That’s because synthetic fibers are sensitive to heat and humidity. Excessive exposure to these elements can cause the fibers to expand and become frizzy. So, how can we protect our wigs from the wrath of Mother Nature?

Lack of Maintenance: Frizz’s Best Friend Proper care and maintenance are crucial for keeping your synthetic wig in tip-top shape. Neglecting regular washing, conditioning, and detangling can contribute to frizz. Additionally, brushing your wig too vigorously or using the wrong tools can damage the fibers and create frizz. Are you giving your wig the attention it deserves?

Understanding why synthetic wigs get frizzy is the first step toward combating this common challenge. By acknowledging the characteristics of synthetic fibers, being mindful of heat and humidity, and practicing proper wig maintenance, you can minimize frizz and keep your wig looking fabulous.

Are you ready to combat the frizz and bring your wig back to life?


Taming the frizz in your wig

Although synthetic wigs are prone to frizz, there are steps you can take to minimize this unwanted effect. Using wig-specific products, such as anti-frizz sprays or serums, can help tame frizz and add shine.  As I mentioned in cutting your synthetic wig, after a while, your wig will start to look a bit old and/or frizzy, this happens with synthetic wigs, especially if the style has waves or curls in it.

To combat this and to help your wig to look healthier and even new then you need to use an Oil Sheen Spray. This product can also be used on European or Asian hair to help tame and calm your dryness. Oil Sheen Spray is an afro Caribbean product as you may know afro Caribbean hair comes in a variety of textures, and this product helps tame the hair from frizzing.

As the name suggests Oil Sheen Spray is oil, when you use this product you don’t need to use a large amount. A quick spray of mist all over the wig will do the job of taming it down while giving your wig a new healthy shine in the process. When you go to buy this product you will see many different Oil Sheen Spray brands.


Don’t be fooled they all do the same job. Your deciding factor will basically be which brand you can afford and what size tin you want to purchase. The brand that I use and is different from the rest is Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Nourishing Sheen Spray. This one is different because it caters to very dry hair, not many wigs would need this brand unless it has been left dry for a long period of time.


I use this brand because I only need a small amount on my wigs, but I also use it on my natural hair. The other brands are quite adequate for dealing with dry frizzy wig hairstyles and a large tin will last a while because you are not using a large amount. You can purchase Oil Sheen Spray from any Afro-Caribbean hair shop or you can purchase it online via my links the choice is yours.

The products for your wig & the brands that I use are located in the product reference where I have listed all other products helpful in maintaining your wig.

Additionally, storing your wig properly in a cool and dry place can prevent exposure to excessive humidity.



Remember, dear readers, a little care goes a long way. Embrace your wig journey, stay frizz-free, and rock your style with confidence!
