A brush, lukewarm water and a lot of patience.

They're a nightmare like that.

The method I use, is one of two;

First, you can wash the wig but use hot water and poor straight onto the wig while it's on a wig head and leave to dry as straight as possible.

Two, you can brush the wig out, and then carefully use hair straighteners to swiftly run across sections of the wig, and straight after brush through. And then you can repeat for the rest of the wig, and repeat as much as necessary till its no longer as frizzy.

Both methods relax the fibers of the wig and when brushed, shall straighten and de-frizz. They're not the most perfect methods, but there are no perfect ways to remove frizz from a wig I've found in looking. I prefer the second method as it's more controllable, and while it takes time, it's the longest lasting method I've experimented with.
It's the one that keeps my Undertaker wig going even after 2 years or wear.

However, obviously your dealing with heat so you need to be careful not melt the wig by working with too hot water or straighteners.

I'd try the warmer water method first, as straighteners you have to be careful with (and it's the more common method using water).

If you do try the straighteners, make sure you keep the heat low. Mine are cheap ones so I turn them on and off between use to regulate the heat, but as I said in my original post... heat. Got to be careful with wigs.

Hope it works out though C:
