    My daughter-in-law says her grandma had a velvet curling iron that she used on her regular (not heat defiant) wigs to smooth them when they got frizzy. Does anyone know about using a flat iron or curling iron on regular synthetic wigs? I would be afraid it would melt them. If this is a possibility, could you share the brand of curling iron or flat iron?

    I know that you can use a hot-air brush, like Helen of Troy's...I've used mine successfully.

    Yeah I wouldn't recommend using hot tools on synthetics that aren't heat friendly, steaming is the best. I did have someone tell me I could use a flat iron if I spray it with some water and use low heat but didn't like how it came out.

    I have used used an iron on an older synthetic wig to smooth the fibers. I cover the hair first with a damp cloth and use low heat. I've also seen people use at steamer on regular synthetics. You would just have to be careful to keep it at a safe distance so as not to get the fiber is too hot.
