Completely agreeing with this. I condition my wigs in a mixture of water and fabric softener, and I always use a widetooth comb while the wig is wet. The fabric softener makes the wig slippery, so the comb glides through the tangles easily. Granted, I don't use a hairbrush, which could be how some people are running into frizzing issues; I only use a widetooth comb.
