Using/modifying African American wigs?

Hey guys, so around my area there are a lot of beauty supply stores, aka a lot of wigs <3 except they're all African American type hair so they're shinier and a strange texture. I used one for my Haruhi Suzumiya cosplay and it was shiny and flat :C

I was wondering if there were any methods of getting rid of the shine (I did find one here but its not exactly the same type of shine so I'm pensive to try it) or any particular ways of dealing with this type of wig/styling it. Thanks in advance (pictures of my wig are in the attachments)

Talc and hair works because it add a layer of dry powder to your wig. Each wigs with produce different results and I'm not sure if it would turn your black wig ashy but you can wash it out if it doesn't work.
