Hmm..

well... I hear using a straightening iron on the LOWEST POSSIBLE SETTING sometimes works.

With my Ienzo wig, which had reccently been attacked by a dog, I used a wig brush (which can be bought online, at Sally's, or any other beauty store) and gently sprayed it with a spray bottle full of 1 part fabric softner and 2 parts water. It made the wig smell good and the fly aways stayed down for the most part, and it's very useful when you need to detangle the wig.

Only bad side is that the wig gets a bit stiffer, but to me that was good 'cause it kept it's shape with styling for longer than it use to.

I guess it all depends on how frizzy it is though.

Sometimes you do have to cut it, but I would wait until you've tright other methods first.. Maybe by that time most of it's defrizzed and it's just little ends.

I have a anti-static spray... (Static Guard; Blue can, orange cap)... Which does wonders on just about anything. Whether it is a clingy skirt or blouse or fly-aways and frizz.

For the wig; I would suggest giving this a try before you so much as look at a pair of scissors. Spray a little on a soft brush and gently brush out the area. It should flatten down completely. It smells a little funky but it wears away haha.

Trust me. I have an irish dance wig; http://prostores2.carrierzone.com/se.../Detail?no=255; We use this Static Guard to keep it from becoming a frizzy mess between storage and the actual wear!

Mane n'Tail Detangling Spray and Motions Oil Sheen also works well. Or washing it with a bit of conditioner. It sort of depends on what kind of frizz you have- is the fibre actually kinked up and bent, waved (in which case straightening it out usually fixes it), or is it just tangling easy and staticky? If it's the first one, usually the permanent solution is to cut off the kinked strands, but you'll probably save most of them by the above methods.

If it's a really really bad frizz, you might just have to cut it off. That's unfortunately happened to me before, but sometimes it's just really bad and you know. It just happens. But usually, I mix any wig detangler and water, and it works. You can use a plastic comb that's made for human hair and a wire wig brush. Don't completely soak the wig, just get it a little bit damp. Don't forcefully brush the wig too hard, or the frizz will get WAY worse. You can use a blow dryer or flat iron on the lowest setting only. Don't hold it on there too long, though.
