i got this cheap long blonde wig last year after halloween, i really liked it and it's been sitting in my closet in the bag for the past year. now i want to wear it but it has this crease in it from sitting in the bag forever, how can i get that out?? if i get it wet then let it air dry would that work? i have no idea since i don't deal with wigs, the only thing i do know is that i probably shouldn't straighten it with an iron. thoughts please?

Steam is the best way to get a crease out of plastic wig. I use a handheld travel steamer when I work on wigs. I block the wig on a canvas wig block, holding the section I want to be straight taut with a comb or brush, and hold the steamer about 6 inches away from the hair, moving it down the length of the hair.
If you do not have access to a steamer, you could try using a comb or brush to hold the section straight while using the steam from a pot of boiling water. This is a little tricky--take the time to figure out how to do this without giving yourself a steam burn! You only need a few seconds of steam to see results.
I hope this helps!

If you are *very* careful a hair dryer will work, but start conservatively with the heat setting on low and increase if necessary.
