For one I rotate them.  I don't wear the same wig every day. 
 
A trick a lady taught me where I purchase my wigs is to wash my wigs in cool water and fabric softner.  They smell nice and it seems to protect the fibers of the wig.
 
 
 
MoreHair_43, 
 
Thanks for the tip.  My questions are...
 
How much faric softner?  Mix it with shampoo?  What kind of shampoo?  I read on another thread that this will also help to cut down on the shine.

my bf thinks its my hair so ummm...i sleep with it. that messes up the wig and i have to go back and purchase another after 2.5 weeks. ($20)
 
now when my bf sleeps over i will put on and "old" wig to bed and put the new one on in the morning. lol
 
 
LOLLOLLOL I do the same thing. 
I have a curly wig that lasted almost a year (synthetic), and rocking a modified blunt bang BJ wig (model: Shiloh) that is cute but dang it tangles at the neck really badly.  Can't wait to take this off for my install.

lol @ 1bcheri.......that is actually a great idea! But my hubby knows the deal, so I can just wear 'em during the day....or whenever he wants to see a new style.

does anyone know exactly how to preserve the life of a longer synthetic wig? what are the best products to use? what are your methods for washing? conditioning? are any of you ladies taping or glueing down your synthetics? i heard taping your wig on will make it look more natural around the hairline,especially for wigs without bangs. if anyone has any info please share! thanx!!

My Tricks to keep them looking nice

1. Comb with a vent brush and START AT THE BOTTOM when combing. I think people make the mistake of starting from the top. It makes the hair snap and curl up causing it to look nappy. Comb Softly.

2. Also if the hair starts to look greasy or wild, run under HOT water and use a shampoo like Prell. That will keep it fluffy.

3. The trick is to pin it up when you are sleep...or take it off. They usually get jacked when you have sex in the, they will get matted. hee-hee

4. Weather is the worst enemy with synthetic hair. Humidity is the WORST! I have used Victoria Secrets Lotion too and it make makes the hair look more in place and it gives it shine. The sheen tends to fade away during the day and it can make it look too stringy(starts to look like synthetic )

5. If you start to see nappy sections cut them off are the root because the good hair will start to tangle with the nappy.

If worn daily, not slept in and treated right..should last many months. I have some that I have worn for about 2 months so far when I add up the days..and others that I wear on a weekly/monthly basis that have lasted years.
