Resolved Question:

when exposed to the cold air in alaska like 45 degrees below zero, does the synthetic hairs of a costume wig become brittle and break off? Or do they just seem a little stiff and remain somewhat flexible?

The synthetic hairs of a costume wig might be able to tolerate the severe cold weather you mention, but it would depend upon the exact synthetic material the wig was made of, whether it would freeze and break or remain somewhat flexible. It would also depend upon the amount of moisture in the air. If there were moisture, the synthetic material would have a greater chance of freezing and breaking.
