Keeping it soft and luxurious is easy but does require a little TLC. Follow these few simple steps to maintain style, colour, and the overall integrity of your investment.
Detangle Before Washing
TIP: HYDRATING on the other hand is RECOMMENDED DAILY in order to provide the needed substitution of oils that our bio-hair receives naturally.
If using WIG SPECIFIC spray leave-In conditioner, spray from mid-shaft to ends, avoiding roots and hand-tied knots.

For hold, we provide various Jon Renau mists that are paraben and sulphate free that brush out easily, leaving no residue. We also carry other wig specific Brands as well.
Flat Iron: Heat to 130 degrees C or 270 degrees F. Spray with Jon Renau Heat Treat Thermal Spray to protect the fibre (1-2 pumps only per section to avoid over saturation); stay at least 1-2” away from base and slowly smooth flat iron down through ends. Allow hair to hang naturally and cool completely.
TIP: Use Jon Renau Smooth Detangling Spray DAILY, especially for mid-length and long-length wigs or hairpieces.
Curl: Heat to 130 degrees C or 270 degrees F. Treat as above to protect fibre, then gather hair into curling iron, smooth through to ends, then roll iron up towards base maintaining a distance of 1-2 inches. Hold 10-15 seconds then turn tip of iron toward the ground and release curl into the palm of your hand. Holding curl in hand, gather up toward base and secure with small metal clip (like a pin curl). Allow curls to cool completely (about 5 minutes) before removing the clip. Blend with your wide tooth comb or just fingers for great results!
These beautiful wigs are made of premium Kanekalon synthetic fibres that do not tolerate direct heat. Please be cautiously aware when near ovens, BBQ’s, etc., as even a short burst of intense heat can cause irreparable damage to these fibres.
Unless you have been advised otherwise, store your wig folded in half, temple to temple, inside out, within tissue paper, inside its box.
