What is the best way to care for my wig?

Caring for your wig is vital to the longevity of it. There are different ways to care for your wig depending on if it is made of human hair or synthetic hair.

How do I care for my synthetic hair wig?
WE RECOMMEND WASHING YOUR ALTERNATIVE HAIR EVERY 6-8 WEARS. CLEANSE & CONDITION

  •  Before washing your wig or hairpiece, gently remove any tangles using your Jon Renau Paddle Brush or Jon Renau Wide Tooth Comb
  • Wet hair completely using cool running water
  • Gently lather the hair with a small amount of Jon Renau Synthetic Shampoo, making sure that the hair is traveling in the same direction. DO NOT rub hair as this may cause tangling
  • Rinse thoroughly under cool running water until water runs clear
  • Wrap wig or hairpiece in a towel and gently pat dry
  • Spray with Jon Renau Conditioning Spray (3-5 pumps) keeping away from the base of wig or hairpiece. Do not rinse out conditioner
  • Gently detangle hair using your Wide Tooth Comb
  • DRY & STYLE
    • Allow wig or hairpiece to air dry naturally by placing on a plastic or wire wig stand. DO NOT blow dry
    • For mid-length to long length styles, apply HD Smooth Detangling Spray, (3-5 pumps) focusing on bottom half of wig or hairpiece. Gently comb through using your Wide Tooth Comb
    • We recommend using your fingertips or wig brush/comb for your desired style
    • To add texture and definition, use a small amount of Piece Out Contour Fiber Crème and apply using fingertips
    • Do NOT use heat to style synthetic fiber (curling irons, flat irons or blow dryers)
  • TIPS
    • Be cautious when standing near a heat source (i.e. open oven, heater, etc.) Excessive heat can damage the fiber
    • We recommend using HD Smooth Detangling Spray with a wide tooth comb to detangle your synthetic wig. This is especially important with a mid-length to long length wig or hairpiece

How do I care for my human hair wig?

WE RECOMMEND WASHING YOUR ALTERNATIVE HAIR EVERY 6-8 WEARS
JON RENAU DOES NOT RECOMMEND COLORING OR CHEMICALLY ALTERING ALTERNATIVE HAIR.

CLEANSE & CONDITION

  • Before washing your human hair wig or hairpiece, gently remove any tangles using your Paddle Brush
  • Gently lather the hair with a small amount of Argan Smooth Luxury Shampoo, while making sure that the hair is traveling in the same direction. DO NOT rub hair as this may cause tangling
  • Rinse thoroughly in cool running water until the water runs clear
  • Apply Argan Smooth Luxury Conditioner, avoiding the base of the wig or hairpiece (applying conditioner to the base/cap may weaken the knots)
  • Using your fingers, work conditioner through mid-lengths and ends for 3-5 minutes
  • Rinse thoroughly in cool running water until the water runs clear

DRY & STYLE

  • Wrap wig or hairpiece in a towel and gently pat to remove excess water
  • Gently remove any tangles using your Paddle Brush
  • Allow cap to dry completely before applying to a canvas block head
  • Dampen hair again and apply a small amount of Blown Away Blow Dry Balm; distribute evenly throughout hair, keeping away from base
  • Starting at nape, work in 2″ sections using your Jon Renau Round Boar-Bristle brush and blow dry each section completely
  • Use medium-high heat on full power to blow dry hair. Use the “cool shot” button to lock in style
  • Human hair must be dried and styled after washing. Air-drying will leave the hair ‘un-polished’ and can trap water in the hair causing frizzing

TIPS

  • Blown Away Blow Dry Balm is designed as a foundation product for all human hair blow outs. All other styling products can be layered over Blown Away
  • Boho Beach Mist can be used on dry hair to add texture and revitalize natural curls
  • Use professional grade heat styling tools with digital temperature settings to control heat. Use no higher than 350° F to help maintain the integrity of the hair
  • Use Versatile 3-Way Hair Spray to hold your finished style. Adjust nozzle to “L” for low, “M” for medium, or “H” for high hold, depending on your needs
