HUMAN HAIR WIG CARE & TIPS

We recommend washing your wig every 6-8 wears

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU COLOR OR PERM WIGS OR TOPPERS

 

CLEANSING & CONDITIONING YOUR WIG

  • Before washing your human hair wig, gently remove any tangles with your Jon Renau paddle brush or Jon Renau wide tooth comb

  • Hold wig or hair piece under cool running water

  • Gently lather the hair with a capful 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 wig thoroughly in cool water until the water runs clear

  • Apply Jon Renau Argan Smooth Luxury Conditioner to the wig or topper, avoiding the base cap of the wig (applying conditioner to the base of the cap may weaken the knots) or topper

  • With your fingers, work conditioner through the ends of the hair for about 3-5 minutes

  • Rinse thoroughly in cold water until the water runs clear

DRYING & STYLING YOUR WIG

  • Wrap your wig or topper in a towel and gently pat to remove excess water

DO NOT use any type of brush to detangle your human hair wig while it is wet. Instead, gently comb through your human hair wig using only your Jon Renau wide tooth comb

 Smooth & Sleek

Blend 2-3 pumps of Argan Treatment Mist with Blown Away. Using a round boar-bristle/nylon brush, work through hair in 2” sections starting at nape. Blow dry in downward motion to smooth and direct hair 

 

Volume

Apply 2-3 pumps of Weightless Volumizing Foam throughout hair. Using a round boar-bristle/nylon brush, work through hair in 2” vertical sections starting at the nape. Over-direct hair for optimal volume.

Volume & Texture

Liberally spray Boho Beach Mist throughout the damp hair. Apply 2-3 pumps of Weightless Volumizing Foam, allow hair to dry naturally or diffuse for added fullness. 

    TIPS

    • It is recommended to use professional grade heat styling tools with digital temperature settings to control heat

    • Your styling tools should be set no higher than 350° F to help maintain the integrity of the hair

    • Versatile 3-Way Hair Spray works great to help hold your finished style. Adjust the nozzle to “L” for low, “M” for medium hold, or “H” for high hold, depending on your needs

    • When curling your human hair wig, you can use small metal clips to hold each curl while cooling for a tighter, longer-lasting curl. For a looser, more natural looking curl, allow curls to hang while cooling

    • Boho Beach Mist can be used to on dry hair to add texture and revitalize natural curls

Then too, I have purchased, the quality hair wigs from the Ehair Wig at http://www.ehairwig.com/. But now after reading your article I can take proper care of my wigs. Thank you so much.
