HOW DO I REMOVE FRIZZ FROM MY HIGH HEAT (HD) SYNTHETIC WIG?
To properly remove frizz from your HD (Heat Defiant) wig or hair piece, first you need to assess the level of frizz and tangling on your wig. If the frizz and tangling is mild, you should try flat ironing as the first step.
For this, you will need Jon Renau HD Smooth Detangler, Jon Renau Heat Treat Thermal Spray, a flat iron, a wide tooth comb and a canvas block head.
Due to the nature of high heat synthetic fibers, frizzing can occur. Frizzing of the wig is caused by friction, as well as tension or pulling on the fiber. To avoid this, only use your Jon Renau wide tooth comb to ensure no tension is caused.
Steps for Flat-Ironing Your High Heat Synthetic Wig
Avoiding the cap, apply 3-5 pumps of HD Smooth Detangler, focusing on the mid-lengths to ends. Gently comb through with your Jon Renau Wide Tooth Comb to free hair of any tangles. The JR Wide Tooth Comb is the only tool to be used on your HD Fiber. Other brushes and combs will cause frizzing and tangling.
Set your Flat Iron to 270 - 280 degrees Fahrenheit. Starting at the nape, take a 1 inch section and spray 1-2 pumps of Heat Treat Thermal Spray and slowly flat iron the hair, following the comb.
Repeat 2-3 times per section and allow fiber to cool completely. Comb each section to continue smoothing the fiber and continue working up the sections until all ends are smooth again. If frizzing is excessive, use the Jon Renau Steamer before flat-ironing for extra smoothing.
Steps for Steaming Your High Heat Synthetic Wig
For this additional step, you will also need the Jon Renau Steamer and a fine tooth comb. This is the ONLY exception to using a Wide Tooth Comb.
Using a fine tooth comb that is heat-resistant, direct the fiber into a smooth downward direction. Direct the steam at the damaged areas, keeping the steamer nozzle above your working hand. Using a side-to-side motion, apply the steam to the area, while gently combing the fibers straight. Do NOT hold steamer in place for more than 3 seconds.
Remove steam and allow fibers to cool and dry completely. Then, follow the steps for Flat-Ironing Your Wig - See Above.
