IMPROPER CARE OF ALTERNATIVE HUMAN HAIR CAN LEAD TO TANGLING AND MATTING OF YOUR PIECE. TAKE A LOOK THIS STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS OUR TEAM TAKES TO REVIVE HUMAN HAIR WIGS AND OTHER HAIR PIECES.
Assess the problem areas:
Tangling and matting at the nape;Dry and frizzy hair;Hair reversed inside of cap.
Pin the wig to the canvas head:
Use t-pins to secure at the top of each ear tab;Pin at the bottom of each ear tab;Pin at the outer corners of the nape area.
Begin the detangling process:
Separate the hair into small sections to begin the detangling process in the extremely matted areas;Separating into small sections allows you to have more control in that area and does not put as much tension on the hair when brushing/combing through.
Condition the wig:
Combine Jon Renau Luxury Smooth Contioner with 2-3 pumps of Argan Treatment Mist;
Blend products in your hands
Rub the products into the matted area:
Apply the mixture to the affected areas;Avoid applying too much or getting near any hand tied areas.
Detangle one more time
Gently begin to comb the tangles out in small sections;
Wash your wig:
Next step is to perform our recommended cleansing process for human hair systems;Using cool running water, use Jon Renau Luxury Smooth Shampoo and rinse;Then apply Jon Renau Luxury Smooth Conditioner throughout mid-strands and ends, then rinse.
Deep condition the wig:
After the wig has been cleansed, you will begin the deep conditioning process;First, brush through the wig with Jon Renau Paddle brush.
Next, apply Jon Renau Luxury Smooth Conditioner and 4-6 sprays of Jon Renau Argan Smooth Treatment mist through the hair avoiding the base of the cap.
Finally, apply low heat around the hair with a blow dryer for about 1-2 minutes;Once deep conditioning process has been completed, rinse the wig with cool running water.
Once your wig cap is completely dry, re-dampen the hair.Gently brush through the hair and apply Jon Renau Blown Away Blow Dry Balm. This will help to smooth the cuticles and protect against UV damage.
Use a round Boar Bristle Brush to blow dry.
Style as desired:
For this piece we used Jon Renau Heat Treat Thermal Spray to protect the hair from heat damage and curled the hair with a curling iron.
