Human Hair Wig Maintenance

Human Hair Wig Maintenance Guide

We recommend washing your alternative hair every 6-8 wears.

We do not recommend coloring or chemically altering alternative hair.

We recommend performing a check wash on any human hair system within 14 days of receipt.

Check wash

Check wash

  • Before washing your human hair wig or hairpiece, gently remove any tangles using a paddle brush
  • Wet hair completely using cool running water. Comb through hair with your fingers several times
  • If no signs of tangling/matting* occur, continue to cleanse and condition while checking for excessive tangling as you go
  • If you do notice excessive tangling/matting, it may be a sign of inversion; contact your retailer or manufacturer immediately

* Tangling/matting that occurs after months of wear is due to improper care

Cleanse & condition

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

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

TIPS

  • Blown Away Blow Dry Balm is designed as a foundation product for all human hair blowouts. 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
