What is the recommended care for a blended-fiber wig?

Synthetic-safe care products will not damage the human hair in these blended-fiber wigs, but human-hair products may damage the heat-friendly synthetic fiber of the blend. We recommend that you use the same care techniques that you would for synthetics since that material generally makes up about 70% of the wig. Heather’s personal care routine for these wigs: Use just a little fabric softener in lukewarm water and swish the hair around. There is no need for any scrubbing or harsh chemicals. Rinse by filling a basin with clean, cold water and gently swishing. Repeat until water is clear. The condition with a leave-in conditioner, such as Jon Reanu's HD Smooth Detangler. You may also want to consider using a silicon spray (like the Simply Stylin’ spray in our store) to restore the protective silicone anti-static coating on the hair between washings. Gentle is the name of the game for keeping these wigs looking their prettiest!
