Is Your Heat Resistant Wig Frizzing?

Is Your Heat Resistant Wig Frizzing?

High heat synthetic fiber is more luxurious and realistic than any other synthetic fiber, giving the wearer the heat styling benefits of human hair without the high investment

If not properly cared for it can tangle and frizz, causing damage to the fiber




When frizzing is mild, use a professional flat iron with a digital temperature setting at 270-280°F to smooth the fiber.
If frizzing is excessive, use the Jon Renau Steamer to steam and smooth the fiber, followed by a flat iron set at 270-280°F.
PRO TIP: Most wig shops offer steaming as a service

Ensure you perform a daily care routine. Check the nape area & ends for signs of frizzing. At the first sign of frizzing, use a flat iron to smooth the area. You can find more information HERE

Tools for daily HD care
Jon Renau Wide Tooth Comb will detangle the fiber without causing tension and damage to the fiber
HD Smooth Detangler will keep the fiber smooth and protect from tangling

HAIR WE WEAR : 2016 RECAP

HAIR WE WEAR : 2016 RECAP

HAIR WE WEAR : 2016 RECAP
Published on Jon Renau  |JANUARY 9, 2017
2016 is over and we would like to take a look at the beautiful stories our wig wearers shared with us in the past year. Thank you so much for opening up about your experiences and allowing us to share them with the world. 

VANESSA
18 months ago I was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis. Following the devastation of losing all my hair including my eyebrows and lashes, I then developed Atopic Eczema over 90% of my body. These were hugely dark and life altering times for me and at my lowest points I felt it was very hard for me to live. A woman’s hair is something that is an enormous part of her beauty, character, identity, femininity and essential for some camouflage” – Vanessa


KELLIE
If I had to offer advice to anyone thinking about buying a wig I would say – try before you buy!  Find a good stocklist and work out what style you feel comfortable with (or even range of styles – don’t be afraid to have new looks!).  Once you get past the initial fear of wearing a wig it can be so much fun – let’s face it, how else could you get a perfect head of hair, a new look, salon style and color in a length and shape of your choice? ” – Kellie


AMANDA

The only thing that matters to me right now is that I am comfortable with the way I look and the person I am. I wasted too many years of my life concerned about what someone would think of me if I revealed my secret that I was wearing wigs. Those were years where I didn’t do sports, didn’t go swimming, didn’t dance, and panicked every time the doorbell rang and my wig wasn’t on my head. I am a much happier person with my secret out there and it has given me the ability to be someone different every day. How great is that?!” – Amanda

NELLIE

My advice for a new wig wearer would be to allow yourself time to adjust. Give yourself a break and then become whoever you want to be! Jon Renau wigs will give you your confidence back and with their huge selection of wigs and colors you can become a new woman every day of the week!” – Nellie




MAJA



Don’t hold on to the old you! Let it go. Even if your hair comes back, the experience you had have changed you anyways! Don’t waste your energy trying to look like you used to look before. You are wasting your time! Take the chance and all your energy to create something new, to find your peace with this situation. And if people look at you, look back at them and smile. It will make you happier than you were before!” – Maja



JENNIE

I have had alopecia for over 15 years. I lost all of my hair about a year ago. Before losing all of my hair I just had patchy hair loss which I covered with careful styling, hair extensions, and/or headbands. I even would glue hair to my bald scalp in places. Injections worked for a while but they were painful, stressful, and didn’t prevent new spots from appearing. Buying my first Jon Renau wig made me confident enough to stop covering the inevitable and let nature do its thing” – Jennie





JAIME
I think that for anyone in a situation like mine, where a wig is a necessity rather than a choice, it takes some getting used to and you have to find your own way with it. Try as many as you can, but I am a HUGE advocate of the lace front, specifically Jon Renau!” – Jaime





CARLY 





I have been wearing wigs on and off throughout my hair loss years. My very first wig when I was 11 was hideous!! I am so glad that over the years wigs have improved so much and are an absolute joy to wear! I love changing my look every day, although sometimes I just can’t decide who I’m going to be….blonde bombshell or fiery redhead, long, short, straight or curly!” – Carly



SHELLY

I started to first lose my hair a year ago but was officially diagnosed with alopecia areata in February of this year. I lost my hair very fast and it was very overwhelming. I remember handfuls of hair and just crying in panic and fear. Finally making the decision to shave the rest of my hair off and start to wear wigs was daunting at first but ended up being the best decision I could have made” – Shelly



LORI

When I went to my first doctor’s visit, I was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis. I was very conflicted.  So thankful my diagnosis wasn’t life threatening.  Yet with every handful that fell out, I mourned the loss of me.  Losing my eyebrows and eyelashes was by far the most painful emotionally.  I truly felt like an alien.  I got to the point where I only had a few stragglers on my head, which looked like straw … yellow and dead.  I had my husband shave the last little bit off.  I wanted the loss to stop.  He shaved his head as well.  We celebrated the new Me! Bare, bold and beautiful!” – Lori


SHANNON
While I’ve always had really thin hair, my hair loss accelerated at the beginning of 2015 when I stopped taking birth control pills to try and become pregnant. After over a year of not getting a cycle, I was prescribed fertility treatments, which only accelerated my hair loss. I ended up losing around 70% of the hair I once had. It was devastating at first and I went through many nights of crying over my hair loss coupled with not being able to get pregnant. When I found wigs, the worries of my hair loss were resolved” – Shannon

The Hair We Wear by Shannon


December 6, 2016 as posted on Jon Renau

THIS MONTH WE ASKED SHANNON - OUR END WEARER - TO SHARE HER STORY WITH US.
I’m 33 years old, living in Edmonton, Canada with my husband and our puppy. While I’ve always had really thin hair, my hair loss accelerated at the beginning of 2015 when I stopped taking birth control pills to try and become pregnant. After over a year of not getting a cycle, I was prescribed fertility treatments, which only accelerated my hair loss. I ended up losing around 70% of the hair I once had. It was devastating at first and I went through many nights of crying over my hair loss coupled with not being able to get pregnant. When I found wigs, the worries of my hair loss were resolved.


How long have you been wearing wigs or hairpieces?

I purchased my first wig in early 2016. It was not a Jon Renau wig and while I was thrilled with how much volume and hair this wig had, I did not get a positive first reaction from my mother. That almost ended my journey with wigs altogether, but I wasn’t quite ready to give up. I decided to purchase a Jon Renau Courtney in 4 shortly after as I wanted to try one of the top of the line wigs to see if maybe it would look more realistic. When this wig came, I was hooked. I fell in love instantly with how good my new ‘hair’ looked. It was perfect. Since then, I’ve quickly expanded my collection and now own almost every style and every color Jon Renau makes. I’m hooked! One of my current favorites is Ignite in Shaded Praline. It’s fun, flirty, and so easy to wear. Nearly every time I leave the house in this style, some stranger compliments me on how great my hair looks. After not being able to do much with my real hair for years, I love being able to change my look or color instantly.

What advice would you give to a new wig wearer?

First, make sure that you do your research by watching YouTube videos and reviews. These helped me immensely when I first started.

Second, when your first wig comes, wear it around the house for a few days first. Get comfortable with how it feels on your head and how you look. This way, you won’t be so anxious about going out in the ‘real world’.

And when that day does come that you decide to debut your wig in public, own it. Remember if you believe it looks great and just like your real hair, no one will think twice about it. Confidence in Hair is everything.

What do you love about our brand?

I love that Jon Renau is so easy to put on and go. I don’t need to fuss with these wigs or make modifications to make them ‘work’. I have yet to meet a Jon Renau wig that I didn’t love when I put it on. The styles are up to date and current and the colors are always very well done.

No other wig line give me the confidence to go out in public with the feeling that my hair looks great like Jon Renau gives me. They look so very real.

Why Should YOU Apply for Train the Trainer?


Why Should YOU Apply for Train the Trainer?

 

The Train The Trainer seminar & workshop is an exciting and unforgettable event with educators and participants from all over the country. Being a professional educator can be one of the most exciting and fulfilling professions on the planet, however it involves much more than simply “telling” or “showing” an audience what to do technically. The art of speaking, opening up a room, creating engagement, enrollment, emotion, buy-in, participation, fun and excitement is what separates the amateurs from the professionals.
