How to Maintain Heat-Friendly Synthetic Fiber

How to Maintain Heat-Friendly Synthetic Fiber

In the world of hair, where would we be without heat tools? Of course, I mean hair dryers, curling wands, and flat irons.

While you may adore the wave you get from your curling iron, not all wigs can take the heat. Human hair wigs can be heat-styled like biological hair but not all synthetic wigs can. If you’d like to utilize your flat iron, we recommend you check the wig's hair fiber. 

Heat-friendly fiber wigs go by many names, depending on the brand.

  • Jon Renau wigs, look for Heat Defiant HD or HD High Heat synthetic Fiber.
  • Raquel Welch labels theirs as Tru2Life Heat-Friendly synthetic hair.
  • Ellen Wille pieces, you’ll want their heat-friendly synthetic hair.
  • Rene of Paris also goes with heat-friendly synthetic hair for their products.


Still, all of the above mean the same thing: wearable hair that can be styled with heat tools. Ultimately, it means the versatility of human hair, with the price point and low maintenance of synthetic. Heat-friendly fiber gives you the best of both wig worlds!

If you’d like to add a heat-friendly piece to your collection, you’ll want to check out our best-sellers below! For more tips and tricks, check out our Heat Friendly Synthetic YouTube video
