How to Care for Synthetic Hair

How to Care for Synthetic Hair

A crash course on how to brush, wash, style, and store all your INH faves!


The easiest way to ensure that your locks stay smooth and silky is by brushing them regularly. Just like your real hair, our products may tangle with wear. To properly brush your INH products, we recommend you use the INH Brush.

It’s lightweight and easy to use, while its mixed layered bristles guarantee that no strand is missed.

When it comes to curlier hair textures, we recommend using a wide tooth comb, such as the Dream Detangler Wide Tooth Comb.

As for brushing technique, you should brush the hair in sections. Lay the product flat on a table and use a detangling spray to help remove and prevent knots and tangles. Next, you’ll want to brush the hair starting roughly about 4 inches from the bottom of the hair. Use gentle, soft downward strokes. Once you’re done, move up 8 inches from the bottom and repeat the process until you’ve slowly made your way to the base.

not brush from base to ends, as this can cause split ends (and no one likes those!).



Wash your Insert Name Here hair pieces occasionally or if they’re really dirty. We don’t recommend frequently washing your hair pieces. Just wash them when you absolutely need to!

You can use either a mild shampoo or one that’s made specifically for wigs or synthetic fiber hair. Our Remy Human Hair products should be washed with a light sulfate-free shampoo. DO NOT RUB or lather synthetic pieces into a ball when washing!

Rinse the shampoo and apply a good amount of some moisturizing conditioner or hair mask. For best results, leave the conditioner or hair mask on for about 5 to 10 minutes. (You can also leave it on overnight!). Do not use heavy leave-in creams or oils.

Rinse the hair under cool running water until silky smooth. Lightly detangle any knots with fingers. You are also free to use detanglers, leave-in conditioners, or serums on any INH product.

It’s absolutely essential to let your items air dry, as anything else will potentially damage your beautiful locks! Do NOT blow dry your hair pieces! Doing so may result in damage to your strands.


If you don’t already know, yes, you can use all your favorite heat tools on our products (except for a blowdryer 一 you’re air drying, remember?).

The heat resistance of each item may vary, so it’s extremely important to check the item’s product page in the “ABOUT” section. Usually the highest temperature recommended for our products is 320 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep in mind that if the product is pre-styled, meaning it was originally curly, wavy, or shaped in any way that isn’t completely straight, you will lose the look permanently by using a hot tool.

Our hair pieces are heat resistant up to 320 degrees Fahrenheit, giving you to room to play with your favorite hot tools! However, keep in mind that if you apply heat to pre-styled hair pieces (such as curled or wavy textures), heat styling them will remove their original textures. Use the Safety Kit to extend the life of your hair and protect from heat damage.



So you’ve brushed and washed your INH faves and you’re wondering what is the best way to store it to preserve its longevity. Don’t worry, we got you covered.

Hi! Let’s say I wanted to curl or straighten my pony tails that I purchased. Can I style them on my own/apply heat or is that not recommended?


I lost the hairnet and bag because I didn’t read into anything or know any better. Any other suggestions on how to store my pony ?
