Let us waste no time getting straight into the most Frequently Asked Questions regarding Ellen Wille's Heat-Friendly Synthetic Fiber.
What is the benefit of Heat-Friendly Synthetic Fiber?
This is a great option for wearers who like to change up their styles and are not quite ready to commit to Human Hair maintenance. There are several benefits to having Heat-Friendly Synthetic Fiber. One being minimal maintenance. Also, in most cases, the denier of the fiber is thinner than some traditional synthetic fibers, resulting in a more natural look and texture. The most noticeable benefit is that heat-friendly fiber can be heat styled, so the styling options are unlimited with the additional feature of style memory.
What is Style Memory?
Style Memory is a built-in feature with Heat-Friendly Synthetic Fiber. This means that once the fiber is styled with a heating tool (flat-iron, curling iron, wand, etc.), the new style will remain intact until heat is applied again. Water will not remove the style, so your curls and waves will last through washes.
(Maximum heat recommended to use is 260°F-280°F)
How do I heat style Heat-Friendly Synthetic Fiber?
Ellen Wille recommends heat styling this fiber in a wet condition. Take small controllable sections and lightly spray with water. Next, apply your professional grade heat styling tool using a maximum heat of 260°F-280°F. Allow the fiber to cool completely to lock in the style. If adding curls, be sure to clip the curl in place, and then allow it to cool before releasing the clips.

Do I have to apply heat to Heat-Friendly Synthetic Fiber?
Yes, Heat-Friendly Synthetic Fiber tends to tangle over time.

You will need to apply heat periodically to remove this and keep the fiber smooth. Take small sections and lightly spray with water. Using a fine-tooth comb and a flat-iron (maximum heat 260°F-280°F), Slowly guide the flat-iron with the comb and smooth out the areas that are beginning to frizz. Allow to cool.
