There may be lookalikes out there, but no ‘feelalikes’
This brush is the Rolls Royce of brushes.  There is nothing that compares.

Mannequin Head and Clamp

I can find them cheaper than this!’ I hear you cry out!! Well, I’m sure you can, I can too as I’m an extreme bargain hunter. Let me tell you MY experience with cheaper care heads and clamp sets …..WARNING – EXTREME SARCASM TO FOLLOW (in a fun, no offence kind of way of course …)
  1. For a mere fraction of the price of our mannequin head you can get yourself a fab alternative that is over sized and will stretch out the cap of your wig making it a slippy, slide mess
  2. For a mere fraction of the price of our clamp set you can get yourself a set that allows you to attach using the clamp for 5 minutes ….. before it breaks and snaps very possibly cutting your finger whilst you try prising it from your work surface causing damage, a painful finger and one very disgruntled hubby or hubby to be. TRUE STORY. This actually happened to me!
  3. For a mere fraction of the price of our clamp you can get yourself a totally cool set that your kiddo or yourself (If you’re clumsy like me) will accidentally drop and BREAK.

OK so I’m being a little sarcastic (I did ore warn you …) but I think you get the point. A bargain is great and I’m all for a bargain. But when quality is important it’s always best to pay a little extra for something that’s going to last you and bring as little drama as possible to your everyday life.

Sulphate free shampoo and conditioner

I swear by sulphate, protein and keratin free products for human hair wigs. Especially good quality hair such as European Remy hair. Remember that you’re not going to be washing you human hair wig in a daily or every other day basis like you would do with natural hair. I wash my wig once a week so you can imagine how long my shampoo and conditioner lasts. That is, of course, as long as I hide them from husband who likes to lather up his locks twice a day.

Sectioning clips

The last essential item on my list. Good old Sectioning clips. Use these little gems to section off hair when your blow drying your human hair wig out.

Tip! 

To create the perfect straight / wavy / curly blow dry just secure your human hair wig onto a Mannequin Head and work in small sections starting from the nape and working your way up. Remember to wait until the hair is 70% – 80% rough dried! Blow drying wet hair with a round brush is just a waste of your time and energy. Human hair won’t start to hold a style until it’s dry (or almost dry), heated and then allowed to cool for the style to set.
