 Hair products in detail

Shampoo and conditioner

There are a few ingredients in shampoos that can affect your hairpiece by excessively drying and reducing the lifespan of your system. These include sulphates, parabens, and sodium chloride. The ideal shampoo should contain moisturisers and silk proteins which are extremely hydrating. Nutrients and vitamins are vital for healthy human hair, and if your hair system is coloured you should opt for a colour-friendly shampoo that will help colours last.

Conditioners should be anti-oxidant rich to keep your hair system protected and soft. The integration of leave-in conditioners will keep your hair silky, and they often contain sunscreen protection that helps prevent colour fade. These conditioners also provide moisturiser whilst preventing sun damage, creating a shine without weighing hair down.

Lightweight hairspray

There's an assortment of lightweight hairsprays that are safe for styling human and synthetic hair replacement systems. Sprays are formulated to hold hair designs without making hair stiff or sticky. Panthenol is one ingredient added to add shine and style even in high humidity. Advanced three-way hairsprays have the added bonus of a spray pattern that can be selected with the amount of hold required.

Finishing sprays offer perfect and flexible hold. You simply spray from a distance and then work your hair into the required style. If you want a stronger hold, apply for a second time.

Lightweight hair gel

A lightweight hair gel is ideal for every style as it dries quickly to save time. Specially formulated styling products mean that you only need to use a small amount to work through wet or dry hair to separate layers and add depth to your desired style.

Hair pomade

Hair pomade is similar to hair wax but it has a specific function which is to add shine to your hair. You’ll be able to find oil-based or water-based brands that help hold your hair in certain styles whilst protecting against dehydration and without clogging human hair follicles.

Pomade isn’t a strong as hair gel which makes it more pliable during the day, it simply adds volume and hold whilst maintaining flexibility.

Hair replacement system maintenance

By taking proper care of your hair replacement system you’ll be able to keep it looking natural and make it last longer. Look at some helpful tips:

  • Always use cool or lukewarm water to shampoo and condition your hair as hot water takes out waves and curls.
  • Use a wide-toothed comb or cushion brush whilst your hair system is dry. Brushing when wet can cause the hair to break or stretch.
  • Secure your hair system with tapes or adhesives that are specially designed for long-term bonds and are able to withstand stress as you sleep.
