5 essential items that every alternative hair wearer should own ...

What's in your essentials kit when it comes to alternative human hair?

I wanted to share with you today my TOP 5 items that I'd recommend every alternative human hair wearer should own.


Tangle Tease
Sulphate free shampoo and conditioner 
A round brush
Sectioning clips 

Tangle Tease Brush

This one really is an essentail for both human hair and synthetic wigs! This fabulous brush keeps the hair smooth and silky without the risk of damaging the hair / fibre and base of your wig. Available from supermarkets and Boots chemist and also from us here at Aspire.

Follea Care Head and Clamp Set

'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 the Follea Care head set 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 a Follea care head 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 a Follea care head set 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 free products for human hair wigs. Especially good quality hair such as European Remy hair. These products are more readily available than you may realise. Boots sell a fab range called 97% Naked for around £4.50 which won't break the bank. Also 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 Follea Gripper wig once a week so you can imagine how long my shampoo and conditioner lasts. That is, of course, as ling as I hide them from my six year old who is currently going through a 'option' making phase at every bath / shower time. 

It's no funny for mummy to grab a hold of my toothbrush before bed and start brushing my teeth only to realise that said six year old has been using MY purple toothbrush as a magical stirring stick for her bath potion!!!! Even worse was the fact that shed used daddies lynx shower gel as the main ingredient!!! Bloody kids ...... 

Good quality round brush

Ahhhhhh the dreaded round brush. Did anyone else 'borrow' their mums round brush as a kid and get it stuck in their hair? Perhaps it was just me who got myself into that tricky situation! A little education in using a round brush never hurts. Especially if your going to be using it on your beloved human hair wig or (gasp!) Follea hair wig. Never fear though as I've created a short video demo on how you can SAFELY use a round brush and popped it right here for you :-) 
The round brush is a fabulous tool and a true essential. Blow drying straight, wavy and even creating curls in your human hair wig is all possible with your trusty round brush. 

You can pick one up for around £4.99 from a beauty supply shop or boots / Primark / Tesco etc. you can pick them up pretty much anywhere these days. 

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. 


To create the perfect straight / wavy / curly blow dry just secure your human hair wig onto a Follea care head and work in small sections starting from the nape and working your way up. Remember to wait until the hair is 70% - 80% dry before you start to blow dry! 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. 



So there are my 5 essential items that I think every human hair wig wearer should invest in.
