Must-Have Hair Replacement Product Checklist
Ok, so once you feel like you've mastered the basics of hair system products. And as you wear hair for awhile, you'll run into common hair system problems--dryness, tangling and oxidation chief among them--that all hair wearers face at some point. Below you'll find some hair-saving and hair-maintaining product essentials:
Eight Products You Should Have in Your Hair System Toolbox
Any type of conditioning is beneficial to your hair system, but leave-in conditioners for hairpieces are ideal because they not only keep hair feeling silky, but many (like Nearly Natural Moisture Mist) also contain sunscreen protection that helps fight hairpiece color fading (oxidation).
Hair System/Wig Block
Heads and half-caps, wig blocks and stands are perfect for wig and hairpiece storage/protection and off-of-head styling. T-pins are an ideal companion product because they hold your hairpiece securely in place when styling and storing on a Styrofoam head or wig block.
What's not on the list?
Ok, so here's our big "duh" list of products we didn't include on our must-have list.

We figure most hair wears will already have these common (yet still important) items listed above. For more Product 101 goodness, checkout the six basic categories of hair replacement products.
We wouldn't call this a definitive, "be-all-to-end-all" list of products for every single hair-wearer on the face of the planet. Still, it's pretty darn close. Just consider this our, "If I was stranded on an island, I'd want to have these things with me..." kind of list. Really useful products to keep your hair system looking its best for as long as possible.
But everyone is different. Some happy hair-wearers use less products. Other use way more. So it's really up to you to experiment and figure out the perfect products scheme for your noggin.
