Before you wash, be sure to carefully detangle the hair using a wide tooth comb.
Lightly brush through and gently remove any tangles using a wide tooth comb/brush.
Do not pull or drag the fibre ….be gentle!
Apply conditioner directly to your wig, stroking downwards from roots to ends.
Leave in 4–5 minutes.
Rinse by immersing wig once more in fresh cold water.
Fill a bowl with COLD water (never hot, as heat damages fibres).
Mix a capful of shampoo into the water.
Immerse your wig and allow it to soak for few minutes.
5. Towel dry
Place the wig between a folded towel and pat dry.
Never squeeze, rub or wring your wig while drying.
Remove from towel.
Immerse your wig in a fresh bowl of cold water to remove shampoo.
Do NOT squeeze or wring your wig.
6. Style and hair dry
Gently shake the wig to regain its style. Alternatively, lightly style it with a wig comb or your fingers.
Place wig on a folding wig stand or over the mouth of a large jar or vase to dry naturally. Never use a hair dryer, as heat damages synthetic fibres.

The hair consultants were sensitive and kind, dealing with me and also I notice the other staff members were extremely polite and smiling at me when I was in the main room looking at wigs or trying them on. The experience could have been horrific, but instead, it was supportive and gentle."read less

Clearly it was meant to be that I get this one - it is exactly what I was after! Beautiful length, the lace is lovely, the fit is just right, the colour is beautiful… I am so happy with her! Thank you so much for your help and with getting her in for me. This has sold me on Ellen Wille now, I hope to buy more in the future!

I was at a really low point when I came to see you that day, and when I left – well I felt closer to the old me than I ever have in the past month! You were so caring, understanding and genuine you made, have made the whole process so much more bearable. I also really appreciated you getting on the phone to my Dr and organising the medical grant too, you just make the process that much easier and for that I am so grateful.
I’m really enjoying playing with my wig – I haven’t thought of a name for her yet! Maybe Gerty!!
I went to see Trish, my hairdresser and she too was amazing – was so nice to talk to someone who’s been through it and come out the other side. She styled my hairpiece for me, and showed me way’s to wear it up and down and well, the whole process has helped me find confidence again and for once actually focus on something other than hair loss! You two are an amazing team.
I’m still losing my hair but now like you say, I have options if that does happen, and it will be another lovely visit to you and Trish if that does happen. But for now I’m enjoying the moment and loving being able to do some of the old things I used to do – and not feel self-conscience.
I even trialled the hairpiece at a workout at the gym today, and it all held together beautifully. In fact I think the hairpiece is actually nicer than my original hair! Thanks again Leigh, you have really made a difference.read less

My neighbour visited me that night and straight away said how good and happy I looked. Today I wore my wig to work and everyone commented on how lovely my hair looked and that I looked years younger. Perhaps this was due to the fact that I had a big smile on my face as I was feeling happy and confident in myself.read less

I couriered it off to her the following Monday and she received it on the Friday, just as her hair started to come out in clumps, so she shaved it all off. She is thrilled with it, it suited her perfectly and is just like her own hair. Thanks so much for all the help you gave me on choosing this - it's done wonders for her morale and I appreciate that you let me try on to find the perfect one! Thanksread less

I’m almost 40 and I’ve had alopecia in all its forms on and off since I was 8 years old. When I lost my own hair again at age 25 after having kept it for most of my teenage years, I was distraught. I will never forget the day I met Leigh. She turned up at my house with literally bags of the most beautiful Ellen Wille and Raquel Welch human hair wigs and such a positive ‘let’s fix this’ attitude; within the space of an hour I had about five new heads of hair, my self-esteem fully restored and I felt like a million dollars. Leigh has always been able to help me identify styles and colours that really suit me – and that I would never have even considered on my own. Ironically, I think I’ve always been far more stylish in my wigs than I could ever have been with my own hair; several times over the years I have been asked who my hairdresser is! I was once asked to be a hair model because the wig I was wearing looked so great!
Leigh is so warm, helpful, knowledgeable and honest – she’ll never let you walk away with hair that doesn’t suit you. She also helped me look and feel brilliant on my wedding day – I had the easiest hair appointment a bride could have – just pop it on and look fabulous; I think I spent five minutes on my hair! Leigh is one of the most incredible ladies I have ever had the privilege of meeting. I honestly do not know what I would have done without her – I would recommend her to anyone.read less
