Best Hairspray or Glue Spray Product
Hi, I have a synthetic wig which has been set up with curls. At the moment, the curls are being held with kirby clips so that I can take it out before the event. I know hairspray was used when the clips were put in.

Now my question is, before I take the kirby clips out, I would like to know what hairspray or glue spray products should I use in order for these curls to stay in? Are these any particular brand you would recommend that I can easily buy without ordering off the internet? I don't particularly want to use heat in the event it
melts. Heat is my absolute last resort.

I want to make sure the curls will stay in for two days without dropping out.

Thank you ^_^

Super cheap Treseme Freeze-hold hairspray is the best thing I've used yet. It really does hold anything solid.

make sure you've used some kind of heat to help set them i.e. stick a hairdryer on it for a while. The heat will help the fiber stay in the right place. And as suggested hairspray = your best friend!

(check my giselle costume to see how the heat approach can hold curls)

There is always room for cake

thank you GunstarVixen, i might try some heat but i'm still a little hesitant at using the hairdryer. Obviously at the lowest temperature possible.

Hi Miruru!

As Amy Lou suggested, I found that "Tresume Freeze Hold" is absolutely brilliant hairspray for wigs. You can pick up a massive can of it in loads of places (Tesco, Boots, Superdrug etc) and it should cost about £4.

Make sure you don't spray it super close to the wig, you want a average gap so that the spray really coves the wig evenly.

I've used the stuff loads of times and swear by it.

Thirding the TRESemmé freeze hold! That stuff is magical...

I assume that if I use this Tresseme Freeze hold, I don't need to use heat? or should I?

Whoops. Late reply! D:

I've never had to use heat on any wigs I've done so you should be fine.

I use Tresemea Extreme Hold

Its about £5-6 for a really large can ive dowsed probably 6 wigs in the stuff so far and it holds amazingly.

What i love about it other than the fact it sets like concrete is that it dries really quick making it sooo easy to get what ever style your after...

Definaitly great value for money
