When I set up my Instagram account @her_hair_my_head I wanted to share my story and help other women with hair loss. One element of this is making and sharing honest reviews of different toppers and wigs. I have reviewed quite a few pieces over the past few years and I hope that you find them useful and informative. I pride myself in talking about the pros and the cons of pieces – while they have been gifted to me in return for a review, I am not trying to sell them on behalf of the brand and do not get a commission if you choose to buy them after watching my videos.

So why am I sharing reviews of other brands?

Part of the reason I set up my own business selling hair was because there are only limited options for women in the UK who want to buy human hair. However, there are some fabulous brands both in the UK and further afield. So I want to share my reviews of these pieces to help you to make an informed decision when buying hair. Enjoy!
