    Default Which head cement?

    Hi all,

    Just getting to the end of my Sally Hansenīs and was wondering what you are all using before I order some more ( you can't get it here in Austria). Anything better? If you are using something else, what do you use for a dispenser? Are the shop-bought head cement dispensers worth the money?

    Thanks in advance for any replies,

    Cheers,

    Damian F

    I bought a 6 pack of S/H a year or more back, from ebay it should see me out, at the rate I use it a.t.m. was very cheap compared to buying one-off's in the local chemist or supermarket. Cellire penetrates further into the head though but both need at least 2 coats for a good finish. So if you have a mate or 2, it would pay to split a pack.

    "Shop bought head varnish dispensers" absolutly not, total waste of money & space + the ones I've seen in use including Dyna-Kings version don't seal properly & the contents clog up as the varnish evaporates.
