Thanks to all for the useful input. I'll give it a try soon. I think that streamers would be the obvious first choice.
As I live in SE Asia, I think that there could be a difference in performance between my hair and, say, my wife's hair. Asian hairs are basically round (when cut, looking at the end), while caucasian hairs tend to be oval. Black folk's hair is flat. This seems to me to that it would offer different action.
Hmm, I didn't know about the attractants in female hair Eric... does that apply to female dog hair as well?
