Hair Care FAQs

At Southern Swank we understand understand the importance of educating our clients and making sure you understand how to care for you hair. Here are a few frequently asked questions.

How Often Should I Cut My Hair?

Really it just depends on...

Really, it just depends on how fast your hair grows and the condition of your hair, but every 4-6 weeks is standard.

With Extensions, How Many Times A Day Should I Brush My Hair?

Brush Your Hair 2 - 3 Times A Day

Especially before showering or wetting the hair. Brush gently paying particular attention to the bonds.

I Have Extensions and Have Been Invited To The Beach. What Should Do?

Avoid Salty or Chlorinated Water

These elements can harm your extensions just like your own hair. We recommend not getting your hair wet at all, and safely working on a great tan!

With Extensions, What Shampoo Will Help Keep Them Looking Their Best?

Use Sulfate Free Shampoos

We recommend professional, salon quality products. Sulfates will dry extensions out and may also affect the bonds

Don’t Wash Your Hair Too Much

Use our Dry Spray Shampoo between washings. Hard or mineral intense water may be harmful to bonds
