FAQ'S HAIR EXTENSIONS
Embarking on your hair extension journey with Swank Hair Extensions means embracing both a fabulous look and a commitment to care. Whether you're a first-time user or an experienced extension enthusiast, we're here to guide you. Here are answers to some common questions to help you maintain your gorgeous extensions.
Can I exercise with my hair extensions?
Absolutely! When exercising, tie your hair in a ponytail or plait to avoid tangles. Avoid wearing it in a messy bun. Remember to brush thoroughly before and after your activities and apply a leave-in conditioner to keep your extensions in top shape.
Can I use heat styling on my hair extensions?
Yes, you can! Heated styling tools like dryers, curlers, and straighteners are safe for human hair extensions. Treat them with the same care as your natural hair and always use a heat protection product. Be cautious to avoid applying heat directly to the extension bonds.
Can I color, tone, or bleach my hair extensions?
Swank Hair Extensions are made of 100% Remy Human Hair, allowing them to be colored. However, we advise against bleaching or lightening, as it can damage the extensions. If you wish to alter the color, start with a lighter shade and go darker to preserve their integrity. Always consult a professional hair colorist experienced in hair extensions. Test the color on a small section first, and avoid coloring near the bonds to prevent slippage.
Can I swim with my hair extensions?
Yes, swimming is fine! Before diving in, apply a leave-in conditioner and tie your hair back. After swimming, rinse with clean water, gently towel dry, and apply leave-in conditioner again. Avoid leaving your hair in a bun or plait when wet. Regular swimming may dry out your extensions, so follow up with deep conditioning treatments regularly.
How do I minimize shedding and tangling?
To reduce shedding and tangling, maintain your extensions with care. Brush them regularly with a detangling brush and use alcohol-free, sulfate-free, and paraben-free products. Avoid tangling by developing a good nighttime routine, like braiding your hair or wearing a silk cap to bed. If you're concerned about shedding, consult your hair extension specialist for advice.
How long will my extensions last?
On average, extensions can last several months. With proper care, you can move them up every 2-3 months and reuse the hair for up to a year.
Remember, the key to lasting, beautiful hair extensions is not only in the quality of the extensions themselves but also in your care routine and the expertise of your hair extension specialist. For any further questions or personalized advice, feel free to reach out to us at Swank Hair Extensions.
