What should I do with my hair when going to bed at night?
You'll need to purchase a silk/satin scarf to tie your hair down. Prior to wrapping your hair up for protection, you'll need to gently comb out all knots from your tresses in order to do an up-do bun or big twists/braids. Once you apply any flexi rods or protective styling to your extensions, you may tuck away your hair under your silk scarf and enjoy your night's rest.
What kind of styling tools go hand in hand with my extensions?
When brushing or combing your hair, use wide teeth combs to prevent any shedding or damage to your hair strands. In regards to styling tools that applies heat, use low-medium temperature to prevent any heat damage.
What does the word "virgin" mean when referring to Swank'dTresses?
Your hair is "virgin" meaning your extensions are unprocessed, allowing you to care for your tresses as if they no different from your natural hair such as adding heat or even color.
Will I experience any shedding with Swank'dTresses?
Like your own hair, you will definitely experience some shedding but minimal (2-3 hair strands). To prevent such a thing, you may seal your wefts with adhesive, sew around your tracks (not through the wefts), detangle on a regular basis and try not to cut your tracks unless needed (use the fold over method).
