Hi Barbara here, I have over 30 years experience in the hairdressing industry. I began my career in Ireland and gained vast knowledge and skills in hairdressing during my years in Australia.

Care for your hairpiece

Our wide range of hairpieces are fuss free and easily maintained in 5 simple steps.

  1. Simply brush out any knots, tangles that may be in the hairpiece.
  2. Fill a basin with tepid water and shampoo. Very gently agitate the hairpiece back and forward in the solution.
  3. Rinse clear with tepid water, (note: do not scrub hairpiece!).
  4. Pat dry, gently, with a towel to remove excess water.
  5. Place in a style usually worn, away from direct heat or electrical appliances and leave to dry.

Care for your hair and scalp

Before treatment:
Use moisturising shampoo to wash your hair and scalp. Both hair and scalp must be washed with a moisturising shampoo to help prevent drying of the scalp.

Daily treatment:
Your scalp may become tender prior to hair loss which unfortunately cannot be prevented. The scalp can also become itchy and flaky during treatment, so daily application of baby oil/olive oil should be applied going to bed and shampoo the following morning.

After treatment:
Hair can grow back rapidly. Regrowth can occur 2-3 weeks after your last treatment. Your hair can change in texture and colour. Please do not use harsh permanent colour. Bankz offer a full range of Schwarzkopf Essensity Organic Products. It is much easier on the scalp and hair.
