Benefits & FAQ
In a world of consumerism, it can be confusing to choose the right products for your hair. We get it and we've been there too! Our Silk Barbers team is determined to share our expertise to navigate you through the nasties to find what's better for your hair needs and overall health.
WHY WE CARE
Most cheap mass-produced hair products are tainted with poor ingredients that could lead to irritable scalp. The cheapest shampoos are mostly just detergents that remove the oil from your hair, and some pharmacy brands have been reported to be harmful to users. This is because many of these products have been 'dumbed down' for retailers to sell without the need to provide professional consultations.
"STYLE IS LOVE KINDNESS"
We did our homework and strived to source the best salon-quality products in Australia. Our chosen formulas include additional ingredients that make your hair feel nicer and easier to manage after treatment. Our barbers and hairstylists also provide professional consultations to help you find the right products and haircare routine for your individual needs. Although it may be cheaper to pick a shampoo off the supermarket shelf, salon-quality products are likely worth the effort to save your hair in the long run.

Are Silk Barbers products good for curly hair? Yes! We are proud to offer silicone-free and Curly Girl Approved shampoos and conditioners, which are ideal for curly hair! Thick silicones, which are often found in shampoos and conditioners, can build up along the hair cuticle over time like a film. You may find your hair feeling weighed down looking dull because the silicone residue attracts dirt and debris. This is especially bad for curls, as silicone can build up faster and is harder to wash out of this hair type. It's not easy to find silicone-free hair products in stores these days, but Silk Barbers is excited to come to your rescue!
Are Silk Barbers products Vegan? Almost all of our products are 100% Vegan except our Clay product which uses beeswax. Our product team has experimented with 100% plant-derived formulas for styling clay; however, trials have yet to meet our high expectations for quality as the beeswax ingredient is our current only known solution to achieving long-lasting, hydrating, and non-flaking results.
Are Silk Barbers products paraben and sulphate free? Our products have been tirelessly formulated and developed to ensure that both of these additives are not used in any of our product ranges (with the exception of Sea Salt Spray, as 'salt' is obviously a natural sulphate). Better for the environment, better for your hair.
What is the safe lifespan of Silk Barbers haircare products? We use either no preservatives or natural preservatives in most products. We recommend using within 12 months of opening. Unopened shelf life in a normal cool environment is 3 years from the date of invoice.
How do Silk Barbers products ensure sustainability to the environment? Our team at Silk Barbers are aware of our obligations to the environment. For this reason, we are always striving to source the most sustainable products that we can offer. Our bottles and disc caps are 100% recyclable, and our labels are produced with chemically safe inks and adhesives. The formulas for all products adhere to strict Australian regulations, set by the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) governing body.
Where are Silk Barbers products made? Silk Barbers products are formulated, bottled, and produced on the beautiful iconic Queensland Sunshine Coast, Australia.
