AT HOME CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Do NOT wash hair for at least 24 hours to allow your newly applied extensions to adhere completely.
Use a Boar bristle brush or wet brush to remove any knots and tangles.
Gather the hair into a ponytail and securely hold close to the scalp. Begin brushing from the ends, carefully working your way up toward the scalp.
Brushing your hair before it gets wet will keep the hair from tangling while washing.
Use the ponytail method to section hair, rinse one at a time. Follow up with a final rinse.
Brush extensions thoroughly before washing to remove any tangles.
Now that your hair is thicker, you may decide to divide the hair into two sections on either side of the head to wash or multiple ponytails and wash section-by-section.
Use a sulfate free and paraben free shampoo
Begin at the scalp and massage shampoo into hair using a “Z” formation. Do not use a circular motion or flip head upside down as this causes tangles.
Part hair and rinse all the way to the scalp.
Use a sulfate free and paraben free conditioner.
Apply conditioner from mid-shaft down to the tip-off your hair and leave on from 2-3 minutes Note: Adding conditioner at or near the point of attachment may lead to tapes sliding out.
Towel or air dry your hair as much as possible before using the blow dryer.
The use of leave-in conditioners, heat protectants, as well as treatment oils from mid-shaft to ends is recommended to protect your extensions.
Using a blow dryer, rough dry the hair.
Starting at the ends and working your way up toward the scalp, round brush the hair.
BELLAMI Hair Extensions are safe to use with thermal tools like curling wands, flat irons etc.
Temperature setting depends on your natural hair. You may use between 270F-400 F on your extensions as long as proper heat protectants are applied before styling.
Keep all hot tools away from the point of attachment to ensure extensions do not melt or fuse together.
Use professional grade products recommended by your stylist to maintain the health of your natural hair and extensions.
Avoid alcohol-based products close to the point of attachment as it may compromise the bonding agent and cause sliding.
Before swimming, wet your hair with fresh tap water and apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner to the ends.
Tie in loose ponytail or braid.
Once you are finished swimming, rinse the extensions with fresh water and spray with leave-in conditioner.
Do NOT attempt to color your extensions at home.
Brush hair gently and loosely braid before sleeping.
Do not go to bed with wet hair as it can cause tangling close to the scalp. If this occurs, schedule an appointment with your stylist to remove immediately.
