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 ā€œZā€ 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. 

  • Rinse completely


  • 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.

  • 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.
