AT HOME CARE

Do NOT wash hair for at least 24 hours to allow you newly applied extensions to adhere completely.

BRUSHING

  • Use a boar bristle or wet brush daily to remove any knots or 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.

WASHING

  • Brush extensions thoroughly before washing to remove 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.
  • Avoid washing in overly warm water.  The cooler temperature the less residue will be left during maintenance.

SHAMPOO

  • Use a sulfate-free and paraben-free shampoo.
  • Begin at the scalp and massage shampoo into hair using s “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.  If you used the ponytail method to section hair, rinse one at a time.  Follow up with a final rinse.

CONDITION

  • Use a sulfate-free and paraben-free conditioner.
  • Apply conditioner from mid-shaft down to the tips of your hair and leave on for 2-3 minutes.  NOTE: Adding conditioner at or near the point of attachment may lead to sliding out.
  • Rinse completely.

DRYING

  • Towel or air dry your hair as much as possible before using a 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.

STYLING TOOLS

  • 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-450F 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.

PRODUCTS

  • 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.

SWIMMING

  • Before swimming, wet your hair with fresh tap water and apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner to the ends.
  • Tie in a loose ponytail or braid.
  • Once you are finished swimming, rinse the extensions with fresh water and spray with leave-in conditioner.

SLEEPING

  • 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.

COLORING

  • DO NOT ATTEMPT TO COLOR YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS AT HOME.  Please consult your certified BELLAMI Stylist for all color service inquiries.

SUNSCREEN

  • Avoid use of chemical based sunscreens as this can discolor the hair.  Please use mineral based sunscreens only.
