Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use styling tools on my hair extensions?
Yes you can! We always recommend applying heat protectant spray onto the hair first, and then brushing through for even distribution. You would never put your hand in an oven without an oven mitt, so you never want to put your hair through that same trauma. Protecting your luscious locks is a top priority to ensure maximum longevity to the hair extensions.
Can I shampoo my hair extensions?
Absolutely, try staying away from shampoos with sulfate in them and use hydrating conditioners! Leave-in conditioners and heat protectants will also help prolong your hair extension lifespan.
How often do I shampoo my hair extensions?
ONLY shampoo your hair extensions when they look like they absolutely need it! As they are not attached to your scalp, they don't receive the natural oils as our own hair does! So there is no need to wash them as often as you wash your own hair. If you’re someone that is used to shampooing everyday, check into some Dry Shampoo- it will become your best friend!
How long does the actual hair typically last before I should invest in new hair?
The lifespan of hair extensions is anywhere from 3 - 6 months, depending on their usage and how they are cared for and maintained at home.
My hair extensions are shedding, what do I do?
Some shedding is normal within the first couple wears, just like your own hair! But if you feel your hair extensions are shedding excessively, please feel free to contact us.
How long does my hair have to be to wear hair extensions?
We recommend 6 inches minimal to ensure a seamless blend is able to be created between the natural hair, and extension hair. But if your hair happens to be shorter and you would like to give it a try, we would still love to consult with you on what extension options we may be able to create for your hair!
What happens if I schedule a touch up extension appointment later than the recommended time frame?
To ensure the hair extensions are kept to the highest of quality, should you surpass your recommended touch up time frame, your Bellami Hair Extension Professional may have to reinstall your extensions, rather than just moving them up. Doing so will involve removal of all hair extensions, with reapplication of the extensions to follow. Depending on what type of condition of the hair extensions are in, new hair may be needed to continue extension applications. This is only to ensure the highly quality of service and care to both your natural hair and hair extensions. Pricing for extended touch up visits, removal, reintilation, additional hair, etc. will vary depending on the condition of the natural hair and hair extensions. Please note that should you surpass the recommended time frame to have your hair extensions removed, an increased price may also apply, as this will require more product, supplies and time for proper removal.
