Brushing is very important. Brush your hair before and after washing. Use wide-toothed comb or a boar bristle brush starting at the ends and work your way up. Hold your hair in a low ponytail or hold hair at the bonds while brushing out the ends to prevent excessive pulling. Brush in sections to make sure your hair is brushed all the way up to the attachment area. Do not snag the beads/wefts/bonds which can cause damage to your natural hair. Failure to section and brush out thoroughly can lead to matting near the root. Brush hair gently to avoid snapping the ends, which can cause the hair to shed prematurely from the beads/wefts/bonds. Light shedding is normal.
Wash hair every 2 to 3 days. The longer you can go between washes the longer your hair will last. Thoroughly wet hair with warm water and gently run a mild shampoo and conditioner down extensions, start from the roots and end at the tips. We recommend sulfate-free shampoo or Bohyme® Rejuvenating Shampoo. Avoid rubbing hair vigorously to avoid unnecessary tangling. Rinse and apply conditioner (near the tips), allow conditioner to sit for 5 minutes before rinsing. Gently towel dry hair then spray leave-in conditioner and brush.
Use dry shampoo in between wet washing to prevent oil build up which can cause premature slippage of tape-in extensions. Use a leave in conditioner daily (Bohyme® Leave-in Hair Reconstructor) to help detangle and hydrate extensions.
Your extensions will react to heat just like your own natural hair. You may use all the common tools such as flat irons, curling irons, blow dryer for styling, apply heat protectant before styling. Keep irons or blow dryers away from bead/tape/bond areas, use lower settings on any heat appliances. Avoid excessive heat which can dry out and/or damage the hair. When using conditioners, waxes, gels, serums or oils, avoid contact with the bond areas and use only from mid-length to the ends of extensions. Avoid finishing products that contains alcohol.
We do not recommend the use of any dye, toner, bleach, perm, keratin, or straightening solutions, which can damage hair.
Keep hair pulled back in a low ponytail during sports and water activities. Do not wear your hair in a bun or braid while swimming, which can lead to knotting. Before entering the pool or ocean immerse your hair in fresh water so it is less likely to fill with salt or chlorine water which can dry out the hair. After getting out of the water spray leave-in conditioner, brush hair out thoroughly and allow hair to air dry.
When sleeping, a satin pillow case will help prevent tangling, leave your hair smoother and your complexion softer. Never sleep with wet hair and never let dry without brushing.
