Here is some key information about the hair product we use for our extensions clients supplied by Great Lengths.
Great Lengths are the only extension company to obtain and process our human hair. The hair is sourced from the temples of India as part of their rituals and the revenue from the purchase of hair goes back into the community. Great Lengths hair is 100% ethical and 100% traceable.
Great Lengths extensions are applied using our specially formulated polymer bond which has a pH value of 5.5 and is kind to your hair and scalp. The bond is virtually undetectable and extremely comfortable to wear. Great Lengths is committed to ethical practices in the procurement of its hair and have introduced their own "Setting Fair Standards Criteria? outlined below:
Every strand has been donated willingly and with the full consent of the donor, who has been treated with respect and care. A fair and reasonable price is agreed for the hair and the money used to procure the hair is used solely for charitable endeavours, not for personal or individual profit.
A company representative procures the hair to cut out unreliable middlemen and ensure full and direct knowledge of the hair’s origin. The exclusive in-house production process is used from procurement of the hair to wholesale selling the extensions to ensure full traceability.
Hair extensions are a cosmetic procedure and they should be applied to healthy hair. Hair must be at least 5 - 8 cms in length to provide comfortable attachments. Some medical conditions may make a minority of clients unsuitable for extensions, which is why we offer a free, no-obligation consultation. At this stage, the client's suitability can be ascertained and the salon can be confident they can produce a high-quality result.
Great Lengths only use 100% human hair because it behaves like your own real hair. Human extensions are better because they create a more natural look and effect. This means our extensions can be styled using heated tools and straighteners, as well as being professionally coloured and permed. They are also suitable for most lifestyle activities. So there are no limits to what you can do when wearing Great Lengths extensions.
No. If hair extensions are attached by a professionally trained stylist and are properly maintained by the clients, Great Lengths extensions should not damage your hair. Our hair is 100% natural and the bond has been formulated using a special blend of polymers that replicate the molecular structure of keratin. Keratin is a protein from which natural hair is made so if your extensions are maintained in the recommended way, no problems should occur.
By following our simple maintenance programme, extensions can last up to 5 months using our Classic and Cold Fusion systems and up to 4 months with the Fast Fusion system. Using Great Lengths aftercare products will also prolong the life of extensions as they are designed to protect the hair and the bond.
Simply follow the guidelines set out on your consultation form and the advice explained to you in detail by your trained stylist.
There have been some stories in the media about the unethical practices of some hair extension manufacturers. Should I be concerned about Great Lengths? Absolutely not. Great Lengths prides itself on being 100% ethical and 100% traceable hair. We would recommend anyone interested in hair extensions to research where the hair has come from. Our hair is Indian temple hair and because we are the only extension company to process our hair, we can confidently guarantee the traceability of every strand. Please take the time to read our ethical statement on this.
There have been similar stories about damage to my hair.
Great Lengths are passionate about training their certified extensionists in the correct application so as not to pull on your hair and cause breakage.
Great Lengths salons will offer you a full consultation to discuss your hairstyle requirements. Only then will they be able to give you a price for your new look and this can be tailored to suit your budget.
Great Lengths hair extensions can last up to 5 months with the correct maintenance and care and, as they are 100% human hair extensions, they can be styled just like your own hair - so have fun and enjoy them!
This depends on how many extensions you are having and the application system being used. For example, with either the Classic or Cold Fusion system you can have half a head of extension applied in approximately 2 hours. However, with the Fast Fusion method, this can be less than an hour! Your stylist will be able to discuss this with you further at your consultation.
Because Great Lengths extensions are 100% human hair they can be treated in just the same way as your hair - straighten, curl, perm and even colour. However, we do recommend using the Great Lengths Aftercare range of products to help keep the hair in tip-top condition.
You can have as many extensions as you need to achieve the look you want - even a few simple strands can make a huge difference. Either a splash of colour or add a little more volume. The possibilities are endless...
You need to book a removal appointment with your salon who will use the specially formulated Great Lengths removal gel. When applied this gel gently breaks down the bond and with the removal tool, the extensionist can slide the bond down your hair with no damage to your hair.
Your hair will be completely undamaged by the extensions and look a little longer than you remember. Once you have experienced Great Lengths hair extensions, we are sure you will not be able to live without out them!
