The way that hair extensions are applied is very important. It does not hurt! There is a track made with your own hair by creating a same braid.

These tracks are done in the middle of the scalp where no one will be able to see them
However you point out that Great Lengths's extensions are human hair 100% natural. You must thus regard them as your own hair and maintain them everyday the same manner. For that, allow us to propose some councils to you so that your hairstyle brings the maximum of satisfaction to you.
How to wash them ?
You should always wash, condition and moisturize your hair, including your human hair extension every 2 to 3 days. Your hair extensions will not receive the natural scalp oils so you will need to add moisturizing to your routine. If you do not remember to moisturize your hair extensions, they will become brittle which can cause them to break easily, leaving you with ratty and split ends
Wash your hair carefully by always holding your head behind. Wash the scalp and the points of fixing of the root towards the points but never in opposite direction. Rub with delicacy in order to avoid any mixing up between the root and the point of fixing. Rinse your hair behind by always keeping the head. Wash them at least once per week and every three days if you have fatty hair.
How to dry them ?
Remember, hair extensions will not grow back! If you get them too hot with the blow dryer, curling iron, etc., you can burn the hair and damage your beautiful hair extensions and this will not help with any wedding hairstyles or prom hairstyles you had planned
Dry your wet hair with a terry towel, and place them in position of brushing. Use preferably a brush Great Lengths (Brush punt). Then dry by holding the hair drier with a distance of at least 10 cm of your scalp and points of fixing.
How to brush brush them or comb them ?
Pass your fingers between the scalp and the points of fixing so as to separate the hair on the level well from the root, and then from the points of fixing to the points. For brushing, maintain your hair with semi-length with the hand then brush quietly while starting with bottom. You can also use a large comb starting from the semi-length to the points.
And to sleep ?
Brush your hair last once, before going to lay down you. Your extensions will be quite separate and you will avoid any friction thus and risks mixing up close to the scalp. You can also attach you the hair so that those are not gotten mixed up while you sleep.
Permanent and color ?
For the safety of your extensions and their maintenance, all work of colouring, permanent etc... must be carried out in a salon approved Great Lengths where the hairdressers will employ adequate products.
Wich is the lifetime of the extensions?
Plan to visit your hair stylist in around 6 to 8 weeks. They will have to remove the wefts and check the hair extensions for any build up from the shampoo or other products you have used.
A 4 months minimum and more if the quality of your hair allows it and the maintenance which is carried to them. Your hair does not suffer any damage when you remove the extensions..
The price ?
The extensions Great Lengths are a personalized service and not a standard service. For each person it is important to know the desired final hairstyle, the length (20 cm to 60 cm), the desired color, the quantity, texture (smooth, light loops, curling, etc.)For this reason the price cannot be given without diagnosis.
