Once your extensions have been applied, your stylist will instruct you on how to maintain and care for them, providing a Maintenance Aftercare guide for your reference. To help further ensure your extensions look fantastic for as long as possible, we have developed a range of products specially designed to be used with Great Lengths extensions. These products are available through your certified Salon or Stylist.
Don't shampoo your hair for at least 48 hours after your extensions have been applied. This allows the attachment site to set
Use Great Lengths aftercare products to maximize potential wear and protect attachment site
Lather gently from roots to tips, don't use a rough scrubbing motion
When rinsing, tilt your head slightly back and let the water fall through the length, this prevents knotting
Finish by applying a hair mask or conditioner after every wash
Begin by blotting hair with a towel to remove excess water
Brush or use a wide-tooth comb to gently remove any tangles
If your hair is lacking moisture, spritz with Great Lengths Anti-Tap Water for extra nourishment
Always use one of the Great Lengths brushes which are specifically designed to protect the hair extensions
If you suffer from hair static, try using a wide-tooth comb, carefully working through the hair from roots to tips
Using a Great Lengths Paddle Brush, sweep all hair to one side, holding hair in place at the nape of the neck, brush through the length
Remember not to be too rough when brushing your hair as this may damage the attachment site
When backcombing, take care to only do so below the bond attachment to prevent knotting.
Be sure to use sulfate-free styling products. All of the products in the Great Lengths Aftercare range are sulfate-free.
If you have used a lot of product, spritz hair with our Anti-Tap Water after your next wash to clear any residue
If you use a hair oil, be sure to only apply through the length of the hair, avoiding contact with the bond
Tame fly-aways or fight static with Great Lengths Serum Hair Fluid. Work through the length of the hair for a smooth finish
In order to extend the life of your GL installation always apply Great Lengths Anti-Tap water to wet hair, and tie hair away from face prior to swimming, exercising, using a sauna or any activity that creates moisture.
Always pull Great Lengths extensions into a soft held ponytail or loose braid while sleeping or during any activity that has your hair blowing in the wind.
