AFTERCARE GUIDELINES

Great Lengths
Hair Extensions
are very easy to maintain!

 

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.

General maintenance and aftercare guidelines:

Washing your hair

  • 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

 

Drying your hair

  • 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

Brushing your hair

  • 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.

Styling your hair

  • 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

Extension Maintenance

 

  • 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.
