Hair extension process : Hair depigmentation and pigmentation
  • Hair Depigmentation

    Hair washing in oxidant solutions to remove the initial colour is done through several washes that can last up to 20 days, depending upon the amount of natural pigment needed to be extracted.

    In order to prevent hair damage only natural pigments can be removed, contrary to pigments from treated hair which cannot be extracted.

    A special technology has been developed to discard chemically treated hair and finally guarantee the distinctive quality of Great Lengths.

  • Hair Pigmentation

    Bunches of hair are submerged into a solution with controlled temperature and PH value.

    Pigments are subsequently added to the solution in order to tone the hair colour up to the desired shade. Great Lengths coloring products are extremely delicate and derived from the most precious yarn of all: cashmere.

    Shade perfection is measured and ensured in laboratory using a colour spectrophotometer.

  • Hair Blending

    Strands of hair are carefully hand-blended in order to create the most natural possible colour. Subsequently, many different shades are added, to increase colour depth and mimic the natural appearance of human hair.

    Our customers place Great Lengths at the top of the luxury hair segment thanks to the exclusivity of the hand-blending procedure, that enables us to obtain the richest colour range of over 90 shades.
