*Great Lengths are durable hair extensions which withstand salt water/chlorine, strain of exercise, and more. Still, they must be cared for to maintain their lifespan. Regular two month check up and use of the Great Lengths care line are recommended.*


  • Do not shampoo your hair for 48 hours after your extension service, including initial and maintenance services. This will give enough time for the bonds to settle and ensure that your extensions will not slide out through premature contact with cleansing chemicals.

  • Prior to bed, pull your hair back into a soft ponytail to prevent tangling while sleeping. Use a Silk Pillowcase to allow your hair to move freely while you sleep.

  • Expect to see small quantities of naturally released hair trapped in the bonds after some time. This is quite normal and should not be interpreted as hairs being pulled out of the scalp by the extensions themselves. These ends can be cut by your stylist to minimize tangling close to the bonds.

  • Return to your salon two weeks after your extensions have been applied for a check-up appointment. It may be necessary to replace a few strands if they have not settled correctly.

  • If you experience bond slippage or any discomfort, contact us to determine the cause and remedy the situation.


  • Do not use products that contain sulphur, such as dandruff shampoos. Use the recommended haircare products that are especially designed to improve the condition of your hair extensions.

  • When showering, tilt your head back and cleanse from the top of the head downward. Avoid facing your head downward. Condition using the appropriate conditioner and de-tangle only from midstrand to end, avoiding the scalp area.


  • Curling irons and hot rollers may be used on your hair extensions, but keep them at least 3cm to 4cm away from the hair bonds.

  • Brush your hair twice a day using a the recommended brush which is specifically designed for your hair extensions. Do not use hard brush strokes. Separate your applied strands using your fingers and slowly brush close to the scalp. This will avoid matting in this area. Do not use a hard bristled brush. This may cause the extension strands to slip out.

  • Use a wide toothed comb to gently remove tangles from mid-strands to hair ends. Do not use a comb near the scalp area and the bonds / tapes.


  • Activities that result in a constant, damp environment, especially swimming in sea water and chlorine, may lessen the longevity of your  hair extensions. Prior to swimming, wet the hair completely to prevent chlorine and salt water sticking to your hair. Immediately after swimming, apply the Great Lengths Anti-Tap Water remedy to eliminate damage from alkalinity in water and dry the base area as prescribed above.
