What is Remy hair?

“Remy” hair is hair in which all the cuticles are running in the same direction from root to tip. All Great Lengths extensions are made using only 100% Remy human hair. There are benefits to using Remy hair; it is easier to maintain, less likely to extremely durable and flexible, no tangling or matting and it blends well with the client’s natural hair.

Hair must be at least 10 cm or 4” in length to ensure comfortable, discreet attachments.

What is the difference between 20” and 26” extensions?

The major difference between our 20” and 26” extensions is length. Our 26” are 6” longer than our 20” extensions. In addition, our 26” extension pieces weigh 1 gram each whereas our 20” extension pieces weight 0.8 grams. If you are new to extensions, we recommend starting off with our 20” lines.

CARE & STYLING

How do I take care of my hair extensions?

We often tell people to treat their hair extensions as they would their natural hair and to not overthink it. The quality of our European hair and way we install the extensions makes them very manageable, however there are a few things to keep in mind.

1.    Do Not Sleep with your Hair Extensions Wet
Whatever you do, just avoid going to sleep with your hair wet. Your hair is weakest when wet therefore when you go to bed, your roots can become intertwined and will dry that way. over time this will cause matting as your bonds will become tangled. This means you and your technician will spend more time at your maintenance appointment de-tangling. Keep in mind most technicians charge by the hour too.

2.    Avoid Conditioner on the Bonds and Scalp
You're allowed to wash your hair as normal, however be cautious of how much conditioner you are using. Try to condition from the mid lengths to ends avoiding the bonds and scalp. Conditioner breaks down faster and causes build up on the bonds. This results in the extensions falling out as they have been lubricated by the conditioner.

3.    Brush Gently
Avoid brushing from the scalp and yanking downwards. It causes stress on the bonds and you risk pulling out the extension. Rather, brush your hair in sections, starting from the ends and moving upwards. When brushing at the scalp, try your best to hold the bonds as you brush. Soft bristle brushes or loop brushes are the best for your hair as they don’t pull on your natural hair. Wide tooth combs can be used when the hair is wet, Hard plastic brushes should be avoided.

4.    Styling Hair Extensions
You can allow your hair to air dry or blow dry it. Remember to not go to bed with your hair wet if you choose to air dry. You may heat style your hair as normal, just avoid the bonds with extreme heat. If you heat-style your extensions regularly make sure to use a heat protectant. This will improve the longevity of the hair. A smoothing oil on the ends will ensure the extensions remain soft. You may also use hair spray, leave in conditioner, dry shampoo, etc.

 

How can I keep my hair hydrated and manageable all day?

Your hair extensions differ from your natural hair as they don't have a hydration source. Therefore, it is important to keep your extensions hydrated. You can do this by using a leave-in conditioner and/or a hair mask, just remember to avoid the bond area.

 

What products should I use on my hair?

Aim for sulfate and oil-free products. Sulfates contain chemicals that can dry out the hair. Oily products can cause the bonds of the extensions to become slippery and fall out quicker. These brands are great recommendations:

CLEANSE

                    Kerastase
                    Joico
                    Olaplex                  

TONE

Milk_Shake
Fanola
Living Proof

STYLE

OUAI
Chi
Amika

 

How often should I wash my hair?

As a rule, the fewer times you wash, the longer the extensions will last. 1-2 washes a week is ideal.  Dry shampoo is recommended to keep oil under control. If washing frequently be sure to use a mild or sulfate-free shampoo to prevent hair from drying out. If you use purple shampoo DO NOT get it on the bonds, as it can cause the bonds to breakdown.
