Advice on Looking After Your Great Lengths At Home

Sunday, 22 March 2020 14:39

During these trying times, looking after their Great Lengths should be the last of your clients' worries. The experts at Great Lengths have put together some top tips from their education and sales team for caring for extensions at home in between  salon visits.

Complete with recommendations, these tips will ensure the right tools and products are being used in order to promote longevity and care.

Tip 1: HAIR WASHING

When wearing extensions, although 100% human hair you do need to apply a little more attention when you wash your hair. Pick a shampoo that works with your hair type, Great Lengths have the NEW Silver Shine Shampoo for blondes, a Structure Repair, Daily Moisture and Ultimate Colour shampoo that have all been specially formulated to work in harmony with your Great Lengths. Be gentle and be patient, avoid encouraging matting by lathering up your shampoo on top of your head, instead gently and slowly massage shampoo from the root to tip applying special care when you are washing near your bonds or GL Tapes. Any conditioners, ensure you don’t apply at the root/application area. Conditioners can affect the bonds or GL Tapes and cause extensions to detach prematurely. Nyree Robinson - Sales Executive

Tip 2: COLOUR MAINTENANCE

Specifically for blondes, if you’re used to popping to the salon for your regular toner make sure you invest in the Great Lengths Silver Shine Shampoo so that you can complete the process and banish those brassy tones at home. The NEW Silver Shine Shampoo can be used weekly to keep your colour looking its best and is 100% compatible with Great Lengths. For a more intense treatment you can leave the shampoo on for longer, (please seek your personal recommendation from your stylist) to remove yellow and brassy tones and replenish, uplift and bring life back to your blonde locks.  Louise Jenkins - Creative & Education Manager

Tip 3: INTENSIVE TREATMENT

This is the perfect time to dedicate yourself to some well deserved pamper time. Sometimes amongst our busy lifestyles we forget to give ourselves and our hair that extra little bit of attention but whilst you have the time, use it wisely to look after your Great Lengths. Great Lengths have a NEW High Performance Hair Mask that nourishes and moisturises your hair, it’s particularly good for those who are wearing long extensions and doesn’t take long to get to work. Apply to wet hair for 10-15 minutes for an intensive hair treatment. Louise Jenkins - Creative & Education Manager

Tip 4: BRUSHING

A question we receive a lot is how do I brush my Great Lengths? Again with our busy lifestyles we don’t always show as much attention as we should in this area, but use this time to ensure your Great Lengths are maintained and looked after well to increase longevity between your visit to salons. Use a soft bristle brush, Great Lengths offer these in many sizes to suit all hair types and sweep through the hair from root to tips ensuring you brush over the bonds. For thick and long hair, it’s recommended to separate your hair into sections and brush gradually to ensure minimal pulling on your bonds or GL Tapes. Before brushing also insure you take the time to separate your bonds one by one to ensure no matting or tangles. Nyree Robinson - Sales Executive
