Frequently Asked Questions!


Are Great Lengths hair extensions suitable for everyone?

Hair extensions are a cosmetic procedure and should only be applied to healthy hair. Hair must be at least 5cm in length to ensure comfortable, discreet attachments. There are some medical conditions that may make a minority of clients unsuitable for extensions. Suitability is discussed during a consultation – these are always free and no-obligation.

How long will my Great Lengths hair extensions last?

Great Lengths hair extensions full bonds can last up to five months if well maintained. Half bonds and micro bonds do not last as long. GL Apps tapes last about 4 weeks but can be re-used. Potential wear may be extended if specialist aftercare products are used. You can be assured that Great Lengths’ unique bonds have been scientifically proven not to cause damage to healthy hair when applied correctly and well maintained.

What will my hair be like when the hair extensions are removed?

Once you have had your extensions removed, your hair needs to be washed and conditioned to clean away any residue from the removal gel and bonds. If you have maintained your extensions well, there will be no damage, and you may find that your natural hair has grown more quickly than usual.

Can I colour my hair extensions?

Yes, as our hair is 100% human, it can be coloured. However, the bonds can’t be coloured. Your stylist will be able to advise you on what is possible and what results you can expect to achieve.

What do I need to do to look after my hair extensions?

Because all Great Lengths hair extensions are made from 100% human hair, your care routine will be very similar. The only key differences are that you may wash your hair less frequently, it must always be dried after washing, and the hair may need to be brushed more regularly. Always follow the guidelines set out by your stylist, and take a look at our expert aftercare tips to maximise potential wear. We also invite you to a free maintenance check approximately 3-4 weeks after application.

Can I swim wearing hair extensions?

Yes, you can swim and exercise with hair extensions. We just advise that you spritz hair after exercising with our Anti-Tap Water. This product is designed to restore the natural PH balance of your hair and scalp, which can be altered by sweat. In turn, this protects bonds and nourishes hair.
