Do not shampoo for two days. Always wash your hair with your head back and not tilted forward. Never dry with a scrubbing action, instead wrap with a towel to absorb water. Always dry bonds to prevent breakdown.
Brush Great Lengths three times a day with the recommended Great Lengths brush from the ends up. Always pull Great Lengths into a soft scrunchy while sleeping to prevent tangling.
Return to the salon in 3-4 weeks for a checkup service.
At least 2 detangling services between your extension appointments is highly recommended. This will help with removal and proper upkeep of your extensions. This service can be booked with any trained stylist and comes with a blowout service as well. Pricing for extension detangling starts at $55.
Curling irons, flat irons and hot rollers may be used, but must be kept an adequate distance from the Great Lengths bonds.
Activities taking place in a constant, damp environment such as aerobics, steam baths or saunas may lessen the longevity of the Great Lengths Service. Precautions should be taken to avoid these conditions being repeated.
Seawater and pool can cause bond breakdown due to the constant damp environment. To minimize the effects, wet hair completely in the shower and apply anti-tap prior to swimming. After swimming shampoo, apply anti-tap and blow-dry the bonds to prevent bond breakdown.
Some extension loss is normal and to be expected. Average client hair loss is 50-150 hairs a day. A full head application covers approximately one-third of the head. You can expect to see a small quantity of naturally released hairs trapped in the attachments after some time. This is normal and should not be interpreted as hairs pulled out of the scalp by the extensions themselves. Daily brushing close to the scalp and finger separation of the applied strands will avoid matting in this area.
