So whats going on this week, well as we have a few of our clients getting their Hair Extensions done for Summer, here is some more information about Great Lengths...
Great Lengths is a world leader in hair extensions, providing versatile, pre-bonded 100% human hair. Our hair is of guaranteed origin and ethicality, and can be used to add length, volume, colour or texture to transform your look. We have over 55 base colours to choose from and blend together as well as limited edition colours and Flowstrands, which combine two colours for a dip-dyed or ombré effect.
- Hair is Sourced from Indian Temples - Great Lengths are 100% human hair and sourced in India, during Hindu rituals. Women and men’s hair is voluntarily sacrificed and donated to temples by complete shaving of the head, a process known as tonsuring. They're committed to ensuring that all of the hair we use is sourced ethically and willingly, and that a fair price is paid. Payment for the hair is then used to support the local community by developing temples and medical services, and supporting charitable causes.
- Hair is shipped to Italy - Only hair that hasn’t been exposed to damaging chemicals or styling processes is shipped to our factory in Italy. Our reps then supervise the first cleansing process, which focuses on removing any bacteria or toxins.
- Purifying the hair - In Italy the hair is purified again and sewn onto cloth to ensure it stays in the right direction. The hair is then placed into baths where very gently, existing pigment is removed through a natural process known as osmosis. Doing this naturally means that the cuticle stays in tact keeping the quality high.
- Colouring - The hair is then added into a colour bath. Again, osmosis does the hard work here by naturally replacing the colour pigment we’d removed, with the new colour. After drying, we have beautiful, healthy, colourfast hair.
- Quality Control - To ensure there are no tangles or shorter hairs in your order we ‘hackle’ hair by hand through a giant hairbrush to remove these. Our hair is then inspected under a UV light to guarantee the colour is consistent and pure.
- The Results - The result, totally pure and ethical hair extensions of the most luxurious quality, in perfect condition.
