In Singapore I work with Great Lengths Hair Extensions and the reason I do is because they are considered by many to be the best in the market place.
Great Lengths was at the fore front when it came to producing new hair extension technologies and techniques. There are many different application techniques in use today but Great Lengths 100% human hair extensions use a patented pre-bonded polymer keratin bond. Because this means that the bonds have the ability to swell with water and contract when dry.
The Origins Of Great Lengths Hair Extensions.
The sourcing of the human hair used in extensions has been a subject of considerable debate. With some horror stories concerning the exploitation of people by some middle men who then sell on to rather dodgy hair extension companies.
Great Lengths always has and still does source its hair in a certified ethical way from temples in India.
Where it is customary for young women to give their hair as a gift to the temples as part of a religious ritual.
The temples sell the hair and then use the proceeds for medical aid . Such as hospitals and other charitable purposes.
As a professional hairstylist I make it a point of only working with reputable and responsible hair company’s.
Therefore I am happy to say that Great Lengths monitors all practices closely to ensure no hair is obtained from exploitative or unethical sources.
The Hair Quality.
When you buy hair extensions you should be looking for high quality hair. I know it will cost more but in the end it is worth it.
High quality means the hair used to make the Great Length extensions must be matt and tangle free. This way the cuticle layer that seals in moisture to protect the hair from the elements and environmental damage is healthy and intact.
100% Remis are the words you need to hear when looking for extensions. Whether in the market for pre bonded or semi permanent tape in extensions. If the ones you have looked at are not don’t waste your money.
100% Remis means all the hair strands are in fact facing in the direction of the natural hair growth. In other words all the cuticles of each of the hairs are facing the same way.
Should this not be the case you will find your hair extensions will tend to tangle and knot very easily.
All the hair used in Great Lengths hair extensions is double drawn. Meaning that each hair extension is the same thickness from its root to its tip.
About The Hair Used In Great Lengths Hair Extensions.
The Great Lengths hair is presently processed using their patented Osmosis process in Italy. Although I do believe they are in the process of relocating some time soon.
Great Lengths slowly removes the hairs natural color pigment in large vats over a process that lasts several days. This will help in preserving the natural structure and condition of the hair in the final product.
So enhancing their position as producing high quality hair extensions.
The Lightened hair is then re-colored to one of the many colors and shades available. This full process will take approximately 15 days to complete.
Great Lengths extension hair strands are pre bonded with a patented V shaped bond.
Being made from a special blend of polymers that replicate the molecular structure of keratin. The bond is also ph balanced so as to be kind to the hair and scalp.
