hair extension questions

Why are human hair extensions better?
 
A: Great Lengths only use 100% human hair because they create a more natural look. They are also suitable for most lifestyle activities, and can be treated the same as your natural hair. They can be styled using blow dryers and straighteners, as well as being color treated and permed.
 
Will hair extensions damage my own natural hair?
 
Our hair extensions will not damage your hair as long as they are applied properly by a professional, and maintained properly. Our hair is 100% natural and the bond has been formulated using a special blend of polymers that replicate the molecular structure of keratin. Keratin is a protein from which natural hair is made so if your extensions are maintained in the recommended way, no problems should occur.
 
How long does it take for hair extensions to be applied?
 
This depends on how many extensions you are having and the application system being used. For example with either the Classic or Cold Fusion system you can have half a head of extension applied in approximately 2 hours. However, with the Fast Fusion method this can less than an hour! Your stylist will be able to discuss this with you further at your consultation.
 
How long will my extensions last?
 
By following our simple maintenance regimen, extensions can last up to 6 - 8 weeks using the Cold Fusion system and up to 5 months with the Hot Fusion system. Our experts will be happy to offer advice on which products will help prolong the life of your extensions.
 
Are hair extensions difficult to style?
 
Because our hair extensions are 100% human hair they can be treated in just the same way as your own hair –straighten, curl, perm and even color.
