Q:What are Great Lengths Hair Extensions & where do they originate from?
A:Great Lengths hair extensions are handcrafted in Italy. The hair originates from the temples in India where it has been willingly donated as a sacrifice to the gods of the temple. 100% of Great Lengths hair is ethically sourced via the temple hair auctions, Indian virgin temple hair is highly recommended for the best hair extensions due to the fact that it has never been chemically processed through bleaching and colouring and the texture of the hair matches that of Caucasian markets.
Q:How are Great Lengths applied to the hair?
A:Great Lengths hair extensions are prebonded with a synthesized keratin polymer. Many, if not all hair extension companies have started to claim that they use a keratin bond however Great Lengths was the first company to develop its patented bond and is still the only hair extension bond with functional benefits. The functionality is the Great Lengths bond has the ability to expand and contract with human hair when wet or dry, resulting in no strain or damage on the natural hair.
Great Lengths application technology extends to the innovative application machines used to mould the bond of the hair extension securely and discretely to the natural hair. The Great Lengths Ultrasonic 5000 uses cold fusion technology and techniques which enable flat and round bond formations. Ultrasound vibrations soften the synthesized keratin polymer, this method is quick and versatile.
The Classic 3200 machine uses a gentle thermal method to soften the keratin polymer and a rolling technique which is best for round bond formations. The Classic application machine is the original and still unmatched for neat precise application.

Q:I have heard of Multisonic. What is this?
A:Multisonic is a break-through in the application process for applying Great Lengths hair extensions. Normally, it takes anywhere between 3-5 hours to bond the single strand extensions to your hair, whilst the Multisonic takes 1 hour. The reason is the Multisonic applies 5 strands in one go. This is what’s known as a transfer.
