I saw a new client last week for a haircut and Great Lengths consultation. Brittany has a lot of fine hair and the ends were not in the best shape due to a lot of color damage. She’s now a rich brunette which will give her hair a break from being blonde last summer.
Brittany has had Great Lengths before and loved them but she was concerned about them damaging her hair. I put her mind at ease with my number one home care maintenance tip. I would say, in my experience, the main reason people feel like bonded extensions damage their hair is because they don’t brush between the bonds. You have to brush between the bonds twice a day to ensure the hairs you would naturally shed that are now in the bond do not get tangled around each other. I’ve seen clients come in with golf ball sized mats of hair because they never or rarely brushed between the bonds. Tugging and picking out those mats is where the damage comes in, not from the extensions.
That one tip alone can make all the difference with your extensions experience.
Brittany wanted her hair to feel fuller and just a little longer than her current length. We went with 12″ hair which added 5″ inches to her length. After 4 hours she was so happy with the finished look. Here’s the before, middle and after picture of this Great Lenghts makeover. Enjoy!
