How hair extension companies colour their hair is the single most important factor in achieving luxurious hair extensions of exceptional quality.
Great Lengths is the only hair extension company to de-pigment their hair through a process of osmosis rather than bleach it to remove existing colour.
As Indian Hair is black, the hair is placed in osmosis baths where the black pigments are gently lifted from deep inside the cortex of the hair. This process of gently removing the pigment from the hair can take anywhere from 10 to 25 days to get it to the lightest shade of blonde.
From there on, new colour pigments are slowly inserted into the clean, empty space inside the cortex of the hair to produce the desired colour shade.
The bleaching process that other hair extension companies use weakens the hair considerably leaving it dry and brittle. This poor condition is then disguised temporarily with silicones which coat the hair making it feel soft and silky.
This is the most common cause of hair breakage: the over-processing of the hair with harsh chemicals or hair that is heat styled. This results in dry, rough and fragile hair with split ends that can be so damaged that it breaks off entirely.
