Indian hair is optimal for the manufacturing of hair extensions.

Great Lengths utilizes only remy hair which means that the cuticle layers are all facing the same direction from root to end and, therefore, do not tangle. This also ensures that the extensions behave exactly like your own hair, blending in superbly with yours and looking super natural!

European Hair:
Unsuitable for hair extensions

European hair is very fine and can be found on the market only in very small quantities. Few European women would be willing to give up their hair to hair companies and, if they did, it would be necessary for their hair to never have been chemically treated. Very unlikely!

Chinese Hair:
Unsuitable for hair extensions

Even though Chinese hair can be found in large quantities, this type of hair is not compatible with most hair textures. The structure of the cuticle and cortex are formed in a rounded cross-section as opposed to the oval shape of Caucasian hair, making it too thick and rigid to be utilized for extensions. This kind of hair is acceptable for the preparation of wigs and toupes, since these are dry cleaned only, allowing the silicone layer to stay and the hair to remain shiny.

Brushed Indian Hair:
Unsuitable for hair extensions

Hundreds of thousands of Indian women gather the hair that is collected in their brushes which consists of different lengths, thicknesses and colors. This method of collection results in balls of yarn where the hair lies unorganized in all directions. Because of the inability to insure the cuticle layer of the hair is facing the same direction, it is necessary to submit it to an aggressive acid treatment to strip it of its cuticle layer. Once removed, the hair receives a silicone coating which allows it to remain tangle free after the first few shampoos. The condition and manageability continue to diminish over time.

Patented Bonding Method


Our Keratin:

The method of bonding patented by Great Lengths is of the highest technology. The keratin is a polymer compound whose molecular structure is very similar to that of human hair and respects its same properties and alterations. When wet, hair expands and when dry it contracts back to its natural state. Our keratin moves and behaves like your own hair, ensuring a gentle yet strong hold without damage.

Other polymers:

Unlike our keratin, other polymers do not behave like human hair. This means that the Environmental elements will soon deteriorate the bond and the hair starts to fall out.
