How to Help Your Clients Maintain Their Extensions At Home

by akesha / last updated March 23, 2020

As hair salons struggle to know whether or not to stay open during the coronavirus outbreak, many clients are taking the decision to keep away from salons.

However, how do you ensure that they are on top of the regular maintenance needed during a potentially extended break in appointments? Luckily, Great Lengths have put together the below handy guide you can show your clients in the interim.

Tips for hair extensions maintenance

Hair washing tips

When wearing extensions, although 100% human hair you do need to apply a little more attention when you wash your hair. Pick a shampoo that works with your hair type, Great Lengths have the NEW Silver Shine Shampoo for blondes, a Structure Repair, Daily Moisture and Ultimate Colour shampoo that have all been specially formulated to work in harmony with your Great Lengths. Be gentle and be patient, avoid encouraging matting by lathering up your shampoo on top of your head, instead gently and slowly massage shampoo from the root to tip applying special care when you are washing near your bonds or GL Tapes. Any conditioners, ensure you don’t apply at the root/application area. Conditioners can affect the bonds or GL Tapes and cause extensions to detach prematurely. – ​Nyree Robinson – sales executive

Colour maintenance

Specifically for blondes, if you’re used to popping to the salon for your regular toner make sure you invest in the Great Lengths Silver Shine Shampoo so that you can complete the process and banish those brassy tones at home. The NEW Silver Shine Shampoo can be used weekly to keep your colour looking its best and is 100% compatible with Great Lengths. For a more intense treatment you can leave the shampoo on for longer, (please seek your personal recommendation from your stylist) to remove yellow and brassy tones and replenish, uplift and bring life back to your blonde locks. – ​Louise Jenkins – creative & Education Manager

Intense treatments

This is the perfect time to dedicate yourself to some well deserved pamper time. Sometimes amongst our busy lifestyles we forget to give ourselves and our hair that extra little bit of attention but whilst you have the time, use it wisely to look after your Great Lengths. Great Lengths have a NEW High Performance Hair Mask that nourishes and moisturises your hair, it’s particularly good for those who are wearing long extensions and doesn’t take long to get to work. Apply to wet hair for 10-15 minutes for an intensive hair treatment. ​Louise Jenkins –
