Cold Fusion Hair Extensions


Hair extensions are used to make hair look thicker, more deep in color, add texture and length to natural hair. The hair extensions used are made from 100% natural human hair.


There are different types of hair extension methods used to attach these hair extensions to your scalp. These methods include, clipping, tubing, gluing and sewing. Cold fusion hair Extensions gives you a proper match with your natural hair gives you an instantaneous new look.

For hot fusion hair extension, a hot glue is used to attach the hair extensions. A hot fusion connector is used to adhere the hair extension near the roots of the natural hair. Due to the use of this heated tool, some people experience damage to the scalp and burns. While cold hair extension uses a different technique that is safe.

Cold fusion hair extension is a new technique of attaching hair extensions. The method is more popular because of its advantages over the hot fusion method. Cold fusion hair extensions use a keratin based polymer to attach the hair extensions to the scalp. This polymer is flexible in nature and hence, the hair extensions do not become stiff and do not look unnatural. 

One more advantage of cold fusion hair extensions when compared to hot fusion hair extensions is, that the hair extensions last longer with this method. Ultrasound waves are used in cold fusion hair extensions. These waves are converted into mechanical energy and the vibration generated due to this conversion is applied to the scalp area, where the keratin tip meets the natural hair. This forms a strong bond between the natural hair and the hair extension. The bond formed is invisible strong bond and does not cause any scalp damage as in hot fusion technique. With cold fusion hair extension technique you can add hair extensions to any part of your scalp including the frontal portion.


Great Lengths 100% Human Hair Extensions



Great Lengths technology for the application of 100% human hair strands has eliminated the limitations of decades-old technology for extensions. Length, volume or both can now be easily and gently applied without compromising the integrity of your natural strands.


Application


While others use techniques like welding, waxing, gluing or knotting, which often damage your hair, Great Lengths uses a much more gentle principle: modulating - an extremely high tech method of attachment between the Great Lengths strand and your own hair.  The Great Lengths applicator activates the bond (composed of polymer chains whose molecular structure is very similar to that of human hair) and joins the Great Lengths strand with your own hair.  When you are ready to have your extensions removed a special solution is applied that disintegrates the bond.

Maintenance


W
ith Great Lengths you can achieve the impossible and there are no limits with what you can do to your hair. Swimming, dancing,  playing tennis or skiing…If you regularly take care of your hair and your extensions your lifestyle will be trouble free.

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…!

European Hair - Unsuitable for hair extensions!

Chinese Hair - Unsuitable for hair extensions

Even though Chinese hair can be found in large quantities, this type of hair is not compatible with ours because it has got a round cross-section as opposed to the oval shape of Caucasian hair, making it too thick and rigid to be compatible with European hair.

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 Hair - Unsuitable for hair extensions

Hundreds of thousands of Indian women gather the hair that is collected in their brushes, hair of different lengths, thickness and color. This method of collection results in balls of yarn where the hair lies unorganized in all directions.

Because of the different directions the hair is lying in, and in order to be able to use it, it is necessary to submit it to an aggressive acid treatment to strip it of its cuticle layer and prevent it from tangling.

In order to thin it out and give it a softer texture, this mixed hair must undergo an aggressive chemical treatment that destroys the hair’s cuticle layer, leaving it opaque and fragile.

This is what happens when hair is treated with chemicals, it becomes opaque and fragile.

The hair is covered with a silicon layer which gives it a healthy look. But this protection has a short life.

In the beginning the hair seems shiny and beautiful, but after a few washes the silicone layer starts to wash away and the hair becomes dull and brittle again, thus resulting in serious matting and discomfort.

Great Lengths De-pigmentation Process


The hair arrives at the Great Lengths factory in Rome in its virgin state. There it undergoes a special process.
The hair undergoes a delicate process of de-pigmentation lasting 15-20 days. The black pigments are slowly lifted from inside the hair, NOT from the outside as it happens with ammonium derivatives which damage our outside cuticle. Basically, we don’t bleach our hair!
Great Lengths De-pigmentation Process
Great Lengths De-pigmentation:
The color molecules are actually removed rather than bleached… Our system of depigmentation does not damage the hair and permits the removal of the black pigment without altering the quality of the hair

Standard Decoloration:  
The color pigments are broken down but they continue taking up space inside the hair. The bleaching agent also damages the hair, leaving it opaque and fragile.

In order to obtain excellent quality without variations as well as a vast range or colors, the hair is subjected to a special process of pigmentation. When not subjected to dye or bleach, virgin hair has the same texture and quality of dark hair. We treat our hair like cashmere.

Great Lenghts Pigmentation

The new pigment has a clean, empty space to occupy. This ensures that the molecules sets firmly in place and thus the color will not fade out… just like your cashmere sweater!

Traditional Dying

The traditional dye does not manage to cover the molecules, remaining only on the surface. This means that after several washes the color will fade away.
