Great Lengths is a world leader in hair extensions, providing versatile, pre-bonded 100% human hair. The hair is of guaranteed origin and ethicality, and can be used to add length, volume, colour or texture to transform your style. We have over 55 base colours to choose from and blend together.
Our 100% human hair is sourced in India, during Hindu rituals. Women and men’s hair is voluntarily sacrificed and donated to temples by complete shaving of the head, a process known as tonsuring. We’re committed to ensuring that all of the hair we use is sourced ethically and willingly, and that a fair price is paid. Payment for the hair is then used to support the local community by developing temples and medical services.
Using the finest quality hair we can confidently guarantee the source, origin, quality and ethicality of all hair used in the process. Our commitment to ethical practice sees the proceeds from the purchase of the hair go directly back into the local communities and charities from where it originates. We continually monitor the sourcing practice to ensure no hair is obtained from exploitative or unethical sources.

The hair is purified again and sewn onto cloth to ensure it stays in the right direction. It is then placed into baths where very gently, existing pigment is removed through a natural process known as osmosis. Doing this naturally means that the cuticle stays in tact keeping the quality high.
The hair is then added into a colour bath. Again, osmosis does the hard work here by naturally replacing the colour pigment thats removed, with the new colour. After drying, we have beautiful, healthy, colourfast hair.
To ensure there are no tangles or shorter hairs in your order we ‘hackle’ hair by hand through a giant hairbrush to remove these. Our hair is then inspected under a UV light to guarantee the colour is consistent and pure.
The result, totally pure and ethical hair extensions of the most luxurious quality, in perfect condition.
