Sun, Sea, Sand… And Your Hair?

Preparing for a holiday is one of the most exciting parts; finding any excuse to buy new clothes and get your nails painted that coral colour you love, it’s sometimes easy to forget that your hair needs a little care too.

Don’t worry, Great Lengths are here to make it easy to help care for both your own hair and your extensions in the Summer months. We’re here to share a few tips and tricks on how to keep those long locks looking amazing on your summer holiday.

Pool and Sea Hair:

As you know heat and hair don’t mix well, sweat can increase the PH value of your skin turning your hair from neutral to alkaline.

The same can be said for the salt in the sea and the chlorine in the pool, the best way to restore the PH balance of your scalp and hair is by using our Anti-Tap Water Spray to reinfuse your hair with that much needed moisture.


Tangle Taming:

To minimise as many knots and tangles as possible, we recommend tying your hair up in a loose bun or a neat plait. If you’re going to get your hair wet (and we know you will…) it’s much easier to avoid knots if your hair has been tied back.



The right brush is also an absolute must for us! Especially when hair is likely to get knotted; our Great Lengths travel brush is the perfect beach companion as it’s small enough to fit into any beach bag!


After Sun Care:

Once the fun in the sun is over, it’s time to treat your tresses to our Extra Rich Hair Mask.

The mask is perfect to put some moisture back in to your sun-kissed tresses with luscious ingredients including Pro-keratin and Vitamin B5.

Whatever you’re doing on your summer holiday, don’t forget to have lots of fun and make sure your hair remains as fabulous as ever… and don’t worry if you’re wearing Great Lengths Hair extensions, as they’re 100% human hair, the same rules apply.
