The hair is the nicest there is and,It lasts the longest above all extension systems,because of their all natural keratin bonds.The bonds are very durable and last 6 months!. :genie: Feel free to pm me! Great lengths extensions helps you to grow your hair faster and more healthier.The condition and the length of my hair has amazed me since I have been wearing extensions,I highly recommend getting this safe extension system above all the other techniques,not because I represent g.l. but because I know from experience with all of the above.My hair would'nt grow past my shoulders till I wore g.l. now it's down the middle of my back!I wish I knew about these extensions when I was in high school,It would've beeen a more exciting time!LOL!Guys check me out wherever I go!I love it!Believe me.For more pictures go to The body buisness section and search under Funky Red Hair Extensions.I also put my own extesions in my own hair myself.

i love extensions but i have never had the "real ones" lol. i always do my own--glued in! i wish i could come to ny and have you do them tia! im still gonna check on the ? i asked you, about the license. i plan to do the same thing as you are--but in cosmo school they talk so much about doing things without a license, i think even at your home, i have to make sure its legal here in cali to do them without a license. i want to go to clubs and do them for dancers- they have the money to spend and it's a good investment in this business!! i always make more money when i have long hair...

Go for it bikinigirl!:D I had my cosmotology lic. when I took the great lengths coarse.Like I said,you can call and ask them to see if they will certify you while you are still in beauty school!I'm not sure if they do or not.They might say you have to put in your thousand hours first,But then again, They are an exclusive company and might require you to have your a cosmo lic.before you can take their coarse, to keep their reps looking professional!:)

I just got mine done by Tia Maria and I tell you they are great!. I thought the extensions I had before were good but these are an improvement. They are far less bulky than the braid in ones I had and the I was able to get the longer length I was looking for ( They are down to my butt, now). Once I get some pictures I will post them. I also got the funky red streaks, very cool. Tia Maria is so nice and helped me pick out the right hair dye to match the color of the extensions and everything. I love Them!http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_1_32v.gif (http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb001_ZNxdm82541US) http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_1_32v.gif (http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb001_ZNxdm82541US)Thanks Tia!

I really dont want to have to go through perming them. I prefer to buy them already permed..

Hia Tampa! How are you sweetie? No, Extensions are NOT suppose to tangle your hair ,Not in the least bit.. Be sure an use great lengths products , They are made to maintenance the extensions.. In Particular the Anti~Tap Water..It is designed to prevent matting and tangling of your extensions..(very important to use) You mix each line to 8 oz. of water,preferrably purified water hon..Also you must comb by the roots to seperate the extensions /bonds and make sure you comb 3 times a day as close to your scalp as imaginably possible... Try this site has a really great extension brush brush,as seen here on this site. ... I also recommend using their shampoo no.3 and their energy conditioner,and also their vital care lotion.Here is a site that sells the NXT products by great Lengths.. Your hair Is matting because you are not either brushing the right way near the scalp, and not using The Anti~Tap water and the other maintenance kit products doll. This site(peterlouis.com) also has instructions on how to keep your extensions looking fresh and new. Well I hope this helps you my Dear ; ) ...*hugs* And Great Lengths sells hair that is curley,They have 5 different sizesof curls,from very loose to very tight sweetie...You can buy the clipon human hair (curley ) extensions from this site.. . :P

MWAH! ;) Tia

07-22-2005, 02:38 AM
tia, i didnt find the great lengths curly hair extensions on that site? All i saw was the synthetic, which i dont want.. :(


I also asked my hairdresser who put the great lengths in my hair if you could get it curly, and she told me that she would have to perm it first... :(

tiamaria
07-22-2005, 11:30 PM
Monica ~ I'm not sure hon.I have a few people who relax their hair and wear gl , but they dont relax the whole head,just the top of their head(they don't put the relaxer on the extension hair).




Tampa ~heres the anti ~ Tap Water sight. The Hair Comes Already Permed , I have no idea why your hairdresser would tell you that she has to perm it. Maybe you should call another great lengths person? Strange ~

Try the raquel welsh human hair, Its suppose to be very good. :)

Help-
I am supposed to go in on Wed. to get my current extensions taken out and new ones put in as my hair got matted. I need a trim as well since my ends were damaged from prior coloring. The problem is- my scalp is sensitive, I have noticed bumps from the extensions pulling my scalp, have a few little bald spots and some hair has fallen. I want to get my hair redone on Wed. as it is really short naturally, but if I keep this up I don't want to go bald!!! Other girls have said that they too have bumps but they don't seem to care. What should I do???

tiamaria
07-25-2005, 02:50 PM
Hmmmm.... bumps? I never heard of that one.Are you using Great Lengths Hair Extensions?I have been wearing GL for 5 years and never have gotten bumps.

If you are not using GL , I suggest that you switch to them.I am running a special right now on Great Lengths, If youre interested ,let me know! ;)

If you are using GL , Then maybe you might consider taking out your extensions and keeping them out for a little while ,like 1 month, Just to give your scalp a rest.I hope this helped! :P



As for matting ~Great Lengths products such as their "NXT anti~tap" water is designed for your extensions by preventing them from any tangling that leads to matting.You can find anti~tap water on this sight. or ask your great lengths representative to sell it to you.1. Keep the hair clean. You can wash your hair every day. If not you should wash it at least once or twice a week with warm water. Wash your hair immediately after swimming, spa, exercise, and etc. When dirt and sweat accumulate, hair tangles. Too much leave-in conditioners and other hair care products will create a build up on the hair and will cause it to tangle faster. If the hair feels dry or heavy with build up, wash it with good, salon quality, shampoo & conditioner.

2. When swimming, always wear a cap or keep your hair out of the water to prevent prolong exposure to chlorine or salt water which causes the hair to tangle. I recommend pre-wetting your hair with water then applying some conditioner before swimming. This will keep it from absorbing too much chlorine or salt water. Always wash the hair right away with shampoo and conditioner after swimming in both types of water. When going to the spa, the hair should be brushed out completely and should be wrapped in a cold wet towel. All but the best extension hair (Great Lengths for example) can completely mat up the instant it hits salt water. It can also happen with sweat. so be careful.

3.Make couple of big braids or pony tails when going to sleep, swim, or exercise (please untangle the hair before making the braids). NEVER SLEEP ON WET HAIR it can mat up! Make sure the hair is completely dry before going to bed.

4. Make sure you brush the 2-3 times hair daily and apply some leave-in conditioners so that the hair is soft manageable. Try not to put conditioner on the bonds if you are using any strand-by-strand extensions. With any strand-by-strand extensions it is very important to keep the bonds tangle free and separated. run your fingers between them once or twice a day and brush your roots 2-3 times daily with a natural bristle brush, for very fine hair, or a loop brush, for thicker hair. A good leave-in hair treatment can keep the hair from drying. But remember not to put too much otherwise there will be a build up and make the hair feel too heavy. If the hair feels too dry or heavy with too much hair care products, you should wash the hair.

These following instruction are for the less expensive extension hair.

5. Before washing the hair, spray mixture of conditioner and water and brush the hair from bottom up. You must gradually wet the hair down and brush it gently before you completely wash the hair. If the hair is very dry and a lot of water is added at once, hair will swell up like sponge and tangle! Therefore, it is important to gradually wet the hair and brush it.

6. After wetting the hair, add shampoo and conditioner and brush thoroughly. Be sure to wash and brush the hair in one direction. Rinse the hair completely with water and towel dry. It is best to air dry the hair but you can also blow-dry with low to medium heat.

7. You can also make a leave-in conditioner at home by diluting conditioner (10%) with water (90%). Put in a spray bottle and apply the mixture lightly onto your hair and brush the hair from the end to the top near the scalp.

8. It would be advisable NOT TO TINT, COLOR, PERM OR DO ANY EXTRA CHEMICAL PROCESSES because it has already been treated. Please be extra careful with blonde and other light colored hair. They are more chemically processed than the dark hair.


here are some other ways to take better care of you extensions and ways to prevent from matting.

Hair Extension Methods

Strand-by-Strand Extensions

Great Lengths: Great Lengths is based on a gentle principle: modulating. They have created an extremely high-tech method of bonding between the Great Lengths strand and your own hair. This point of attachment is composed of polymer chains whose molecular structure is very similar to that of human hair. It is activated by the Great Lengths applicator and bonds the Great Lengths strand with your own hair in this way. It can, however, be easily removed by an expert. The extensions themselves are very small- invisible to anyone even if they are looking for them. The hair is of the highest quality with silky straight ,a natural body wave, pre~bonded permed in 5 different curls, An ethnic texture is also available. Most important of all: your own hair is not damaged as long as you follow your stylist’s instructions. Daily use of Great Lengths’ own Anti-Tap solution on the bonds will keep them strong. A soft, natural brush bristle needs to be used on the roots 2-3 times daily. Lasts 3-6 months

So.Cap Extensions:Very nice color selection. Wonderful color blends available.

Cinderella Extensions These extensions are similar to the size and application of Great Lengths. The bond is of a different formula and the hair processed differently. Bonds do have a tendency to turn white so this can be a concern on dark hair. You should be able to get these extensions at a lower cost. Cinderella extensions Lasts 3-5 months.

Ultra Strands: . The hair is very smooth and silky. Comes in a body wave and straight.

Euro Locs/ Hair Locs: This top quality human hair is attached using a crimp method to your own hair, allowing it to be a very comfortable hair extension system to wear. NO heat, NO wax, NO polymers or weaving method is used. Hair can be worn for up to 4 months and then it can be re-attached. Being able to reuse the hair can save you money on the second application. You may be able to get a 3rd application if you kept the hair in very good condition.

Mega Extensions (Fusion)
Mega extensions are also attached to your hair with a strand by
strand method (they originated it). The bond is a hi-tech adhesive which has a keratin base but can not be made as small and delicate as the Great Lengths. So you have a slightly larger bond. If the bond material is too little it will not hold up. A larger amount of hair can be put in each Mega bond which can work great for people with thick hair. Because of the thicker bonds I don't recommend Megas if you have ultra fine hair. You can purchase any type of hair to use with the Mega adhesive so that can be an advantage for people who have hair that is not match up with the silky hair that the Great Lengths and others come in. Megas work best on average to thick hair.

Ultratress
Ultratress Extensions are bonded to your hair in strips. Normally 4-5 strips are attached. They work best for thickening up and lengthening hair that is already shoulder length.
Ultratress extensions work best for people with hair that is too thin and delicate for extensions. They are very comfortable and blend in perfectly with your own hair.

Other Hair Extension Methods

Braided and sewn extensions (weave) - natural hair is braided along the scalp then the hair extension is sewn into the braids. This is a great technique because it allows your own natural hair to rest, thicken, and lengthen. Your own hair is securely braided in very fine cornrows. The extension is then sewn into your braids. Works best with hair that is course and not so well with very fine, silky hair. This style can last 2-5 months or more with proper care.

Bonded Extensions (weave) - natural hair is divided into sections then the hair weave is glued to the scalp. The bonded weave lasts 1 month. There are many different glues that are used for this method. ChrissyV adhesive

i just spent 1200 dollars on clamp in hair extensions at jenniffer and co. in mentor. I LOVE them! now my hair is so much longer and prettier. they are hight maintenance at first, but you will get the hang of them! they stay in for 3 months and they are clamped in and not glued. only 5 out of 100 fell out in those 3 months. I cant imagine ever going without them anytime soon! try it out and enjoy!

Hi
I have been doing extensions for ten years and would like to quickly comment on a few things. ONe is that if your hair looks fake or like a weave You have defeated the purpose ;). Most people purchase the hair which is from China and has been placed in an Acid bath before adding color, this is to thin it our a bit. They then place silicon over it to give it that shiny look, however, we all know that after a few washed it goes away. Become dry and brittle. Also it is mixed so it is hair from different people, the cuticle is completely damaged. I suggest investing in hair that may only come from two people, if you can afford it then go for virgin hair from one person. I order directly from India and use it for my business. It is beautiful hair and can be used over again (what a concept :) ) Also stay away from washing your extensions in really hot water, if you love hot showers like I do that is one thing but keep your hair out of the hot water. ALso brush from the ends up and put it in a braid before bed.
I hope this has helped a bit. I have a studio for Hair Extensions in Baltimore. If you have any questions please let me know and I would love to try and help out. I do fusion and So.Cap. I am a licensed for SO.CAP and have been doing fusion for ten years. I did see TiaMarias comments and she is also on the note about care for your hair.

And you felt it necessary to point that out? I think that was sweet of her to locate that page and post it in here for one of our girls. She still took the time to do it regardless of who did the research.

If you're trying to sell a service to SW posters, don't you think it's a bad idea to start out that way? Way to sell!

Actually i couldnt agree with you more- lets give credit where credit is due, yes it was awesome she copied and pasted it here for all to see, there was hrs of research done to come up with that- that was actually my main reason for stating that,
{{Trying to sell something}}, not really, although i do extensions, that was not the basis for my post. It was to offer professional help. ;D

I also do great lengths and am very inexpensive! My usual price for 24" bundle are 210 per bundle.The average full head takes 5 bundles.So for a full head of the longest (24") will run you 1,050 dollars.(Which is the cheapest you'll find Great Lengths anywhere else) Great Lengths is the absolute best and most desired.My prices are what people pay for cheaper extensions.I did my own hair as I have stated before,and here are some pictures of me ( I put strand by strand on my own head all on my own) If you want Quality for reasonable/Affordable pric4es that can't be beet, let me know. ;)

Go with Ultratress..it is seamless real hair NO Glue! Great Lengths is overpriced and the glue ruins your hair.


I love Ultratress and no glue is involved...and the hair can be reused..

In response to ( prettililli ) post(Lucia),I have never had a complaint with any of my clients before, as you already know, because the girl whom recommended you to me has extensions that I did for her.(holly)
There are several other ladies at that salon whose extensions I do also.(as you already know that speak highly of my services .There are several dancers here on stripper web whos hair I do as well and they love their extensions and tell me that they never had a problem with my services. They tell me that they absolutely adore their hair extensions! Everyone of my clients have told me that their hair lasted over 5 months without losing a single strand of their hair extension! And another thing Lucia, If you have bald spots you had to of "without a doubt" it is do from been pulling them out of your head!.( hoping to find your next victim for a law suit!)Shame on you! There is no way that your hair naturally fell out,They were pulled! You can see the roots in your pictures,"Nobody" has this happened to them but you. I'm not stupid!You yourself have told meof your drunken adventures admitting to have woke up in a bathtub covered with blood,from blacking out from obliviousness.(hmmm....maybe Can this be why your hair was pulled out and abused?)

I find it very hard to believe that you had lost a bundle of hair in just one week! I especially don't believe this because I have asked every single person I do their hair how long till they lost their first extension,And they all said after 4 months! I had everyone of my clients call Great Lengths and tell them that themselves! FYI~And they did, and each one told great lengths how phennominal of an extensionist I am and the girls from the salon told great lengths how you are suing everyone, and how mean you are. and what it is that you do,"SUE HAPPY LUCIA"they call you.and another thing I hear they call you is "The Wicked Witch!"Thanks for taking advantage of me and all the prank phone calls at ungodly hours of the wee morning,and the ridiculous amount of harrassing E mails you mailed me labor day weekend because you had to wait out the weekend for your money back.Oh ,and the awful things you said to me concerning my fiance that recently passed away,How could you be so cruel as to tell me that about a man I loved dearly whom you never even knew. All the bullshit you caused me and my son.How old are you? You tell me you are in your fifties? well, you act like you're a troubled teenager!!Besides I have given you every penny back that you paid for the services, and you still weren't satisfied?You are a sick woman!Everyone told me this!You had the nerve to tell great lengths you want to be re~embersed ,not mentioning that I offered you your money back! haha, Trying to sue Great Lengths? hmmmm. :P

I heard that you are guilty of being "Sue Happy" as put by the people at the salon,You are suing everyone from your travel agent, to your plastic surgeons! If I would have known this , I would have"NEVER" done buisness with you.I am also aware that you are no longer welcome in the salon where you got my number from because of the way you behaved with me.Now , for anyone who doesn't know this woman, she is an older woman who says to be a retired stripper ,which she is not.She found out about stripper web from me, I had showed her the body buisness section ,and she decided to join up as "A retired Dancer".

I spent alot of hours working on this woman, and then she gets me on a technicality, (as for following great Lengths Guidlines) Well, that would be washing the clients hair with great lengths shampoo for prepping the hair.Which is a shampoo without conditioner added.I told Lucia to wash her hair really good and don't put any products on it including conditioner.This would be the only guidline that I didn't perfom to her which I might add is a common sense thing, (most people I know are capable of washing their hair really good?)


Anyway, I also heard from the girls at that salon your banned from,that her hair looked fine, and she had gone to another salon and they told her that nothing was wrong with her hair, but she denied this.

I just thbought I would respond to this slander and stick up for myself, my name , as a hair extensionist.
This women is not well ,I have been told, and she has nothing better to do then to think of ways to get things for nothing and to sue! :P

It's too bad that you are such a nasty/ miserable women.I spent alot of my hard earned work on you woman, and for what? You got free hair, which btw, you wore long after you told me you did.I have alot of people telling me all kinds of horror stories about this woman, You say that I am unprofessional ?Well, I didn't have an affair with a married co~Worker and then say it was rape?Now she's the one you should stay away from. :O Bite me Lucia!

Hi everyone. I have to defend TiaMaria.She does a wonderful job and is a sweetheart first off for those who don't know her personally. I don't know what you're talkin about!I was shocked to read this today! I know other people who go to tiamaria for their extensions and they feel the same way!She's very professional,very reasonably priced,personable,very very nice,honest. I got my extensions done by her and they have been nothing by fabulous. I have had them in over six months (I know, I waited too long to get them redone but have been so busy) and I lost only a couple of extensions, And that was after 4 months!! My hair looks great and TiaMaria has been nothing but sweet to me. (She didn't even yell at me for waiting too long to get them redone).She has gone out of her way and then some for me and other clients whether it be her spending extra time on me until I am satisfied with the finished product, or if I wanted a sleek look from a hair straightening ,blowing,cutting or curling the hair for no additional charges.I (other places I have been charge for this and nickel and dime you in any way they can!) And to Prettililli? Honey If your hair fell out I truley believe that it was because you pulled them out! They look pulled out in the picture. How can you put that picture for your avatar, that's horrible. And she gave you all of your money back? What?Sweetie No other hairdresser would do that?What's wrong with you to come on here posing as a retired stripper and having nothing better to do then spend your time bullying a sweet girl like tia?To all those who are curious to other extensions?(hairlocs,eurolocs,shrinkies,weaves) I thought my other extensions were great, but this has been the best by far. And I have had many different kinds- glue in, sewn in, etc. If you can't wash your hair good enough by yourself enough to clean the residue out of it you probably couldn't take care of your extensions.Stop suing good /honest hard working people such as tia! How could you be so horrible!She just lost her fiance and you were insensitive?that's really low, You're a miserable women,Get a clue! And Ultress? Please.

Don't worry Maria, I still love you. I will be still be a client. I need your number again to set up an appointment for Feb/March.;)

For anyone who missed my thread about hair extensions,if anyone is interested in great lengths hair extensions that's in the N.Y. area I:eye: have a certification to do g.l. ,And will do it for half the price anywhere else you will find.*and if you're not familiar wth G.L.,The are the finest hair extensions in the world and worth the invesment! The hair is the nicest there is and,It lasts the longest above all extension systems,because of their all natural keratin bonds.The bonds are very durable and last 6 months!. :genie: Feel free to pm me! Great lengths extensions helps you to grow your hair faster and more healthier.The condition and the length of my hair has amazed me since I have been wearing extensions,I highly recommend getting this safe extension system above all the other techniques,not because I represent g.l. but because I know from experience with all of the above.My hair would'nt grow past my shoulders till I wore g.l. now it's down the middle of my back!I wish I knew about these extensions when I was in high school,It would've beeen a more exciting time!LOL!Guys check me out wherever I go!I love it!Believe me.For more pictures go to The body buisness section and search under Funky Red Hair Extensions.I also put my own extesions in my own hair myself.

Wish I lived in NY.

I don't like great lengths either. I wore them for two years and my hair broke a lot, but in fairness my hair has a lot of chemical damage. I just went back to good, old-fashioned sewn in weave and I am happy with it (and with the money I saved myself).

I do several different types of hair extensions, G.L. and Mark Barrington ( the extensions a lot of the WF ladies wear). I work in Toronto, MI, WI and IL. I will install the first extensions for the cost of the hair. ( I know when you see it is quality you will be back with your friends)
contact me with questions.

Are great lengths good on african american hair??...I relax and dye my hair so I'm thinking they wont last on my hair and it would end up breaking my hair off...I wonder if hair locs are better? I've had braided/sewn in weaves before but sorta don't like those cause the braides are so tight and my scalp gets itchy after a while and I cant wash my hair freely since the braides are in the way.

I go to Wig Allure across from the Smithaven Mall. You can reuse the hair from Ultratress andit is awesome, natural and very inexpensive....No glue.Great Lengths ruined my hair.

Great lengths ruined my hair, and a lot of other girls hair too. I like Tru Locks. I mean, look at Paris, has her hair grown AT ALL these past years?

I hate great lengths. I think the extensions themselves feel very coarse and also, they make it impossible to brush your hair as they start to grow out. I had to take them out after two and a half months because they were giving me dreadlocks. That was a waste of 1600 bucks!
