Natural Entrepreneur Creates Weave that Blends Perfectly With Natural Hair Types


To the naked eye, the woman above looks like another natural sporting a droolworthy twist out. But she is actually rocking weave from the Heat Free Hair company.

The company is the brainchild of Ngozi Opara, who owns N-ZO Hair Studios in Washington DC. She states;

I have always believed not only in embracing your natural ‘kinks’ and ‘curls’, but also in the benefits of sew-in weaves as a protective style. At my salon, we call it ‘the ultimate protective style’. Being natural for almost a decade, I experienced my greatest length retention during my one-year weave challenge back in 2005. My hair grew over 8 inches! Since then I have maintained both my hair and the hair of my clients through customized regimens and protective styling. Whether you are transitioning without chopping, growing your hair out, protecting it for a period of time, or considering going natural, The Heat Free Hair Movement provides an option that will allow you to embrace your journey with confidence and style.

The hair is made from 100% virgin human hair and retails for $139 to $199 a pack. It is currently all sold out and there is a waiting list for the re-stock, a testament to the product’s high popularity.




Our recent style icon Jaqui, credited the Heat Free Hair ForCurls collection with helping her stay away from flat ironing this past winter.

Have you heard of the Heat Free Hair company? Would you rock this as a protective style?

  1. Its really a great blog…..Amazing images with description. Virgin Remy Hair weft are not chemically processed and retains their natural look of weft and strength.Thanks for sharing such essential information.

  2. Good stuff. I just wish they had used models with natural hair, so we get an idea of how the weaves would looks on

  3. Innovation = great
    price = mild drawback
    accessibility = drawback (how temporary?)
    look = fabulous

    Overall it seems like a good investment if weaves/wigs are your go to for protection. It’s getting hard to tell what’s real or ‘in addition’ these days that ad looks very real! Of course there are more economical ways to achieve the same look, but more power to those that have the extra coin to spend for the quality. In my experience with weaves,you definitely get what you pay for.

  4. This collection seems amazing! A great option for women who have lost their hair due to illness, or adverse reaction to a medication, and who still want a head full of natural hair. I salute the Sister who founded this company!

  5. I’m not sure *why* because all the positives seem to add up nicely, but something about this whole venture smacks of deceit & redundancy… even the models they’ve chosen for each texture of hair is trying to communicate something that just isn’t accurate… yup.. nah, mine does this for free. Good luck

  6. The hair is beautiful, but I cringe when I think about the women whose hair was cut and sold for this and under what circumstances. With Indian women, they are usually observing a religious custom when they shave their hair. Other people gather it and sell it, but, unfortunately, they probably don’t make money off it themselves. Then, there are thousands of other women who do cut and sell their hair to earn money to feed and clothe their families.

    My point is, a woman is very attached to her hair, in more ways than one, and consider it to be her crown and glory. Unless she’s cutting it for religious reasons, a charitable cause, a new look, or a medical issue, the circumstances are probably highly desperate. Anyone saw Les Misérables? For these reasons, and these reasons alone, I would feel terrible about wearing another sister’s lucious locks. I get chills when I think about it! I would rather wear a sinthetic kinky-curly weave, but to each her own.
