Ladies, still have not found the perfect hair for your hair? We recently conversed with the owners of I Heart Hair, Inc, a hair company specializing in exotic human virgin hair, and they gave us all the tea on buying hair, installing hair and caring for your ‘do. Their site (and many customer testimonials) promise hair that has not been “chemically altered, minimal shedding, no extreme breakage” and intact cuticles (Ihearthairinc.com).
LaToya Dixson and Alexis Lee began exclusively online in 2011 and expanded into retail stores in Atlanta the following year. The Jacksonville, FL store joined the I heart Hair family in 2013. I Heart Hair Inc differentiates its business from other hair companies because “We pride ourselves on offering our customers a complete experience. We want to provide them with quality hair extensions and products plus great customer service which includes educating them on proper hair care and extension maintenance” (Alexis of I Heart Hair).
The team even gave us a little advice on caring for extensions–namely treating them with the same TLC you would give to the hair growing out of your head: “shampoo and condition regularly with products that are sulfate and paraben free. Also, wrap your extensions or wear a silk bonnet at night to protect them ” (Alexis of I Heart Hair). As far as coloring and flat ironing your weave, I heart Hair offers this: “you can press and color our virgin hair extensions. We have straight, wavy and curly textures. We don’t suggest applying too much heat to any virgin hair or to your natural hair so you don’t strip the hair of it’s texture pattern. For color-treated hair, you can color all of our virgin hair extensions taking them from their natural brown color to platinum blonde, to red, to even jet black. We suggest you get your extensions colored by a professional colorist or your stylist” (LaToya of I Heart Hair).
The famed hair company delivers several textures and types of hair to meet your style needs and their dedicated customer service reps will help you decide which hair and installation type is right for you. The company also recommends consulting your stylist to help you decide what hair and installation method will work for you.
Finally, I heart Hair suggests co-washing your extensions before installing them and brushing and wrapping them with a silk bonnet or scarf at night to minimize shedding, although all hair sheds a little simply because that is the nature of human hair.
