Spring Sale FAQs

When will my order be processed?

    • We want to make sure you get your curls on time! During a sale period, all orders are processed as they are received (yes, even on the weekends!). Because we are working hard to get your order to you as quickly as possible, once your order has been placed, we are not able to accommodate cancellations, edits, or updates to your order.

Can I cancel my order?

    • Sale periods are very busy due to high order volume. During sale periods, we process all orders as they are received to ensure we ship orders as quickly as possible. This means we are unable to accommodate any cancellations once the order is placed.  

When will my order ship?

    • During sale periods, orders are shipped on a 1-3 business day schedule. When your order is shipped, you will receive an email with your tracking number. That tracking number will be updated with details when it has been received by the specific shipping carrier you chose at checkout (USPS, UPS or FedEx). 
    • If billing or address verification is needed, this can delay the processing of your order. 
    • If you choose an expedited shipping option, your order will still be processed within 1- 3 business days. Expedited delivery applies to business days only; Saturday/Sunday or holiday delivery is not applicable to this service.
    • Orders will be processed over the weekend. Please note that Monday 5/29  is a holiday. No orders will be shipped on this day. We will resume shipping on Tuesday, 5/30/2023. 

    DISCLAIMER: All orders require a signature for delivery. Delivery estimates are applicable to the first delivery attempt only. Once the first delivery attempt has been made, please contact your shipping carrier directly for further assistance.

The promo code is not working?

    • Try double-checking the spelling of the code. The promo code is SPRING2023 to save 20% off sitewide.
    • If the code is still not working, please note that only one discount code can be used at once. Feel free to save your Rewards Points or other promotions for future orders! However, you are able to use a gift card and promotions at the same time. 

I accidentally ordered the wrong item, can I update my order?

    • During sale seasons, all orders are processed immediately, so, unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate any changes to an order after it has been placed. Before placing your order, feel free to reach out via at  customercare@heafreehair.com or by phone at 1-877-686-9044. We would be happy to help find the right product to ensure you get the right item the first time around! 
    • Also, be sure to take a look at our  YouTube channel or Instagram for detailed visuals on product information and care tips. 

I entered the wrong shipping address, what do I do?

    • Orders are being processed quickly! So, we are unable to edit or update shipping addresses once the order has been placed. If you entered the incorrect shipping address, please contact the shipping carrier directly to have your package rerouted or held for pickup. You will be able to contact the shipping carrier once you receive your tracking information.

    DISCLAIMER: The customer is responsible for ensuring the correct shipping information is entered before processing their payment. Heat Free Hair is not responsible for any shipping costs or errors due to incorrect shipping information. 

Don't forget to purchase Route Package Protection with your order!

    • Don’t forget to purchase Route Package Protection with your order! 

    Route is a third-party service that protects your package for up to 15 days (restrictions apply)  from the ship date if your package is lost, stolen, or damaged in transit. This is not mandatory, and you can opt out of the coverage at checkout before submitting payment. If you choose to opt out of coverage, Heat Free Hair is not responsible for your package, and you must contact USPS directly for assistance with any shipping issues/concerns.

Can I return or exchange my order?

  • If your order was placed during our 2023 Spring Sale period (5/23/2023- 5/29/2023), all orders hair extensions, hair care product(s), and/or hair tool(s)are final sale if a discount is used, we are unable to accommodate any return/exchange requests.

How many bundles or sets will I need to get the look I want?

  • All of our products are listed in single units. Our wefted hair and clip-ins weigh 4 ounces, and we recommend two bundles or sets for lengths under 18″ and three bundles or sets for lengths 18” and above to achieve desired fullness.

Can I straighten and style Heat Free Hair extensions?

    • Just like natural hair, Heat Free Hair has beautiful styling versatility. You may wear our looks as they come or use heat styling tools to achieve your desired look. Keep in mind that our virgin hair is just as susceptible to heat damage and loss of curl pattern as your own natural hair is. Use a heat protectant when necessary and avoid excessive exposure to straightening tools.

How should you measure in order to determine your wig size?

    • Having trouble deciding what size wig to get? Here are some steps you can follow to find the perfect capsize. You'll need a fabric measuring tape and measure the perimeter of your head, following your hairline as a guide. Place one end of the tape at the nape of your head and go all the way around until the two pieces of the tape meet. The number that you get will coincide with one of the capsizes.

    Small- 18"-20"

    Medium- 20" to 22"

    Large- 22" to 24"

    If you are between sizes, we recommend sizing up. Fit might vary slightly, especially if your natural hair is thick and long.

How to decide which color I should choose?

  • We have recently launched Jet Black as an option in our 4 Signature Collections in wefted hair and clip-ins. The natural virgin color is unprocessed and ranges from a medium to dark brown. The Jet Black color is a true jet black and does not mimic a 1B or natural black. However, our virgin extensions can be professionally colored to achieve your desired look. We recommend using a licensed professional stylist.

My item is out of stock, can I receive the sale promotion when it is back in stock?

  • We are sorry that you were unable to get the product you wanted, but the promotion is only for products that are in stock and can not be applied to future orders. If you were unable to shop this time around, be sure to stay subscribed to our email list for future sales and promotions.

I recently purchased a product, or I missed the sale. Can I still get the discount?

  • We are sorry to hear that you were unable to take advantage of our Spring Sale 2023promotion! We are unable to apply discounts to orders that were placed outside of the sale period, but we encourage you to subscribe to our mailing list to be informed of future sales and promotions.

Can I speak with someone from the customer care team?

    • You need your hair fast! From 5/23/2022- 5/29/2022, all team members will be working hard to ensure we can ship your order as quickly as possible, and we apologize in advance for the long hold times via Live Chat and Phone.
    • You can also send an email to customercare@heatfreehair.com, and someone will respond to your inquiry within 24-48 hours.  
    • We thank you for understanding!

Tape-Ins FAQs

What is the difference between tape-ins and clip-ins?

  • Tape-ins and Clip-ins are both great extension methods that blend easily with your natural hair and provide versatile styling options. Each method provides its own benefits depending on your styling needs:

    • Tape-Ins - Semi-permanent, lightweight, and low-tension. Tape-ins require professional installation and maintenance and can last 4-8 weeks! 
    • Clip-Ins- Semi-protective, non-committal, and great for beginners. Clip-ins can be used for multiple wears with the proper hair care routine!

How many sets of tape-ins do I need for a full look?

  • Each set of tape-ins has 20 tapes, weighing  approximately 50 grams per set. We recommend 4-5 sets for a full look and 2-3 sets to enhance your natural volume and length. 

What lengths are your tape-ins offered in?

  • Our tape-ins are offered in 16”, 20”, and 24” lengths. 

    • 16” - Falls right below your collarbone and perfect for a natural, everyday look.
    • 20” - Falls just past your shoulders and great for ponytails and half-up/half down looks. 
    • 24”- Falls mid back and the perfect length for an ultra glam look and the most styling versatility. 

    These descriptions are applicable to our koils, kurls, and kinks textures only as they are measured in their fully straight state.

How long will my tape-ins last? Are they reusable?

  • With the proper care and maintenance routine, your tape-in installation can last between 4-8 weeks. The timeframe may vary based on the natural rate of your hair growth and styling and maintenance routine. Kinky/curly extensions are washed more often and styled frequently with hair products, so it is recommended to replace the adhesive after each install for best results.  

Can I color my tape-in extensions?

  • Our premium tape-in extensions are offered in their natural, virgin color which ranges from a medium to dark brown. However, the extensions can be professionally colored to achieve your desired look. We recommend using a licensed professional stylist to color your tape-ins to avoid over-processing of the extensions and over-exposure of moisture to the adhesive. 

Can I install tape-ins myself like I do with my Heat Free Hair clip-ins?

  • Our tapes are pre-taped and ready to apply, but we recommend using a licensed professional stylist to install your tape-ins. Installing tape-ins requires the correct technique and knowledge to ensure they are secured properly; evenly distributed for a natural look and not placed too close to the roots to prevent damage. A licensed professional stylist can also thoroughly assess your hair health, before installation to make sure you are the right candidate for tape-ins. 
    Your tape-ins should always be applied to clean, dry hair. 

Can I wash my hair with my tape-ins?

  • Yes, it is important to keep a regular wash routine to extend the length of your installation. Prolonged exposure to moisture and extended periods of product build on the scalp and hair can cause premature removal of the tape-ins. 

How do I maintain my tape-ins?

  • To keep your tape-ins in a flawless condition, we recommend following these care tips: 

    • Use a sulfate-free shampoo and hydrating conditioner, like our P.E.K Fresh Kept Secret Shampoo and New Condition Conditioner. Shampoo is important to remove product and oil build up on the scalp to prevent premature slipping of the tapes. Only apply conditioner directly to your extensions (below the tape-in bond) while detangling and to keep your extensions hydrated. 
    • On wash day, ensure your hair and roots are  thoroughly dried before styling, going to sleep, or heading out for the day. Allowing adequate time for the hair to dry will prevent tangling and matting. 
    • Avoid brushing the hair at the roots/bond of the tapes. We recommend using a gentle detangling brush to detangle from the tips to the bottom of the tape-in bond. 
    • After installation, allow 48-72 hours for the tape-ins to set to avoid slipping/loosening. This includes excessive manipulation and applying water or hair care products at the roots, above the tape-in bond.  
    • Keep regular maintenance and style appointments with a professional stylist to prevent excess pulling, slipping, and proper drying of the tape-ins. 

How do I remove my tape-ins?

  • Tape-ins should only be removed by a licensed professional stylist. Your natural hair is delicately secured between the tapes to create a bond, so professional assistance is necessary to prevent shedding of your natural hair. We do not recommend removing the tape-ins at home. 

I have fine hair. Can I use tape-ins extensions to add volume and length?

  • Yes! Tape-Ins are a great option to add volume and length to finer hair textures. Our 1” tapes are lightweight and flexible, making it very easy to blend between your hair without excess tension or thickness of traditional extensions. 

Should I try tape-ins if I am new to textured extensions?

  • Tape-ins are a great way to add undetectable versatility to your look! However, they require routine maintenance with a professional stylist. If you are new to extensions, we recommend starting with our clip-ins and switching to tape-ins when you are comfortable with at-home styling between your salon visits. Our clip-ins are offered in the same lengths and textures and you can shop them here

Will tape-ins damage my hair?

  • Extensions are a great way to add length, volume, and provide versatile styling options when installed and cared for properly. However, to avoid damaging your hair it is important to ensure your hair is healthy enough for tape-ins and have a licensed professional stylist complete your install and regular maintenance. Following these guidelines will keep your natural hair healthy! 

This was great, but I still don’t know which is the best option for me. Can you help?

Finding the Perfect Hair

Why Heat Free Hair?

  • Heat Free Hair offers 100% virgin hair extensions exclusively for natural textures. More than that, we offer a community of a women, who, like us, want to look beautiful wherever they are in their hair journey. The team behind Heat Free Hair is just like you - passionate about looking good and still feeling like themselves while wearing hair extensions. We’re committed to uncompromised quality in our products and promise to never sacrifice the integrity of our manufacturing for any kind of gain. Our hair has never been chemically altered to create the natural textures that suit you. We believe in both authenticity and innovation, and are constantly striving to meet you where you are along your journey to “beautiful.”

I’ve never worn hair extensions before. How do I know which Heat Free Hair product is right for me?

  • Enhancing your natural beauty can be a beautiful thing! TrueYou, our product finder tool, is designed to help you choose the right Heat Free Hair product based on your lifestyle, needs, curl type and desired look. We recommend starting here to narrow your selection down.

Which collection do you recommend if I have more than one curl pattern?

  • We recommend using the texture of the hair you plan to leave out as a marker for which Heat Free Hair collection to purchase. You can also use True You, our product finder tool, to help you make the best product selection.

Explain the different curl types again, please!

  • Curl typing is a system designed to help you understand the unique look and needs of various hair textures. The chart below outlines the differences in pattern, density and luster for natural textures ranging from 3B to 4C.

Do you offer/sell sample textures, or can I come and see the hair in person at your D.C. office?

  • While our team offices are located in Washington, D.C., we do not currently have a studio that offers sample textures nor do we sell samples. We are, however, more than happy to assist you in making the best product selection! TrueYou, our new product matching tool, helps you find the Heat Free Hair texture and product type that suits you!

How many bundles will I need to get the look I want?

  • We recommend two bundles for lengths under 18″ and three bundles for lengths 18” and above to achieve desired fullness. Heat Free Hair bundles are manufactured full, weighing a total of four ounces (113.4 grams). Bundles that are longer in length tend to have a shorter weft thus requiring more for a full weave installation.

Does the Blow Out Collection revert to a curl pattern when coming in contact with water or moisture?

  • Our Blow Out Collection was designed specifically to achieve a “blown out” natural look. It is both humidity resistant and true to its straight texture. When wet, strands will simply become fluffier until they are blow dried.

Installation & Maintenance

How is Heat Free Hair installed?

  • Installation varies by product type. Our wefted hair does not come in bulk, and requires that each track be sewn in. Heat Free Hair wigs offer Full Cap , U-Part and Lace options with adjustable straps, combs and elastic straps for extra security. Clip-in extensions are made with silicone tipped metal clips and offer an elastic protection band on each piece for the most secure placement.

Can you recommend a stylist to install Heat Free Hair?

  • At this time, we do not have a list of recommended stylists, however we encourage all of our customers to search for a local stylist familiar with natural hair and natural hair extensions.

Can I color Heat Free Hair extensions?

  • Heat Free Hair extensions are offered in their unaltered color state with variations of dark brown and black hues. At this time, we do not offer additional color options or custom coloring services. To make Heat Free Hair extensions fit your desired look, our hair may be bleached or dyed in order to blend with your natural hair. We recommend coloring extensions prior to installation and doing strand tests per bundle/set to. Just like natural hair, bleaching or using color with harsh chemicals may weaken the hair shaft and potentially alter the texture. Heat Free Hair extensions that have been colored require extra love and attention throughout the life of your look. Please be sure to deep condition extensions and use nourishing hair products whenever possible.
    *We recommend that coloring be done by a professional/licensed colorist familiar with natural textures. Heat Free Hair curl patterns are steam processed to create each unique curl pattern. Lifting the hair with high volumes of developer to extremely light colors may alter the integrity of the texture and curl pattern. Heat Free Hair is not responsible for any damage of hair quality or texture as a result of color processing.

Can I straighten and style Heat Free Hair extensions?

  • Just like natural hair, Heat Free Hair has beautiful styling versatility. You may wear our looks as they come, or use heat styling tools to achieve your desired look. Keep in mind that our virgin hair is just as susceptible to heat damage and loss of curl pattern as your own natural hair is. Use a heat protectant when necessary and avoid excessive exposure to straightening tools.

How long will Heat Free Hair last?

  • Our extensions are manufactured with the utmost level of quality and design. The expectant life of your particular hair extension product depends solely on the care you provide your clip-in’s or wig, or the daily maintenance routine of your wefted hair installation. A customized “Care Card” is included with every Heat Free Hair purchase with instructions to help you maintain your look for as long as possible.

Can I wear Heat Free Hair while swimming in salt water or chlorine water?

  • You can swim in our hair extensions, however we recommend wearing a snug-fitted swim cap to protect the hair. Just like your natural hair, salt water and chlorine can strip it of moisture, causing potential drying and tangling.

Purchasing, Shipping & Returns

I ordered online, but want to cancel my purchase. Is it too late?

  • All orders are final sale. Once the order is placed, we are unable to cancel your order. However, we do offer exchanges and returns for store credit within 7 days of your delivery date.

It is recommended to allow ample time or delivery before special occasions, travel plans, and hair appointments.

Do you offer military or stylist discounts?

  • At this time, we do not offer any discounts to select groups or businesses.

Do you offer wholesale opportunities?

  • Because of the nature of our business and the desire to maintain control of the quality and integrity of our hair, we do not authorize the resale of our hair extensions.

What is Route Package Protection and how does it help me?

  • Route Package Protection is a service offered at checkout to protect your package if it is lost, stolen, or damaged in transit. If Route is selected, and an issue occurs, Route will either replace the package or issue you a refund minus the cost of shipping.
