  • To find the perfect capsize you'll need is a fabric measuring tape. You'll be measuring 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 capsizes, we recommend sizing up.

  • Coloring*

    Heat Free Hair extensions are offered in their natural 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 to any color to blend with your natural hair. We recommend coloring extensions prior to installation. 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 to hair quality or texture as a result of color processing.

    Heat Styling & Straightening*

    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.

  • 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.

    For full coverage products like our Headband Wigs, HD Lace, and Edge Collection Wigs, you can choose the curl type and texture of your choice since minimal to no leave-out is required for styling or blending.

Wow, I am so impressed by the for Kinks Empress wig! It matches my hair to a “t”. I’m happy with this Christmas present to myself After washing and conditioning there was little to no shedding, I’m talking at most 4 strands! Also, the unit is incredibly light, after trying on, it really just feels like I’m wearing a satin cap. I’m really looking forward to wearing out. Even accounting for the high volume notification, shipping was fast. I received my unit less than a week after placing my order. Packaging is exquisite and I love the hand-addressed company/product info that came with the wig. I think I’m going to be a HFHM fan for life!

This is my second HFH purchase. My first purchase was the For Kurls Empress U-part Wig and I so impressed with the quality of hair I purchased the For Kinks Empress Wig full cap unit. This wig is a lot different than my For Kurls in that it requires a little more maintenance. The hair mimics 4b/4c to the “t” and like 4 b/4c hair the texture is beautiful. The volume of the unit is really full and the length is little longer than my For Kurls Empress wig which is probably due to the difference in curl patterns. The hair does shed a little during washing and conditioning which can be expected with this curl pattern but the shedding is not excessive. The unit itself is well constructed and comfortable to wear. I have worn this wig as a wash and go, a twist out, and braid out and always receive compliments on my “natural hair.” All this said, the quality of the hair is impeccable and step above the rest. I will be purchasing from HFH again.

I was looking for something

I was looking for something to give my natural hair a break, especially during the colder weather. I came across this line and loved how natural the wigs looked. After purchasing the Royal Empress wig, I have no regrets. I dyed it so that it blended more with my hair and the textures matched up perfectly. The wig was a bit fuller than I expected, but I could live with that. This wig will definitely help my achieve my hair length goals and I plan on wearing it throughout the year!
