The first and number one extension line providing Black women with hair that perfectly matches their kinky, coily and curly textures, will soon debut its newest line, The Blow Out Collection. Creator and owner, Ngozi Opara, felt like it was time to create a line of hair that offered women the look of a full, amazing blowout without the fuss. “Every woman loves a great blow out, but many avoid the style due to maintenance concerns such as heat damage and unpredictable weather”, said Opara.
After a year of working on the new line and intense development, the Blow Out Collection is ready, just in time for summer. Available June 30th, women will have their choice at two colors: one natural color that hasn’t been chemically changed and a trendy seasonal ombre. This line follows the immense success of its debut in 2012. Back then, Opara had created wefted hair, closures, wigs and clip-in extensions that blended perfectly with Black hair textures. From 3B to 4C, Black women all over the world found a way to wear weave as a protective hairstyle, without creating damage to their left out hair, or leave out as stylists call it.
“There was a point in time when I was perming people’s leave out or putting a lot of heat on it and I really felt like a hypocrite. I thought, “Here I am teaching these women about healthy styling and I’m pretty much frying their leave out, just to get it to blend with hair that doesn’t match their texture. So that was really my inspiration. I felt like there has to be a way for these women to go heat free and still use weave as a way to protect and grow their hair”, says Opara.
From there, she created the first 100 percent virgin hair extension line that was designed to perfectly blend with the various textures of Black women’s hair. And get this: she’s only 27 years old.
Heat Free Hair has not only become a hair extension line, but a movement. Helping to connect women all over the world who are embracing their natural hair and embarking on healthy hair growth, Opara is setting the bar high for hair extension lines that cater to Black women.
