So, you all know IHOP. It’s a pretty famous and inexpensive pancake house that seems to have a location in every city in America. Similar to Denny’s, Waffle House, and any other late night breakfast place you can think of, IHOP is the place my friends and I go to after we leave the club. Though the food isn’t spectacular, IHOP is the place to be whenever you need to knock the edge off from the last drink you may have had. And before you get there, you probably know what you’re going to get, how long it’s going to take and just how it’s going to taste. It does the job without too much hassle. And to be honest, the Rootie-Tootie Fresh And Fruity isn’t all that bad. LOL! In the same way, E Indian Hair is just like the IHOP. It may not be the best thing in town. But it’s reliable, there when you need it and definitely get’s the job done.
The selection of hair that E Indian Hair (eIndianHair.com) has to offer is pretty good. Virgin straight, wavy and curly are abundant in many different lengths. And just recently, the company has included Indian bulk hair for braiding and virgin Malaysian hair for weaving. The ordering process is simple and easy. You can do it online or via telephone. A 1-800 number is provided on their website, which allows customers to express concerns and place special orders. Because of this, their customer service is impeccable, when compared to similar hair companies.
As far as virgin hair is concerned, E Indian Hair is extremely affordable. This company takes pride in their Buy-One-Get-One free deal, where every purchase you make affords you an extra pack of hair. My preferred hair, 24in. Indian wavy, only costs me $210 for 2 packs, or 8oz. of hair. Other companies with similar quality hair charge $279 for just one pack, or 3.5-4oz. of hair. One way E Indian Hair keeps their cost down is with the packaging. There is none at all. The hair is simply placed into a clear plastic bag and then tossed into an envelope. There are no special tubes, golden bags or shiny boxes with this hair. So in essence, all you’re paying for is the hair.
Speaking of shipping, I also love the shipping times. Their free shipping option guarantees the hair will be delivered to you within 8-14 days. However, every time I’ve ordered from them using this option, I’ve received my hair between 3-7 days. Once the hair arrives, the quality will be evident. The hair is virgin with no dyes or chemicals and ready for install. Though a co-wash is suggested, I have always skipped this process since I usually bleach it in my signature Ombre style.
As far as the hair itself, it really is quality. I’m able to flat iron it straight, curl it in ringlets, swim, work-out and do whatever I want without an issue. A simple wash will put the hair back to it’s original state with lustrous waves and a healthy bounce. Also, the hair isn’t too silky and blends easily with my 3b textured hair.
Like most hair, it is suggested that you seal your wefts. Though I was able to wear this hair for 4 weeks without having sealed my wefts, during the 5th week, I began to experience substantial shedding. During this time, I removed my hair, gave it a solid wash and deep condition treatment and then sealed my wefts. I haven’t had an issue with shedding ever since.
Tangles are another non-issue. Despite the fact that I bleached my hair, I have never had an issue with tangles. Even after a heavy workout, my wavy hair typically falls into its regular shape, just as it should.
But there are a few con’s (which brings me to the IHOP comparison).
Though IHOP will fill your belly in no time, it’s still not a 5-star restaurant. In the same way, though E Indian Hair does it’s job, there are still a few things that make it a little less than stellar. Though the ends are not split, I did have to cut off about a half an inch just so they will look even. And after a bleaching, the hair became rather dry. This wasn’t too much of an issue after a solid deep condition. But it was an issue nonetheless. There are other hair companies out there who provide quality hair that can be dyed and bleached several times without the hair becoming dry. I remember a time when E Indian Hair used to be one of those companies (I still have some of that hair!). But as of right now, it is not.
Also, the shedding bothers me. Though the hair is practically shed-proof after the wefts have been sealed (I use Fray Check) I still remember a time when I didn’t have to seal my wefts at all.
Finally in my last purchase, I noticed a few gray hairs. A few gray hairs can actually be taken as a good sign as it represents hair that is virgin and untouched. However, it can be unsightly. Because I bleach my hair, this isn’t really an issue for me. But it may be an issue for those who aren’t comfortable with color. Though a minor problem, I feel that a quality company that provides quality hair should take a little more care with collecting their hair from younger donors.
All of these issues actually scare me because it is a sign that the quality of E Indian Hair is decreasing, which is typical of a growing hair company. I hope and pray that this is not the case. But I am keeping my eye out on them just incase they do.
With that said, the pro’s definitely outweigh the con’s. All-in-all, E Indian Hair is one of my most trusted hair companies and is definitely on my list of solid hair care companies. If you haven’t given them a try, you definitely should.

Introducing THE WEAVE PAGES!
I have a feeling that no one loves weave more than I do. But the problem with reviewing every weave company is that I only have one head. So, I can’t review them all in a timely manner. That’s where YOU all come in. Click here to find out more!
