Bamboo Twist braid is a kinky, sectioned type of braiding/crochet hair that loosely resembled puffy, kinky, untwisted dreadlocks. It can be used to make krinklepuff falls, braided or crochetted into your hair as is, or used to make extra sturdy braids or twists. Bamboo Twist looks very similar to marley braid, except it's got tiny ringlet curls at the ends instead of staying kinky, and some colors (but not all) feel a bit softer. Dusky Pink is one of the colors that feels about the same as marley braid.
Length: 14" folded, 28" unfolded (35 cm folded, 70 cm unfolded).
Weight: 3.0 ounces (85 g).
Texture: Sectioned hair with a very kinky, fluffy texture. Dusky Pink is a tiny bit softer than marley braid, but not as soft as some other Bamboo Twist colors like Electric Purple and Magenta.
Color: Dusky Pink (mix of 1B Off Black, 2 Darkest Brown, pastel purple, and very light, pastel pink at the top, with the pink becoming more prominent towards the ends).
Dusky Pink is also the color that the model on the tags (the round ones inside of the packaging) is wearing.
The last two pictures show Dusky Pink glowing under blacklight. Portions of the lighter pink glow, so the top part where it's blended has little glowing strands mixed in, and the bottom glows more consistently throughout.
We do our best to take careful photographs of our products that show their appearance accurately. However, every screen is calibrated differently, and different types of lighting can affect color appearance, so the way a color appears on your device may not be exactly how it looks in person.
We recommend ordering color samples to ensure an accurate match.
We also offer a free color matching service. For custom color matching, just send a sample of your hair--or anything that you want us to match the color of--in a plastic baggy to:
I Kick Shins
690 Roberts Rd #383
Pacifica, CA 94044
Please make sure to put the sample in a plastic bag along with a note indicating what product you want your sample matched with (for example "kanekalon jumbo braid" or "human weaving hair") and your e-mail address in the envelope. When we receive it, we'll match it up and let you know what comes closest.
Please do not put your e-mail address inside the plastic bag. The only thing that should be in the bag is the hair sample.
We are also happy to take color comparison pictures for you. If you'd like to see a few similar colors side by side, contact us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!
