Henlon hair is a durable fiber commonly used for making wigs, and has a very high resistance to heat (similar to ShapeShifter Monofiber) and tends to stay quite soft even when it's set. It looks and feels almost identical to high heat kanekalon.
We recommend using henlon for braids; for dreads, you may get better results using from regular kanekalon. In any case, this hair will seal softer and squishier.
We recommend using a steamer or a wet wash cloth and straightener to seal dreads. Henlon is best suited for crochet dreads. For braids, it's best to seal the ends with rubber bands or thread, or use a damp cloth/straightener (like with dreads).
Because henlon has a smoother texture than kk jumbo braid, it is also less voluminous. We recommend using around 20-50% more bags than you normally would with kk jumbo braid, depending on the style.
Length: 24" folded, 48" unfolded (60 cm folded, 120 cm unfolded).
