Professional quality 100% kanekalon jumbo braid hair. Great for dreads, braids, twists, curls, waves, and curly dreads! This type of kanekalon has a very high resistance to heat (similar to ShapeShifter Monofiber) and tends to stay quite soft even when it's set.
We recommend using high heat kanekalon for braids; for dreads, you may get better results making transitionals 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. High heat kanekalon 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).
Length: 24" folded, 48" unfolded (60 cm folded, 120 cm unfolded).
Weight: 3.5 ounces (100 g).
Texture: Smooth, only very slightly kinky yaky texture. High heat kanekalon is very soft and somewhat slippery compared to regular kanekalon.
Brand: I Kick Shins.
Color: 1B Off Black with Nickel Grey Tips. This color is not a blend; the individual strands are black and the top and colored at the tips.
The Nickel Grey at the tips is darker than Cool Grey high heat kanekalon and Solid Grey kanekalon jumbo braid; it's close to 44 Gunmetal Grey kanekalon jumbo braid, except Nickel Grey is a solid color whereas 44 Gunmetal Grey is a blend.
