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 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: Countess (1B Off Black at the top transitioning down into a deep, dark red in the center, and burgundy at the tips). This color is not a blend; the individual strands are black and the top and colored at the tips.
The fourth picture is a color comparison that shows 1B/BG Red Wine kk jumbo braid on the left, Countess high heat kanekalon in the middle, and Burgundy kk jumbo braid on the right.
The fifth picture shows Countess on the left, and Black Cherry, Dark Cherry Red, and Rose from top to bottom on the right. Black Cherry is henlon braid, and the other colors are all high heat kanekalon.
Thanks to customer Mind Games for the last picture of her wearing box braids made from Countess!
