Professional quality 100% kanekalon braiding hair. Great for braids and crochet dreads! This type of kanekalon has a very high resistance to heat 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).
Because high heat kanekalon has a smoother texture and comes in smaller bags 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).
Weight: 2.8 ounces (80 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: Dark Blue.

Dark Blue is considerably darker than Navy Blue, and although the Midnight Blue blend contains black, Dark Blue is darker than Midnight Blue overall.
