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: T5127 Electric Teal.
The third picture shows Electric Teal on the left and Blue Raspberry on the right. Blue Raspberry is a little darker and more blue than Electric Teal.
The fourth picture shows Turquoise, Electric Teal, and Light Petrol Green. Electric Teal is brighter and a little greener than Turquoise, and blue than Light Petrol Green. Turquoise and Light Petrol Green are regular kk jumbo braid, not high heat.
The last picture shows Electric Teal under blacklight. It reacts very strongly and glows as a bright sky blue color.
