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.
Boiling water generally isn't hot enough to seal high heat kanekalon. 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: Light Sea Green. Light Sea Green is a pale, greenish aqua shade.
The colors in the third picture from left to right are Mint Green, Vintage Pink, Light Sea Green, and Light Pink.
The fourth picture shows Mint Green on the left, Light Sea Green in the center, and Basil on the right.
The fifth picture shows Sky Blue on the left, Light Sea Green in the center, and Light Petrol Green on the right. Sky Blue and Light Petrol Green are both kk jumbo braid, not high heat, which is why the texture is noticeably kinkier than Light Sea Green.
The sixth shows Aqua on the left, Light Sea Green in the middle, and Mint Green on the right. all three colors are high heat kk.
In the last picture, Mikaela's gorgeous icy braids are made from a mix of Light Sea Green and Baby Blue, with some 1B Off Black accents.
