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: Marine (black at the top fading down into navy blue and bright sky blue 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 Marine on the left and Lagoon on the right.
The fifth picture shows Marine on the left, Bluebonnet on the top right, and Baby Blue on the bottom right.
The sixth has Marine on the left again, and 1B Off Black, Navy Blue, and Sky Blue kk jumbo braid on the right.
The last picture shows the light blue at the ends of Marine under blacklight. It reacts a little bit, but doesn't glow very bright. The darker blue and black are not UV reactive.
