Highlight Braid is a style of kanekalon jumbo braid where the individual strands of hair are multicolored. It's similar to our multicolored high heat kanekalon, but it seals much easier with boiling water or steam. Perfect for making dread extensions, box braids, and twists!
Highlight Braid can sometimes bleed when used with leave-in oils, especially those containing tea tree or orange oil. If you normally use conditioning oil on your natural hair or scalp, stick with regular kk jumbo braid or high heat multicolored kanekalon instead -- or do a deep cleanse to remove any oil products from your natural hair prior to installing Highlight Braid.
Length: 24" folded, 48" unfolded (60 cm folded, 120 cm unfolded).
Weight: 2.0 ounces (56 g).
Texture: Kinky jumbo braid texture, similar to RastAfri Classic Braid and kinkier than RastAfri Freed'm Silky Braid. This hair is softer than most other types of kk jumbo braid, but it's not as slippery as high heat kk.
Brand: RastAfri Highlight Braid.
Color: 1B Off Black with Wintergreen Tips (labeled as "GT1B/Mint" on the packaging).
Please note that RastAfri changed this color in March 2018 and it is now lighter and much cooler/bluer than before.
The last two pictures are color comparisons, showing the following from left to right:
- Spearmint, 1B Off Black with Wintergreen Tips, 1B Off Black with Mint Green Tips. Spearmint is another Highlight Braid color, and 1B Off Black with Mint Green Tips is made from high heat kanekalon.
- Dark Mint Green, 1B Off Black with Wintergreen Tips, Petrol Green. Dark Mint Green and Petrol Green are both I Kick Shins brand kk jumbo braid colors, not Highlight Braid.
