100% synthetic polyprophelene glow in the dark braiding hair. This hair is white under normal light and glows bright green in the dark. It will glow brighter if you let it "charge" in the sun or under a bright light a bit.
Weight: A large size bag has the same volume as a standard package of jumbo braid; it weighs less because of the shorter length. Medium is half the volume of a standard bag, and small is one quarter of the volume. You'll need around 6-10 large size bags for a full head of extensions.
- Small: 0.44 oz (12.5 g)
- Medium: 0.875 oz (25 g)
- Large: 1.75 oz (50 g)
Length: 12" folded, 24" unfolded (30 cm folded, 60 cm unfolded).
Texture: Slightly kinky yaky texture. The coating on this type of hair has a sort of powdery texture and the strands are a bit stringy because of it; before use, we recommend doing an ACV rinse to remove the coating, then combing it once it's dry.
Color: White in regular lighting, and glows neon green in the dark. This color is also UV reactive and will turn light greenish yellow under a blacklight.
Care Instructions: Since this hair isn't kanekalon, dreads made entirely from it may not hold up as well over time, but it will work for streaks or blends. The dread in the pictures was sealed with boiling water and laid out flat to dry on a towel until it cooled. It was a little bit fragile when it was still hot (looked like it would unravel) but it stiffened up a bit once it cooled off.
Unlike most types of 100% synthetic braiding hair, glow in the dark hair melts under an open flame similar to kanekalon; it does not burn or turn black.
Packaging: If you order 2 or more bundles of the same size and length, they may be packaged together in 1 bag. The hair will still be separated and individually bundled by rubber bands inside of the packaging, and any combined packaging will be clearly labeled so you can see that the full amount is inside :)

We do our best to take careful photographs of our products that show their appearance accurately. However, every screen is calibrated differently, and different types of lighting can affect color appearance, so the way a color appears on your device may not be exactly how it looks in person.
We recommend ordering color samples to ensure an accurate match.
We also offer a free color matching service. For custom color matching, just send a sample of your hair--or anything that you want us to match the color of--in a plastic baggy to:
I Kick Shins
690 Roberts Rd #383
Pacifica, CA 94044
Please make sure to put the sample in a plastic bag along with a note indicating what product you want your sample matched with (for example "kanekalon jumbo braid" or "human weaving hair") and your e-mail address in the envelope. When we receive it, we'll match it up and let you know what comes closest.
Please do not put your e-mail address inside the plastic bag. The only thing that should be in the bag is the hair sample.
We are also happy to take color comparison pictures for you. If you'd like to see a few similar colors side by side, contact us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!
