100% synthetic glow in the dark braiding hair. This hair looks, feels, and behaves very similarly to our Festival Braid braiding hair.
Glow Braid will glow brighter if you let it "charge" in the sun. This color needs quite a bit of light to reach its full glowing potential; we recommend putting it in direct sunlight, and hanging it up if possible so that the sun can hit it all over. If you lay it out flat, the hair on the bottom won't glow very brightly (or at all).
Boiling water usually isn't quite hot enough to seal Glow Braid. It also will not shrink down like kanekalon, and will stay quite soft even when it's set. You can more learn about working with high heat braiding hair here.
Weight: 2.8 oz (80g).
Length: 24" folded, 48" unfolded (60 cm folded, 120 cm unfolded).
Texture: Smooth, only very slightly kinky yaki texture. Due to the smoother texture, these packs are less voluminous than packs of kk jumbo braid in the same weight. If you're using it for box braids, we recommend getting a couple more packs than you normally would use; most of our customers use around 10-14 packs of this type of hair for a full head of box braids.
Brand: I Kick Shins.
Color: Electric Mint: cool, bright minty green in normal lighting that glows cool neon green in the dark.
This color is also UV reactive, and glows in cool blueish green under blacklight. It's also a little bit more green compared to the Glow Jumbo Braid color with the same name.

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.
If you'd like us to make recommendations from a photo, email us at email@example.com and we'll be happy to help. Or for color matching in person, 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, something like "kanekalon jumbo braid" or "RastAfri marley braid") and your email 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!
