High Heat Kanekalon Braid, Dark Blue

High heat kanekalon is a type of synthetic fiber used for wig making, braids, and dreads. It's quite durable and tough, and has a heat resistance of 250°F (120°C), sometimes higher. It's much softer and silkier than kanekalon and can be a bit slippery. It comes in a considerably wider range of colors than regular kk, though, so sometimes it's worth the effort to work with!

High heat kanekalon does not shrink down like regular kanekalon and will 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).

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: Dark Blue. This is a dark, inky blue with some slight purple undertones.

The third picture shows Navy Blue kk jumbo braid on the left, Dark Blue high heat kanekalon in the middle, and Midnight Blue kk jumbo braid on the right. Dark Blue is considerably darker than Navy Blue, and although the Midnight Blue blend contains black, Dark Blue is darker than Midnight Blue overall.

In the fourth picture, the colors shown from left to right are Space Cadet, Night Sky, Dark Blue, and Royal Navy.  All four colors are high heat kk.

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
United States

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!
