High Heat Kanekalon Braid, Petrol Green

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: Very slightly kinky jumbo braid texture. This hair is more crimped than most of the other high heat colors, but not as crimped as regular kk jumbo braid.

Brand: I Kick Shins.

Color: Petrol Green (blend of Royal Blue, Blue Teal, and Emerald Green). This color is a little bit darker than the kk jumbo braid and marley braid colors with the same name.

In the second picture, nï ‘Love is wearing braids made from Petrol Green high heat kk.  There's also some 1B Off Black with Ocean Green Tips hiding in there, but it's a little hard to see :)

The last three product pictures are color comparison shots that show the following:

  • Petrol Green high heat kk on the left and Petrol Green kk jumbo braid on the right
  • Ocean Green on the left, Petrol Green in the middle, and Blue Teal on the right. All three colors are high heat kk.
  • Petrol Green high heat kk on the left, and Royal Blue, Turquoise, and Emerald Green kk jumbo braid from top to bottom on the right.

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!
