Save prep time with pre-stretched braiding hair! Pre-stretched (aka pre-feathered or pre-tapered braiding hair) comes down to a natural taper at the ends, as opposed to the blunt ends in a normal pack. Our pre-stretched kanekalon braiding hair is low heat, hot water set, and flame retardant. This hair does not have an alkaline lye coating on it, but if you've got a sensitive scalp, it never hurts to do an ACV rinse anyway!

Length: 28" folded, 56" unfolded (71 cm folded, 142 cm unfolded).

Weight: 3.0 ounces (85 g).

Texture: Kinky jumbo braid texture. This hair has a fairly standard jumbo braid crimp to it. It is not as soft as our 26" pre-stretched hair, and it is not quite as kinky as our regular, unstretched IKS brand kk jumbo braid.

Brand: I Kick Shins.

Color: Waterslide Ombré.

This color is a blend of Cornflower Blue, Pastel Lilac, and Pastel Pink at the top, just the Pastel Lilac and Pastel Pink in the middle, and solid Light Pink down at the ends.

Color Comparisons:

The last product picture is a color comparison shot that shows Periwinkle Blue on the left, Waterslide Ombré in the middle, and Periwinkle Purple 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.

If you'd like us to make recommendations from a photo, email us at 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
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, 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!
