Kanekalon Jumbo Braid
Professional quality, easy sealing 100% kanekalon jumbo braid hair. Perfect for dreads, braids, twists, curls, waves, and curly dreads!
Most of our customers use around 6-10 bags of kanekalon jumbo braid for a full head of medium-sized box braids, and 8-12 for a full head of dreads.
To make dreads from kanekalon, backcomb the hair, twist it, and then seal with with a steamer, steam from a kettle, or boiling water. Don't use dry heat like a curling iron or straightener; dry heat will cause the plastic to melt.
Kanekalon seals at around 200°F. If you're at a high enough altitude where water boils at a lower temperature than that, we recommend using steam.
Some of our kanekalon jumbo braid products have an alkaline lye coating on them, and others do not. If you have a sensitive scalp, we recommend doing an ACV rinse before installing your extensions.
