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. RastAfri's Pre-Stretched 3X Highlight Braid is made from the same multicolored, dippable fiber as regular Highlight Braid and comes in extra large triple packs. It's also a few inches longer than most standard packs of jumbo braid.
Highlight Braid can sometimes bleed when used with leave-in oils, especially those containing tea tree or orange oil. If you normally use conditioning oil on your natural hair or scalp, stick with regular kk jumbo braid or high heat multicolored kanekalon instead -- or do a deep cleanse to remove any oil products from your natural hair prior to installing Highlight Braid.
Length: 27" folded, 54" unfolded (68.5 cm folded, 137 cm unfolded).
Weight: 6.35 ounces (180 g), divided up evenly into 3 bundles. This is equivalent to 3 regular packs of Highlight Braid.
Texture: Kinky jumbo braid texture, similar to RastAfri Classic Braid and kinkier than RastAfri Freed'm Silky Braid. This hair is softer than most other types of kk jumbo braid, but it's not as slippery as high heat kk. It is the same fiber as regular Highlight Braid.
Brand: RastAfri 3X Highlight Braid.
Color: Cupcake (labeled as "3T613/L.PK/LIACPP" on the packaging). This color is Platinum Blonde at the top and transitions into Candyfloss followed by Neon Magenta down at the ends.

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 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
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!
