What is the difference between Henlon, High Temperature Fibre and Kanekalon jumbo and pre-stretched?
We have done alot of research into hair types and we label all of our products honestly and accurately. Whilst most manufacturers claim their hair is Kanekalon, the truth is most of it is not. Manufacturers need to have a licence to distribute Kanekalon. Most do not, so they sell Henlon and High Temperature fibre instead.
We have sourced the genuine Kanekalon manufacturer and related suppliers to ensure we can supply the correct hair to our customers.
The easiest test (though please don't attempt unless you are an adult or have an adult present), is outside with a bucket of water. Holding with BBQ tongs. Light the end of the hair. If it extinguishes itself, then it is Kanekalon. If it does not, then it is another type of fibre like Henlon or High temperature fibre.
The above does NOT mean that other fibres are bad, quite the opposite, you have choice... it simply means that if you require the hair to shrink and seal with with low heat, or you normally use a lighter to seal the ends of your braids, use Kanekalon. If you regularly make dreadlocks, crochet dreads or braids, you can use any hair type happily and set the shape with boiling water or a rubber band.
Henlon is a high heat resistance fibre usually used for wig making. It will not shrink with heat, but it will set in place. If making dreadlocks with Henlon, it is best to use a damp cloth and straightening irons rolled around the dread and cloth to create a hot steam seal. It is also very good for crochet styles. This fibre is NOT flame retardant.
High Temperature Fibre is a Chinese high heat resistance fibre that has a similar look. crimp and feel to Kanekalon, but is slightly more shiny and is best used for crochet dreads for extra hold. It will not shrink with heat, but will hold it's shape if sealed with straighteners over a damp cloth or being dipped in boiling water. This fibre is NOT flame retardant.
Kanekalon is a low heat sealing, flame retardant fibre, that will seal easily in hot water. It can be braided, dreaded, or used for a variety of protective styles and avant garde work. If making dreads it is recommended to seal them in hot water or with a steamer. This fibre is flame retardant.
Jumbo braid will be all one length, and pre-stretched jumbo braid will taper where the hair has been ready layered for you. Pre-stretched works well for braiding and ombre shades where you want a taper and to use Kanekalon hair.
Does jumbo braid have a chemical smell? How do I remove that?
Is your Human Hair Range of good quality?
Yes, Our overseas partners ethically source beautiful quality hair from Russia and Mongolia. It is 100% human remy hair, from one donor. Double drawn with the cuticle aligned and intact. This hair will last you 1-2 years with good care.
How many packets of Human Hair do I need for a full head?
We recommend 2-3 packets or equivalent 100-150gm for a full head application depending on hair thickness.
Why does the human hair range take 5-7 days to ship?
We are working closely with our distribution partners to be able to have all these products in stock and available for next day dispatch in future. In the meantime, they are supplying us on an as needed basis with the fastest shipping possible.
This is great for you as our customers, as it allows us to offer you everything, rather than just a small range.
When items are stocked, you will see the dispatch estimates on each product listing alter.
We'd advise colour matching your clients and booking them 2 weeks in advance. This is fairly common practice and will allow sufficient time for the hair to arrive.
NOTE dispatch times are estimated on each product listing. They do not include shipping time.
Are your hair care and beauty ranges vegan?
We produce our hair care and beauty products in the UK with a manufacturer who sources only products that are non animal. To the best of their knowledge, the ingredients used are suitable for vegans. However, we have only labelled those products where we are absolutely sure of this, and highly recommend that you research the ingredients yourself prior to purchase if you are concerned, as these can constantly change. Our products are not tested on animals.
We endeavour to make all products vegan where possible.
