What do you think about this video?

Rachele Priest: wld u make a set for me im in Arkansas USA. thin, semi long, i have pics. i really love how urs look. I'm srill researching hwhich install method i will use cuz my natural hair color is copper from well water and got dark brown/grey roots LOL´╗┐

MidnightShadowed: Nice links.

Lara Schilling: You're welcome!

Anti-Corrupted Government: Thanks.

Lara Schilling: Well, the KK fibre reacts to heat better and is much softer and more "real" feeling.

Jennifer Thorpe: I usually use the k hair, but I didn't know there was a difference between useable and non useable synthetics. Now I know why it looks so....thanks again.

Lara Schilling: You know, I thought that now days, Kanekalon braid is so widely available that this video might just be redundant! LOL. But glad it is still helping people buy the right stuff!

Jennifer Thorpe: Thank u! I thought to save money. Id get synthetic hair for braiding. From the dollar store.,but it isn't good for anything. And now I have a million braids and dipped them and it isn't the same. I hate it. Al thank you.

Lara Schilling: Yes :) I ended up buying my wefts directly from a manufacturer in China. I needed to purchase 10 packs of one colour (100g per bag). Not sure how much weave length there is as I haven't opened one to check. Try Aliexpress (Alibaba's sister site to buy smaller quantities). I'm making a lace front, so I have to fill the back with weave and add loose hair to the front (on the lace). There are plenty of tutorials on wigmaking here on YouTube!

Snowh1t31: Just a question I want to make my own wig can I use 100% Kanekalon synthetic fiber, if so do you know where a reliable place is to buy the wefts or loose fiber to make my own, also have you done this or can you show us how to do this thank you!

Lara Schilling: You're welcome :D

Andrea Phipps: Thank you so much!

Lara Schilling: You're welcome! :)

gothiquebelle: :D ok. Thank u so much!

Lara Schilling: Afrelle is softer than Kanekalon, yes, but it only comes in limited colours (and some unique colours, like sweet red, which is so hard to make dreads with!) I don't really know about the difference when it is braided, because I come from a synthetic dread background. I just know from research that a lot of people prefer to use Afrelle on kids, because it's softer. KK when braided can look natural (if it's the same colour as your hair).

gothiquebelle: so if i want really soft braids i should order the afrelle rastafri 100% kanekalon one from cypherlox? or should i just get the 100% kanekalon jumbo braid? i want natural looking braids not really fake ones :/

Lara Schilling: You can use 100% Synthetic, but for sake of not wanting your hands to be ripped up, 100% Kanekalon would be your best bet. Synth fibres will probably slip out of your hair quicker than they would in Afro hair, because Euro hair is so soft in comparison, but maintenance wouldn't be much more than a wash every week to keep the scalp clean. Maybe sleeping with a silk scarf to protect the braids.

gothiquebelle: Hey I have a question. What fibre or type of hair do u think I should get to do box braids? I have euro hair and everything I google is applying to African American hair and I want to know how to take care of the braids and which type of fibre to order. It's my first time braiding all my hair with fake hair added in. Please reply! Thank u
