Lara Schilling: @yikesAnTuAn Yes. Try an Afro/Carribean braiding shop in your area.
AaronVernonFOP: I just put a kanekalon dread in yesterday. I've only showered with it once
and it's sturdy and looks very nice but for some reason it smells like
mildew for some reason.... have you had/know about kanekalon dreads
smelling bad? Please get back to me. thanks
Lara Schilling: @howlingserenity They sell both. You are talking about Cypherlox, correct?
On her site, there's a section for dreads (where you can order them) and an
online shop where you can buy hair materials (LOXshop). If you're after
hair, you choose which colour you want and press "add to cart". Adjust how
many bags you want of that colour in the cart.
Elilith666: Hi! Please, can you tell me...Where is the diference between 100% kanekalon
called only "braid" and the synthetic kanekalon you have used, the jumbo
braid? The seller told me, that kanekalon braid is better than synthetic
kanekalon, because it didn't "shine" so much and looks more like real hair.
But, when I looked on the internet, everybody from outland recommends
synthetic jumbo braid. And, on the other hand, I can't find on the internet
that kanekalon braid, which is available in my country..
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 :/
bringingzexyback: Oh wow thank you so much! So helpful ^ ^ So here's a question. Toyokalen is
better for synthetic wigs if you want it to be able to seal, right? This
isn't for a dreds, this is for a free fall wig. And then Kanekalon is just
a bit lower than yes? But if you don't need it to seal or need to be able
to back track on it the synthetic fiber shouldn't be awful, right? I mean
it has that sheen but if it's less expensive it shouldn't be awful right?
Lara Schilling: @LuwBren Haha thank you :)
freak7koRn: 3 people are pee pee
Lara Schilling: @PHSMustangSAXPlayer I don't hate real dreads, I love them! I just don't
have the hair type that will lock up easily. It's too fine and soft. Synth
dreads are very different to real ones, but they are still partially made
with the same process of natural dreads.
bang3rachi: Haha, I thought so! I still have it hanging up behind my door somewhere, it
was the best. Thanks for the video, I'm using it as a reference constantly!
Kimi Howard: i use afrelle RastAfri for my box braids feels so good as soft white person
hair seals like a dream braids dont come out.. and i get it for $3.69 AUD
.i bought some off Aussie on Ebay said they were kanekalon but had to have
been PP it was terrible. good video.. im looking at dreads next so im
guessing you have dready vids ill go check out..
Lara Schilling: It's not braided, jumbo braid doesn't come braided, it's loose hair used
for braids. Yes it is frizzy, because it's supposed to match the texture of
African hair :) If you feel that it's harder to work with, you might want
to consider other options. I have a few store links in the description. Use
the USA based ones (like I do) for the cheapest rates. I had been making
dreads for a while, and I have made a few thousand in my time. Doesn't
happen overnight, keep practising!
Andrea Phipps: Thank you so much!
Sarabii69: @BeckyAngelix I live in Canada too. And I called a few hair supply stores,
a few of them said they had Kanekalon. I'm going to check them out today!
You should try giving a few a shout... Good luck!
Lara Schilling: @SheIsNirvana You can, but some Toyokalon doesn't react to heat as well as
LuwBren: I love your accent :)
Lara Schilling: No worries :)
Lara Schilling: @Shiyiou They make an awesome sound :P
Lara Schilling: @bang3rachi Haha, awesome. I wanted the pink one but mum picked the green.
It grew on me. I still have it. It's in immaculate condition and I wear it
all the time in winter. Thanks for watching!
PHSMustangSAXPlayer: @DagGirl i understand that but EVERYBODY'S hair kan lock up... if yuo stop
combing and brushing and washing yuor hair for a year itll lock up lol...
then yuo just gotta maintain it after that... but i was sayin ive seen
other videos with ppl with real dreads talkkin junk about the synthetic ones
quitejaded: I clicked your video as a black girl about to do senegalese twists trying
to learn more about the extensions the braider will use. You know so much
more about braids than your black youtuber counterparts lol
Lara Schilling: @millicent1990 Online. There are shop links in the description of my
AshiBelle: @DagGirl Oh so its not ?
Lara Schilling: @Elilith666 If anyone tells you to use synthetic jumbo braid, don't listen
christa kissee: r the dreads u have in this vid kanekalon or that wool type stuff.... i
like them alot
lpbuttcheeks: i rly like the color combination you have on your hair. what colors did you
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
Akaysha1440: Looove your dreads :D
Lara Schilling: @Elilith666 Kanekalon jumbo braid is a kinky textured bulk synthetic hair
for braided extensions, cornrows and synthetic dreadlocks. Kanekalon being
the fibre, also 100% synthetic (PP/polypropylene) being a fibre, but as
this video states, it is the difference between these fibres as they BOTH
come in "jumbo" texture. Braid just means it is bulk hair for braids, not
wefted. What country are you in?
Lara Schilling: @musicforthelost Are you looking for a supplier for hair or someone to make
Hayyyy Gurrllll: hey girl!!!! thanks to you may be i can recognize the kanekalon, but ther
is a little problem.... i´ve go 23 beauty stores here in mexico and the
term "kanekalon" is not known for anybody... please please can you tell me
if you know some website from mexico that supplies that kanekalon hair????
i´ll thank you forever if you can help me !!!!!!!!!!
Hayyyy Gurrllll: @DagGirl a supplier for hair (ofcourse)......
MidnightShadowed: Nice links.
Lara Schilling: @OneEqualsFifteen Toyo can be used for dreads, but it's really hit and miss!
Lara Schilling: You're welcome! :)
gothiquebelle: :D ok. Thank u so much!
Lara Schilling: @ninjalette6969 Wool roving :) They are sooo comfy!
Lara Schilling: @SharpestNails Oh lol. 100% Synthetic is nylon 100% Kanekalon is acrylic
Two different plastics :P
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!
Akaysha1440: @DagGirl You're welcome. I always did love Jungle's stuff :)
Shiyiou: I like the sound of these packets ~u~
Kaelyn Collins: I really want to make me some dread falls (and this will be my first time
making them). Can i go to a beauty supply store and just make sure it says
Kanekalon on it or is it best to just order them offline?
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: @6FaceDrak It's the only stuff that should be used. It's great that all the
other colours previously only available in silky are available in jumbo :)
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.
Lara Schilling: @AshiBelle It's either PP, a mix of KK and PP or a really bad quality of KK.
TimmyDoomSqueaks: Delightfully informative! I make custom cyberlox, but I'm looking to get
into dreadfalls. Thank you!
33355311: btw..do buyhair.co.uk ships to the usa?
Lara Schilling: @Sarabii69 Online, it retails anywhere from $2.50US to $4.50US or so before
shipping. Some colours may be cheaper, some more expensive. Higher end KK
like Plastikhaar sells for about $25US a bag before shipping, but that
stuff is a million times higher quality than the basic stuff used for
dreads. The more you buy though, the more you'll save (on shipping/bulk
May Rau: In America PP(PeePee) means to urinate, So everytime you say it it makes me
Laugh out Loud!! Ha!!! but your video is really helpful!
Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
