Long, sexy braids are hot! As long as they are not literally hot. If you have an allergy to the coating that gives Kanekalon hair is lustrous texture, it can feel like your scalp is on fire. To avoid the itching and burning associated with Kanekalon, you may opt to soak the hair before braiding. There is one drawback: Soaking will remove the coating, and it will change the texture of the Kanekalon. While the synthetic hair will still be smooth, it may tend to frizz easier than if it had the coating. Frizz or itch --- You decide.
