I was trying to follow Robin Woods directions for braiding hair, but I brought the wrong kind of hair. I am still going to try it with this hair, but I have a question.
 
It already has a slight curl at the end. If I cut it in half I assume the ends will be half curled and straight. Does this type of hair curl with a curling iron or rollers or will my ends just look weird? Thanks in advance for any responses. Smile

You can use any type of hair for braiding, it doesnt necessarily have to be kanekalon. As far as toyokalon hair, I wouldnt cut the hair in half. Instead you can braid it down to the length you want it to be then trim it, you can roll the ends with perm rods and dip them into boiling water if you want the ends to be curly, the boiling water helps to seal the ends.

thanks for the response. i did not know if this hair can curl. ive been reading some peoples responses about toyokalon hair and im getting afraid, but i am going to try it and if it is not working then i will buy kanekalon. i only bought one pack to try it out.

I beg to differ. I dipped mine in boiling water and the ends are still soft and not frizzy. I guess it depends on the specific "brand" you use *shrugs*.

I thought all synthetic hair you can or pose to dip in hot water with curlers or rods to get spirals.

Unless sumone here learned how to do it with Thread???

Hmmm...I also thought that you couldnt dip that hair. And as long as you dont cut it, it shuld look fine. And does pony hair=toyokalon? They both look the same with the curl at the ends.

Use Hot Rollers instead.  Dipping Pony hair in water hotter than 180 degrees can mess it up!
