Kanekalon is made from hypoallergenic fiber. It’s used not only for artificial hair but also for plush toys, carpets, artificial fur, furniture coverage, many types of synthetic fabrics and even children’s clothes. If you are not allergic to the things mentioned above, then you are not allergic to “Kanekalon” as well. A person can be allergic to certain color pigments which are used to dye”Kanekalon”, but it happens extremely seldom (1 to 10000). If you have peeling, itching or redness on your head, this may not necessarily be a symptom of an allergy.
In case of an allergic reaction, the symptoms appear at all places of contact with the material (hands, face, shoulders, neck,etc.), and can not be found only on your head where braiding is done. Likely the reason lies in the sensitivity of the scalp, as well as in the unusual tension of the hair. Itching and redness is a normal reaction and all unpleasant sensations will be gone within a week.
If the allergy is found on the other parts of the body, then the”Kanekalon” should be immediately removed! If you have any allergies to modacrylic fiber (synthetic hair “Kanekalon”) we don’t recommend using these items (DE/SE Dreads). You place an order at your own risk.
