Default Sealing ends of Kanekalon Braids

I think for the spring I want to put some braids in. I want to use kanekalon hair but I don't want to burn the ends. Is there techniques that you have used to do this? If so please help me out.

You can dip the ends in very hot boiled water

Try rolling the ends on perm rods and then dip in boiling water. That will give you a pretty spiral look. hth

Thanks I have done that with my kinky twists. But with this hair if I don't curl the ends will they unravel? Will I be able to swim with them?

No your hair won't un ravel.
You can do a couple of things.

add oil to the ends of your Kanekalon, and dip them....
Or spray the ends with Water, and Blow Dry the ends with a round brush.

Will look like HH braids...

I just dip mines is boilng hot water and carefully towel dry while they are hanging strait down away from you body cause it will burn u! If i want a loose wavy look..i put about 5 or 6 big loose briads in the hot water...dip and unravel the loose briads..makes a very nice wavy texture...the good this about kankelon is..if you wanna curl it one week and wear it strait the next all u have to do is just redip them in the hot water...and it straitens right back out..u can rock a few styles!
