Kanekalon is one of the most popular synthetic materials for making wigs. Japan is the birthplace of kanekalon, though nowadays it is known worldwide

Kanekalon hair is made from a type of modacrylic fiber designed to closely resemble human hair. It possesses several advantages that make it popular in the world of wigs:

  1. Natural Appearance: Kanekalon hair has a natural shine and texture that closely mimics real hair, providing a realistic look.
  2. Heat Resistance: Compared to some other synthetic hair types, kanekalon is more resistant to heat. This means that the hair can be styled using heat tools such as curling irons and straighteners (though caution should still be exercised to avoid damage and to a max of 100 degrees celsius).
  3. Lightweight: Kanekalon hair is generally lightweight, contributing to comfortable wear.
  4. Durability: The kanekalon material is durable and maintains its shape and color well, even with regular use.

Because of these characteristics, kanekalon is favored by those looking for affordable and versatile wigs for fashion, cosplay, or other occasions. It’s important to follow the specific care instructions provided by Wicked Wigs to maintain the longevity and quality of our kanekalon wigs.
