Coloured using corn maize and food colouring in the form of a powder. The powder is applied to dry banana hair and then a serum applied over the top.
Due to the use of a coloured powder, it can be washed after use and a different colour applied for your next ‘do’, this can be done as many times as you wish. Additional colours can also be purchased.
The colour powder is made of 98% corn starch and 2% permitted food colours. The manufacturer is an ISO 9001-2005 certified Crisil rated company producing the highest quality product. The powder is 100% non toxic. The colour powder is bio degradable and environmentally safe. Although colour powder washes out very easily, we advise you not to wear your best clothes or most expensive shoes when working with it. Should the colour powder fall/rub on to your hair the easiest way to get it off is while it’s still dry (shake, wiggle or jump up and down). If it has got wet or damp then just wash your hair as usual. It will come out, if not in the first wash it will after a few washes.
The length is approximately 40″ folded over and weighs 30g or 90g; banana hair is approximately half the weight of human or plastic hair.
Our hair is biodegradable, hypoallergenic, can be washed, conditioned, oiled, coloured, heat styled and reused many times. The texture of the hair is course yet flexible making it perfect for braiding, making dreadlocks, plaiting and much more.
Women HAND create our product from start to finish, therefore do expect fluctuations and inconsistencies between products; we do compromise perfection for the planet but we strongly believe it is a great compromise.
