A lace closure is a special piece of hair in which individual hair strands are tied onto a piece of lace. Closures come in different sizes where the most common are 3 inches wide by 4 inches deep. The sole purpose of the closure is to allow you to have a wig without leaving out any hair.
Types of lace closures
There are many types of lace closures in the market that you can go for. The most common are:
Silk base closures: Unlike other closures that come with wefts, these ones come with individual strands. They also provide you with more styling options. The closures have a thick fabric that lasts for long while at the same time providing you with plenty of ventilation thus you can use them even in the warm climates.
Monofilament closures: This is simply a mesh applied in a single-strand method. While you can use it in different hairstyles, it's ideal when used in stiffer hairstyles with full bangs as it easily maintains the original shape of hair without any problem. Due to the mesh, you tend to have a better looking scalp.
Skin-polyurethane closure: The closure comes in a thin, flexible silicone base that creates the illusion of a natural scalp. While it looks great, it isn't durable. It also doesn't allow plenty of air into the hair; therefore, it's not ideal for hot climates.
Hybrid closure: Makes use of the monofilament combined with the lace thus creating a natural-looking hairline. These closures are usually of high density especially in the monofilament areas. This makes them durable.
Invisible part closure: This closure involves weft hair that has been sewn into a mesh base. It's often in an oblong shape and you can fit it in different face shapes.
Lace closure tips
For you to have a great experience with the closures you need to consider a number of tips. One of the things that you should do is use a closure that perfectly fits your scalp. This is to prevent it from falling off. When installing the units, never use glue as this results to hair loss. The best way of going about it is sewing the closures.
Just because you are wearing the closure it doesn't mean that everyone should know about it. To avoid drawing attention to the closure you should tint the materials used in the closure so that they match your scalp.
