What Is A Closure And How To Care For A Closure
What is a Closure?
There are many different types of hair extensions and hair pieces. One of the more popular these days is a closure. Closures allow for the best protection for your hair.
Many women feel like closures will make their hair look wig like. This is true if you choose the wrong type of closure. Consult with your hairstylist to figure out which type of closure is best for you. Make sure your stylist has experience with installing closure for the best results.
Closures cover a section of your hair while allowing sew-in weaves to appear like they are growing from your scalp. Closures are a great choice if you want your natural hair protected.
They are a great addition to your sew-in for a more natural appearance. They are attached to a lace base which allows it to appear like your scalp. They come in various sizes such as 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7 or 2x6. The most common closure is 4x4 but the most effective closure piece is 5x5.
Closure are a good aid with protective styling. They are ideal for anyone who needs a full-coverage weave.
Types of Closure Base
You can choose from two types of bases for your closure: lace and silk base. Silk base closures are more durable and thicker which causes it to lay less flat than lace closures. You may need to tint the base of your silk closure to achieve a more natural scalp like appearance.
Lace closures have a more scalp like appearance compared to silk base closures. Bleaching the knots of your lace closure gives a more natural look. Your hairstylist can help you with tweaking and customizing your closure to mimic your scalp.
