What is a hair closure?
Hair closure are hairpieces that are often created from lace or silk, but lace is by far the more popular material. To protect your hair and enhance its appearance, the hairpiece is fastened to a cornrow foundation and secured all the way around.
Benefits of hair closures
Hair closure have a wealth of benefits for your hair’s look. Many women chemically relax their hair or apply a lot of heat to it in an effort to make their “leave out” blend in better with their weave. But this can cause your hair to become considerably more fragile, finer, and shorter than the rest of it. To prevent this from happening, you can ensure that all of your hair is covered with a closure.
There are different sizes and dimensions when it comes to hair closure. I’m not talking about sizes in terms of length or dimensions in terms of color. What I am referring to is the literal width of the base of a closure. While the dimensions can vary, closures usually come in dimensions of 2″ x 6″, 4″ x 4″, 5″ x 5″, 6″ x 6″ or or 7″ x7″ .
Types of bases
There are two different types of bases of hair closure. The first has a lace base closure, while the second has a silk base closure. A silk basis has the advantage of often being more robust and lasting over time. As a result of its tendency to be a little bit thicker, this closure tends to lay slightly less flat than lace closure. To make the base look more scalp-like, you’ll probably need to color it. Lace base closures are the alternative type of base. Closures made of lace resemble the scalp more.
So which one is better: lace closure or silk closure? I could say that lace closures are perfect because it gives you a flat and smooth appearance. However, the downside of a Lace Closure is having to bleach or tone the knots for it to blend properly with your scalp. Silk closures are also a great chose because of the a natural-like human scalp and not detectable. It’s honestly a preference.
For your stylistic requirements, closures come in a variety of pieces. Some closures split only once, while others split up several times. The central portion and the side part are the two primary types of parts. Additionally, there are free part closures that let you part your closure in a variety of ways for those of you who simply can’t make up your minds. You can nearly always create the style you want with a natural-looking part thanks to the variety of textures available, which range from straight to wavy to kinky to curly.
The difference between hair closure and frontal
One of the big questions here is the difference between hair closure and frontal. A closure once applied to the hair will have a set part that will mimic a scalp while a lace frontal part will usually have more versatility and mimics a natural hairline. Both come with their pros and cons for different people depending on your hair needs. Closures are used for sew-ins. Sometimes the lace on closure can be a bit heavier than the lace base of a frontal.
Besides, the size of them are different. While, size of frontal are large with 13″ x 4″, 13″ x 6″, closure is smaller with 2″ x 6″, 4″ x 4″, 5″ x 5″, 6″ x 6″ or or 7″ x7″ in size.
Maintaining & Adjusting Your Closure
It can be difficult to get the hair to sit down after readjusting the part if you achieve closure with a flexible part. You can overcome this by wetting the hair, readjusting the part, and then blow-drying it. It will be simpler to modify if the hair
You can also part the hair, hairspray it, and use a flat iron to hold the hair down into place. Although merely combing the hair into the part you want may seem like the easier option these techniques make it easier to adjust.
Three-part closures that include a variety of pieces already exist when it comes to adaptable closures. The portions are already divided within the closure because the hair has been pre-trained. This makes it a little simpler to modify, but the methods stated above may still be used to achieve the same result with a conventional flexible closure.
Although frontals can be worn in a variety of ways, they need a lot of upkeep. For sportsmen and sports enthusiasts, closures that require less maintenance can be excellent. Your closing can be washed and condition, however we advise letting it air dry. You want to be careful not to treat your closure roughly when caring for it.
To prevent balding, refrain from overbrushing and pulling your hair. This will make it more likely that your closing can be used to different styles in the future.
Sealing Down Your Closure
You can secure your closure using a variety of techniques, while some of them are more damaging to your hair than others. The most popular techniques are sewing, tape, adhesive, and hair bands. One of the most damaging techniques is glue since, if you’re not careful, it could peel off your edges or even result in a bald spot. There are techniques to make gluing safer, such applying a protective solution to the area on your head where you would glue the closure, but generally speaking, it is best to avoid glue as it can lead to a number of issues. Despite being far less durable, taping is a significantly safer alternative than glue for sealing.
In most cases, taping is not the best technique if you want to ensure that your closure will stay in place. To use a hair band, just cut a headband to the right size, sew it to the opposite sides of the closure, lay the closure flat, and tie the headband around your head. However, if you employ this technique, you should use extreme caution because tying the headband excessively tightly by accident can cause headaches. If none of these approaches sound good to you, another excellent option without many drawbacks is to sew the closure down.
Wearing a Closure
Don’t worry if you want to install your own closure; it’s not as difficult as it may seem to do so. However, in order to do it yourself, you must be able to sew on weave. YouTube lessons are a fantastic (free) resource to use to teach yourself how to install closures perfectly if you’ve never done it before or if your previous attempts didn’t turn out well. It’s a good idea to speak with a qualified beautician or even have them install it if you’re still unsure or have any questions.
