Silk, or Lace Closure? Lace Frontal

What are the difference between them??

Lace-frontals cover a larger area than closure as they will have a temple to temple hairline. This larger temple to temple area in combination with the replication of a natural hairline allows for many off the face type of hairstyles that are not possible with a regular closure.

Closures do not run temple to temple. Instead they are placed in the “horseshoe” area at the top of a weave to close off the style. Closures can be installed by bonding, as well as by attaching with the use of clips. The most popular method for installing closures is by sewing the closure then installing the rest of the weave around the closure. The closure is placed close to the edge of the braided foundation near the hair line.. The stylist then sews around the perimeter of the closure taking acre to stitch so that the stitches are concealed.

How to care for and Prevent damage!

Since closures and frontals are delicate in nature, it is important to take extra care to prevent damage or balding. Balding is when your closure piece begins to have a spot where the hairs have come out of the base creating a balding appearance. This can be caused by, excessive tugging, brushing/combing, scratching with fingernails or foreign objects, applying product directly on the closure piece, rough handling, or vigorous washing. Closures and frontals while mimicking a real scalp or hair line, cannot be treated like a real scalp. You must handle with care. Each hair is individually ventilated into the base, knotted and secured with a strong adhesive. Based on the construction of a the piece, you should comb/brush the hair from the ends, working your way up to the root while hold the hair at the root to prevent tension. Hair loss on closures is relatively easy because it is not wefted like extensions. Improper care of your closure will cause balding and unfortunately there is no way to fix this.
