What is lace closure wig?
There are so many different types of hair extension types and pieces and closures are one of them. Closures allow the ultimate protection for your hair. They completely cover your scalp making them a great protective style! Closures are a full coverage hair attachment that protects your natural hair. They can be added to your sew-in or a wig. Unlike tracks, it attaches to a lace base allowing it to have a scalp like a resemblance. When it comes to partial weaves, sew-ins, and even with some types of wigs hair is left out to blend with the weave and cover tracks. These styles are not always as fully protected as closures as it covers all your hair while still allowing your weave to look like it is coming out of your scalp.
The Pros and Cons Of Closure Wig
Versatile part – closures come in a variety of parts – free, middle, three-part, which gives you that simple, sleek, but fierce everyday look.
Blends your own hair and your human hair pieces together – if you are a human hair weave wearer, a closure is usually required so that your natural hair and the hairpiece will blend seamlessly together, especially in the hairline area.
Perfect for everyday use – if you are the type who is always on the go, closure is your ally. Since it is usually worn with a band or sewed as a removable wig, it is easier to install and remove.
Great in covering smaller imperfections in your hair – due to its small size, a closure is definitely all you need to conceal those little hair defects.
It is more affordable compared to frontal wigs – it is smaller in size, thus cheaper, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t do its job.
Requires little maintenance – thanks to elastic bands, you can easily put your closure on or off whenever you like. It does not require the same hard work you need to take care of glued frontals.
Limits your styling process – since closures cover your head only from temple to temple, you are only limited to a few styles so as not to expose the unflattering parts of your wig.
Takes time to stack properly – typically 4×4 in size, it only covers a small portion of your head, and stacking several closures will take a few hours long.
Doesn’t fit sometimes – closures don’t fit snugly sometimes, especially when you are using one with a silk base. Another factor is inaccurate measurement of your head size, which can affect its fit and flatness.
