When it comes to wearing weaves and hair extensions, the goal should be to acquire a natural appearance. No one deliberately wants their weave to be easily detected, which explains the reason why many installations require leaving hair out from the front to cover the tracks. However, this method comes the hassle of mixing your own hair with the texture of the extension.
Many times to succeed in the blending process, constant heat is implemented. The chance of extreme heat damage is high. But thanks to closures – a little hair unit used to cover the front of the hair where you would usually leave out hair – your installation will be perfect with all the look of a natural hairline. Isn’t it amazing that you can wear natural-looking hair extensions that can be worn by you without causing damage to your hair?
Closures come in a few bases that are distinct: lace and silk. Both hair additions attached with tape and adhesive or may be sewn down. Although attachment methods are similar, each base is distinctively different. Which base will give you the best overall result?
Below are a few factors to consider to guide you through the silk and lace base selection procedure:
LACE CLOSURES are constructed by ventilating individual strands onto a lace foundation.
It provides a scalp-like appearance whenever it’s placed next to or against your natural scalp that is. In addition, it guarantees an exceptionally flat and effortless installation which can make your general hairstyle seem real.
The closure will require some tweaking, To get the best results. The dot-matrix (the tiny black dot pattern that is created when the hair strands are embedded into the lace) will be visible when placed against your skin, therefore it’s ideal to bleach the knots on your closure eliminate the grid-like effect of the matrix. Bleached knots will simulate the individual strands of hair growth from your scalp. If your closure is not bleached correctly, you risk wasting your money by ruining the hair along with lace. On the other hand, a foundation or concealer might be added to enhance the look.
SILK BASE CLOSURES (also known as”Silk Top Closures”)are fabricated with hair strands inserted into a nude, skin-like silk material which is typically supported with lace.
Silk base closures have a propensity to last longer, in addition, to don’t involve bleaching, unlike closures. Entirely due to the silk cloth backing on the closure, the knots are not detectable and mimic the scalp without considerable changes.
Despite the fact that the silk part will help conceal a natural scalp look to be provided by the knots. All scalps are not created the same. It’s advisable to alter and tint your silk base if you’re of skin tone with a scalp that is significantly darker. Also, this style of closure usually is a little thicker, which might represent a challenge with attaining a setup that is extremely flat.
