A: When you want to protect all of your hair from the elements, including heat damage, a closure is the best way to go. Not only does it protect your hair, a closure also gives off the illusion it’s growing from your scalp. It can look as natural as your own hair.
We offer two types of closures: Lace and Silk. Here’s a closer look at the two:
A lace closure is a mesh with hair tied onto it. Upon close up inspection, the tied hair looks like little knots. Maybe you’ve heard of bleaching the knots? If you get a lace closure, you may need to bleach the knots to create a more realistic appearance of the hair growing from your scalp. We recommend faux bleaching the knots by applying powder foundation to the knots with a makeup brush until you reach a blend-able tint.
With silk closures, you don’t need to worry about bleaching the knots. That’s because the knots are covered up by a layer of silk material. Although you don’t need to bleach the knots, you will most likely need to bleach the silk. Silk comes in one colour. So, for it to match your scalp, you should dye or tint it. For staining silk, we recommend soaking it in a mixture of black tea and liquid makeup foundation, or staining it.
A quick search on Youtube will show you the many ways to customize and install closures.
