Now if the FLOTUS is wearing a closure then you have no excuse. There are so many advantages of rocking a closure. Here are a few FAQs and helpful tips about finding the perfect closure.
WHAT IS A CLOSURE?
A closure is a hair piece, a few inches long and wide that is designed to give you the appearance of a natural scalp without having to let your natural hair be shown.
WHY WEAR A CLOSURE?
The number one advantage to wearing a closure is to achieve healthy hair. With partial installs you risk the chances of damaging your natural hair through heat and styling. Wearing a closure allows you to have a full install. Wearing a full install will allow you to experiment with styles and colors without sacrificing the health of your natural hair.
TIPS ON SELECTING THE PERFECT CLOSURE
Breathable: Be sure that your closure is designed to allow your natural scalp to breath. Lace closures are best for this.
Lays Flats: The flatter the closure the more natural it looks.
Quality of the Hair: Be sure to select a closure that has a good quality of hair. You never want to experience a blading closure.
Silk or Lace: Swiss lace is a good alternative to silk base as it allows the scalp to breathe while allowing you to protect your hair. Silk base closures may sometimes give an unnatural “line of demarcation” (that area where it is obvious where your real scalp ends and the closure begins). Lace closures tend to be more natural looking because they lay flatter against the scalp.
Authentic Lace: When selecting a lace closure be sure that it is true lace.
Grids: The grid of the closure should be as tiny and undetectable as possible. The smaller the better.
