So today, let’s get a full understanding of closure, including what is closure, how much is closure, different types of closure and their benefits, how to use, style, and make it more natural, its durability and haircare process and where to buy the best lace closure.
What is closure?
Closure is a type of hair attachment that provides full coverage and protects your natural hair. People can use closure for wig making and sew in weave. It is used to close off your wig or a particular style. That’s why people call it “closure”.
Unlike tracks, closures are attached to a lace or silk base, allowing them to resemble a scalp. The base is made up of a piece of lace or silk fabric with several single hair strands connected to resemble a scalp. Closure hair comes in a variety of sizes, but most are square or rectangular.
In general, closures are perfect for anyone looking for a full-coverage weave.
Types of closure
When it comes to categorizing closure, we have many different types of closures based on the base material, style for parting, sizes of lace, and colors of the lace.

What are the benefits of using closure hair?
Less tension on your hair and scalp
Using a closure has a number of advantages. For starters, it doesn’t interfere with your natural hair. Traditional hair extension attachment methods, for example, require you to use hot irons to fuse the tips of your hair to the extensions or weave them into your natural hair. These techniques can put a lot of stress on your natural hair, which could lead to hair loss. Because a lace closure does not adhere directly to your hair, the stress on your hair is reduced a lot.
Another benefit of a lace closure is that it appears more natural. When using other types of hair extensions, your hair may show through the extensions, preventing you from wearing hairstyles that require you to part your hair. Yet, with closure, the lace base looks like your natural scalp at a distance, thereby creating a more natural look.
Lace closure protects your hair
Many people who don’t have experience in closure and hair extensions often ask if closure damages natural hair. The answer is absolutely NO. Lace closure is safe for your hairline and scalp. You may easily take it off at the end of the day to allow your hair to breathe.
Lace closures can help you integrate your weave with your natural hair’s color and texture. To match your weave, you don’t need to use heat or hair dye to color some parts of your hair. Instead, you’d just be dyeing your weave and closure, which you could dye any color you like, rather than your own hair, making the process considerably safer. Wearing a lace closure lets you try out a wide range of styles and colors while causing minimal damage to your hair.
