Many women wear weaves and hair extensions to obtain a natural appearance. Many installations will require leaving hair out in the front to seamlessly cover the tracks. Blend your own hair with the texture of the hair extensions.
In order to be successful at the blending process, many times, constant heat is being applied and the risk of intense heat damage is high. Now, with closures, you can use a small hair unit to cover the front of the hair where you would normally leave hair out. Your installation will be flawless with the appearance of a natural hairline. We can wear natural-looking hair extensions without damaging hair.
Closures are available in 2 distinct bases: lace and silk. You can sew or attach hair additions by using adhesive and tape. Each base is uniquely different although the methods of attachment are similar. Now, you might be wondering: which base will give you the best overall result?
