A closure is a hair piece, only a few inches long and wide and is usually made of a lace that is attached to a cornrow base and secured around the perimeter. There are two types of closure hair extensions, lace and silk. Lace is more durable and tends to be the most desired choice.

Picking a closure: Lace vs Silk
Lace is the most desired and common choice because it is more durable. Another advantage of lace closures is that they are thinner so they lie flatter on the head, in other words you won’t have to worry about that “line of demarcation” (aka, that area where it is obvious where your real scalp ends and the lace closure begins) Silk, on the other hand is also very popular. Silk closures look very natural to the naked eye, it’s almost impossible to tell the difference. However, it is important to note it is not as durable.

Wearing a closure correctly
When wearing a closure hair extension there can be a small portion of your edges that will show. Because of this, an edge control product is required. This is a product that will help smooth and hold your edges in place. Popular brands are;
– Olive Oil Edge Control
– Carols Daughter Macadamia Hold
– Control Smoother
– Creme of Nature Perfect Edges Control
– Hicks Edges Hair Edge Control.

Another consideration is you will want to make sure that your foundation matches your skin tone to the closure and your natural scalp. This will help blend out the line at the closure and make is much less noticeable. At Radiance we have all the products you will require right in store!

Final Notes
It takes a talented weaving technician to install a closure properly! Not everyone can master this detailed work. There are many videos and tutorials on how to do this yourself but this is not a DIY project. If your closure does not look seamless and perfect your whole weave is off. Consult one of our expert technicians at Radiance and we can book your appointment and give you a perfect closure.
