Lace closures are hair pieces where strands of hair are sewn or braided onto a piece of lace. It is made such that a part can be created, and the lace material allows the wearer’s scalp to show through the part. This creates a more natural appearance compared to other types of hair pieces. The part can also be positioned according to the user’s preference. Additionally, lace closures are constructed such that the hair strands look like they are growing out of the wearer’s scalp.
Using lace closures allows wearers to give their natural hair a break from styling processes. In particular, frequent blow-outs and ironing to make the hair appear straighter can damage natural hair. Blow drying can dry out hair cuticles and make them rigid and brittle. Ironing the hair dry or wet can lead to the cracking of hair cuticles, which can then cause split ends and hair breakage.
Lace closures thus allow wearers to have well-styled hair while giving their natural hair a break from the heat of blow-outs, ironing, and other hair styling techniques that use heat. Good quality lace closures make use of human hair that come in several varieties like Malaysian virgin, Indian remy, Indian virgin, and Mongolian; and in various styles and textures that mimic natural hair. Hence, wearers can continue to have great-looking hair while protecting their natural ones from the damages of hair styling techniques.
