With closures growing more and more popular, we get the million dollar question daily. “Should I get a silk or a lace closure?”

This is a loaded questions and must be determined by individual preference.  Lace closures are thinner so they lie flatter on the head and allow for a more natural look. If you already have very thick hair, you would more than likely want to lean toward a lace closure so it can lay as flat as possible when installed. Most lace closure bases have to be bleached or material must be added so that the base color blends with your scalp color.

 

With silk closures, you don't have to worry about that. Also, silk closures look very natural. To the naked eye, it's almost impossible to tell the difference between your own scalp and the created scalp on the silk closure. The only problem is they aren't as thin as a lace closure, so they will not lie flat on your head but with the proper installation this can easily be rectified.
