A lace closure is actually more of a hair piece. Hair extensions are integrated into a piece of lace and that lace is what is placed over your hair. There are several benefits to using a closure. For one, it leaves your natural hair alone. For example, traditional hair extension attachment methods involve the use of hot irons to fuse the tips of hair to the extensions, or to weave them into your current hair. These methods can put a lot of strain on your natural hair and may result in hair loss. A lace closure doesn’t directly attach to your hair, which means the stress on your hair isn’t as bad.
Another advantage of using a lace closure is that it looks natural. Using non-closure hair extensions, you might have some difficulty as your natural hair may be seen poking through the extensions, thereby ruling out hairstyles that require you to part your hair. With a closure, the lace looks like your natural scalp at a distance.
