A closure is a hair piece that is usually made of lace or silk, although lace is the far more common choice. The hair piece is attached to a cornrow base and secured around the perimeter in order to help protect your hair and improve its look.
Closures bring countless advantages, both for the health and appearance of your hair. Many women, in an effort to help their “leave out” better blend with their weave, chemically relax it or use lots of heat on the hair. However, this can result in hair that is much more brittle, thinner, and shorter than the rest of your hair. By wearing a closure, you make sure that all of your hair is protected so that this doesn’t happen.
