Full Weaves with Closures
A closure is a special hair piece that is sewn onto the crown of your head. Strands of hair are attached to a small hair cap that imitates your scalp. The closure allows you to part your hair on top of your head. This makes your hair weave look more natural. If placed properly just behind the hairline, it can allow the wearer to wear a full weave with no hair left out while giving the appearance of a natural scalp area.
Closures are constructed from a number of materials:
Breathable closures are constructed from silk mesh with a poly strip or thin skin around the outer perimeter of the mesh which strengthens the mesh (for a sewn-in application) or to make bonding the closure easier. These closures allow for freestyle parting along the cap area. The addition of a flesh colored fabric under will help to add the look of a natural scalp to this style of closures. This type of closure may require the sealing of the knots (as in a lace frontal) to help keep the hair secured firmly in the base.
Know that I do not install full weaves without closures or a portion of your natural hairline out on top. The “swirl” method of wrapping the hair weft around in circles until creating a false cowlick looks very unnatural to me and tends to lift. Therefore it is a service that I don’t provide.
At this time, the only closure I recommend is the Swiss Lace Closure from http://www.3curls.com. I’ve worked with these closures numerous times and they last forever. I do NOT bleach the knots prior to installation, feel free to bleach the knots yourself for a more natural look. For more information on bleaching the knots on a closure, there’s plenty of Youtube tutorials with information on products you can use and instructions.
Remember ladies, if you’re looking to get a full weave with your crown put up, have your closure along with your wefted hair ready for me to install.
