What Is The Difference Between Frontals and Closures?
The size is the most obvious difference between lace frontals and lace closures . Closures are smaller (horseshoe size) because their main purpose is to close off an install hence the name closure. Frontals are larger because they run temple to temple to cover the entire hairline.
The main reason for choosing a lace frontal is its versatility. Wearing a frontal gives you the option to achieve multiple styles that a closure doesn’t; You are allowed to wear your hair pulled back with lace frontals. Keep in mind, closures only cover a small portion of the front of the install making it unachievable to pull back the sides without exposing your tracks.
A frontal will be best for you if you would like to pull your hair back. However, if you want to close your install with a natural looking part, then a lace closure will be the best decision for you. Both frontals and closures will enhance your install by giving it the natural look that you desire!
Should I Co-Wash My Extensions?
Co-washing simply means conditioner washing. It is a key task in extending the life of your extensions and keeping them healthy. We recommend a co-wash once a week with moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs. When you first receive your extensions it is important to co-wash the hair as it has been through manufacturers’ hands, packaging, etc. Shampooing the hair can strip the hair entirely too much. Always use WARM water, as hot water will overexpose the cuticle of the hair.
