Do you really know what the difference between two types of lace closure, Silk closures and Normal Lace Closures, is? The goal when you wear lace closures should always be to obtain a natural-like appearance and no one can detect when you are wearing a silk closure or lace closure. Therefore, we are happy to share with you some knowledge about different characters of the silk lace closure and regular lace closure!

What Is A Silk Closure?

A silk closure, often referred to as a silk lace closure, is a type of hair extension designed to mimic the appearance of a natural scalp. It consists of individual hair strands hand-tied into a silk base, typically measuring 4x4, 2x5, or 5x5 in size. This seamless integration with hair weaves allows silk base closures to be comfortably sewn into hair wigs, offering a highly realistic and natural look.

Pros & Cons of Silk Base Closures

Pros of Silk Closures

- Silk closure will look very natural because all the hair knots are invisible. 

- You don’t need to bleach the knots of your silk base to match your skin color. Because the material of the silk lace base looks like your natural scalp.

- The base silk closures are made from a very strong material, then your silk closure will last about 2–3 months.

Cons of Silk Closures

- Each and every scalp isn’t formed the same, so anybody who has a darker skin tone has to spend time and money to dye it.

- This closure is typically thicker, which could pose a challenge to obtaining a nice flat install.


Pros & Cons of Silk Base Closures

What Is A Lace Closure?

Lace closures are hairpieces that feature a lace-like foundation with individual hair strands intricately embedded into small holes. Lace closures are available in various sizes, including the commonly used 4x4, along with other options like 2x4, 3x4, 5x5, 6x6, and more. They are specifically designed to provide a natural-looking hairline and can be seamlessly integrated into wigs or specific hairstyles.

Pros & Cons of Lace Closures

Pros of Lace Closures

- Lace closures give a scalp-like appearance when placed against your skin or natural scalp.

- Lace closure also allows you to get a very flat and seamless installation and easy application that will make your installation look very real.

- They provide a wide range of styling opportunities, ranging from parts to up-dos.

- Lace closures are easier to handle, and the installation takes less time.

Cons of Lace Closures

- You’ll need to do some tweaking to the lace closures to achieve the best results.

- You’ll have to bleach the knots to get rid of the grid-like effect the dots create. And if not bleached correctly, you risk ruining your closure and the hair attached—and wasting your money.

- Because of its thinness, the durability of lace closure is really low. It can be teared while being sewn into your wig.

Which Is Better: Silk Closure or Lace Closure?


Silk closure or lace closures, what’s worth your choice, is all up to your personal preference. Some prefer lace since it is thin and lies flat against the scalp. In contrast, others may like silk more since it is thicker and seems to be more durable.

If you are still confused about that, consult your hairstylists, who will understand your hair and scalp conditioner, so they can give you the best advice. No matter what you opt for, both silk and lace closures are aimed at providing users with the most natural look and covering the hair loss area.

How to take care of Silk Closure and Lace Closure

Whether you choose a silk closure or lace closure, both of them are delicate. Others cannot realize that you are wearing a hair extension or that it’s your own. Hence, it is very important to take care of them for longer use.

You can treat your hair closure by using the tips below:

  • - Don’t detangle your hair with your rough hands as well as scratch with it.
  • - Use a soft comb to brush your silk and lace closures. Start brushing your hair from the ends, then move forward to the roots. While detangling, hold the hair at the roots to prevent tension.
  • - Moisturizing hair with oils, gels, or lotion is good, but do not apply too much. Ask your hairstylist before doing so.
  • - Store your hair closure on the clean box when not using it to keep it away from dust.
  • - Wash your silk or lace closure twice a month.

In conclusion, we believe that silk or lace closures are worth your choice as they all provide a scalp-like look and comfortable feel. Hopefully, after knowing about the difference between silk and lace closures, you will know what you prefer and opt for the most suitable one for yourself.
