So, here comes the question that might have been in your mind for some time. If you choose to wear a sewn in or a lace closure wig, you can be sure that it will last longer than the frontal type. But you will have to take some care of your wig to let it serve you and make the most of it. Lace closures actually do well in the warm weather because their use does not involve much customizing or gluing that you might need for a lace front wig with closure that mightlast for 2 to 3 weeks. After that time period, it will lose the glue and gradually pull off at the edges.
How about your lace closures? This will depend on three factors mentioned below –
1. THE TYPE OF THE LACE
The lace type will have a major impact on the closure’s durability. There are usually two types – French and Swiss. While the French lace comes in different colors, the Swiss lace is more transparent and flimsy. Based on our experience, we can say that the French lace lasts longer than the Swiss type because the former is more harder wearing than the latter.
2. THE TYPE OF HAIR
The type of hair used for the closure is also important. Do not think that a synthetic wig will last longer than a natural one like the Remy hair. For your information, non-Remy hair and comb wastes are so fragile because they are treated chemically to straighten them. As a result, the cuticles are often broken that is beyond any repair. It is estimated that a closure made of non-Remy hair won’t last more than 6 months.
3. THE HAIRSTYLE
Steam heat and chemical treatments are used in the manufacturing of blond straight or body wavy lace closures. Although the manufacturers try to reduce the possible side effects of this type of processing, these wigs still have adverse effects on the quality of the hair. This results in the closures with various hairstyles being less durable than those that have been made of human hair. The good news is they will still serve you long with proper maintenance from your part.
