There are a lot of concerns when buying a wig, especially when it is your first wig. From the texture, color, to installation, everything can give you a headache. Of course, you want to make sure you get your money worth. In this article, we want to introduce you lace closure human hair wigs, for you to see if it is a good fit.
Lace closure human hair wigs: lace closure vs. lace frontal
The first thing you want to consider when buying a wig is to decide if you want a lace closure or a lace closure. For beginners, it can be confusing to distinguish the two. Don’t worry; we’ve got your back! Lace closure and lace frontal suit different needs and preferences, so you should consider carefully.
The idea of lace closures and lace frontals is hair sewn in strand by strand to a lace patch. The patch is used to be attached to your head whereas the hair replaces your real hair. The quality of hair is one thing, but the quality of the patch is essential too.
Although the patch cannot be seen, it affects how you wear the wig. Your wig can look very funny if the lace patch is not placed or covered in the right way. To make sure your wig looks beautiful and undetectable, the lace patch should suit your head size and installed by a professional.

The lace patch, as the name suggests, is made of lace. Lace is a very lightweight and breathable material so that your scalp will feel more comfortable throughout the whole wear time. Because all the sweat and oil from the head can evaporate out into the environment, your skin stands less chance of over-sensitivity, irritation or rashes.
The only different thing between lace closures and lace frontals is the size. While lace closures’ patch is only 4×4 or 5×5 in inches, that of lace frontals is often 13×4. The reason for that is the difference in installation. Lace closures are placed in the “crown” part of your forehead, with all the tracks sewn in around the head to the back. On the contrary, lace frontals run from ear to ear. That is why its length is much larger than its width.
With different size, the two types serve different purposes. For girls with thinning hair along the hairline, especially in the edges, lace frontal is the one for you because the lace patch can cover the edges, creating the illusion of hair growing from your head. If you don’t have such problem, we think you should go with lace closures.

Lace closure human hair wigs do the job of staying secured on your head with such a small lace patch. Because the patch is low, you do not have to sit for hours to wait for the piece to be covered by glue or concealers. Although it is small, it still stays in your head without being moved around by any means as everything is tightly sewed in. It looks so natural and effortless that no one can find out your little secret.
Lace closure human hair wigs: synthetic hair vs. human hair
There is not much to say about this battle. Lace closure human hair wigs win. Synthetic hair may be cheaper, but they are worn out so fast. The hair will quickly get tangled and shed from the base. Not to mention that the hair is not as natural as real human hair.
Even though hair manufacturers try to coat synthetic, fiber hair with chemicals that make it more shiny and soft, the quality can no way compare with real hair. If someone stands close to you, or if they touch your hair, they will feel the difference. They instantly know it is not real hair.
Therefore, we advise that you invest your money into real human hair. It can be expensive at first, but you can wear it for so much longer. And because the hair is harvested from donors, it is real to the touch. Even if people touch your hair, they will never find out that you are wearing a wig.
However, in the world of wigs, real human hair also varies in quality and specification. You should be careful with that. Virgin hair is different from raw hair, and Remy hair is different from non-Remy hair as well.
Raw hair is unprocessed hair. It means that the hair has never gone through any heat, steam or chemical treatment before. It is the purest form of hair. Without any human’s interference except for the cleaning process, raw hair is indeed the king of all hair.
Virgin hair is different from raw hair, and Remy hair is different from non-Remy hair as well.
Virgin hair is also real human hair that has undergone processes with heat and steam. However, chemicals are not introduced by any means. The hair manufacturers need to use steam and heat to style the hair uniformly, or to remove any impurities left in the hair.
Technology plays a critical role in this part. Some hair manufacturers collect real human hair but use cheap, old-fashioned technology to process them. As a result, the hair’s cuticles are broken, making the hair weaker and dryer.
At Layla Hair, we do not do that. We use the most advanced technology to treat each hair strand with care. The level of heat used is reduced to minimum so that all the cuticles can stay intact and the hair strands can flow in one direction.
