How Do I Care For My Closure?

You have a closure in your hand, an appointment with your stylist, and a screenshot of your new style. You're ready to slay your day, right? Not so fast. Do you know how to prep and maintain your closure? Read on and we'll tell you how...

  1. Treat your closure as if it were your own hair. Be careful with chemicals, dyes, rinses, and bleaches. Use them sparingly as they may damage your closure, just as they would damage your natural hair.  
  2. Prior to first install, we strongly suggest that you seal your closure. Closures are delicate and each hair strand is hand-inserted into the lace/silk pores and knotted carefully. With washing and daily styling, those knots can sometimes loosen and the hair can fall from the pores, leading to thinning or even balding. Sealing your closure will secure the knots inside the lace/silk. We recommend using Knot My Problem Knot Sealer  before each install (available at most beauty supply stores). Check with your stylist for additional sealing options. 
  3. Wash and condition using moisturizing products. We recommend: Sassy Shampooo/Conditioner, Suave Sleek, or One-N-Only Argan Products. For curly hair, we recommend a small amount of a daily moisturizer such as coconut or moroccan argan oil to combat dryness or frizziness. 
  4. Gently swish your closure when washing. Do not rub or twist. Do not brush or pull hair while wet, as this will loosen the knots.
  5. Allow your closure to dry naturally or use a low heat drying process.
  6. Finger comb your closure, especially curly hair. Do not brush, as this can cause tangling and frizziness.
  7. Tangling should not occur, but if it does, use a mild detangler or a moisturizing leave-in conditioner. Gently detangle using your fingers or a wide-toothed comb. Do not tug on the hair, as this will loosen the knots and cause thinning/balding of the lace/silk base.
  8. Use a satin bonnet when sleeping.

Now you're ready!
