Before we get into the ways that closures and frontals are different, let’s discuss how they are similar. Closures and frontals are made with either lace or silk, or a mixture of both. Both closures and frontals will mimic your scalp when styled correctly.
Silk-based closures will replicate your scalp more accurately if ever viewed up close. Lace closures are usually preferred considering that they lay much flatter against the scalp. Typically, lace will need to be adjusted to mimic the scalp color more. The noticeable difference between closures and frontals is the size.
Since frontals run from temple to temple and cover the entire hairline, they are fuller in size. Closures usually only include about a horseshoe size portion at the top or front of the installation. Another significant difference is that closures are always meant to be sewn into place, and have less versatility due to this. Frontals are intended to be bonded into place.
This entails that they look as close to your natural hair as possible and because of this, they have the most versatility out of the two.

Maintaining healthy hair is vital to hair growth Taking care of your hair once in awhile is great but maintaining healthy hair is even better.
From what to do to what to avoid we’ve got you covered. Here are 5 tips for maintaining healthy hair.
1. Wash Your Hair with the RIGHT Shampoo
We all know that shampooing your hair is important but what is even more important is using the right shampoo. Don’t settle for any old mundane shampoo use one for your specific hair and scalp needs .
There are various shampoos available for different hair and scalp conditions. Whether it is dandruff, itch, dry scalp there is a shampoo for you and the same goes for your hair type. Curlier hair textures tend to need more moisture while straighter hair textures tend to get oily. There are even shampoos that will help you balance the ph levels . Take a look at our YouTube channel for an amazing shampoo and conditioner ( LLSWEAVE BAR )
2. Deep Condition
It is just as important to condition your hair as it is to shampoo. The two go hand in hand. Shampoos clean while conditioners make your hair feel smooth again.
The combination is similar to when you take a shower. When you take a shower you wash with soap then afterward you rub lotion on your skin. Shampoo and conditioner are like the soap and lotion duo for hair. The shampoo is the soap and conditioner is the lotion; the two work seamlessly together.
Co - washing is short for conditioner only washing. Basically, co-washing is when you use conditioner in place of shampoo. Women with natural hair can co-wash their hair as a way to promote moisture.
Make Your Conditioner
The thing I love about conditioner is that you can make your own out of the convenience of your own home. Many natural ingredients have moisturizing capabilities that work very well on hair. Everyday foods we eat like mayonnaise, eggs, honey, olive oil have nutrients and vitamins that help with healthy hair.
Moisturizing both your hair and your scalp is very important. Like our skin, our scalp produces natural moisture yet additional moisture is still needed. There are many moisturizers out there but try to stay away from anything with petroleum or mineral oil .
Aside from manufactured moisturizers, there are natural oils that you can use to moisturize your hair. This leads me to the next tip for maintaining healthy hair, use natural oils!
4. Use Natural Oils
Did you know that you can use natural oils on your hair? They can be used for moisture and even mixed in with your conditioner or water to help nourish your hair and scalp.
Many natural oils are multipurpose. Natural oils can be used in your food, on your skin, and in your hair!
Here is a list of natural oils you can use for your hair and their benefits:
5. Regular Trim
You don’t necessarily need a big chop to keep your hair healthy, but a nice trim every once in awhile won’t hurt. A regular trim is necessary to make sure your hair is healthy and vibrant.
It is recommended that you get a trim every three months. A trim helps reduce split ends that cause further hair damage.
