How to sew in/ install a lace closure

We do not recommend you do full sew in yourself. Once you have a better idea of how the process is, you can try – why not? First and foremost, have a glance at the groundwork.

Things to prepare:

– One rat-tail comb

– One lace cap, weaving net

– Some bobby pins

– One needle, threads for sewing

– A pair of scissors

Then, go through the following steps for the lace closure installation.

1. Apply your lace cap

Be sure your scalp and hair are not dirty before you wear the cap. Wonder why? It is necessary to the head with hair closures and wefts often. So, keeping them freshly-washed is crucial.

We suggest you rely on a gentle shampoo. The same goes for your conditioner. Moisturizing your strands afterward is significant – you know. Allow the hair to air dry before you install one lace cap.

2. Cornrow the hair

It is one of the most frequently used methods. Before you cornrow, do not forget to part the hair in various rows to the head’s back from its front. To enhance the result, you can use one rat-tail comb. It works to create straight and small rows.

Use the pins to make the rows secure. Also, begin braiding. Based on experience and practice, you should keep the braids tight enough to the scalp. That way, as soon as you finish with the full lace front closure sew-in, the installation will not inflate the hair.

3. Apply your weaving hair net

Cover the head’s top with one square hair net. For those with black hair, you should select a black net. These nets have varying colors; that is why you can choose your best fit.

Also, be sure you select the proper size. It should be something that can cover all of your hair and fit the head’s dimensions. While you do not have to apply the hair net, it is necessary when sewing as many lace closures of the 4×4 size as you can.

4. Whip-stitch the frontal lace closure

Beginning from the back, using the needle, you can master the art of whipstitching the net to the cornrow now. Note that you should start from the cornrow’s end and work your way to the front. Also, be sure the stitches have enough consistency. 

As soon as you reach the head’s top, check the threads regarding the necessity to re-thread. It will let the net remain great over the scalp.

5. Call it done

When you complete sewing the lace closure as well as the wefts, be ready to tie as well as cutting the threads. Before you do so, make them secure by stitching through the knot a couple of times. 

If you notice any excess net, sewing it to the cornrow is okay.

How to make a lace closure look natural

Reach for a good quality one with a similar texture and color to your bio hair. Also, part its hair for your favorite natural appearance.

5. Hide your real hair

Do so before you wear the closure with bundles for a more realistic look. You can make use of your hair gel to prevent the strands from flying away. Does your hair has a medium length? Then, pushing into your cap is okay. Using bobby pins is also great to make the cap secure in case your hair is frizzy or curly. For those with short hair, you can slick it back under the closure. Is your hair long? If it is, lucky you! It is the most manageable. You can make it into braids that hug the head.

You may also want to dip one thin makeup brush into your makeup. Gather a proper amount of concealer on the brush’s tip. Then brush the part covered by the liner using a thin layer of your concealer.

9. Wipe the brush off using one paper towel
