Cornrow your hair braiding the top/middle section back for the placement of the closure. Then, sew a weaving net over the tracks.
Tip: The weaving net is helpful because it makes it easier to sew in-between braids, which allows you to sew in more tracks.
The best part about the Simply Silk Lace Closure is that it already comes ready for you to use. You don’t need to do anything else to. Of course, unless you want to!
Tip: To customize, you can bleach the knots and use tweezers to thin the hairline of the lace on the closure.
Place the closure a little above your hairline and start to sew down the closure. Make sure that when you do this, you start from the middle and you work your way around. Once done, trim the excess lace off.
Tip: We recommend that you use nylon thread, because it gives you more wiggle room when it comes to your closure.
Use hair gel to lay down your edges. Make sure to use a moderate amount so that it turns tacky, and apply gel to the silk lace.
Tip: Use a blow dryer, on the warm setting, and spend a minute or so passing over the gel so that it becomes tacky.
Use the tail of a comb to gently lay down the silk lace closure, and let it stick to the gel so that the closure is securely laid.
Next, take a few strands of hair from the closure, and using a razor, trim the strands to create baby hair. Then, using hair gel, lay down the baby hairs, so that it blends with your own. This will make the closure look even more natural.
Finish weaving the rest of the hair with the longer bundles, and style as you desire!
