How to Care for and Maintain Your 2x6 Lace Closures

Our clients love the limited amount of lace you need to keep up with. That doesn’t mean there isn’t any closure maintenance, so let’s jump into what’s required to keep your lace closure poppin'!

Everyday Maintenance

Brush your 2x6 lace closures regularly with a soft-bristled brush to prevent tangles and knots. Wearing a silk or satin cap while sleeping can also help prevent breakage and tangling and make your lace closures smooth, soft, and frizz-free.

Cleaning Your Closure

Before washing your 2x6 lace closure, gently brush it out and detangle the hair to avoid knots. Fill a tub or sink with lukewarm water and soak the closure gently, swishing gently but not gently rubbing or twisting harshly.

Use a sulfate-free shampoo, preferably something that’s specifically made for human hair wigs and lace closures.

Use a hydrating conditioner on the lengths of the hair of the lace closure. Finish off washing by washing off all the conditioner and rinsing the lace closure under cool water.

Blot out excess water gently with a soft microfiber towel. Either let it air dry or dry it with the cool setting of your hair dryer.

Do not rub the lace closure with a towel or wring out excess water if you want to avoid any breakage and damage.

When the 2x6 lace closure is dry, brush the hair out with a wide-toothed comb, starting at the bottom from the tips and going upwards, gently detangling as you go.

Closure Styling

If you use heat styling tools, always use a heat protectant spray on your lace closure to avoid damage.

Remember, it is 100% human hair, so just like using a good heat protectant on your hair, you should also use it on the 2x6 lace closure. When styling, be gentle and avoid pulling and adding tension to the hair.

When styling your 2x6 lace closures, ensure not to stress the lace closure’s human hair too much.

Remember, a closure is ventilated where strands of hair are tied into knots.

This baby is delicate, okay! Avoid using heavy styling products like oils, gels, and mousses on the lace closure, as they can weigh the hair down and decrease the longevity of the 2x6 lace closure.

Closure Storage: When storing your 2x6 lace closures, lay them out flat and store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent color fading. You can also cover the lace closure with a satin or silk bonnet or a hairnet to prevent tangling and avoid collecting dust and lint. Do not store your extensions, wigs, or jumbled items in a crowded space. This can cause friction and tangling.

Let’s Address the Common Issues

All hair sheds and tangles if you don’t take care of it. At Private Label, we want you always to have the best hair experience, and understanding how to care for your hair is key!


Ladies, just like your natural hair is bound to tangle, your 2x6 lace closures will sometimes get tangled as they are made from 100% human hair.

But there are ways to manage the tangling! Start with using a detangling spray to remove the tangles and knots gently.

Use a wide-tooth comb and start detangling from the tips and working your way up towards the top of the lace closure.

This brush pattern helps avoid breakage and allows more knots to form. If your 2x6 lace closure is so severely tangled and you fear it might cause irreparable damage, contacting a professional hair extensions stylist would be helpful.


Just like your natural hair shed, the 100% human hair 2x6 lace closure will also have some shedding.

While a bit of shedding is normal, excessive shedding can mean that you may need to take proper care of your lace closure and treat it more harshly with excessive styling and handling.

To avoid shedding, do not brush or comb excessively and in a rough manner. Do not brush the lace closure when the hair is wet.

Human hair is more prone to breakage and damage when wet, so only brush after thoroughly drying.

Dryness and Frizz

Use moisturizing and hydrating products made for 100% human hair lace closures to help prevent dry and frizzy hair.

Try to minimize exposure to harsh weather, such as extreme heat, rain, and wind, as these all contribute to frizz and dryness.

Let’s Talk Lifespan

So, how long can you flaunt the 2x6 lace closures? A good care and maintenance routine at home is key to increasing the longevity of the lace closure.

Treat your 2x6 lace closure like your own hair, and you can easily flaunt it for six to 12 weeks.

Your daily activities also influence the longevity of your extensions.

For instance, if you are an avid swimmer, your lace closure might face more damage from the constant exposure to chlorinated water and may have a shorter lifespan.
