Step-by-Step Installation Guide

The installation method of 2x6 closure follows the below steps given sequentially:

Prepare Your Natural Hair

Hair preparation includes washing and conditioning.

The primary purpose is to clean the oils and product buildup that otherwise reduce the adhesive’s effectiveness. It is recommended to use a mild shampoo and conditioner, preferably sulfate-free.

Deep Conditioning: It is better to condition your hair deeply a day before installation. This will hydrate the closure.

Dry Your Hair: Gently dry your hair. Wet hair contains moisture, which may lead to mold growth. One can pat dry using a soft dryer, followed by air drying. Heat appliances are not recommended for closures. They have potential hazards.

Braid Your Hair: Make cornrows from your hair by braiding. The process will be more straightforward if you divide the hair into sections. This will help provide a flat base for the 2x6 closures to lay smoothly over the scalp. Make sure the braids are moderately tight. Thus, the user will be comfortable.

Wear a wig cap: The wig cap is optional. One can wear a wig cap if required and wants a seamless look. A wig cap helps mimic the scalp and avoid folds. Private Label can help you find a cap of your choice at a reasonable price.

Positioning the Lace Closure

Follow the steps given below:

Aligning the Closure: Place the 2x6 lace closure over your scalp, perfectly aligning it with your natural hairline. Hair pins are great for securing.

Check that the lace closure sets flatly on your scalp with no folds and turns.

Check the Fit: It’s essential to check that the 2x6 closure provides the required coverage. Ensure it blends seamlessly with your natural hairline for a natural appearance. A mirror check can help make any necessary adjustments.

Sewing the Closure

Thread the Needle: Put a thread matching your hair color into a needle. Now, stitch the closure with natural hair to fit it securely. This will prolong the closure’s stay over the head. The matching thread helps in seamless blending. For more security, double the thread.

Start Sewing: Use anchor stitches to secure the closure, starting from one side and going all around. Sewing 2x6 lace closures should be done along the perimeter to secure its stay over the scalp. Tiny and tight stitches should be used.

Secure the Ends: After completing stitching, tie a firm knot in the thread and cut the extra one.

Blending the Closure

Cut the Lace: Cut the excess lace from the closure. Avoid cutting too close to closure to give a margin to the lace.

This will prevent hair from unraveling. Use sharp tools to make the process precise.

Style the Hair: Detangle the hair with a brush designed for closures. Now, you can style your hair as you wish. You can opt for any style, from straight to voluminous curls.

Heat Protectant: Heat protectant spray is an essential tool for closure users. It helps maintain the closures’ natural texture.

Blend with Natural Hair: While styling, ensure it blends seamlessly with your natural hair.

Using adhesive

Using adhesives for attachment is optional, depending on your needs. However, it is recommended for those who want a more secure hold for 2x6 lace closures.

Amount of adhesive: A thin layer of adhesives is required and applied over the lace. Make sure it is not in lump form. A small amount of adhesive must be used so that it does not seep through the lace.

Way of Application: Apply the adhesive evenly on the lace. Allow it to sit for a few minutes so the closure remains in place while styling. Check the closure well before styling to ensure it does not slip out.

Q. What can I do to avoid my lace closure from shifting?

A: To prevent the lace closure from coming off, ensure it is well secured, sew-in, or glued down. Do not sweat or immerse it in water; if you have to, use a powerful lace adhesive.

Q: How should I handle it if my lace closure begins to shed? 

A: Hair loss is natural, but if hair is shedding more than it should be, it is prone to damage. To reduce the amount of hair shed daily, do not brush wet hair and prefer using a wide-tooth comb.

Q: What lace closure should I wear depending on my hair type?

Q: Can I wash the lace closure and use it again? 

A: You can reuse lace closures as often as you want, but only if proper 2x6 closure care is taken. Rinse it well after use and keep it in a dry and relaxed environment to ensure it lasts long and serves you well.
