While wearing a pair of hair closure, it will either be a lace closure or a silk base closure. What is the difference between Lace closure and Silk base closure?
To ensure you well informed of the two hair closure types, here are some of the differences Between Lace Closure and Silk Base Closure:
The foundation of lace closure and silk closure
Lace closure: The base of lace closure is of course- lace. Hair strands rooted through tiny holes. The installation of lace closure is fairly easy and can blend well with your own hair. Lace closures usually are thinner and lay flatter on your head allowing for a more natural hairline. The defect of lace closures is that you will have to do some kind of bleaching or add some material underneath in order to make it look as natural as possible. You will also see “gridlines” of the lace itself, which will call for you to make some adjustments.
Silk base closures: The hair strands are installed in a silk material which is very skin like and is strengthened with a piece of lace. Silk base closure tend to last longer and, a very important point for some women, don’t needs any bleaching. Moreover, silk base closures tend to look the most natural, which makes it a favorite amongst a lot of weave wearers.

It cannot be reiterated enough about the importance of making your sew in look as natural as possible. With that, though the lace of closures can come in different colors, they are still very much transparent so you will see whatever it lays on.
On the other hand, silk closures are not as transparent because there is a layer of material, which we discussed above, that gives you the look of hairs coming out of a natural scalp.
