How long can you wear a lace frontal?
How long does a lace frontal last? This will be a difficult question for the one who has not worn a lace frontal before. But we suggest you remove it after 2-4 weeks. For the lifespan, there is not a confirmed answer. Generally speaking, real human hair lace frontal or closure can last about 6 months. Of course, it can serve you a long time if you bought a top-quality virgin hair closure and take good care of it.
Do lace frontals damage your hair?
Lace frontals are very good products for bundle hair users, and they will protect our natural hair if they are properly installed. But Closures while mimicking a real scalp, cannot be treated like a real scalp. You must handle it with care. Each hair is individually ventilated into the base, knotted, and secured with a strong adhesive.
Based on the construction of a closure, you should comb/brush the hair from the ends, working your way up to the root while holding the hair at the root to prevent tension. Hair loss on closures is relatively easy because it is not weft like extensions. Improper care of your closure will cause balding and unfortunately, there is no way to fix this.
How much does it cost to install a lace frontal?
There are many factors to influence the price of a lace frontal, the lace size, lace material, hair length, hair color, even density. For example, a blonde frontal will be at a higher price than a natural black shade due to the extra processing and costs to dye the hair. In common, the price of lace closure or a frontal is higher than other extensions which were made by machine.
Because all of the lace frontals are made by hand. The hair is hand-woven into the lace hat one by one. You will find the price is between $50 - $200 on the market. Just contact the supplier to get the coupon code if you want to make an order of lace front, and you can shop them with bundle weave together to save more money. Of course, you can try a 13x6 lace wig or 13x4 wig instead. The wigs are easier and more convenient.
