Okay I did it and I LOVE IT. It isn't bulky at all and the parts aren't as shiny as you would think they would be. My only issue is with the closure it's self and that's because it's so dense. If I try and make my own part it isn't as clear and clean as the part that came it it. It would definitely need a small amount of tweezing. If you're wondering about the roots and why they are brown it's because I bleached my knots and the roots of the closure on purpose then I went and dyed the lace and roots with rit dye. I was thinking that it should all blend because it's all the same color. I accidentally dyed it too dark but for some reason I love it.

The silicone sheets don't last long. Especially if you oil your own scalp. Mine falls off all the time. Good job OP I might have to give this a try.

You can buy it from CVS or Walgreens.

Ok. I will have to go out and find some and experiment with that next. And thanks. And I'm not sure how long this will stay put it's supposed to be waterproof and all that so well see. And I'm not big on oils in my hair. Never have been doesn't seem to do much for my hair

i tried this method a few yrs ago and after a couple of washes the adhesive wore off so i ended up having to sew it on anyway.

I've never done this method, but I've used proflex tape all around the perimeter to adhere the closure and it works great.

did it alter your closure in any way? Was there residue etc?
