    Posted: Feb 16 2014 at 9:39am
I bought a silk closure that's a little too thick. I've searched through threads and YouTube and the only way I saw how to thin it is to tweeze it or use thinning shears. Is this the only way to fix it? I've tried tweezing it a little and it doesn't seem like I was seeing any progress. Any other suggestions?

I have the same problem but mine is curly and worn behind hairline so it's not really a problem. 
Maybe try to comb it to death, so that it will volontarily shed ? Confused

You mentioned thinning shears are these the same as the thinning combs? I've used these (purchased at Sally's) with quite a bit of success over the years.
Good luck to you.

Yes! It's scissors with a comb edge that thins the hair out. I saw where people said it can cause shirt hairs in the closure, so I'm unsure if I should use it. And with the closure being thick it seems I need to focus on pulling hair out of the base of the closure.

Yes. That's true. It can leave short hairs behind. So, it looks like strand by strand tweezing may be the best option. Hopefully some of the vets on this board will chime in.
