I remember when closures first came on the scene a few years ago. Silk was the holy grail and lace always got the Dead face. Everyone swore up and down that silk was better, it looks so realistic, you don't have to do anything to it, blah blah blah. And on the other side of the spectrum lace was too much work with the knot bleaching and could never look as realistic as the silk.

So in the beginning I was hooked on silk because everyone "SAID" it was better  (more than likely because they are more expensive).

Fast forward a couple of years, and I now cannot stand silk closures. I think they are the most unrealistic things ever and no amount of tea steeping or Rit dying can ever get it to look like a natural scalp. Sorry but no. And they have that hideous demarcation in the front where the silk ends and the lace starts....ugh, I just can't Pinch

I am now a strong believer lace is the way to go. A piece of skin colored pantyhose underneath and you're good to go.

Anyway, the question is...how do you ladies feel? Do you prefer silk or lace? And why?

LACE is better in my opinion. Yeah you have to bleach the knots but once that is done u can just put a pantyhose or any other material underneath it and you are good.
WHY I DO NOT LIKE SILK? 1 out of 1,000 will a SILK closure have a nice color but most of the time the scalp is TOO WHITE. It is like 200000 shades lighter than the the person and although the scalp is lighter but when it looks like it belongs to a scalp of a person of the white race....not a good look. Yeah u can dye it but most of the time ppl do not get it right and also the line of demarcation ppl can argue THIS all they want alright but IS THERE in some cases.

I think LACE can lay flatter and look more realistic once it doctored.

The only thing ppl can say about lace is BLEACHING THE KNOTS........but seriously.....I rather that then to be dying and dying it until I get the right color of a scalp which the chances aren't good.


LACE FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ALL IN FAVOR SAY IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!

I like the concept of the "scalp" on silk closures. I must say I like the way lace closures look installed more than I like the way silk closures look installed.

I've only had a silk closure installed and I really liked it, but for my next install, I'm getting a lace closure instead.
