Lace closure means closure that is made with a transparent nylon lace material with a breathable mesh. They can be divided into two types, depending on lace texture used. One is Swiss lace closure, and the other is French lace closure.
Both types are undetectable. Both of the two laces allow ventilation and comfort. Women prefer lace closures because the lace moves more freely and allow the hair to have a natural hair movement.
When it comes to differences, French lace is more durable and holds up better over the long run than Swiss lace. Swiss lace is slightly thinner, so it is less detectable but tears easier.
To the untrained eye, it is hard to tell the difference between the two lace types. However, for first time users, French lace closures are recommended.
Thin skin closure means closure that is made with a non-transparent polyurethane material that resembles a scalp. The thin skin is so very natural looking and light that gives the illusion that hair is growing from the scalp.
Thin skin closures are primarily worn by people who suffer hair loss and baldness. Their scalps are bare and free from hair so that the thin skin can conform to the head.
Thin skin closure can be accommodated any kind of attachment-bonded with sewing or glue. Both are very durable and natural looking if installed properly.
Although thin skin closures have so many advantages, their downside can't be ignored. The thin skin is without meshes, so it does not allow the scalp to breath. Thin skin is constructed with a plastic like material, so thin skin closure can used in cooler climates, as thin skin will be very hot in tropical climates. So thin skin closure are not recommended now.
