Why are closures/frontals so hard to get? May 11, 2021
How to dye your closure or frontal without ruining the lace?
Coloring your closure or frontal is a really fitting and rewarding task to do in order to achieve your desired style.
Therefore, if you’ve colored your bundles already, the next task will now be to successfully achieve the same color with your closure/frontal.
Keep in mind that this step will have to be done with precision and skill in order to protect the lace from being stained.
This process might also take approximately 45 mins to an hour to complete, but with patience and time set aside, you will be able to complete the task in record time.
Firstly, let us discuss the things needed in order to complete the task ahead.
Things you will need:
- Mixing bowl and Brush
- Rat-tail comb
- Mannequin head; T-pins
Prep – Use the Vaseline to moderately cover the underside of the lace. You will need to do this in order to prevent the dye from seeping through onto the lace.
Secure - Turn the lace back towards the frontside, then by using the T-pins, pin the lace piece on the mannequin head securely.
Apply – Follow the dying instruction on the product, mix the dye into the mixing bowl. Then, using a small brush or utensil, apply the dye. Do this by angling the brush in a straight up position, then carefully begin to brush from the hair from the root area upwards.
Repeat – Continue until each strand is coated with color. You can do this by parting the hair into small sections by with the rat-tail comb.
Rinse – After leaving the hair color on the hair for an adequate amount of time based on the instructions given on the dye, you may now rinse the hair. Proceed to do this with the closure or frontal facing downwards with the underside of the lace facing in an upward position. This will help to further prevent the dye from seeping through the lace.
- Wash and Dry - After all hair color residue are completely removed from the hair, shampoo then apply conditioner. Finally, let the hair air dry if possible.
Now you’re all done!
