Why are so many people opting for a 5x5 closure vs a frontal?
The biggest trend right now is getting a frontal look with anything but an actual lace frontal. What this simply means is that everyone wants to cover their hairline, but no wants all the challenges of a lace frontal.
This is not to say frontals are a bad choice because at the end of the day, the only real way to cover the entire hairline is with the use of either a 13x4 or a 13x6 lace frontal.
Things to consider when making the ultimate choice between a 5x5 and a frontal:
Though it’s very appealing to have your entire hairline covered, many people nowadays are more aware of the consequences of this option. Without proper care, installation or removal, the use of a frontal can cause an array of hair problems. Therefore, what a 5x5 closure provides is an alternative that will look just as good.
On the other hand, if you feel as if you are equipped enough to handle a frontal, then either option will be fairly good for you. The key to making sure you are satisfied and cautious of your natural hair beneath is to ensure that your frontal is properly installed and carefully removed.
With the pace at which the hair industry is evolving, your choice between a closure and a frontal will surely become easier and easier over time. But for now, be sure to pick the best option that will work best for you!
