What is a frontal?
A frontal is a hair piece that encloses your head. Similar to a closure, but different in that a frontal covers the entire front of your head/hairline. With a frontal, you can pull your hair into a high bun or ponytail with no problem and with it looking amazingly natural, like your real hair. Whereas you may be apprehensive about showing your edges, a frontal covers them and gives you a hairline.
What is the difference between a frontal and a closure?
A closure is often times a 4×4 piece it’s like a perfect square it may vary depending on where you purchase it from, but standard is a 4×4 piece, a frontal goes from ear to ear, your entire front of your head is covered. Both come either in lace or silk based.
Should I get a frontal?
The simple answer is: it depends. Frontals are for people who don’t have edges, they’re not really for people who have full edges because it’s a substitute. if you have edges, and still want to try a frontal, you can and with great results. I definitely suggest frontals, they’re the only things I wear. But frontals are a lot of work. Often times, people will get a frontal install thinking that it is similar to a closure in the sense of easy maintenance, but this is very untrue. If you are one that goes for regular hair appointments (meaning every 2-3 weeks even with a sew-in install), then yes, you should try a frontal. If you’re also someone that doesn’t live a very active lifestyle and doesn’t sweat much, you should get a frontal. But if you’re one to perspire often, or in other words, sweat, then a frontal is probably not the best investment for you to make.
Will a frontal protect my hair?
My answer to this is, it can. It all depends on your upkeep, if you get the proper maintenance, proper install and if you remove your frontal properly.
Are frontals installed with glue or are they sewed in?
Frontals can be installed both ways. They can be installed with glue or they can be glueless. It all depends on the technique requested and most importantly the technique offered by your professional stylist.
Can I reuse my frontal?
As long as you take care of it. As I mentioned, its very easy to put a whole in it or ruin or damage the hair piece. Remember it’s an investment, take care of it as much. As long as it’s not cut up and the adhesive is all removed, feel free to reuse your frontal as many times as you like.
Can I wear my frontal on vacation?
Yes, you can wear it on vacation, your frontal can even get wet, but it can’t get soaked or drenched. So that means, don’t go snorkeling without head gear or expect to get dunked in the pool with no repercussions.
An example for you, if you get in the water, or get dunked or something of that nature, just make sure you don’t tug at it, pull on it or comb it excessively. Instead, comb all your hair to the back, press down on what’s lifting and tie a scarf on your hair. Do not remove the scarf until the area completely dry’s. If you do this, your frontal will stay in place and look fine.
How long does a frontal installation last?
It depends on how you perspire. If you perspire/sweat a lot, it is not going to stay on if it is installed with glue/adhesive. Frontals are not for people who sweat in their head or are really sweaty. If you sweat a lot, it’s not for you because it is not going to stick (if glued). Adhesive and sweat don’t go well together. But overall, frontal installations should last 2-3 weeks (if glued).
In conclusion ladies, overall, your experience with a frontal depends on what type of glue you use and the skill level of your stylist hair.
