Find a suitable Lace Closure
You sew in your Lace Closure on the top of your head or the side of your hair to get your weave-look to appear even more natural. The front is made up of a net of hand-knitted hair strands for a lifelike scalp. The net is cut after application which makes it easy to ensure it follows your hairline.

Weaving tutorial for beginners
There are several ways to sew in your hair when using the weave method. If you are in doubt, you can always ask your hairdresser for help, tips and advice for your type of hair.
- Begin by braiding your hair into small, French braids and then sew the ends to the braid/braids or use a bonnet. The braids then form the pattern which you sew your hair weft to, such as a middle/side part.
- Using a needle and thread, sew your hair weft to the braids. Use a languette stitch (the thread is under the needle).
- Tie the braids on top of your head, leaving a bare section. Measure and sew your Lace Closure in place using a needle and thread. Start on the sides and work your way around.
- Then cut the net along the hairline on your forehead. Make sure you don't cut too close to the start of the hair.
Tips! If you like to put your hair up into a pony tail, try sewing the hair weft under the braid for a more natural look.

Styling curly hair
- Always use recommended products for styling and washing your curly hair.
- Comb through the hair before washing it. Start with the tips and work upwards. This makes it easier to straighten out any tangles. If you have combed the hair before washing instead of afterwards, it is easier to keep the shape of your curls. If you still need to untangle it after washing, try using your fingers. The hair does not get as frizzy and the curls stay softer longer.
- For more defined curls, let the hair self-dry after washing. For more volume, use a blowdryer with a diffuser. Always use a heat protectant to protect the hair against wear and apply a leave-in cream before you dry it. That way, the curls keep their shape longer.
- Permed hair needs a great deal of moisture, by using shampoo and balsam but also a hair mask.
- Sometimes certain curls can straighten faster than others, usually those closest to your face that you touch more than others. If you don't want to wash the hair, try using a curling iron on the curls to restore their bounce
Daily care of your hair weft
- Style it your way. You can straighten, curl and style our human hair extensions just like your own hair.
- Braid hair before sleeping, exercising and playing sport.
- Comb hair regularly; at least once in the morning and once in the evening.
- Always use the recommended Rapunzel® wide-toothed comb for curly and afro-textured hair.
- Use the Rapunzel® range of recommended haircare and styling products for curly hair.
- Check any tape, rings and lengths to avoid tangles.
- Always comb your hair before showering and never brush when wet.
- Let your hair dry naturally or use a hair diffuser if blow-drying. And never go to sleep with wet hair.
- Sun, wind and water will damage your hair. Avoid bathing and swimming in sea water or chlorinated water, and braid your hair in humid weather conditions.
- To keep your hair extensions in great condition, we don’t recommend colouring or bleaching.
- Please keep in mind that hair extensions are not recommended for use by those taking certain medications and/or with certain illnesses.
- When removing your hair extensions, follow our instructions carefully and always use the recommended products to avoid damaging your own hair.
- Remember, all heat styling can cause hair damage and affects its overall condition.
