What kinds of hair density are available for the wigs?
Hair density is simply how many hairs are added to the wigs. In earlier years, high density was necessary because the base materials were usually made of thicker materials and would be easily exposed if hair density were low.
More recently, with the advance of thinner base materials such as lace and thin skin, low density tends to look more natural especially with the see through look along the hairlines. You can chose different hair density in different areas of the base.
We generally recommend light density at the hairline and crown gradually increasing to medium density then medium density throughout the lace wig (blended well).
Density is hard to gauge from photos and a lot depends on your hair length, how curly it is, how dark it is, the lighting, etc. The pictures below are of a factory density book (no bleached knots here!) which contains industry standard densities of 50%, 80%, 100%, 130%, 150% and 180%. Looking at our photos page you will see how various densities look in various colors and lengths on our clients.
This is 50% density, or “extra-light”
This is a great density on a lace base with bleached knots.
This is 80% or “light”
Like real hair, it shows a fair amount of scalp but is also a good full young healthy head of hair.
This is 100% or “light-to medium”
Normal density that offers light airy part, Full head of healthy hair.
This is 130% or “medium”
This is only called medium because these names are derived from the ladies wig industry. 130% is maybe okay for a woman who wants her hair to look full and volumnious.
This is 150% or “medium-heavy”
Nice density for a ladies wig, very full and thick, nice density for yaki textures.
This is 180% or “heavy”
The 180% density is a common density for wig industry, many women like hair to look very full, and youthful, the 180% is nice density for woman.
