How to Choose Hair Density When Purchasing a Hair System?

Views: 2531

Hair density is definitely one of the most crucial factors you need to consider before buying a new hair system. But it is not that easy especially for those who are new to apply. Here is some inspiration for you.

A lot of factors come down to age. If you're quite a young person, obviously more density is likely to be better for you and it's going to look more natural. However, if you're potentially over 40 for instance, then you're likely to require a slightly lower density. Because if you have a heavy density, it's probably not going to look that natural and detectable. For example, if you're a 50-year-old rocking up with the same medium-heavy density as the young, it's gonna look like a wig and people are going to get suspicious. So please make sure it's age-appropriate. 

Let’s get them in percentages, for instance, a light to medium density is 100%, a medium density is 120 percent, a heavy density is about 160. It's really heavy even on a young guy. Frankly speaking, if you see people wearing a heavy density one and it just looks really unnatural unless it's cut really well by a professional stylist. 

Some systems are fairly light to medium density but it looks even thinner because it's very blond. If you've got blonde hair on your system, it will look thinner. It is not actually thinner but it looks thinner because your hair is lighter. 

Density is literally one of the most important things to consider when you're getting a hair system. If you're going to go for a skin system, you might not choose a higher density, because of the actual base itself. It's harder to get higher heavier with a thin skin system and even if you could, it just wouldn't look that natural and it probably feels quite heavy on your head. So if you are going to go for a thin base, light or light-medium would be perfect for you. If you've got French lace or even Swiss lace, you could probably go a bit heavier. 

If you don’t know what various kinds of densities look like, you can find the scales on our website. Just choose the ‘density guide’ tab through this link: We also provide a couple of E-courses, which can definitely give you some ideas.
