1. Why is it important to understand hair density?
Knowing the density of the hair is important because it can help you choose the hairstyle that suits you best. It can also help you choose products that suit your hair. In addition, understanding hair density is important because it can help you choose the necessary measures to care for your hair. Hair density is one of the factors that determine how to best style your hair. Understanding density is very important because it not only determines the styles you can try, but also determines which product is best for you.
Your hairstyle will look natural only if the density of the wig matches the density of the actual hair. Hair density is not as high as possible, the density must be appropriate to present a perfect hairstyle. For example, if you want long hair, you cannot choose Swiss or HD lace wigs. These materials cannot hold such a heavy weight. Therefore, please specify your requirements carefully when ordering. We often encounter many customers who want a wig with a density of 200% or more. Is such a wig really suitable for you? High-density wigs are not only heavy, but also appear to have a large head.
2.What is hair density?
In simple, hair density is the number of individual strands per square inch on the scalp. The average person has about 2,200 strands of hair per square inch on their head. At the same time, on average, people lose between 50-100 hairs per day.
Hair density refers to how thick or thin the collective group of hairs is. That means an individual can have very thin hair but very dense at the same time, or they can have thick, but low-density hair.This explanation may be difficult to understand. You can understand that some people have thinner hair roots. Even if the hair density is high, the hair still looks very few.
Below are pictures of the different density levels that you can choose for your full lace wig. Density is defined as how thick or thin you want your hair to be. The standard density is 130% which is Medium Density. If you do not like your hair to be too thick we suggest starting out with Light to Medium Density.
50% = Extra Light Density
80% = Light Density
100% = Light to Medium Density
130% = Medium Density
150% = Medium to Heavy Density
180% = Heavy Density
3.How Do You Measure Hair Density?
The most tedious of them is the strand test. This method is the counting of each piece of hair. All you have to do is part your hair into a 1-inch square section and count the strands that way. This procedure will have to be done numerous times until every strand has identified. This method can take forever, but it is said to be the most effective.
There is a much easier way to measure your hair density. To do that, tie your hair back and measure the circumference of your tail. If it is less than two inches, then that means you have low-density hair. If it is 2-3 inches, then you have medium-density hair, and if it is four inches and above, then you have high-density hair.
I recommend that you see a professional hairstylist
A hairstylist can gauge your hair density the best because they can conduct the strand count more effectively.
The standard percentage and most popular choice is 130% which is considered Natural/Medium Density. The average healthy human head of hair is considered to be between 120% – 150%.
What should I do if I have low-density hair?
For medium-density hair, you can use a variety of human hair bundles or wigs to enhance your natural texture. For example, try a body wave or curly wig, or other wavy wigs to add volume to your hair.
