What is Lace Wig Density?

Hair density refers to how much hair is used on the wig cap to create fullness. Hair density is also called hair thickness. The perception of density determined is by the type of hair used and how it is styled. For example, curly hair and hair spray creates more volume and fullness. Curly, wavy and kinky textured hair expands when combed out and appear thicker. Silky straight hair textures have less volume and fullness. Therefore, two wigs with the exact hair density will have different volume appearance based on the hair style and texture.

For the most natural look, you need to select a density that is close to your own. Lace Wigs with density less than 100% may thin sooner and need to be repaired more quickly. Our stock full lace wigs and lace front wigs come with 120% medium density. And we can also add the hair density to 150% density within 3-6 business days.
