- The myth is a heavy density hair system means longer shelf life of the system. This is a myth because the durability of the hair system solely depends on the after-care taken and on the workmanship. Hence, if you choose the heavy density type of hair system then you would end up choosing the system that will be a mismatched one and would give you an unnatural look.

- Please consider the hair densities below and choose the right one matching your own natural hair.
- Hair density is basically the amount of hair growing on the head. Hair density is calculated by counting the hair growing in 1 sq. inch (that is to say-2.5 cms) area of your scalp. You might have often heard your stylist saying that you have thick hair; by that they means that your hair density is thick. An average head of a person has approximately around 2,200 strands of hair per square inch and has a total of 100,000 hairs. Usually, hair density is classified as thin, medium, and thick. Hair density of a person has nothing to do with the texture of the hair.
The latest trend is inclining towards lighter hair densities. Keeping the trend in mind we have several light or thick hair densities at your service so that we can provide you with a real and natural hair system. We have mentioned below some important factors that you need to keep in consideration while choosing the right hair density:
Know the density of your naturally grown hair:
It is very crucial to know the density of your naturally growing hair in order to effectively choose a hair system flawlessly matching your own one.
Age is also a factor determining an effective hair system:
Age is another crucial factor helping you to choose the correct hair density. To be more specific; say you are a young man then thicker (medium) type of hair density will suit you more than an old man who will look better in lighter hair density.
Hair Style also plays a vital role in choosing an effective hair density:
Hairstyles contribute in giving your hair a natural and real look. Thick pattern of hair shall suit better to a layered hairstyle. One can go for adding bouncy curls to a thin hair density to make it look fuller and thicker
Some common questions asked about density:
Q1: Do you use the same density scale as used by other companies?
No. We all know that all hair system companies use somewhat similar types of density scale but the scales are not exactly the same. We deal with a wide range of densities ranging from 30 strands of hair per sq.cm to 150 strands of hair per sq.cm, so the 30’s one is probably the thinnest one and 150’s one has the thickest density.
Q2: Will the base design get affected by my choice of density?
Surely it will affect! If you go for a thin density hair system then we will advise you a smooth as well as invisible Hollywood base to give you a natural look. And if you decide to go with a thick hair density then we shall advise you a heavy, thick base. If the hair density is on the lighter side then the base material should definitely be a finer, smoother one. Thus, it is important to keep in mind the hair density you shall have while choosing the base materials.
Q3: After the unit is delivered can I adjust the density?
You can adjust the density post the unit is delivered but we won’t recommend you to do so. When the whole process of hair system is completed there shall be no remnants of stubbles in the base, delivering a natural appearance. However, the density can easily be thinned by a thinning shear but the problem faced is that the hair system shall be thinned as close as possible to the base, leaving stubbles of hair in the base. These stubbles shall give you an unpleasant feeling upon touched. NOTE: Thinning has nothing to do with bending of hair.
Q4: Can the density be different across different parts of the unit?
Yes, the density across different parts of the unit can be different. But in this, you shall look unusual and we do not recommend this. However, this option may give you an unnatural yet a real look and might also follow the KISS theory that is to “Keep It Simple and Stylish”.
Q5: What density should a man in 60s choose?
Hmm…, we will advise the man to go for a hair system of more than 60 hair per sq.cm, only if he does not have a special hair density.
Q6: For a female, are the density recommendations different?
No, there is no such rule. But usually, females prefer to have higher hair density compared to men.
Q7: Between what density percentages can I order from you?
We offer densities between 30 – 150 hair strands per square centimetre and all the hair system is hand –tied. Hair system is all about the seamless connection between a tool and an art (not science), thus, you can never get more hair strands than the above mentioned in per square centimetre of your scalp.
Q8: Is there any maximum density for full lace or lace front hair systems?
Yes. You can order any density with the lace base. But logically, speaking, it is not ideal to order medium to full hair density with lace as you will not be able to see through it. Conventionally, ace front with medium to full density is used with the lace.
Q9: If all the densities come in the same price then shouldn’t I be ordering for maximum hair?
Even if having maximum hair will bear the same cost choosing heavy hair density may not match your own hair or your age and will give you an unnatural and unreal look.
Q10: I had ordered the same density twice but then why one unit is lighter than the other?
Hope you will understand the reason we will explain now. Just the way you cannot find two exactly same persons in the World not even twins, you cannot find two units exactly similar even if they have the same density. Designing and making a hair system is an art form and the hair system processes are all done by hand, thus, it may have some differences.
