There are many factors you need to consider when buying a wig, such as density, length, color, etc. So do you know the difference between different densities of wigs? Many customers are just confused about the density, if you are confused about the different densities of wigs and don't know what wig density is right for you, this article will clear your doubts and help you understand everything about it!
What Is Wig Density?
Wig density is defined as the thickness of the hair on your lace wig, it means the amount of hair on each wig cap, and is a measure of the fullness or volume of a wig, usually expressed as a percentage ranging from extra light (about 60%) to extra heavy (200% and above). Obviously, the higher the density percentage, the fuller it looks; the lower the density percentage, the thinner it looks. The hair density of a healthy person is usually around 120%.
Why Does Wig Density Matter?
Appearance usually affects people's first impression of you, and hairstyle has a great influence on our appearance, full or thin hair has different effects on our appearance. Imagine what it would look like if you had thick and shiny hair for parties, weddings, or even everyday shopping. It will boost your confidence and attract most people's attention. However, people with thinning or balding hair are somewhat frustrated by this problem, as an imperfect hairstyle can affect a person's appearance and self-confidence. This is why hair density is important, so you should choose a wig density that works for you.

100%-110%(Lower Density Wig): This wig density is still on the light side, but the coverage is significantly higher than 60%-90% density wigs, if your hair is naturally thinner, this density is a good choice.

How To Choose The Right Wig Density

Medium Density Wig(130%-180%): These wigs provide more volume than low-density wigs, but it is not an overwhelming amount. Allows you to create a variety of cute and elegant looks to show your charm.
Higher Density Wigs(190%-250%): These wigs provide you with extreme fullness. Most celebrities and influential people have these density wigs. If you like this density of wig, I suggest you try to choose long hair (24 inches or more), because then it will look more natural.
