Understanding Hair Density

You must not be unfamiliar with the term “Hair Density” which refers to the amount of hair ventilated in a hair system base.

Some clients could get confused--- Hair density doesn’t refer to the individual hairs but the overall thickness or thinness of the hair system .

At Hairbro, hair density is divided into six categories, from heavy to extra light.

“Heavy” hair density is like that of a young lady with unbelievably thick hair who’s in her twenties; while “Extra light” hair density is similar to that of an old man who’s in his seventies or sixties.

Choose the right density for your hair system can make your appearance undetectable. It’s not uncommon to see many of our clients to want to have a lot of hair when they start losing hair and feel the necessity to wear a hair system. However, request too much more hair than the natural or realistic amount for a person of their age can make your look very easy to be detected.

It’s important to find yourself a right hair system with matching hair density.

It’s tempting to have a very thick head of hair, but bulky hair systems can be very uncomfortable and hard to manage. So at the very beginning, it’s best to avoid the unnecessary annoyance.

For these reasons — and the fact that we have to pass on the production facilities’ increased cost for heavy density — unless you are blending with unusually thick growing hair, we rarely recommend a heavy density.

Typical densities by age and gender

The chart below gives you an idea which densities are most appropriate for each age and gender. But don’t worry, our hair consultant will discuss this with you to ensure your system is ordered with the best density for you.

Keep in mind that men and women with normal hair growth and recession don’t typically lose the same amount of hair in the same areas. Nor is it expected for a woman to show a lot of scalp, even in advancing years. For that reason, the age-appropriate density recommendations are not the same for each gender.

 Density scales can be very different from vendor to vendor, so don’t assume ours is the same as another vendor.
