What is Wig Density?
How full or sparse are your lace wigs?
Whatever answer you give to this question is defined as wig density.
It’s as simple as that.
Wig densities are usually classified in percentage ranges.
These include 90%, 100-110%. 120-130%, 150%, 180%, and 200%.
These percentages are a measure of how much hair is on your wig.
Like you can imagine, the higher the percentage, the greater the hair density.
More generally, terms like extra light, light, medium, full, heavy, and extra heavy are used to describe wig density.
Understand that wig density doesn’t in any way refer to the hair texture.
Hence, it’d be wrong to use words like ‘soft’ or ‘hard’ to describe density.
Even when you see us describe density with words like thick or thin, it is only to describe the hair volume.
Density is different from the individual thickness/thinness of hair strands or even hair length. You could therefore have thin strands but thick hair density. Hair density is strict ‘hair number.’
Is 130 density good for a wig?
130 density is not only good for a wig; it is one of the best and most common around.
It is, in fact, the standard density of any wig.
Why? Read on.
What does 130 hair density mean?
Run your fingers through your human hair this moment.
Its fullness is a perfect representation of the texture of 130 density wigs.
These are hence also called natural/medium since they are the closest wigs to human hair.
They are neither too thin (sparse) nor too thick (full)… they’re simply ‘normal.’
They have fewer hairs in the hairline and gradually transition to thicker/fuller ones. This is how they achieve that natural hair appearance.
The 120 and 130 densities are usually classified together since there really aren’t any significant differences between them.
What is the difference between 130 density and 150 density?
Like the 120, the 150 density is somewhat similar to 130 hairs. There is one significant observable difference, however:
While 130 hairs have medium density, 150 hairs are of full-thickness.
Hence, like you may have guessed, the only difference is in the hair volume.
If you’d want to maintain the same natural look a 130 density wig affords but with a slightly fuller appearance, the 150 is your best option.
