Hair density refers to the degree of hair volume on the hair system. The higher the hair density, the more hair there is on the system. As the number of new customers purchasing from Lordhair has been growing at a record speed over the past couple of months, a large amount of questions and feedbacks on the hair density of their hair systems has drawn the attention  of our team members as many of them, especially those who customize their hairpieces for the first time, are struggling with figuring out how it matters to their hair system experiences and what hair density best fits themselves. So we decided to have them cleared up for you!

At Lordhair, hair density is classified into 6 different levels of options, ranging from extra light to light, medium light, medium, medium heavy and lastly, heavy, from the lowest to the highest. Choosing the right hair density in consideration of your age and your existing hair volume plays a crucial role of guaranteeing a natural and realistic look whether you customize your hairpiece yourself or go for one of our stock options in a wide variety. So it is definitely not the case that high levels of hair density necessarily lead to more natural looking appearances. To begin with, extra light is the one with the least amount of hair that looks very sparse. So it’s only ideal for elder wearers in their late 60s or early 70s who typically have a much less than average hair volume due to advanced aging status. Then it comes the light option, of which the hair volume obviously steps up to another level with considerably more hair than the extra light. People in their 50s and early 60s tend to find it to be a good match. Next comes the most common option ever selected by our customers, medium light. This hair density has proved to be the most natural-looking one out of all the 6 options in general, particularly for those younger folks. That is also why the very most of our stock hairpieces are featured with this level of hair density. Medium and medium heavy are mostly favored by our customers in their 20s as the hair loss conditions at this life stage are usually not as serious yet and a head of dense hair also manages to decently complement their youthful faces. Lastly, we have the heavy, which is rarely selected by our customers cause it looks too dense to present a very natural look.

The above sums up all the hair densities available at Lordhair. However, aside from age, the volume of your existing hair that’s not covered by the hairpiece also matters significantly. To make for a realistic look, you need to make sure the hair system is well blended into your existing hair for showing an undetectable brink of the piece. To achieve that, we recommend you choose the density that most approximates your own hair density. If you are still not sure what hair density is the right one for you or you want to be sure that you have chosen the right density when buying custom hair systems, please reach out to our industry expert by emailing support@lordhair.com for assistance!
