What Is Wig Density?

Wig density refers to the amount of wig added to the wig cap, usually determined by knots per square inch. Different densities will have different effects on the appearance and style of the wig. Wig density is usually expressed as a percentage, which can more clearly and intuitively express the thickness of the wig. Here is a wig density chart for your reference.

How Is UNice's Wig Density Classified?

According to density, UNice's wigs can be divided into 130%, 150%, 180%, 200%, and 250%. You can find the corresponding category page on our website. Below, I will recommend several representative wigs for you. If you like them, you are welcome to buy them.

150% - The Most Popular Wig Density

Compared to 130 density wig, 150 density wig provides a fuller, more voluminous appearance. This density is the most popular and can perfectly suit straight or curly hair.

130% - The Most Natural Wig Density

130% human hair wig density is the most natural density because it is closest to human natural hair density. Wigs of this density are very natural in appearance, lightweight, and suitable for novices to wear. If you like a natural look, you might as well choose a 130% wig density.

130 density wigs are one of the most common density choices among wig wearers. They are medium-sized wigs that look more like natural hair than many other wig densities.

Note: 200 and 250 density wigs are ultra-high density wigs with full thickness. This type of wig requires more care, but you should not pull the hair too frequently as it may increase shedding. Therefore, these two types of high-density wigs are more suitable for people with experience in wearing and caring for them.

How To Choose A Suitable Wig Density?

If you are wondering how to choose a wig density, we have the following suggestions for you. You can specifically choose from hairstyle, length, hair texture, etc.

Wig Length

If you want to buy a long wig, I recommend you choose a high-density wig. High-density wigs look more fluffy and full. On the contrary, it is better to get low-density wigs, which makes the style lighter.

Short wig (12''-16''): It is recommended to choose a density of 130%-180%. The hairstyle will be more refreshing and not bulky.

Medium-length wig (18''-22''): When the wig is longer, the density is recommended to be 180%-200%, and the style will be more fluffy.

Long wigs (24'-30''): 250% density will ensure your hair is fuller overall.

Natural Hair Density

If you want the wig to be similar in density to your hair, please choose it based on your hair density. Generally speaking, I recommend that people with fine hair choose a wig density of 130% to 150%, and people with thick hair can choose a high-density wig of 150% to 250%.

Wig Texture

The impact of density on straight and curly hair is obvious. The curl of a curly human hair wig will visually increase the hair volume, so the density of the wig does not need to be very high to look fluffy and full. For straight hair, the density will affect the thickness of the hair.

FAQs About Wig Density

What is the best density for a wig?

It is difficult to say what is the best density for wigs because the choice of density varies from person to person.

Is 150 density good for a wig?

The 150 density in a wig is a relatively moderate density and the style is very natural.

What is natural hair density?

A person's natural hair density is approximately 100% to 120% and may vary based on genetic factors, dietary habits, and region.

Does the thickness of the hair affect the density of the wig?

Yes, but not necessarily thick hair means high density, and thin hair means low density. The main thing is to look at the hair distribution density of the wig cap.


Finally, I would like to remind you that because each company may have different definitions of product density, it is best to pay attention to the weight of the wig when purchasing, in case you buy a wig that does not meet your expectations.
