How Does a Low Density Hair System Benefit Clients With Thin or Fine Hair?

Are you aware of the market demand for low density hair systems?

Some individual wearers are not overly happy, not because the hair system they receive isn’t good enough, but because the stylist didn’t nail the correct density for a perfect blend.

Though hair density is an indicator many stylists use to determine whether the craftspeople have been cutting corners, many clients with thinner or finer hair need a low density hair system for a natural and consistent look.

What Is a Low Density Hair System?


Based on a commonly used hair density chart, low-density hair features densities below 100%, typically light to light-medium. A low density hair system is primarily suitable for clients with thin or fine hair or older individuals.

What Are the Benefits of a Low Density Hair System?

As a skilled hairstylist or studio owner, consider including low-density hair systems in your inventory to meet market trends and cater to your client’s desires.

Low Density Hair Systems Blend Better for Clients With Thin or Fine Hair

Some people’s hair is so fine and delicate, with hair shafts so thin in diameter, that although they aren’t suffering from hair loss, their hair still appears thin and flat on their heads.

For people with thin, fine hair, an overly thick hair replacement system can easily make it look like a head carelessly covered with a bowl-shaped wig. Sorry, but we don’t want to be reminded of the 1994 Dumb & Dumber characters when choosing toupees for our clients.

A hair system must blend naturally with the remaining hair around the person’s head. Therefore, clients with thin or fine hair in those areas will surely need a low-density hair system to achieve a consistent result.

Older People Need a Low Density Hair System for Age Consistency

Suppose your client is over 50 or approaching 70. In that case, a thick thatch on his head may seem bulky and unnatural, failing to reflect his age. People might easily guess this person is wearing a hair replacement system.

Meanwhile, older clients generally have thinner hair remaining around their heads. Choosing hair systems for them is still about matching the density and achieving a result consistent with their age and their actual hair density.

Enhanced Breathability and Comfort With Low Density Hair Systems

A low density hair system is lightweight and breathable, primarily because it has fewer hairs, which reduces sweat and the risk of allergic reactions by allowing heat to evaporate quickly. Consequently, clients rarely experience allergic reactions. Low-density hair systems are ideal for wear in tropical climates.

LIGHT03 Low Density Hair System at 80% Density

LIGHT03 is an ultra thin skin hair system featuring a 0.03-mm transparent skin base that can be easily attached to the client’s scalp, achieving a natural and realistic look. The hair has an 80% extra-light density, making it ideal for wearers seeking a low density hair system. 

This low density hair system is upgraded from HS25, one of our bestselling skin hair systems, with a 0.03mm skin base. We adjusted its density to 80% to suit clients with thin or fine hair so that the hair blends well with the client’s natural hair for the most natural look.

For older individuals, we also offer varying proportions of gray hair. Since older people generally have thinner and grayer hair, a combination of gray and lower density provides them with an appearance ideally consistent with their age.

Both LIGHT03 and HS25 feature a 0.03mm skin base and are ventilated using v-loops to give it a knotless effect and keep it looking natural and swift. Its low density also improved its breathability and comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hair System Density

1. How do I know my client’s hair density to find a hair system that matches it?

The easiest way is to check the client’s hair on the sides and back. A low density hair system may be suitable and blend well if the client has thin or fine hair in these areas. Keeping a hair density testing machine in your studio, including a hand-held scanner, may be worthwhile. You can use it to scan the client’s hair in specific areas, such as the temples or the back. Its computer system will determine the exact density as a percentage, providing a numerically accurate result. You can then select a hair system with the same density.

2. Is the base type determined by hair density?

Hair density does not solely determine the choice of base; however, it does influence it. An ultra-thin skin base, typically 0.02 to 0.03 mm thick, can accommodate low- to medium-light-density hair used to create a quality low density hair system. Excessive hair can lead to tearing on delicate bases. In contrast, bases measuring 0.08 mm in thickness can support denser hair owing to their thicker and more robust construction. The most durable bases are monofilaments, which can accommodate the densest hair due to their robust structure.
