If you are new to wearing wigs, it can be a little bit daunting and confusing as to how many bundles of hair you need. If you are looking for a full head of hair, then you might want to go with 4 or 5 bundles with closure. On the other hand, if you want only a few inches of length then 2 or 3 will be fine.
Here are a few factors to guide you along making the right choice:
Consider the Hair Density
The main thing that will determine whether or not your wig is going to be long lasting and look great is the density (how many hairs per square inch). The denser your hair is, the fuller your style will be and less likely it is that you’ll see thinning over time (especially if you’re wearing it daily). The less dense it is, the more likely it is that you’ll see thinning over time and have some bald spots in certain areas like where your parting lies.
Check Your Hair Length
If your hair is short or medium-length, then 3 bundles of 100% human virgin hair would be sufficient for you. However, if your hair is long and thick, then 4-6 bundles of 100% human virgin remy extensions might be needed to achieve a fuller look. So, the first step to be sure of your hair length is to measure your hair. To do this, simply take a measuring tape and wrap it around the full length of your head from front to back. This will give you an idea of how long your hair is, but it’s not always an accurate reflection of the size of your head.
Determine Your Hair Type
If your natural locks are thick but fine in texture and density, then 3 bundles could work well for your needs. However, if your natural tresses are thick but coarse in texture and density, then 4-5 bundles are the best for you. What you may need to always know is that People with thin and fine hair usually need more bundles than those with thick and coarse hair because they tend to look messy at first glance when they don’t have enough volume in their heads of hair. Synthetic hair can also be used in combination with human hair for added thickness and volume when worn in a bun or ponytail style. The same applies for people who have thinning hair as well as those who want to add length without adding thickness to their natural strands.
Consider Your Hair Growth Rate
Another thing that you have to consider before buying your wig is your hair growth rate. If your hair grows very fast, then maybe two bundles would be enough for you. But if it grows slowly and slowly, then maybe three or four bundles would be better for you.
Buying bundles for longer hair can be confusing, because it’s hard to predict how the hair will look when you finally receive it. To help, there are a few things you can do. Since lace closures is a popular way to wear 3 bundles with lace closure wig, so read blogs that review various lace closure hair products and ask your fellow curly girls (or product companies) which are best. The more information you have going into your purchase the better!
