Is your wig natural hair or synthetic?
Kameymall human hair wigs are not expensive, but as the name implies, they look great. Therefore, they need more care than other wigs.

How much hair do you want to have?
As you might infer from the options we gave you at the beginning, natural human hair wigs come in different densities. Interestingly, a higher density wig doesn’t necessarily mean more natural. Conversely, one of the reasons many hair systems can be detected is that they are too dense.
Ultralight 50% Density: Too light anyway.
- 80% Optical Density: This density allows the scalp to shine through for a more natural look. Not recommended for people with severe hair loss.
- 100% Light Medium Density: Also shows scalp. Works well without the loss of density of bald patches or severe hair loss.
- Medium Density, 120%: The density of almost everyone’s hair wigs today. The scalp is not allowed to be seen.
- Medium-Heavy Density, 140%: This density is only recommended for complete hair loss.
- 160% Heavy Density: Ideal for everyday use, most commonly found in theater environments.
- Overweight Density, 180%: Too dense in any case, not recommended if you’re looking for naturalness.
Think about the clothes or heavy shoes you buy occasionally or keep in your closet, do you use them regularly? We dare not guess. When an item of clothing we wear is uncomfortable, we end up not wearing it or wearing it with disgust. The same goes for wigs.When buying natural wigs, which are usually heavier than synthetic wigs, pay attention to the weight. The weight of a short wig should not exceed 100 grams; the wound above the shoulder should be 150 grams, and the long wig should not exceed 200 grams. Remember: if you feel uncomfortable, you won’t end up using it.
