Figuring out your hair density.
Ever wondered how dense your hair is?
In this blog post, we’ll be talking about your hair density.
We want to address that hair density and hair thickness are not the same thing.
Hair density is the number of strands you have while your thickness depends on the size of each strand.
Here is a link you could use to help measure your hair density and find out which density you have.
Not only is your density important in which Strongband you choose but in your whole hair care regime. Using the right type of hair products for your hair will make it feel and look healthy.
With our many customers who have already wore Hairstrong these are the general measurements you can use to help with your decision for which hairstrong is perfect for your ponytail.
Nano Tough - less than 2.5 inches circumference.
Original - less than 4 inches in circumference.
Extra Tough - more than 4 inches incircumference
If you’re just on the line for these measures, we suggest to go for the smaller size.
Your hair density, along with your thickness, and hair type are the factors that help determine which Strongband is the perfect size for you because each size was made with your hair in mind.
The Extra Tough is optimally made for very thick, dense, and Type 2-4 hair types.
The Original is optimally made for thin/thick, medium-dense, and 1-4 hair types.
The Nano Tough is optimally made for thin, not dense, and 1-4 hair types.
However, each size is made for "optimal" hair characteristics but can be used in other ways as well.
If you like to wear a bun often for workouts and you fall into the larger end of the original size category, you might want an extra tough to give you that full stability that an original might not.
If you have very thick and dense hair and you want something not as visible or for everyday use, you can use the original or the nano tough for the ends of your braids.
