How a lace hair system is made: what are the benefits and downsides?

New generation hair systems have different constructions, among which lace stands out: a very appreciated material and certainly also an innovative and modern one. It has finally allowed trichological systems which are completely invisible, impalpable and transpiring.

If you think about it, lace, which guarantees both invisibility, impalpability and transpiration, has all those elements which the average user looks for in a modern and innovative hair system.

Indeed, when you wear a hair system you have various aspirations such as:

  • having a completely natural system
  • not feeling it while you are wearing it
  • the system being undetectable, if someone touches your head

So lace hair systems have all these elements and can be considered highly modern systems. This is true even though, unlike many believe, they are not recently created trichological systems, but they have been existing since many years and were used in lots of movies a long time ago, but never sold to normal people.

Normal people were denied to have trichological systems made with this amazing base, since reselling centers had no interest in having happy and satisfied customers, but they wanted customers strictly bound to their company. Customers who are willing to pay heavy and obsolete wigs the similar price of a car. Pay attention to those centers, because if you go buying a hair system there, it is very likely that they will still propose you, under absurd names, the old and very heavy bases they used to sell 20 years ago.

It was the web and e-commerce which just 12 years ago introduced lace trichological systems to the great audience and finally allowed the average user to have very natural and beautiful systems, the same ones Hollywood stars and world celebrities use and all at a fraction of the price.

But what is lace?

Lace is a tulle, a few micron little net, made of cotton and elastic polycarbonates, to which hairs are knotted one by one.

Laces are of different colors such as, transparent, light pink, light brown, light Yellow and brown.

In Newlacecu we prefer the color we called transparent, because we have seen it adapts to all kind of skins and therefore we recommend this color to all our customers, without risking with colors sold by other companies, which often don’t disappear on the skin, as instead transparent does.

Then laces are divided into different type of lace.

The thinnest and most invisible one is called Swiss lace. It is a completely invisible lace which disappears on the skin, even without the need for glue. However it lasts less, indeed it tends to ruin in about half the time compared to other types of laces.

Then there is French lace, a more resistant lace, but completely invisible too. Probably it is the most sold lace among our customers, since as we have just said it guarantees invisibility, but also a long duration over time.

Then there is Korean Lace, which is a way more rigid lace, so also less invisible, but it lasts for a very long period. We could partly compare it to the long lasting monofilament systems.

Hairs are knotted to lace to recreate the user’s hair.

Knots can be of different types, some smaller, but more fragile, others bigger and more visible, but more resistant.

It goes from half knot, perfect for fronts, to single injected knot, which basically has a similar effect to the one the hair has in a skin injected system. There are also single normal knot, double knot and finally multiple knot.

The better the company you choose the more invisible lace knots will be.

But it is not enough to have a small knots, at least on the front, which is the most exposed part of the system, it is also necessary to bleach the knots. The bleaching operation is a quite complicated operation, which is learned over a long period of time, making lots of tries and with different methods and products. The manufacturing company and single worker skill consists in bleaching knots, but without making hair roots yellow.

As we have said this is not easy and we of Newlacecu believe we are really good at this operation. We invite you to order our systems and compare them to the ones of other companies, which sell products even at 10 times our price. In this way you will see how our work, considering base, knots, and bleaching part, is in general significantly better than the one of other companies, be they manufacturer or mere intermediaries.

Newlacecu over the years, with its own systems, has been taking part all around the world in various quality challenge, organized by users of different forums. It has always been voted as the best company for what concerns product and work quality. It was also mentioned by many world famous forums to help people have the best trichological system at the best price. We consider this very important to understand the quality of our systems and their constancy over time.

You can see our lace systems in our shop and you will also find fantastic discounts for multiple orders of 3 or 6 systems, which often all together cost just a fraction of the cost of a single system in other companies.

That being said, you could think that lace has only benefits and it is the perfect hair system. Indeed, having a completely invisible front, a perfectly impalpable base and a considerable transpiration is what everyone looks for in a hair system; but, like all the things in the world, even lace systems have downsides compared to other trichological systems.

What are these downsides?

  1. Weekly cleaning is more difficult, since the system has a tulle and tends to get more dirty compared to other hair systems. However in our blog you will find, if you are interested, different methods which make the maintenance for lace systems easier.
  2. Less adhesive force, since being a tulle there is less space available to make the base adhere to the skin.

So as all trichological systems, you also need to try the lace system on your skin and personally decide whether it satisfies your needs or not.

If you are not sure about your choice, we invite you to write or call us, showing what your specific needs are and, if you have time, sign up to this forum the American forum about hair systems, where you can interact with thousands of trichological system users and ask them for advice on which is the best hair system for your specific needs.
