Lace or Monofilament? I explain the main differences.

On your way in the world of wigs and toupees, you have probably come across the terms mono or lace more than once. They are nothing more than various materials used to produce the bases of the systems to which the hair is then attached.

  • "Lace".

It is one of the most commonly used materials. These are especially beneficial because the hairline is virtually invisible thanks to the natural-looking lace material.
Additionally, they are very light, breathable and comfortable, making them the most popular option for people looking for non-surgical hair replacement systems. However, they can be delicate, so not only do they have less hair density - hair volume - but as a whole they are not very durable.

  • "Mono" means monofilament

Systems based on monofilamet are among the most durable, if not the most durable, on the market. Due to their strength, they are able to maintain greater hair density and are ideal for those who want to wear hair systems with greater volume. The weave of the fabric is very tight, which makes the knots safer and the hair cannot get through to the other side. Additionally, this material gives the illusion of hair growing from the scalp. However, in the event of mechanical damage, the material begins to crumble, so it is necessary to finish its edges with polyurethane.
