French lace is one of the most sought-after hair systems base materials. As a result, it is also one of the more expensive base materials, and as a result, some hair replacement system suppliers tend to cheat customers by labeling low-quality or counterfeit materials as genuine ones that cost less.
However, there are some ways to tell the difference between real French lace and fake, which we will cover in this blog.
Why is French lace so popular?
Before we go on to tell the difference between real And fake French lace, let's explain why the French lace hair system is so popular. French lace is the default material for full lace or pre-lace hair systems. This material is known for its very natural appearance, and those who value a realistic and unobtrusive appearance often prefer to use lace systems.
French lace isn't the only kind of lace, though. There is also Swiss lace, which looks more natural overall compared to French lace. However, this comes at the expense of durability, as Swiss lace hair systems are generally more elaborate. In general, lace hair systems are more expensive than other types of hair systems because the natural-looking material is also very durable (compared to ultra-thin skin systems) and breathable.
Tell real French lace from fake
Now it's time to tell the difference between real French lace and fake French lace. Fake French lace looks coarser and is usually thicker than real French lace. As a result, it's also harder, which means it's less likely to form the shape of your head.
In addition, fake lace is generally thicker, making it harder to match the wearer's skin tone. Since real lace products are not as thick, the result is a more imperceptible and natural wig.
Distinguishing differences without actual sensory material can be tricky. But when the pair are compared in person, the differences are stark. Compared to the fake products, the real ones are much softer and feel higher quality. For hair wearers, it's best to always use a softer wig because it provides a more comfortable wearing experience and reduces irritation.
Hopefully, with the help of this blog, you'll be able to decipher what's real and what's fake French lace, no matter where you order your materials from.
