An educated consumer is a smart consumer. Knowing some facts about ventilation of your hair unit, might help you achieve the BEST looking hair system.

How is the hair attached to your unit?

The most popular types of ventilation we have to offer are; knottinginjection and looping.

Knotting is most commonly used in lace base systems but can be used with skin bases as well.

Injection and looping are often confused with one another. Both types are available in skin bases ONLY, provide a great look from above and appear as if the hair is truly growing from the scalp.


Our Injection & looping ventilation Systems:

Injection ventilation

Injection method is most common in Remy Hair systems. It requires a thicker base so the hair can be sealed between a layer of polyurethane and silicone. The best part of this system is, there is no hair return. That means all the follicles go in the same direction so tangling is a very rare issue.

Looping ventilation

The Looping method; on the other hand means the hair is sewn through the base almost in a V or U pattern. There is a hair return with looping and it isn’t as strong as injection. The skin layer, however, can be much thinner. If the skin is thinner, the better that front hairline will look.

Knotting ventilation

The Knotting method is the most common in lace base systems but can be used with skin bases as well. The hair is tied around the monofilament material in very tiny knots. These knots are usually available in a few different sizes: double knotssingle knots and half knots. The durability vs. appearance values for each is probably obvious. What you really need to consider with knotting is the way you like to style your own hair.ventilation2The Double knotting

Double knotting is ideal if you prefer a very thick density, with lots of volume and height. The bigger knot size makes it difficult to lay the hair flat down so your hair style should be fuller.

ventilation3The Single knotting

The Single knots are the easiest to lay flat. So if you like the slicked back look or style your hair to lay flat on your head, the single knotting is ideal.
ventilation4The Half knotting

Half knotting (also called split knots) are the smallest and most undetectable knots. They do however, provide some lift. Half knots are even smaller than the single knots and can also be used in a slick back style.

ventilation5Bleached knots

The big news in knots these days is something called bleached knots.  These knots are put through a bleaching process after being tied to the base. This takes out most of the dark color and leaves a virtually invisible knot that really appears to be growing right from your scalp!  Almost  Invisible to the naked eye.

Do not be fooled! Like Demand the single strand!



Unless you are an expert on the art of hair replacement construction, most likely you will not notice or know this.  The majority of hair factories and hair replacement studios will use the following method to knot the hair to the base; the multi-strand construction, this is done to save money and time. This means they tie 4-10 hairs into each knot to cut down on manufacturing time. It also produces a much larger knot size.

We kind of method is considered by us as cheating, the honest way of doing business.  We use single-strand construction on our bases which means we only tie 1-2 hairs into each knot. So, the next time you are looking for a hair unit, do yourself a favor, and do not be fooled. No matter where you purchase your hair system, be aware of this deceptive practice. Make sure that your hair system is constructed with single-strand knot.

Special Note: There are times, when our client’s request a very thick hair density level. And this should not be an issue, However, when this happens we must tell our customer of the knotting method used, multi-strand construction, just to fit enough hairs onto the base.
