Many materials are used to create bases within the non-surgical hair replacement industry. The most popular have been polymer bases such as Superhairpieces’ P41L women’s topper and M101 skin hair systems. Now polymers are also integrated into designs with other materials like lace Polymers, which are derived from silicone and/or polyurethane, can often perplex newcomers in the industry due to their similar appearance at first glance.

Silicone offers various benefits, largely attributed to the protective coating it forms around the hair cuticles, which are the outermost layer of the hair fiber. It works to reduce friction, prevent tangles and frizz, and enhance the shine, smoothness, and manageability of your locks. Frizz, Silicone, Enhancement

Silicone offers various benefits, largely attributed to the protective coating it forms around the hair cuticles, which are the outermost layer of the hair fiber. It works to reduce friction, prevent tangles and frizz, and enhance the shine, smoothness, and manageability of your locks.
In summary, Silicone is great in creating a protective coating on the hair shaft, sealing in already there moisture and providing benefits such as smoothness and heat protection. However, the benefits are only good as long as there isn’t a ton of product buildup. The best type of silicone in hair care products that avoids product buildup are ones that are water solubles, but the downside is that it doesn’t last as long as the other two types of silicone.

Strands of hair are used and knotted twice. As a result, these knots are more durable and provide volume for those who prefer a higher hair density. The downside is this comes at the cost of a natural-looking appearance. Knots, High Hair, Hair Strand, Types Of Knots

Strands of hair are split into two with the gap providing movement for the hair. They are more durable than single knots and not very detectable at the root since the knots are small. They are ideal for those who prefer messy hairstyles. This method is usually used on poly skin bases or poly skin perimeters.

This is a type of ventilation technique, mainly used on poly skin systems, where the hair is knotted or looped into the base in a V-shape. This provides an extremely natural-looking appearance, but comes at the cost of durability which is why most hairpieces that use v-loop knotting are mainly disposable. Chinese Hairstyle, About Hair

Strands of hair are used and knotted in the same direction. While this does not provide volume or durability, it’s good for those who prefer flat back hairstyles. Roots are not visible so the hair looks more natural.

This is a knotting technique where the air is precisely angled and injected into the system that makes it look like it's coming out of the base. You will not see any knots and the end result is an appearance making it seem as if hair is growing from your scalp depending on the base you're using. Hair Again, Hair Density

Strands of hair are split into two just like the single reverse split knots. The difference is the knots are knotted twice which provides more durability, but also makes them less undetectable. This knotting method is usually used for lace bases but only when single strands are being knotted. It’s not suggested to use this type of knotting for the front of the hair system unless it is knotted with a single strand either. Infographic Illustration
