Knotted, Injected Or V-Loop Attachment?

Hairpiece hair is either knotted or injected to the hairpiece base. V-loop is another method which is used in special kind of constructions. When you are buying a hairpiece, you should read the descriptions to learn about the kind of attachment method used.

As a buyer you are normally offered with two or more attachment options but you won’t be able to decide which one to choose unless you know what these terms mean actually. Method of attachment impacts ventilation and styling.

And so it’s important to know the differences. But in case of certain bases you won’t be offered with all the options. For example, if you intend to buy a hairpiece with a Bio skin base, you’d have to choose from knotted and V-loop options only.
‘Injected’ method is not available with the Bio skin pieces. Now, let’s take a look on the individual methods.

Knotted
This means each hair is attached or tied to the base with the help of a very tiny hook. It’s almost like sewing and a hairpiece maker knots every single strand of hair patiently one by one. This creates innumerable tiny pore spaces all over the base and so ventilation is high in knotted hairpieces.

Injected
Instead of knotting, hair is hand-inserted to the base from different angles. The best part is it looks more like natural hair since individual strand of natural hair tend to fall in different directions. Insertion is done with the help of a certain tool and it makes a uniform appearance all over the custom hair system.

V-loop
This is specially meant for very thin bases and this is why we do craft pieces with this method if the base is a Bio skin one. This one is the thinnest. V-loop hair is easy to style as you can comb in any direction. Ventilation in V-loop pieces is as good as it is in the knotted pieces.
