Density is defined as the degree in which something is compact, in the case of hair it would translate into the relative amount of strands a person has on his or her head. Not everyone is born with the same hair density. If your hair is in its natural state and you are able to see the scalp easily, then you may have low hair density.
Having low-density hair is not the end of the world. Firstly, understand that low-density hair is not necessarily a bad thing. For starters, your hair will dry faster, and you will be able to style your hair more quickly than a person with high-density hair. If you are looking to increase the density of your hair, there are a few things you can do.
