You want to achieve a glamorous look with a long and thick hair, but your real hair is too thin and not that thick? There are two types of hair extensions: Single Drawn and Double Drawn but you do not know which one you should choose?
Do not worry about that because in this post we will share with you background knowledge about double drawn hair extensions and who should choose what types of hair extensions.
What are double drawn hair extensions?
First, what is hair extension?
Hair extension refers to a method of adding length and fullness to human hair. People who get bald, catch cancer-related diseases or suffer from severe hair loss like to use hair extension.
Putting on hair extension gives your hair a natural look. There are some popular types of hair extension such as clip-ins, tape and weave. All are available in various forms, shapes and sizes for you to choose from.
Then, what about double drawn?
Double drawn hair here refers to a bundle of hair usually in the similar length. To be more simplified, if you buy double drawn hair extensions, you will obtain a bunch of about 60-70% amount of hair in the same length.
A double drawn hair bundle never contains 100% hairs with the same length. A hair bundle like this will look too thick and unnatural to people.

There are two double drawn types. Double drawn type 1 offers about 60% of hair strands in the same length. And the other type delivers 10% more of similar hair length. Each type will give different level of hair bundles density.
Differences between Single Drawn vs Double Drawn hair
Firstly, single drawn hair is the standard thickness that many hair extensions are available in, and it is a popular choice for hair extension wearers. A standard bundle of single drawn hair will contain around 50% full-length hairs, and 50% hairs in various length.
Here are two main differences:
Double drawn hair extension will add the fullness and depth to your hair because it contains an amount of hair in the similar length. This type usually has the top and bottom of equal width.
Double drawn hair extension will add the fullness and depth to your hair.
On the contrary, single drawn hair has the top wider than the bottom. Moreover, it contains less hair volume than the double drawn.
While the single drawn hair creates a “V” shape hairstyle, the double drawn type makes a “U” shape. Therefore, the double drawn hair extensions certainly give you a fuller look through the single hair somehow might look scrawny.
Regarding price, single drawn hair seems to be cheaper than the double one. But overall, double drawn hair outweighs the single drawn hair extension because of the mentioned advantage.
So which one you find is better? Double drawn or single drawn hair? It’s all up to your choice. However, we find out that most people would consider double drawn as a luxury hair.

Next, let’s take a closer look to the benefits and drawbacks of double drawn in hair extension.
Benefits of double drawn hair
Double drawn hair is a great choice if your hair after is that of volume and glamour. As the hair extensions are very thick right to the top, a full-bodied look will easily be achieved.
As the extensions are so thick, it is likely that you will not need as many as you would need for a full head of single drawn hair extensions, and therefore you will not need to purchase quite as many strands at all.
Drawbacks of double drawn hair
As mentioned before, although you may be able to get away with buying fewer double drawn hair extensions compared to single drawn hair extensions, double drawn hair can be a little bit more expensive than single drawn. However, you will get more hair for your money.
As double drawn hair is thick from the root, this can make the hair strands quite heavy. If you have fine hair, this weight seems to be too high for their hair to support without causing damage, and therefore double drawn types would be not suited to everyone.
