How high magnification is high enough?

Should I be using a 5x magnification lamp? Or do I need higher magnification than that?

5X magnification should be enough, you just have to find that “sweet spot” on a mag lamp where the area of hair you are treating looks clear, not blurry and distorted. Can you get a higher magnification lamp than 5X. I don’t use this kind of magnification, so I am clueless on lamps that go higher.

Thanks. I’ve seen some lamps on ebay that go anywhere from 5 to 20X, but they get pricey. I’ll stick with a 5X lamp. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
