I find this easy to use if the hair is already installed. http://www.chicksaddlery.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/TC2495.JPG

  If the base density is too thick there isn't too much you can do ,because  the hair is placed very close together on the base when it was ventilated.  If you use the razor to texturize the hair, you will still have a thick base in the crown area while the hair is thinned. The only other option is to take some tweezers and pick out some hair one by one from the base,however this requires great skill and patience. Now if the base is ok but the hair is too thick then use  a razor to thin it out.

This.
 
I was going to suggest getting some tweezers and pluck random strands but i didnt because i thought it may may compromise the closure base.  But after thinking about it, it's an excellent idea.

^^ Great answer. I'm going to try the tweezers. Hoping I don't damage the base!

I think people prefer 80% density.

I've used the tweezer method on silk closures and the ladies upstairs use the tweezer method on lace wigs. It's tedious but you get a good result if you take your time.

No, No, NO! Thinning shears! not the razor, you'll give yourself a beard & there will be little hairs sticking up, will  you will get frustrated with & then will have to pluck out. hold the hair up, start at the base place the shears on the hair like a scissor at the base &slowly & gently pull up. Thins out hair like greatness.

I actually tweezed a closure I thought was too dense yesterday. The closure was too dense for a natural side parting so I only had to tweeze a straight line for the parting. I didnt think it was too bad actually, but I do think the snugging and pulling on the closure could destroy it. After a while I got really impatient and I took a pair of scissors and cut the hair off from the base/root.. and that was much faster. HTH..
