I believe you all have heard about “bleach knots” when it comes to Closure, frontal, and lace Wigs. But what’s does that means?
If you order your hair extentions online and you want to make a wig. You may need an closure to cover the top of the scalp. However, there is a black knot when each strand is secured, that’ makes your wig looks not that normal. But bleaching it or lightening it will reduces their visibility, So in order to make your wig looks more natural as if it’s growning from your scalp, you need to bleached the knots on the closure.
Bleaching knots could be very difficult if you don’t have any instruction, so today let we would like to do a simple tutorial to show you how to do it.
To bleaching the knots. Here are the things you need to prepare:
- Developer (correct volume)
- Aluminum Foil
- Mixing Brush
- Mixing Bowl
- Your Closure/Frontal/Lace Wig
Turn either your closure inside out and pin it down to a foam head. And if your closure has baby hairs, pin them down with clips to make sure they are out of the way.
Mix equal parts professional developer and bleach powder in a mixing bowl. Be sure to stir thoroughly until you achieve the desired consistency, or until there are no lumps in the bowl.
With your mixing brush, dab the bleach onto the lace gently. If you put too much pressure onto the lace, the bleach mixture will leak through and bleach the hair. Make sure you apply enough bleach to the lace to ensure you are bleaching all of the knots. Once you’re done applying the bleach, cover the lace closure in the aluminum foil.
Make sure you keep the bleach on until the knots on the closure aren’t noticeable anymore. Wait until the knots turn a honey blonde color then rinse the bleach out. This is very important because you want to wait until your closure becomes blonde, or you will have a brassy lace closure.
Rinse the closure upside down quickly to avoid getting mixture onto the hair. After you rinse your closure out, wash it with a neutralizing shampoo to stop the chemical processing. Leave shampoo on closure for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse out. Afterwards condition your closure to keep it from getting dried out.
- Do not oversaturate your closure with bleach, as this could accidentally bleach the hair as well.
- Make sure you pick the correct developer volume – we recommend working with 20 to 30 volume.
- The bleach mixture needs to be really thick, not loose.
- Make sure all the baby hairs are brushed or pinned out of the way before you begin bleaching your closure.
- Make sure you apply enough bleach to cover all the knots on the lace.
- Leave the bleach on until your knots turn a honey blonde color then rinse the bleach out.
- Wash lace closure with a neutralizing shampoo to stop the processing of the chemicals from the bleach.
And that’s all of it, slay your closure in another way. Hope this tutorial would work perfect for you!
