how to make wig knots look natural

There are two ways to make wig knots look natural,one is bleach knots.

Light or dark skin, when it comes to bleaching knots on your lace wigs if you want the best results!

Bleaching the knots camouflage the black dots in the lace to make it look like it’s coming out of your scalp.

  1. then is plucking the part absolutely necessary or does bleaching the knots make up for it ?

       Plucking helps mimic the density of your real hair. They serve 2 different purposes.

      2. Is it better to pluck first then bleach or the other way around ?

       Bleach first then pluck, bleaching it first makes it a lot easier to pluck.

      3.When you wash the hair the bleach doesn’t run off into the rest of the hair and messing up the color there?

        The bleach needs to sit on the hair for a longer time to change the hair color.

         Water stops the bleach from working.

another way is seal the knots on your single knot lace front wigs.

If you can not bleach the knots like it’s a must for you,

then you can seal the knots on your lace front wig.

Basically sealing the knots prevents the hair from shedding and or balding.

As far as sealing my knots,i just go online and purchase lace knot sealer ( Walker tape top loc-knot sealer).

it’s usually in a black spray bottle.

I definitely recommend it for anybody that’s bleaching their knots.

how to seal the knots on a lace wig

It’s a very creative method on single knot lace front wigs.

you can use the got2b glue and mixed the powder to make paste.

It’s the same consistency as the knot concealer

but this method is wet and doesn’t dry as fast as the perfect line knot concealer.

why add the got2b glue? Wouldn’t using just the foundation work OK? What’s the purpose of the glue?

Not only does the thickness of the gel cover the grids (holes in lace) making it look like scalp,

it helps the color you choose stick well and not rub off easily.

It turned out nice although concealer will save u a step.

why don’t wig manufacturers just do this on creation?

how to prevent lace wig from falling off

Let’s talk about ways to prevent your hand-tied areas from shedding.

1. Using konts sealer 
knots sealer is going to help basically glue the knot on there and just protect it.

2.Don’t ever scratch your wig with your nails,you hands anything like that so don’t rub your knotted areas,
you shouldn’t do that to your wig period because you’re just going to loosen that knot,
you’re causing friction cause it to untie and it will cause shedding.

3. Always use a wide tooth comb or make sure your brush has the cushions on it nothing rough.

4.Don’t use anything with high alcohol content so if you’re hairspray person i would try to find alcohol free one.
5. Before washing remove your glue ,i rub on that to get the residue off ,
so i’ve got my microfiber towel and i have it very saturated i press the glued areas or the residue areas to get them really wet,
you can see how it deposited some water and i just keep tapping until i get it off barely rubbing down,
and it might take a minute depending on how much you have on there but that’s all you do.

6.Always air dry don’t blow dry, if you don’t have to and if you do need to blow dry you need to use a low heat setting or no heat setting,because that heat is not good for your knots.

7. Don’t sleep in your wig especially your hand tied ones unless you have to,
if you have it bonded on make sure you’re wrapping your wig in a silk warp or satin. should stay away from any oils conditioners conditioning masks or anything like that near the knots,never don’t even chance it,
because what’s gonna happen is if you get any of that conditioner oil or anything like that on the knots,
it’s gonna make it all slippery and it’s gonna untie and you’re gonna have shedding.
