How to Successfully Bleach Your Knots!
You have got for yourself a completely new lace closure and you are feeling so excited to wear it. But when you put it on, you can see that it appears a lot of dark knots where each strand of hair is secured on your lace. So that’s what make it looks not natural. Do you want to customize it? There is a good solution for this problem: bleaching the knots on your lace closure. Unless you don’t mind those black dots on your forehead, bleaching knots on lace closure are a must to make your lace closure looks better. We’re sure that you will find these tips useful in this article.
The Things You Will Need:
- Aluminum Foil
- Mixing bowl
- Mixing brush to apply bleach
- Blow dryer (optional)
- T pins (optional)
- Mannequin head (optional)
- Plastic Cap (optional)
Step 1: Turn either your lace closure or lace wig inside out and pin it down to a foam head. If your closure has baby hairs, pin them down with clips to make sure they are out of the way.
Step 2: Scoop 1-2 scoops of lightening powder into your mixing bowl. Mix equal parts bleach powder and professional developer in a mixing bowl.
Be sure to stir thoroughly until you achieve the desired consistency, or until there are no lumps in the bowl.
Step 3: With your mixing brush, gently, and we do mean gently, dab the bleach onto the lace. If you put too much pressure onto the lace with the brush, 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.
Step 4: Check to keep the bleach on until the closure knots are no longer noticeable. Repeat until the knots turn a honey blonde color and clean the bleach. You have to wait until your closure becomes blonde, or you will have a brassy lace closure.
Step 5: 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. Let your weave hair silk closures air dry. If you’re in a rush, you can blow dry, but it’s best to let your hair air dry after a chemical process to avoid damage.
The Key Tips When Bleaching Knots
- * Do not oversaturate the closure with too much bleach, because it may also accidentally bleach the hair.
- * Make sure to choose the right developer volume-we recommend using volumes of 20 to 30.
- * The bleach mixture must be truly dense and not loose.
- * Before you start bleaching the closure, make sure that all baby hair is brushed or secured.
- * Make sure to use enough bleach to cover all knots.
- * Leave bleach on until it turns honey golden, then rinse it off.
- * Wash the lace closure with a neutral shampoo to stop the chemicals in the bleach.
