Bleaching Knots On Lace Closure: Why & How?

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, bleached knots are a must to make your lace closure looks better. We’re sure that you will find these tips useful in this article.

What Is Bleaching Knots?

As we had discussed that the lace closure is a way to protect your hair from the top. It blends your own natural hair and finishes off your style with a piece that will match perfectly with the weave itself. It has a lace that all the hair strands are attached to the lace. When hair is tied to a lace base, there is a dark knot where each strand is secured. To help make the lace closure look more natural and reduces the visibility of these knots, we have the technique “bleaching the knots”. Bleaching also means lightening the knots, therefore, the hair seems like growing from your real scalp. In short, bleaching the knots on your lace closure means that you are removing pigment from the knots that keep each individual hair secured to the lace. By bleaching the knots you give your lace a more seamless and natural look that resembles a real scalp.


Why Should You Bleach The Knots On Lace Closure?

Bleaching knots on lace closures can be an effective way to improve the appearance of the hairline. It helps to get rid of pigment from your knots and hold the curls close to your lace. When you bleach them, you provide a softer and more natural look to your lace, close to the skin that covers your head. Then everybody think that it is your real scalp and they won’t recognize you are using lace closure.


How to Bleach The Knots On Lace Closure Step By Step

1. Things To Prepare

Bleaching knots can be quite difficult if you don’t have proper instructions, so we’ve put together a simple tutorial to show you how.

The Things You Will Need:

- Bleach

- Developer (at the correct volume)

- Aluminum foil

- Mixing bowl

- Mixing brush to apply bleach

Your closure/frontal/lace wig

- Blow dryer (optional)

- T pins (optional)

- Plastic cap (optional)

2. Start Bleaching The Knots

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: Gently dab the bleach onto the lace using the mixing brush. 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: 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, otherwise 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 hair 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.

3. Some Tips To Keep In Mind

Here are some tips to make the result better.

- 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.

- 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How long should I bleach my knots?

We do suggest that you use 20 or 30 volume developers. We don't recommend that you use a 40-volume developer, especially if you plan to bleach the knots for the first time because it will process faster. Most people use 30 volume developer; if you use 20 volume, it could take longer; if you use 40 volume it could process quicker.

2. Does bleaching knots cause shedding?

The darker the hair, the harder it is to completely bleach it. In fact, we do not recommend bleaching dark hair knots into gold, we recommend that you lighten the knots one or two steps. Bleaching hair from dark to very light will inevitably lead to rapid, excessive hair loss. In high-density systems, each knot has multiple hairs and it is almost impossible to bleach. If you make the right process, it won’t cause shedding.
