Yes. Bleaching the knots is one of the great things you can do on your wig for a natural hair look. You will find there are dark knots on the lace closure. Bleaching these knots is helpful to reduce the visibility and makes the hair appear as if it is growing from the scalp.
By doing this, you do not have to worry about the knots on the scalp would ruin your final look since the bleach works fast and permanently alters your wig.
Step one: First, prepare your lace wig ready and make sure it is smooth and detangling for the next steps. If there is baby hair on the lace front, remember to clip it away.
Step two: spray the fresh water on the roots of the hair and it will protect the roots from the bleach.
Step three: Open up your bleach mixture into your mixing bowl and mix it into a thick consistency. The standard mixing ratio for bleach powder and developer is 1:1. Remember not to stop stirring until the mixture is smooth.
Step four: Time for bleach. Grab your gloves, brush, lace wig, and the mixture. Then apply the bleach to the lace with a brush and ensure all of the knots are covered during the process. Once you’re done with that, put the wig down and wait for 20-30 minutes.
Step five: rinse the bleach off and wash the lace and hair with shampoo to remove the leftover from the bleach.
Step six: put your wig on a mannequin and let your wig air dry or blow dry. After that, you will get a super clean and gorgeous lace front wig.
