Hi there, we are UWigs. Blenching knots will give a more natural look, but we have found that some people may be beginners or don't know how to deal with knots, so that over-blenching would happen frequently. Today, we focus primarily on how to not over bleach the knots onto the hair.
Step 1: protect hair
Make sure that we are protecting the hair before starting to blench knots. We recommend spraying some oil or some water on the hair before bleaching the knots. And what this does is if we get any spillover from the bleach, it will process just a tad bit, but it won't process as fast. This protects the hair whenever we do not use this on the hair before bleaching; the knots usually happen because we will get more bleach spilling over on the hair and get over bleach. So we would highly recommend using some oil or water to protect the hair before blenching.
Step 2: flip wig
This part is simple, and of course, it's self-explanatory. We need to make sure to flip that lace wig inside out because the inside part is where we're going to apply the bleach. Ensure that all hair is pushed away from the front of the lace; that way, we won't apply bleach onto the hair.
Step 3: choose quality blench
Now, most people like to go with the cheapest bleach they can find; however, we found that a cheap bleach will give a more brassy result, it's a little bit to control, and that will easier to get over blenching. So we would recommend choosing a high-quality blench instead of the cheapest one.
The measurements are kind of important when it comes to bleaching the knots. If the mixture is too Watery, we will get spillover onto the hair. Since we are bleaching knots and not the hair, we want the mixture to be pretty thick, and it's right when it doesn't drip and run. Make sure to use the same brand of blench and powder because it does matter. And also, make sure to use a mixing bowl and make sure you're not using any metal utensils.
Step 4: application
Before we start, we can add a little bit of sweet almond oil into the mixture; this is optional; it's just something that may help the quality of the bleach. Then we start bleaching the knots. Where to start is very important because wherever we begin, that's where the bleach is going to bleach the most. Usually, we would highly recommend starting at the back of the lace wigs; because usually, the knots in the back of the lace wigs are the hardest to bleach for some reason. The hairline usually goes a bit faster. When putting the bleach into the lace, make sure that not pressing too hard; when we first start, lightly coat that lace with that bleach without pressing; since we want to make sure we get every single knot.
If you still see some knots even after bleaching, don't go back and bleach the knots again immediately; wait for about 5 minutes, because once the bleach sits, it will foam up, and then the majority of the bleach will covering the knots. However, if we notice that the bleach did not go onto the knots, we can back with the applicator brush, lightly press and smooth that bleach till we see it come through the lace onto the knots. Do it in the hairline area very carefully to make sure there are no knots visible. So when the majority of the knots are covered with bleach, wait for about 20 minutes.
Step 5: rinse +tone
After blenching, we need to wash the lace wig with shampoo to get the brassiness out of the knots. Put the shampoo on the lace; make sure to rub it into the knots so that it also penetrates the front of the wig. It would be much better to let it sit for at least 10 minutes before you rinse it off, and once you do, it should have your knots looking excellent, so that's the end.
So that's all the tips that we should pay attention to; if you have any requirements for a cheap lace wig, contact us UWigs to get secret coupon codes for a discount.
