Something About Bleaching And Unbleaching Knots

Bleaching knots is a technique to make the wig appear more natural by creating the illusion that it grows directly from the scalp. When making a lace wig, the hair needs to be tied to a piece of lace. This technique is known as ventilating, which creates knots. The knots secure the hair strands on the lace wig. There are mainly two types of lace wig knots: single knot and double knot. Single knot means there is only one hair strand on each knot, and double knot means there are two or more hair strands on each knot.

single knots

This type of knot is smaller in size and is normally found at the front hairline of lace wigs. Single knots are easier to bleach and give a more natural hairline appearance. If you find some wigs that use single knots to make the whole wig, that is usually more expensive. Such wigs are lighter in density.

double knots

This type of knot and is very visible as it is bigger in size. Double knots are harder to bleach and are mostly found 2 inches after the wig hairline. They usually use more strands and are more secure. Double knots are typically used to increase hair density.

Difference between bleached knots and unbleached knots

When your wig is a darker color, these knots appear like small dots on the lace base that are visible in appearance. Bleached knots and unbleached knots affect how natural your lace wig looks.

Unbleached knots

Hair knots that have not been bleached are unbleached knots. When the hair is tied to a lace base and each strand is fixed, there appears a dark knot. In fact, it's hard to notice these knots from a distance. But if you look closely, these knots are obvious, and it can present an unnatural look. Some people don't mind these knots, but still many can't ignore them.

Unbleached knots last longer and reduce hair shedding, but they’re more visible and can make wigs look unnatural.

Bleached Knots

To reduce the visibility of the knots and make the lace wig look more realistic, some people choose to bleach the knots. The bleaching is a process that uses chemical products to make the knots a few shades lighter. This process involves a change in hair color. It chemically alters the hair as it opens the hair cuticle and goes to the cortex to remove the color. This process will change the hair properties permanently.

Bleached knots look very natural as it makes the hair look like it is growing from your scalp. However, you need tools, skills, and extra care to perform the bleaching without damaging the wig. Bleaching will weaken the knots and make the hair fall out faster. Besides, only human hair with the cuticle intact can be bleached and the knots on jet black hair cannot be bleached at all.

Both bleached and unbleached knots have their pros and cons, and these should help you decide whether to bleach knots or not. If you want a natural look, choose bleached knots. If you want your lace wig to last longer and if you don't mind visible knots, then unbleached knots are the best option. But if you have a light-colored wig, there is no need to bleach the knots because they’re already light in color and invisible.
