Something We Have to Know about Bleached Knots and Unbleached Knots

Lace hair units have great popularity among users due to thin, comfortable and breathable base.  They are made by tying individual strands of hair onto lace mesh base creating knots at lace base. Hair knotting secure the hair strands on the lace base.But these knots appear stark against lace base,which will affect users’ experiences badly.Single knot and double knot are two types of knotting we mainly do for lace hair products.





Single knot is the knotting type tying one hair strand on one knot. The size of single knot looks smaller in size. It’s easier to bleach and present more natural looking. In markets, we seldom find wigs with full single knots. If you do have such a demand, it surely will cost lot of money to pay. Because this technique will cost so much time and labor out of your imagination. Usually we will find single knots only for front hair line of lace wigs.





Double knots with bigger size look noticeable and heavy. There are two or more hair strands tying on one knot to secure hair strands on lace. So we will find lace wigs with double knots usually present a thicker hair density illusion.





Many buyers request about bleaching knots to achieve natural looking. Some ones prefer unbleached knots. Because unbleached knots last longer and reduce hair shedding. We have to say choosing bleached knots or unbleached knots seems a tricky decision especially for beginners.


Let us have a general idea about bleached knots. Briefly speaking bleached knots are achieved by chemical

treatment, which opens cuticles and lightening pigments of hair knots. It is an effective way to improve the appearance. It helps to get rid of pigment from your knots. With bleached knots, hair looks like growing from your own scalp.

Advantage and Disadvantage of Bleached Knots

Bleached knots look much natural, but do harm to both human hair and lace base. Bleaching knots will shorten lifespan of lace products inevitably.

Advantage and Disadvantage of Unbleached Knots

Unbleached knots keep human hair and lace base durable, but present unnatural appearance.


From the sight of users, bleached knots are necessary for lace hair products. But we

have to note that bleached knots are not applicable widely. Here I listed out just for your


A.It’s impossible to bleaching knot for synthetic hair, just as we all know.


B.Regarding these hair colors, bleached knots are not recommended.

1)Black hair color#1, color#1A or color#1C



These hair colors had been dyed darker. Although you try to bleach. Knots will not get light as good as you expected. What’s worse, useless bleaching results in both human hair and lace base damage.

2)Lighter toned hair like light brown hair or blond hair


light brown and blond hair bleached knots


You will find hair knots of lighter toned hair appear undetectable well.There is no need to bleaching knots at all.

3)Colorful hair such as red hair, yellow hair, blue hair, purple hair, pink hair…

All of colorful hair went through heavily bleaching during color processing. Bleached knots for them means re-bleaching. That will do harm to human hair seriously and make hair easy to break or shed. It is wise to quit bleached knots about colorful hair.


C.Don’t bleach knots of full areas. It’s better to bleach knots only along front hairlines.

Just as I mentioned above, bleaching the knots will do harm to both human hair and lace base.The more areas bleached, the more risks of hair shedding and base damage you will take.While the most necessary area for bleaching is the front area along the hairline.The reasonable bleaching width of this area is around one inch to create natural hairline.Of course, if you request parting for your hair units(middle parting, left parting, right parting, or three partings), it’s same necessary to bleaching knots along partings.

We did receive some requirements about bleached knots in full areas. It is no problem to do as requests. But as a honest sales, I will offer my honest suggestion.


D.Don’t request about heavily bleaching.

Some users have strict request about bleached knots. They may ask for heavily bleached knots. In fact, the rate of hair shedding is very high if you insist heavily bleaching. And you have to take all risks when you make a decision. From our experiences and customers’ feedback, slightly bleaching will be a nice choice.


How to deal with those units unsuitable for bleaching? What can I do if I am unsatisfied with only front bleaching or slightly bleaching?

When you see my list above, you may find your loved products involved and feel depressed. Therefore it is the key to find an alternative to get rid of those noticeable dots to enhance appearance.

Lace Tinting–the alternative and additional solution

Lace tinting is a way to apply foundation onto lace base to hide hair knots.

You could follow steps below to tint your lace:

1.Place your wig on a wig stand or Mannequin head with wig cap out

2.Spray some holding spray on lace

3.Dry the lace base with a dryer. Note: Please turn to cool setting to ensure no harm to the lace base.

4.Apply the foundation on lace. You can do that with a help of makeup brush.

  1. Apply more foundation on parting line after you wear the wig.



Bleached knots are necessary when you choose lace hair products. But we must have an idea about those hair products unnecessary or unsuitable for hair knots bleaching, such as synthetic lace wigs, human hair lace products dyed in darker black, blond and colorful human hair.To ensure human hair and lace base lasting longer, slightly bleached knots only in front areas along the hairline will be highly recommended.

When you try to find an additional way to hide visible knots, lace tinting will be a good option. If you prefer unbleached knots, but you still want a realistic-looking scalp, lace tinting will be helpful as well. Just use foundation or concealer to coat the hair knots. Then you will do hide hair knots effectively by yourself. Surely this method is very useful and easy to handle even for beginners.
