What are bleached knots?

In order to make lace closure sew in, the hair is ventilated strand by strand with a tiny needle. The hair strand stays securely on the lace through a knot.  

Where do that knots come from? 

When hair is tied to a lace base, there is a dark knot where each strand is secured.

The visible knots look like tiny seeds. Some people don't mind the knots and many can't stand them.

Why bleach knots on lace closure sew in?   

  • Bleached knots help make the hair appear as if it is growing from the scalp. 
  • When hair is tied to the lace, there is a dark knot where the hair is secured. 
  • Bleaching or "lightening" the knots reduce the visibility of this knot. 
  • On off black (1B) and dark brown hair, the knots are lightened to a light brown shade. 
  • Very light brown and blonde shades usually do not need bleached knots. 
  • It is not possible to bleach knots on jet black (#1) hair and is very difficult to bleach knots on 1B hair. 
  • 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. 

So, how to bleach knots on lace closures?

Step 1 Turn either your frontal, closure or 360 frontal 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 lightning powder into your mixing bowl. Add less than an equal amount of the developer into the bowl and mix into a thick consistency.

Step 3The consistency should be similar to thick cottage cheese or frosting. You don't want your mixture to be runny because it will seep through the lace and saturate the hairs on the lace.

Step 4 Apply the mixture onto the lace closure with your applicator brush using swift, even strokes. The mixture should be evenly applied in a thick layer across the entire piece of lace.

Step 5 Let it sit for no more than 30 minutes or until there is a noticeable change in color at the base of the lace. When you notice the hairs at the hairline of your lace start to lighten, just slightly honey blonde, it's time to go on to the next step.

Step 6 Rinse the lightener off of the lace closure with the lace facing downwards first to avoid getting bleach onto the hair. Continue rinsing until all of the bleach is off.

Step 7 Thoroughly wash and condition your lace closure or frontal, making certain you have rinsed out all of the lighteners.

Step 8 Let your lace closure 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. 

If you're still itching to bleach your lace closure, take a look at the tutorial below, teaching you how to bleach your knots step by step.

Do I need them on my lace frontal wig? 

You may feel uncomfortable or embarrassed if your wig looks like fake hair. How to avoid this? Bleaching knots and customizing your lace frontal closure with baby hair is important to your beautiful hairstyle, it can make your wig look more natural.

Let’s talk about its pros and cons:

Pros: When the knots are bleached it gets rid of the seedy look and turns the hair to a lighter color so it appears that it's growing out of the scalp. 

Cons: Bleaching the knots can damage the hair, weaken the roots and lessen the durability of the lace. 


Some women, in order to make the lace closure more natural, ask for overall bleached knots. However, this is not suitable for the hair, as additional bleaching may take breakage to hair and shed knots easily. Under normal circumstances, the bleached knots only in front of the wig or lace closure are enough.
