Human hair wigs are popular for those looking to enhance their appearance or change their hairstyle. However, one common issue with human hair wigs is the visibility of knots, which can make the wig look less natural. Bleaching knots is a technique that can help to minimize the visibility of knots and create a more realistic look. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of bleaching knots on your human hair wig.


Why bleach the knots on human hair wigs?

Bleaching the knots on human hair wigs is done to minimize the visibility of the knots and create a more natural-looking appearance. When a wig is made, individual strands of hair are hand-tied or ventilated into the wig cap. This process begins with knots where the hair is secured to the cap. These knots are often darker in color than the rest of the hair and can be noticeable, especially when the wig is worn or styled.

It is important to note that bleaching knots should be done with caution and proper technique to avoid damaging the hair or the wig cap. It is recommended to seek professional assistance or thoroughly research the process before attempting it, especially if you are not experienced in working with bleaching agents.

Now that we have all the necessary materials, let’s go through the step-by-step process of bleaching knots on your human hair wig:

Step 1: Prepare the Wig 

Start by preparing your wig for the bleaching process. Gently comb out any tangles or knots using a wide-toothed comb. If the wig is dirty, wash it with a mild shampoo and conditioner, and allow it to air dry completely before proceeding.

Step 2: Mix the Bleaching Mixture 

In a mixing bowl, combine the bleaching powder or cream with the developer. Follow the instructions provided with the bleaching product for the correct ratio of powder to the developer. Mix the two ingredients until you achieve a smooth consistency.

Step 3: Apply the Bleaching Mixture 

Put on gloves to protect your hands from the bleaching mixture. Take a small section of the wig and separate it from the rest using plastic or metal clips. Apply the bleaching mixture to the knots of the separated section using an applicator brush. Ensure that the knots are completely covered with the mixture, but avoid applying it to the rest of the hair.

Step 4: Wrap in Foil or Plastic Wrap 

Once you have applied the bleaching mixture to a section of knots, cover it with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. This will help to trap the heat and accelerate the bleaching process. Repeat this process for all sections of knots on the wig.

Step 5: Monitor the Bleaching Process 

Keep a close eye on the wig while the knots are being bleached. The bleaching time will vary depending on the desired level of lightening and the condition of the hair. Check the wig every 10 minutes to assess the progress of the bleaching process. Avoid leaving the bleaching mixture on for too long, as it can damage the hair.

Step 6: Rinse and Shampoo 

Once the knots have reached the desired level of lightening, remove the foil or plastic wrap and rinse the wig thoroughly with lukewarm water. Gently shampoo the wig, focusing on the bleached areas, and rinse again. Apply a conditioner to the wig to restore moisture and leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing.

Step 7: Air Dry and Style 

Gently squeeze out any excess water from the wig and pat it dry with a towel. Avoid rubbing or wringing the hair, as this can cause damage. Allow the wig to air dry completely before styling as desired. You can use heat styling tools, but make sure to apply a heat protectant spray to minimize damage.
