Alternatives to Bleached Knots

The goal of any lace wig wearer is to have a hairline that looks natural. Bleaching knots is a trendy method that is used to soften the tiny knots between the root of the hair and the lace. Yeah, that’s what gives lace wigs a more natural appearance. Bleaching, however, is known to weaken the hair where its tied onto the cap and over time excessive shedding can occur. 

Fortunately, bleaching knots isn't the only way to make the hairline and parting area look all-natural. There are a few more efficient ways to have a natural looking hairline without a bleaching agent which ultimately can cause damage to your wig in the long run. 

Let’s review some of the techniques in this post, Shall we?

1. Using Makeup

Beyond the conventional use of makeup on the face, applying cosmetics is one of the easiest and most suitable options to cover up the knots. 

This is how you do it: 

Concealer or Foundation:  Opt for a shade that complements your skin tone. Apply a sizeable amount with a makeup brush or sponge to the lace's underside and parting area. This reduces the visibility of the knots by blending the lace with your scalp color. 

Setting Powder: To minimize the shine that comes with these products and guarantee that the foundation or concealer stays in place, use a setting powder to add a finishing touch. 

2. Lace Tinting Sprays

 Lace tinting sprays are made solely to match your skin tone when wearing a lace wig. These sprays are a more durable solution and are easy to use (even for beginners). 

This is how to apply them: 

Pick the Right Shade: Make sure the tinting spray you choose matches with your skin tone.

Spray Evenly: Apply an even coating on the bottom of the lace while holding the spray at a distance. Avoid contact with the eyes.

Before putting on the wig, let the lace dry completely.

3. Tea or Coffee Soak

Some wig experts prefer using natural ingredients like tea and coffee. To get a slight lace color shift and natural hue at the base, here's how to do it: 

Pour some strong coffee or tea into a cup and let it cool. 

Allow the wig's lace/part to soak in the liquid for a few hours. 

Afterwards, give the lace a quick rinse in cold water, and let it air dry. 


Your dream of achieving a natural hairline without bleaching knots is entirely possible with these alternatives mentioned above. By exploring these options, you can maintain the quality of your wig for a long period.
