What is knots?
In order to make the wig as natural as it grows naturally, ventilation technology is generally used when making lace wigs, and the hair is tied to the lace. At this time, knots will be formed.

Single knot means that there is only one hair on a knot, which is smaller in size and usually appears on the front hairline of the wig. Double knot is a knot with two or more hairs, larger in size, usually appear about 2 inches behind the wig's hairline.
Why need to bleach knots?
So why do knots need to be bleached? Because the knot looks very unnatural. When the color of the wig is darker, the knot is more obvious, it looks like lace of small black dots. But if the wig is lighter in color, you don't need to bleach the knot because it won't look as noticeable. However, in addition to making the wig more natural, bleaching knots also have many disadvantages. Unbleached wigs are not easy to fall off, and the hair lasts longer, but the knots are more obvious. If you don’t mind not bleaching at all, bleached wigs, although they have been treated, will also cause damage to the hair. Reduce the lifespan of the wig. You can also leave the knots unbleached if you are afraid of damaging the wig. You can use concealer and liquid foundation to cover the obvious knots, so that the color of the knots is honey-colored, which is more in line with the color of your scalp and looks more natural.
