Bleach knots on lace closure
Step 1: Lay your closure flat in a plastic bag, and newspaper with the lace part facing up. This will help you proceed with the work easier without staining the bleach on the surface.
Step 2: Take 1-2 spoons of bleach powder with 1 cap of developer into the mixing bowl. Then, use the plastic brush to mix the developer and bleach powder together until the mixture is thick with no lumps.
Step 3: Use a plastic-bristle brush and dab the bleach mixture into the lace. After that, take a sheet of aluminum foil and fold over the lace part of your closure. You need to wait for about 10-20 minutes for the bleach to soak into the lace base.
Step 4: Rinse the bleach off all the bleach mixture in your lace closure. Make sure that you keep the rest hair of the closure out of the way so that it does not get stained with the bleach mixture.
Step 5: Apply neutralizing shampoo on the lace part and the hair under it and massage the shampoo over the section. If you don’t shampoo the section, the remaining bleach will continue to lighten the knots.
Step 6: Rinse out the shampoo until the lace base is completely clean.
Step 7: Take some conditioner and rub it into the lace and the rest of the hair. Wait for 5 minutes and rinse the closure until the water runs clear.
Step 8: Lay the closure into a dry towel to pat dry. Then, let it air dry completely.
So now, you’ve got a bleached knots closure.
