Is there a website I can go to to order some ACRYLIC KNOT SEALER?? I have this TDI knot sealer (which is up for sale, only used once, PM me if interested) but I don't know if I should use it on this lace unit that I got from Xquisite. I went to Walmart and none of them have any in stock, no do they know what I am talking about. Cry

Go to ACMoore, ask for Patricia Nomick Clear Matte Acrylic Sealer.  They will not understand the term "Knot Sealer" This is normally used for Arts & Crafts

The newbie thread has info about Knot Sealer options.  Per BHM Member Valley Gyrl, Feb. 2, 2007:

"Knot sealer is used to minimize shedding and/or prevent hair loss. It is a form of preventive maintenance.

It usually comes is a spray bottle or aerosol spray can. It is sprayed onto the lace on the underside of the wig. It is not meant to come into contact with the hair, other than the knots. Knot sealer is a product that needs to be reapplied. Most reapply the knot sealer each time the wig is washed, some use it on an as needed basis. When your wig first arrives it is a good idea to use knot sealer to initially strengthen the knots.

Products that can be used to seal knots:

TDI Fast Track Tape Tab & Knot Sealer (see link below)
http://www.hairdirect.com/resources/products/tdiknotsealer-instructions.aspx

Patricia Nimocks Clear Acrylic Sealer


Minwax Polyurethane spray


3M77 Adhesive

**There are many brands of "clear acrylic sealer" in addition to those listed above that can be used to seal knots**

Where to purchase knot sealers:

With the exception of TDi sealer, most of the above products can be purchased at craft stores such as Michaels or JoAnns. Home improvement stores such as Home Depot or Lowes. And of course, Walmart in the craft section.

Additional information on knot sealers including how-to instructions:"

Using knot sealer on a new wig is the worst thing you can do. ALL knot sealers contain high levels of alcohol or acetone. It dries the knots and the hair too, cause you can't not get any on the hair. The hair becomes dry-rotted and this is why so many wigs shed and tangle, cause the hairs snap like straw and twist around each other from being so deperately dry. I've never used knot sealer on any of my wigs and don't have problems with shedding.

There really isn't much difference between the two. You can buy them both at Walmart.
