Hey ladies. Firstly, yes, I did try to do a search on this but search isnt working for me.
 
I'm located in the UK so..UK ladies please help. We dont have ll these developers that the US ladies use to bleack knots and we dont have the products for sealing knots either. So..what are you ladies using to bleach and seal your knots and where are you getting them from?

a lot of us use got2b glued blasting freeze spray to seal knots. Maybe try a really stiff hairspray. Make sure not to spray too much because it will seep through the cap.
 
My LF knots were bleached when I got her, so I'm not fooling around with that. I'm scared I would leave it on too long.

Yeah I heard about the hairspray. I might ust have to order a knot sealer from the US. The unit had bleached knots when i first bought them around 9 months ago..but i am starting to see a few knots looking like grids at the back. I read somewhere that If you bleach knots..you have to reseal knots?
 
I did find another alternative to bleaching the knots though.. Loreal Quick Blue power and Loreal #40 creme developer..available online from some UK stores..heard it takes really long though..like 50 minutes? to bleach the knots

I've checked Afro German's site but unfortunately she does not have any products for bleaching or sealing knots.

Aww thanks Amba Hug. That's the knot sealer sorted. I already have fray block and fortunately none of my units have frayed yet.
 
So..I'll get the loreal blue powder and 40 developer online.

Powdered bleach and developer is all you need to bleach the knots.. Check the instructions on the bleach to determine the maximum processing time.. I believe 40 Vol developer processes MUCH faster, and 40 minutes might be too long a processing time.. Once you know what your maximum processing time is, you simply watch the unit until the maximum processing time is reached..

BUT....

If your knots get to the desired color BEFORE the maximum processing time, you can rinse the unit and move on to the next steps after bleaching the knots..

DO NOT PANIC if the knots reach the underlying color of orange or red during the bleaching process.. This is the hair's underlying pigment, and means only that the bleach is working..

Just leave the bleach until you reach the desired color, but do not leave it on longer than the maximum processing time and you'll be fine.. This is a LOT simpler than it's often made to seem.. Good luck!Tongue
