Today was my first day applying. I took not too long, I'd say no longer than 15-20 minutes the 1st time as I only did the front. I read Puppyluv's Fotki with step by step directions, read through Hairtage's pictorial step by step and also viewed videos from Vicksexy on youtube.

Only did the front as a test run and plan to remove it tomorrow to seal the knots and apply fray block. Once I do that, I will do the full perimeter. Puppyluv's fotki is westindianqueen.fotki.com. She has a lot of helpful info there.

Yes, the knots are bleached. I didn't find it difficult to do as I must have rehearsed it over and over a zillion times in my mind while I waited for my unit to come! LOLLOLLOL

I got frustrated the first day I ever tried to apply my lf and gave up and ended up using a bunch of bobby pins. The second time I tried to apply it I got frustrated again because the tape didn't want to cooperate, it was really sticky and was sticking everywhere but where I wanted it to stick, and I gave up once again. This time I threw the lf on my desk and left it there for a few weeks. The third time I tried to apply I had a little more patience with the tape and the LF and was finally able to apply it. Now, it only takes me 5 minutes, 10 minutes top to apply my LF.

Many times over the course of 6 weeks.  I tried for 3 days straight and still didn't get the hang of it.  I had to take a break and try at a later date.  I got it now but it takes me awhile.
