I was following the advice of some random youtube video that showed how to apply the bleach to the styrofoam head the then you lay your unit down on top of the wig head and Girl... you tell me why I thought it was a great idea to go patting that wig down into that crap I mixed up???  Talk about making my brown eyes Blue.. where I had hair I had deep blonde roots 1-2 inches into the wig all over and random. ask me what I knew about dyeing hair? the my own sister ratted me out to the Lace Wig Police and I had all kinda explaining to do, I can not even remember half the lies I told to get out of that one

i agree.  i have a rex CLY unit that came as a 1B and i bleached the knots without the rit dye remover.  all depends on the vendor.

I just used Rit Dye Remover on my closure and I forgot to pin the hair up like the newb I am lol! It lifted the color off the knots and off about 5 inches of hair! Luckily it now looks like a #4 going into a 1B! I love it! I'm just hoping I didn't fry it. I read somewhere on here probably the newb compilation that you can destroy your hair! The knots disapeared except a few! Is it still OK to bleach?

Hi OP, I'm sorry this happened to you.  I can relate, as this happened to me to a degree on my novice attempt to bleach the knots on a lace frontal.  Hug

dont use knot sealer... it WILL shrink your cap......
u a clear acrylic sealer from pep boys, crafts stores, Home depots in the paint section. I like Krylon acrylic
it shrunk my cap so much.... I couldn't wear the wig
so I cut the wig up.
I seal the knots w the acrylic let dry then Sally hansen then seal again. it never was out.....
I was bleaching knots & then doing all this...
wait until u feel comfortable or u know the hair can handle the bleach.....
sorry that happen...Embarrassed

Don't believe anyone who claims you don't need to use rit. Those Vets would never had told us how it removes clothing dye if it did not work. I also have a unit with transparent hair (where there still is hair), so I know how you feel. Well, I might if I had done this to my own unit...just saying.
 
u r so right! i should have used the rit dye first before bleaching because the parts of the hair that were bleached were transparent afterwawrds. my hair is shedding but manageable. i love this wig and hair texture so ima make it work lol
