Because I have a widow's peak, I have to keep some of my hair line out. I'm more worried about that line you can see on the part and the sides (line of demarcation I think?). What can I do about that? 

Also, I tried bleaching the knots maybe 4 or 5 times. won't work. so bleaching them won't really do much Confused. I've tried using makeup too

Any suggestions for a good edge control other than the argon oil one and the olive oil than doesn't look like glue or leave white residue and actually lasts long? My edges is a crazy kinda curly so it's hard to hold down to look natural with the wig since the texture is not as exactly what I wanted. I will not relax my edges either. :/ 

Thanks Smile

I have a low hairline so I leave mine out too.  I leave just a tiny, tiny bit out because I don't want to worry about having my hair blend with the wig.  I can see the difference in your hair and the wig and if you don't want to bother with getting your hair to match the texture then I would suggest you pull the wig forward so you don't have as much of your own hair causing such a contrast.  Have you tried faux bleaching?  I do that and it works just fine for me and I'll put some powder foundation in the part along with a silicone scar sheet and no grids, no knots.  How are you securing your wig?  I use Tootsies Mom's method and got 2 b gel at the hairline to hold the wig down and there is no demarcation.  I'm still tackling edge control myself.  I just switched from eco styler gel to organic root stimulator olive oil edge control and a week or so ago switched to gorilla snot gel.  I will say the gorilla snot lasts the longest for me but it does still have buildup.

I have the longest widows peak in the history of widows peaks lol. Most of the time I shave it but you can wear your unit at the hairline just leave a sliver out at the front right where the widows peak is. Use a little concealer in your part or the silicon sheets and a little makeup and you should be fine.

I use Got2B glue too and the freeze spray. There was a Youtube tut on it. I tried it and it didn't work!!! But that was with my last (and rather crappy) wig so maybe it will work on this one.  I'll try again tonight. I use bobby pins cause it didn't work (lol it was WINDY today too I had to hold my wig down). So you use Got2B Gel at the hairline, how exactly does that get rid of the demarcation? 

Faux Bleaching? What exactly is that? I may try to get the elastic band for the tootsie mom method it's just it looks so confusing to me. I mean, yeah I know you sew it on the sides to get the front to stay secure but what about the back? I've never seen anyone put a wig with an elastic band on so if I did, it'd be less confusing. I'm just worried about wasting my money and messing it up.:/

try a search for the silicone sheets, they're silicone scar sheets I belive sexibeach first introduced it.  I got mine at CVS for about $20.  They're not for the line of demarcation.  They are for the part.  They make the grids disappear.  Do a search on faux bleaching too and you'll get lots of info but most people use sally hansen leg spray inside their cap which hides the knots.  I actually use a thin layer of paint in my skin tone.  Using the got 2 b helps because although using elastic gets the wig on your head tight, I need it to be absolutely flush with my skin and not moving...so I leave my hairline out, and put a line of got 2 b right behind the hairline where I am adhering the wig and use that to make sure the wig is totally flat and against my scalp so there is no clear line of demarcation.

Agree 100% with everything Kalesha said. With the tootsie method I sew in 2 bands usually. 1 - ear to ear and 1- around the nape. The band at the nape makes the unit seriously stick to your head and you can even put it up in a ponytail if you want.

Here I'm attaching a pic I just snapped on my phone with the method I described before.  My tiny leaveout needs to be flat ironed so don't mind that. Just wanted to give you an idea of what it looks like.
