i found two new products...i've found some steri strips which is what i used when i had my full tummy tuck, yes i have a flat tummy LOL but they have improved them since then.. they are now called Steri-Strip S surgical skin closure.. i thought it thru brought some and put it in the part of my chinese virgin remy.. i will post pictures tomorrow to show you, its very realistic.. the down fall is they have skin tone, but it won't match everybody's skin tone unfortunately.. maybe they will make darker colors but they have clear, or you might be able to utilize them by blotting some bare minerals makeup on top the skin tone colors to make it match your skin tone..
 
i added a little Mr. C's on the sticky side of the steri strip so that it will stick to the lace, and it looks like scalp, its extremely thin and has a little fuzzy side on the back so it won't stick to your hair once you place it in the cap.. and it stayed in place and then i put it back on the wig head.. i only placed it close to the edge and left the lace remaining where i knew i was on to adhere the lace to my natural skin so it will blend.. here's some information on the steri strips and what they are used for.. also i found some dry powder shampoo that sprays powder that can not only assist in dulling the shine on the virgin units, but also clean it at the same time and not harm the hair..
 
3M announces the addition of the Steri-Strip S surgical skin closure, a primary wound closure device, to its family of skin and wound care products. The Steri-Strip S surgical skin closure is a non-invasive, adhesive-based wound closure device designed to treat low-tension lacerations and surgical incisions painlessly and without the use of needles. Faster and easier to apply than sutures, the Steri-Strip S surgical skin closure is designed to provide a time-saving option for surgeons and other medical specialists.
 
This innovative technology creates a new skin closure option with multiple benefits, including minimizing scarring, which is important to many patients who undergo various surgical procedures each year," said Craig DiLorenzo, business director of 3M Skin Health. "We are pleased to introduce the Steri-Strip S surgical skin closure as part of our ongoing dedication to providing dependable, easy-to-use, skin-friendly solutions to the health care community."
The Steri-Strip S surgical skin closure is simple for clinicians to apply quickly and is available in assorted sizes to accommodate various wounds. In addition to a primary wound closure, it also can be used with suture or staple closures, or as reinforcement for wounds after early suture or staple removal. The device is constructed of soft polyurethane pads and interlaced polyester filaments to provide strong, secure skin closure on most any length of wound. The Steri-Strip S surgical skin closure can be worn for up to seven to 10 days, during which patients can take brief showers without any additional covering.
The Steri-Strip S surgical skin closure, formerly distributed as ClozeX wound closures, was added to the 3M line of skin closure products in April 2006. A variety of surgeons and physicians in different medical specialties have already experienced the dependable outcomes associated with the Steri-Strip S surgical skin closure after surgery. These health care professionals include physicians specializing in plastic and reconstructive, cardiothoracic, vascular, OB-GYN, general, orthopedic, dermatologic, and emergency surgeries.

oh yea forgot to say if your knots are bleached, the grid completely disappears, you don't see it anymore...Wink and i had a little tear a small hole in the cap once i put the steri strip on it sealed it up made it lay flat and no sewing needed so it repaired it too..
 
UPDATE: here are the pictures, i must say this works, the skin tone color is a little bit loud, but i found using the bare minerals blotting in the part did tone it down.. i did use Mr. C's to apply the strip to make sure it sticks to the lace, the strip is a blunt cut on the end, so i clipped it with pinking shears to have a zig zag end.. at the end of the zig zag and where the lace was left out, i used the bare minerals to make it blend together so you can't see where it starts are ends period.. for my dark skins sista's i'm going to keep thinking this thru, i do think that the darker powder makeup will work but you'll probably need to add this as soon as you apply the strip to the unit, while its still sticky.. b/c its applies sticky side up, in order for the powder to stay stuck.. altho i still want to think it thru to perfect it for them.. altho if your willing to do your own experimenting i would suggest that you buy one pack of skin tone and one of clear and get to work...however this is working the grids are gone.. so i'm pretty satisfied for the first try, but you know me i'll keep thinking of ways to make sure it never fails for all of us..

i think you can make them match if you have a makeup powder to your skin complexion blot the part and it will stick and you could change the color, plus buy the skin tone and you'll have a jump start on making it match.. other than buying the clear..

Thanks Sexi. I am going to try the strips.

I have always used Batiste dry shampoo  (I spray a bit on my dogs too)for times when I need to freshen & can not do a full removal & application --you can get it at Sally's:
