Hey ladies,

Got my lisa raye wig from rpg show and was extra excited. So, I love everything but the part...which is the most important thing! My lace is *extra* visible and doesn't look real at all. I get that I need to bleach the knots, but this is more of an issue with the lace, which seems like its holes are too big. I just plopped it on my head. Am I missing a step? Do I need to be wearing something underneath so the lace blends? This wig cost me an arm and a leg...please help!

a pic is here:

Have you tried using the silicon pads to give it a more scalp appearance

Is that what people normally do? Is it abnormal to have my lace look like this? 

I emailed them and they responded immediately. But the vendor said that's how they all look. Show me the receipts!! Cause those YT gurus have their lace wigs lookin all kinds of natural and nothing like this mess.

use the silicone pads, you can get them from CVS the CVS brand for about $20.knots are normally that big, was this a stock unit? most stock units are light to medium density so thats pretty normal but once you find a natural scalp method that works for you, you should be good

Yep silicon pads will help. Looks like you have on a black wig cap....maybe its the color of the cap you have as well?

I didn't put on any type of cap. Put the bad boy straight on my head from the box. But I'll look into the pads. Thanks starlite and my fellow BHMers!!
