Question about bleaching knots

Question about bleaching knots
I just had a stock unit cut in and I'm really liking it. However, the knots look darker and more grid-like than usual. I've attached a pic.

I've never bleached before. Do you think it would make a difference? Any suggestion on what to get and how to use it would be appreciated too.

RE: Question about bleaching knots
Hi! What kind of base is that, and what density ?

Im just someone who are struggling with the decision to start wearing or not, so i dont have any information.

Im suprised that gridpattern is to the eye, and this is not in sunlight... , is this normal for hairpieces? :S

No offense Shreeve im not trying to be mean my life is completely ruined by my hairloss for the last 3 years. Im really stuck and dont know how to move on with my life. This is probably the best focused closeup photo i have seen so far. I want to believe in hair replacement to save my life but this is not convincing me.

Hi Shreeve .. I meant to reply to your thread sooner but I overlooked it ... wish I could get such clear /sharp photos..my camera is pretty rubbish! --- it just will not focus properly within a certain distance.. I have to move it away before it will give me the `green box` to indicate correct focus...soon as I go near, I get the red [incorrect] focus box..really annoying.
Now to your issue.... knot -visibility can be a perennial problem...sometimes there`s no issue at all, other times there is.... I note this is a stock system.... many guys order a custom-made and get blonde hair at the front and then colour it themselves.. I appreciate colouring may be something many newbies would be fearful of doing.... bleaching can weaken the hair [knots] and lead to premature shedding ... the visibility can be more obvious if hair is double-knotted and is a dark colour....also, bleaching may not work because fabric-dye is also used to colour hair when the need arises, so you could try a fabric-dye remover first [ on those knots] and see if that works.....I`ve always found my front knots were always properly bleached and invisible, even in my Topper-wearing days, when I wore custom-made systems ... close-up photos like that tend to amplify such issues...you`re [naturally] very ` conscious` of it [as we all would be] but most casual observers won`t be looking so closely at your hairline. You could try using some styling-product such as Brylcreem --just a little--- to help slick the hair down a little ..it could mask that visibility.... I`m surprised to see it ..usually knots,even on a stock system, are not so obvious.

I'm on my phone looking at this but when i zoom in looks as though they didn't use single stand single knots at the front. Using singles makes the knots half the size and much less visible.

Looks like single knots...

They have not been bleached. If they where onbleached double knots, they would be much more visible.

This is a stock unit. French lace, #2 color. I've never had this issue before from toplace. Shame, because it's a really great unit otherwise.
