You guys are all welcome. Just be sure to use the diluted mixture instead of the intructions on the back of the Rit box so that you don't darken your knots.

Love this  tip; I can't wait to try it!!

 
Does anyone think it would work if you used the non-toxic fabric sprays( used  for coloring things like silk flowers)?

Great tip. Just to add dark lace and light wig cap works great to. When you match your wig cap to the lace or if the wig cap is darker it looks bad.

I'm assuming that spray could work well to conceal knots throughout the unit just like the Sally Hansen spray does BUT remember that you can't put it at the edge of the lace because it will interfere with the hold of your tapes and adhesives and the edge of the lace needs to be darker to conceal the edge of your wig cap.

Sorry ladies Im late and have been very busy!
 
ORGW and Brown Cocoa Rit Rye Experiment 2007!
The first expertiment was to stop the ORGW from turning white after a few days by applying 2 drops of dye in ORGW bottle. And the second experiment was to change the front perimeter of lace to cocoa brown for better skin tone match. Which I dipped a Q-tip in bottle and spread on front perimeter of LF. About 4 or 5 inches back. I spread on lightly and did not soak at all. Just lightly and you will see. Do not have the Q-tip drippin. Im serious! LOL!\n\nMost importantly I am still wearing a Dark Brown stocking cap to protect my natural hair from everything (Very important)\n\nI have taken pics starting day one and to show you how natural it makes my lace look as well as hides the glue very well. I gotta say this ladies, having a big forehead pays off! I used to despise my big forehead, but it\'s cool wit me. LOL\n\nHere is the Rit Dye Color chart:http:\/\/www.ritdye.com\/Color+Chart.4.lasso";

Sorry ladies. I'm not sure why the pics get deleted from the threads after a while but I saved the post in Word before I put it up on this site so if you pm your e-mail address to me I can e-mail the post with the pics to you.
