So I al absolutely loving this forum, u ladies are gems all through...
I have a few question that I PRAY someone can send me an answer to soon...
I notice most people complain of natural parting and I have gathered a wealth of info. from all the various ideas n here, but I have some serious problems with my a full lace unit:
1. I can never seem to get a natural looking hairline (both in the front and the back)...
2. I can't get my unit to stay longer than 2days. (I use 3-4layer of UH + Endura Bond) am not sure what am doing wrong, all I know is that it doesn't last for me and I don't even sweat much!

Can any of u ladies please help a sistah out because am getting really frustrated by this!!!
It's all in God's hands!!!

I'm sorry you're having problems with your apps but hang in there cuz it gets better once you find the adhesives that work for you. I should caution you that the UltraHold adhesive you are using is not recommended by most women who wear LFs. LOTS of women have had serious medical problems associated with long term use of Ultra Hold.
 
I sent you a pm with some links to info  that may help you with your apps.

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness".

The darker lace looks like an excellent idea for camouflaging knots. I'm not really sure what my best options are; I'm caucasian with very pale skin. My last 2 custom units (small & funny shaped head) I ordered were supposed to be transparent lace but they turned out to be light brown. I have bleached the knots, which worked to a degree but now I can see the grids more clearly. I've heard various opinions over whether Rit dye remover lightens the lace or not, but until I can find a vendor who actually sends me the transparent lace I want, I need to try & find a way of hiding the grids & the remainder of the knots.
 
My units are #4. Thee concealer/foundation/mineral powder doesdn't work for me, especially not for any remaining knots. I think my skin is just too light (& none of the makeup really matches it) & the knots are too dark.
 
Does ayone have any methods they can share? TIA!
