Knotless Hair Wrap Tips
How to apply
If right-handed, you will wrap counterclockwise; and if left-handed wrap, you will wrap clockwise.
Hold the hair with your left hand, between the thumb and index finger. Place the wrap under the thumb facing you. Wrap it counterclockwise (right-handed) or clockwise (left-handed) to the back of the topknot. When at the back of the topknot, take middle finger and grab the wrap to help push it around to the front and connect to the wrap’s start. Once connected, you can let go of the wrap.
The second wrap around, you need to stretch the wrap. Stretching is what tightens the wrap. After the second loop around, you can test to check the wrap’s tightness. Tug it up. If it moves, pull and stretch the wrap tighter.
Before securing the wrap, check to see if it is tight. If it is not tight, unwrap it a little so you can pull, and stretch the wrap tighter. Now that you finished, and it is not moving, squeeze the wrap together hard to make a solid bond.
The wrap takes practice to perfect!
The more you wrap, the better and faster you will become.
1) If Knotless Hair Wrap does not stay in:
You must wrap it tight! It is very important to stretch the wrap because this is what bonds it together. At the end of the wrap, squeeze/pinch hard—in a few places—to seal the wrap. This causes it to stick together and prevents any loose ends.
Practice: Take a small piece of the wrap, and see how far it will stretch before it breaks. This will help you to understand how the wrap works. The wrap will slide on the hairs, so you must wrap Knotless tight—for a secure hold. This explains why Knotless will not damage the hair.
This picture shows a 1-inch piece of wrap. Underneath, you can see that the wrap stretches about 3-inches.
This picture demonstrates the wrap around my fingers. The first shows a loosely wrapped finger, while the other is tightly wrapped.
See the difference between the two finger, after I removed the wrap. Stretching tightly is key to creating that bond.
2) Make sure your hands remain free from powder, oil, moisturizer, conditioner, etc. These will prevent the wrap from sticking to itself.
3) Use our Topper.
What is a topper? The topper is a round rubber disk that holds the hairs that you will wrap and helps keep the hairs—that you will not—out of the way. You do not have to use the topper, but it does significantly help.
We offer 3 different sizes:
Small: 5/16" hole
Medium: 3/8" hole
Large: 11/16" hole
4) After you place the hair in the topper, brush hair out again. This will do 2 things: untwist the hair that you intend to wrap and show any hair that you don't want to wrap. This will help stop the knotting.
5) You can mist/dampen the hair to prevent flyaway hairs, before wrapping. Twisting the hair will, also, help.
6) I recommend using 1 to 1 ½ inches because too much wrap may cause trouble.
7) Keep the wrap on top of itself.
8) In the following picture, the wrap is too high on the hair. Note the little piece in the air. This allows hair to become trapped between the wrap, and the wrap will loosen and break away.
9) If you find hair between the wrap, gently pull it out. It will slide out and not cause any damage to the hair.
10) If the hair tangles, pull it apart. Hold the tangle in one hand, starting at the scalp. Use the other hand to pull it apart, while feeding the hair to the end—where it falls out from your fingers. Then brush out the hair.

In picture (B), the top knot lasted for 2 weeks.

Brush top knots daily, to prevent the hair from twisting around itself.
