 Bleach or Dye Virgin Hair  :

Step 1
Lightly spray hair with clean water. This helps open up the cuticle to speed up the process.
Step 2
Add 2 scoops of bleach powder and 20V or 30V crème developer together (50:50 ratio) and mix them together completely. You want the mixture to be like pancake batter. Not too thick and not too thin.

Step 3
Make sure to unrivaled the hair and starch out the weft to ensure even distribution. Lay the hair flat on a large sheet of foil to avoid a mess to clean up later. Using an application brush, apply the mix on to your virgin hair extensions. Start from the ends and work your way up to the roots. Remember whenever you start will be the lightest. Make sure that the mix is well and evenly saturated. Flip hair over and repeat with applying the mixture.
Step 4
Once the hair is completely saturated on both sides, work the mixture in with your hands.
Step 5
Wrap the applied area well with foil and time it for 15-20 minutes.
*Make sure to use the hairdressing foil.
*Be sure to check the hair every 5 minutes to see how much the hair is lifting, as the time of processing may vary depending on the products and hair you use.
Step 6
First Shampoo the hair extensions with a shimmering lights shampoo thoroughly in lukewarm or cool water making sure all the chemical residue is washed out. Then repeat with the neutralizing shampoo.
*Do not use a hydrating shampoo or conditioner during this wash because these products will close the hair cuticles and make it difficult for the hair to absorb the dye color.
Step 7
Apply the hair color dying products to the bleached area. Let the hair dye color process for 30-45 minutes.
Step 8
Apply a deep conditioning treatment for at least 15-30 minutes and rinse well.
*During this step while the conditioner is still on,  I like to put the hair in a shower cap or plastic bag and place in my hooded hair dryer for about 10-15 minutes. This helps to seal in moisture and ensure my hair is super soft and silky.
*Once rinse out thoroughly, if the hair is wavy or curly slightly scrunch the hair to keep the curl pattern. And then, lay the hair on the towel to air dry completely. Do not hang the wet hair to dry because that can stretch out the curl pattern.
