This video is a tutorial on how to bleach, color, and steam process curly extensions. This process can be performed on any human hair, though your results may be different. I will be using this hair for a full wig. 

THE HAIR ~~~~~
I'm using 12 inch, curly, virgin, Brazilian hair. This hair can be purchased through me. Please send me a private message if you are in purchasing or for more information.

PROCESS ~~~~~
First I bleached the hair for about 1 hour then washed. The hair did not lighten enough, so I bleached again for another hour.
After I achieved my desired lightness, I added hair color to tone the weave. I left this on the extensions for 30 minutes. I then washed and conditioned.
Once the hair was my desired color, I allowed it to air dry for several hours.
Once the hair nearly dry, I begin applying my rollers. Rolling the hair with rollers then putting the rolled hair in boiling water is called Steam Processing. This is a technique most extension company use to curl their weaves. 
The smaller the rollers the tighter the curl pattern you will achieve.
I boil the hair using oil and conditioner for 3 hours.

TROUBLE!!!!!! ~~~~~~
After boiling, I discovered that my rollers bled onto my blonde causing red streaks throughout the hair. I scrubbed the hair, but was unsuccessful in removing all of the red. But the curl pattern was perfect. I will still use the hair as it wasn't completely messed up.
I plan on using the rollers again, but only on dark hair.

ITEMS USED ~~~~~
L'Oreal Quick Blue powder bleach
Clairol Pure White Developer 30Volume
Kiss Express Color -- Light Ash Brown
Isoplus Neutralizing Shampoo
Aphogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor
Moroccanoil intense hydrating mask
Trader Joe's Grape Seed Oil
Suave Conditioner
Processing Brush
Bowl
Pot
Rollers
Foil
Measuring cup

Rollers: purchased from http://sourcingmap.com.
Cost: $25 for 7 packs, but I only used 4 packs/bundle of hair 
Name:  Magenta Red Flannel Wrapped Flexible Perm Rods Curlers.

I wouldn't recommend using them in light colored hair as they do bleed as you saw in the vid. But I did my dark 1B hair and it turned out perfect.

Facts about My Hair ~~~

I've been completely natural since May 2012. 
Check out my Big Chop video: 

My last relaxer was March 2011
I transitioned for 1 year. I cut the first 6 inches of my relaxer off in September 2011 and the rest at my Big Chop.
I transitioned with sew-ins
My texture is mostly 4a/4b
My hair is BLEACHED. It's I choice that I've made for how I wanted to wear and style my natural hair. Yes I do still consider myself natural since I did not alter the texture of my hair. My bleaching does require greater attention to moisture/protein balance. I work hard to keep my bleached hair growing.
I have heat damage left in the front of my hair from constant straightening while wearing sew-ins 
I do not use heat, but am not oppose to it.
