Hi, I'm Ashley Blanton. And today, we're going to learn how to highlight virgin hair. Highlighting virgin hair is awesome because it's basically a clean slate. It hasn't been permed, it hasn't been colored, it hasn't been bleached. It's very easy to do and I'm going to show you how to do it. So that you can maintain the integrity and the health of the hair, so that it's shiny and beautiful. So, let's get started. I like to use an oil based bleach, then I use a 10 or 20 developer. It's better to go lo and start slowly. So, you do equal parts, one part, the oil bleach and then, one part of the developer. Make sure to read instructions, sometimes different companies have different formulas. So, make sure to read, but in general one to one is good. The key to bleach is coating the hair thoroughly, make sure every hair is wet with bleach. When bleach dries out, it stops working as properly. Notice, I'm flipping over to make sure everything is coated, go right up to the edge of that weft. And you're just going to brush it on. Now at this point, you're going to leave it to develop. What you want to do, as time progresses, you just take a little piece of paper towel because you wan to check where the color's at. If it's the color that you like, all you do is shampoo and condition it. And you just want two shades, it will look like this. You can go a little bit lighter of course, and you can tone it to whatever color you'd like.
