What's the problem?

When I turn my wheel completely to the left and turn it back, my breaks soften to the point where it almost feels like I have no breaks. What's the cause of this?

Yes, check the Flex line that runs from front wheel's brake caliper to body.

Are you losing brake fluid from the master cylinder, I would check it, Flex line could be leaking fluid

Those flex lines may look good on the outside, but it's the inner rubber that you cannot see that can soften, and restrict brake fluid. If you cannot see any loss of brake fluid, change these soft lines, then do a complete bleed, starting at the furthest point away from the master cylinder (passenger side rear), working your way to the shortest point (drivers side front).
