Lighten Your Hair Naturally

Lighten Your Hair Naturally

Even though summer is slowly coming to an end (sad face) we're still loving the light summer hair. If you tend to want to highlight your hair even during this fall, there are great homemade recipes that you can try.  All of the below recipes include natural ingredients so that there's no damage to your hair. Fun, right?

Another thing that we love about homemade recipes  is that they are much less expensive than buying highlighters in the store. You can even use it more often without causing dry and brittle hair. 

Honey: On already wet hair, slather as much raw honey as needed to cover from root to tip. Work the honey in. Cover your hair and let it sit for a couple of hours and then rinse with cool water. Please note that the honey has to be raw. 

Chamomile: Make a very strong batch of chamomile tea and use it as a rinse on dry hair. Whatever rinses out, catch it and re-rinse a few times. Let your hair dry and then rinse well with water. 

Cinnamon: When mixed into a paste either with your favorite conditioner or with honey, cinnamon acts gorgeous on hair. Apply paste to damp hair, let it sit for a couple of hours, wash and dry. 

Lemons: Juice a couple of lemons, and mix it with 1/4 amount of water. Example: If you have 1 cup or lemon juice, mix it with a 1/4 cup of water. Put the mix into a spray bottle and spray on dry hair. Let your hair dry, rinse with water only and then condition. 

Please note that all of the above may take several tries to see lightening, especially depending on your current hair color. But, be patient!
