10 Natural Remedies To Lighten Your Hair Colour

If you prefer to avoid harsh chemical lighteners, there are some great homemade recipes that you can try using natural ingredients that don’t damage your hair. Try these simple DIY remedies for beautiful lighter hair:

1. Lemon

Used by women for centuries to brighten their locks, lemon juice remains one of the most popular natural hair lighteners. It’s simple to use to create subtle, sun-kissed highlights. Mix lemon juice and water in a spray bottle, then spritz your hair and let it dry. Sitting in the sun will speed up the lightening process. One fresh lemon will give you about 2 tablespoons of juice. How many lemons you need will depend on how long your hair is and how much you want to highlight. Mix the juice to three parts water and shake well. Cover the strands you want to highlight, let them dry for about 20 – 30 minutes. Do this several times and then rinse. Sweet-smelling lemon works because of the acids it contains, which naturally lighten dark pigments in hair. Used often, lemon juice can dry your hair, so always mix it with water. If you have dry hair, you can add a little conditioner or hair oil to the mix to keep your hair soft and use a conditioner afterwards. Reapply the mix every half hour. After a week, you should see your hair start to lighten.

2. Chamomile tea

Like lemon, chamomile tea is an old-fashioned and effective method to bring out the blonde undertones in hair. Chamomile’s golden hue and the natural chemicals of the blooms have the ability to lighten pigments in the hair. Use one tea bag in a cup of hot water and steep for at least 10 minutes. Cool and saturate the areas you want to highlight, comb it through, then go into the sun until it dries. The sun will work with the chamomile to naturally brighten your hair. You may want to do this a few times to strengthen the effect before you rinse or shampoo off. If you have dry hair, add about 5 tablespoons of the chamomile tea to a conditioner, and then rinse off. This works slowly, so keep applying daily until you get the desired results.
