Looking for the best natural hair lighteners? Look no more because we’ve got the scoop for you and the best and most worthy hair lighteners! Why spend money at the salon and/or damage your hair with harsh dyes when you can actually lighten your hair naturally, at home, for just pennies? Today we’ll show you the best natural hair lighteners that have been tried and tested and actually WORK!
Natural Hair Lighteners
#1. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice hair lightener has been around for as long as I can remember! It’s an oldie but goldie! Because lemon juice has natural bleaching properties, it’s no wonder it’s truly the best and most effective hair lightening option. Simply juice some fresh lemons in a spray bottle and dilute with some water. Spray directly onto hair and sit out in the sun for a few minutes. The natural bleaching properties of the lemon will lighten your hair in mere minutes!
#2. Chamomile Tea
Chamomile tea is usually a better lightening option for brunettes as it is much milder than lemon juice. Just brew a batch of chamomile tea, let is cool, and rinse your hair with it after you’ve shampooed and conditioned. You’ll notice a faint change, so you may have to repeat this step 2-3 times, but the results are well worth it!
Honey contains the enzyme peroxide which is naturally bleaching. Just mix honey with some water (to dilute it) and massage into hair. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse out. It may not work immediately, so you’ll have to do it a few times, BUT your hair will immediately feel super soft and smells amazing!
Beer also has lightening properties, just as long as you choose a light beer! Rinse your hair with beer and leave it on for 15-20 minutes and pour some in a spray bottle and spray away. The longer you leave it on, the lighter your hair will get so it’s completely up to you!
Keep in mind that these natural hair lighteners will work best on already light hair that needs a boost, while brunettes may need to be a little more persistent. Of course, if you’re looking to go from brunette to blonde you’re better off going to the salon!
