Get light and bright locks this spring with these all natural ways to lighten hair!
In the mood to change up your hair color? Want to lighten your locks for that beach babe glow? Commercial hair dyes are often laden with chemicals that irritate the scalp and leave hair damaged. But don’t be discouraged, your kitchen has all the items necessary for a natural DIY hair lightening process. Cancel your appointment with the salon because all you need is a few ingredients and some sunshine 🙂
Natural Ways to Lighten Hair
#1, Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is the age-old, tried-and-true method for lightening hair. Simply combing fresh-squeezed lemon juice through your hair before hanging out in the sunshine can be very effective for achieving lighter locks.
Ever notice after a beach vacation that your hair is a little lighter? Sea salt combined with sun exposure is a hair lightening match made in heaven. Fill a spray bottle about ½ full with warm water and add a tablespoon or two of sea salt and let it dissolve. Take the spray bottle along with you to the patio, to the pool, wherever outdoors and give your hair a spritz while you relax in the sun for 20 minutes. Later rinse and wash as usual.
Chamomile tea can be used to lighten hair all over simply by brewing a cup, letting it chill, then transferring the tea to a spray bottle and spritzing it onto hair then lounge in the sun for 20-30 minutes.
Baking soda is also a natural hair lightener that can be mixed with a small amount of water to form a paste, then smeared on the sections of the hair that you want lightened. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes then rinse and wash as usual.
