4 Natural (And Foolproof) Ways To Lighten Your Hair

April 12, 2016 by Rachel Gulmi
shefinds | beauty

You can stop going to the hair salon to lighten your hair because the sun has finally arrived! I love when my hair gets lighter in the sun. If you want to lighten your hair without the chemicals, all you need is a few things and the bright sun. Here are four ways to naturally lighten your hair.

Lemon juice. This is the most popular DIY hair lightener. Lemon juice will naturally lift the color from your hair when in the heat of the sun. Squeeze lemon juice into a spray bottle with a tiny bit of olive oil, which will keep your hair from drying out. Spray it all over your hair, sit back and enjoy the sun…with SPF, of course!

Honey. It will not only lighten your hair, but it will soften it. Win, win. Mix honey with either warm water or a little vinegar for easier application. Apply the mixture onto damp hair and cover with a shower cap. Let it sit for about an hour, then rinse with shampoo.

Chamomile. This is great for anyone with darker hair who wants a more golden hue. Boil a few cups of water and add chamomile tea bags. Obviously, the more bags you steep, the stronger the tea will be. Let it cool completely before adding it to a spray bottle. Much like the lemon juice method, spray your hair all over and sit in the sun to let it dry.

Cinnamon. Your hair will smell amazing after this! Mix cinnamon with a little water to create a paste. Coat damp hair with conditioner so the cinnamon-water paste has something to stick to. Apply the paste and twist your hair into a bun. Cover with a shower cap and leave it on overnight for the best results. Rinse in the morning to reveal lighter hair!
