How To Lighten Your Hair Without Dye

Whether you’re taking a break from chemicals and searching for non-toxic ways to lighten your hair so that the spirit of summer is with you all autumn and winter long, look no further than your own kitchen for a solution.

Ryan Zamo, creator and CEO of Z Skin Cosmetics, a 100 percent organic-based skincare, hair care, and mineral makeup line, has done extensive research on how to lighten your hair organically. “I created an organic alternative to Sun In. It’s an organic hair lightening product, which is also a leave-in conditioner and styling pomade that provides light hold so your hair looks naturally perfect without being able to tell you have product in it,” Zamo says. “The one thing I walked away with after doing weeks of research is this ‘If it can bleach your clothes, it’ll bleach your hair!'”

Additionally, Zamo mentions two extremely popular hair lightening methods that might already be on your radar: lemon juice and beer. Lemon is the most popular because “it’s what’s known as ‘an alpha-hydroxy acid’ which dissolves skin/hair cells.”

Here are even more household items that are worth trying if you’re looking to lighten your hair nautrally:

– Grapefruit, lime, orange, papaya, pineapple, kiwi or other fruits with citric acid.

– Milk, yogurt, buttermilk, and sour cream, thanks to the Lactic acid.

– Grapes, grape juice, wine, cream of tartar or other items with Tartic acid.

– Apples, vinegar, applesauce, apple cider, and apple cider vinegar due to the Malic acid.

– Honey, which Zamo says contains low level amounts of organic hydrogen-peroxide, which is a fast way to lighten hair.

– Cinnamon/clove, paprika, nutmeg, and chamomile are also known for their hair-lightening properties.
