How to lighten your hair naturally

Sometimes when we get back home after our summer holiday we notice that our hair is slightly lightened. Did you know that you can lighten your hair naturally?

Therefore, you will not need to visit a hair salon, but all you need is a little patience and a few ingredients that you have at home.

Here is one natural treatment that you can try out. Chamomile combined with lemon is certainly recommended to lighten up hair. Lemon and chamomile will not damage your hair, if you use them correctly. Citric acid is a weak organic acid so it is recommendable not to use it every day, because instead of lightened hair you will end up with dry hair.

You will achieve even better results, if you add honey to this mixture. You can use these three products together or you can combine them by two, in order to provide optimal care to your hair.

Honey has amazing effects on hair. The results strongly depend on the type of honey you will use. Floral, clover, sage honey…they all create different amounts of hydrogen peroxide, so that you can never be sure what kind of results you will get. Therefore, it would be best to make a hair test, before you use the honey. According to the experience of those who have tried this recipe, darker honey gave better results in lightening the hair. Use distilled water with honey: for 2 tablespoons honey add 12 tablespoons of distilled water. You can add a half teaspoon of coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil. Use this as a hair mask, and cover your head with a shower cap or towel, because it is important that the hair stays wet, otherwise the mask will not work. It is advisable to keep the mask on your hair for about 1 hour at room temperature, but can be kept longer. Hair should be washed off with a combination of white vinegar and water, which is applied after shampooing. A good ratio is ½ tablespoons vinegar to 1 cup of water. Vinegar restores natural pH and helps in cleansing the scalp.
