If you want to make a change in your appearance, if you’re getting sick and tired of your hair color, but you don’t want to damage it or spend a ton of money in hair salons there is a completely natural way to do it, without spending a dime. Highlighting your hair in a few shades can really refresh your look and all you need for this can be found in your kitchen.
Honey is perfect for highlighting your hair because it contains a small amount of hydrogen peroxide and gives moisture to your hair at the same time. However, honey is quite sticky so it would be best if you dissolve it in some water or vinegar. It will make it easier for application, and you can wash it off easier as well.
Make a mixture of honey and water or vinegar and apply it on your hair where you want to lighten it up, or you can apply it on your entire length if you want to lighten it entirely. Put a shower cap on and leave it in through the night. When you get up rinse it and wash your hair as you normally do.
Aside from being an excellent drink, chamomile is a great ally when it comes to female beauty and care. Make a strong chamomile tea and leave it to cool off. Apply it on your entire hair or on some hair strands, however you prefer. Leave your hair to dry out naturally in the sun or at room temperature. Chamomile will definitely lighten up your hair, but it will nourish it as well.
This fruit is definitely the most popular way to highlight your hair. The lemon abounds in citrus acid which can significantly lighten it. Mix ¼ cup of warm water with 1 cup of lemon juice and put the mix in a spray pump bottle. Have in mind that lemon juice dries out the hair, so if your hair is already dry you can add some conditioner or hair oil in the mix. Spray your entire hair or just the strand you want highlighted and leave it on for a while. For best results sit outside in the sun.
This aromatic spice is ideal if you want to lighten a darker hair color because it will give it a warm, lighter shade without an orange glow. Wash your hair with shampoo and put some extra conditioner and rinse. While your hair is still wet apply a mixture of powdered cinnamon and warm water. Rub the mixture in nicely and cover your hair with a shower cap.
Leave the mixture in as long as you like, the longer the better. Cinnamon is one of the safest ways to highlight the hair so you can repeat the procedure as many times as you like.
