Many people like to lighten their hair to give it a sun-kissed appearance. While plenty of people head to their nearest salons for a desired treatment, those who would rather skip the chemical applications can rely on some natural products and still get the result they’re looking for.
• Lemon juice: Apply 1/2 cup of lemon juice to the hair and sit in the sun or use a hair dryer to heat it up to provide subtle lightening.
• Chamomile tea: Brewed chamomile tea can be added to a mild shampoo and used as a lightener. The chamomile solution also can be blended with plain yogurt and applied to the hair, left to sit for 30 minutes and shampooed out.
• Honey: By mixing a ratio of 1 tablespoon honey to 6 tablespoons distilled water, you can activate the natural hydrogen peroxide present in honey and lighten hair.
Keep in mind that these lightening methods are gradual and will not produce the same effects as chemical lighteners.
