Many a time, it’s been said that variety is the spice of life. This is true, as you would definitely love to taste from different sources as a human. You could want to use different products on your body, which is not so advisable here. This is where that saying has a little limit, but it’s not limited in the aspect of style. For hairstyle for instance, is something that has to keep changing; you have to be versatile with it. There would be a day you would love to go from very dark hair to that lovely golden or brown hair. There would be a day you just want to suspend the Dookie braids for some time. Implicit in this is that you simply want to lighten your hair. Yes! We have seen so many persons doing this in salons, using artificial hair lightening agents, but do you know you can try achieving that desired golden hair at home with some natural hair lightening hacks? Here are the things needed for this;
1. CHAMOMILE TEA:
Sift through your bags of tea and find your favorite chamomile brew, if you have a super-dark hair and would like to give it more of a golden glow. Fill a large mug with boiling water, then steep a chamomile tea bag in it for 10 minutes. Once the tea has cooled, pour it over clean hair and let strands soak overnight. Rinse and feel free to repeat.
Use a piece of lemon to lightly “paint” highlights onto your head. Try focusing on small sections at the crown of your head and the pieces that frame your face. Alternatively, mix two tablespoons of lemon juice in a cup of warm water and apply to your strands as an all-over mask. Then, sit outside and let your hair dry in the sun, letting the heat activate the lemon.
This doubles as both a hair treatment and a cocktail. Mix one part vodka to two parts seltzer and pour it into a spray bottle, then spritz it on strands while relaxing in the sunshine. The clear blue tones of vodka will lift any brassiness you have in your strands, while the alcohol lifts the natural pigment in your locks.
4. BAKING SODA:
This can make an excellent, easy at-home lightener. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda with water and use it as a rinse once a month to gradually brighten your color. Baking soda is an alkaline ingredient, and this will lift the cuticle of your hair, the part that protects your hue.
