Bleaching is something trendy, but hair damaging. You can have the same results with natural products, at your own home. So why don’t try it out?
For a girl, hair can represent her personality and her attitude. We all need a change sometimes, but that change can be expensive and damaging, and I bet you don’t want that. Hair bleach is very popular in our days, but it can harm your hair very much. Homemade lightening is less expensive and you can use it more than once because there are no chemicals to cause dry and brittle hair.
Here Are a Few Different Methods That You Can Try to Naturally Lighten Your Hair at Home
Baking Soda Is Great for Cleaning Your Hair of Chemicals
Baking soda is actually great for stripping your hair of chemical buildup and can be used as a lightening agent as well. This takes a while longer than other methods but if you use baking soda on your hair about once each week, you can strip harmful chemicals out and lighten your hair naturally over time. You have to mix some baking soda with water, until you have a paste. Add the mixture to your have and leave it for 30 minutes, then rinse it with warm water.
Olive Oil and Honey
Add ½ cup of honey into a bowl and then ½ cup of olive oil. If you are lightening the ends of your hair just lay out a towel and add the mixture to the ends of your hair. Leave it in your hair for about 30 minutes. The longer you leave it in, the lighter it will be. Wash out the mixture with warm water, and then add some conditioner.
Honey and Lemon Is Also a Hair Treatment
For this you will need 100% pure honey. Use the juice of one lemon, and add one tablespoon of pure honey. Put the mixture in the fridge for 15 minutes to chill. After that, add the mixture to your hair, but avoid the scalp, because the lemon will dry it out. Put your hair in a shower cap, and after 30 minutes you can rinse the mixture. You can do this as much as you want, because it’s also a hair treatment.
Honey and Cinnamon
Both contain small amounts of peroxide, the same ingredient used in many commercial hair dyes. For some better results, apply it until you are happy with what it looks like! For this you will need ½ cup of honey and ½ cup of cinnamon. Put the mixture in your hair and leave it there for about 30 minutes, then rinse it with warm water.
