Summer is right around the corner and thus starts the trend towards lighter sun kissed hair. However, bleaching is not an option because the chemicals from the bleach can damage your hair. The bleach strips the keratin from your hair, which can leave your hair brittle, dry, and lifeless over time. Definitely not a look any of us are going for!
Use lemon juice to naturally lighten your hair! Lemon juice naturally lightens your hair because it is contains a natural bleaching agent–but not one as harsh as the bleaches that are on the market today. For example, lemon juice is safe enough to use on your skin.
2-4 tbsp lemon juice (1/2-1 lemon)
Mix the lemon juice and the water together. Rub it into your hair and leave it in for a few hours before rinsing it out. How long the natural lightening method takes depends on your hair.
In general, if you have hair that grabs color easily and bleaches easily, then you are likely going to see results sooner.
You can accelerate this process by going outside in the sun. The sunlight will accelerate the lemon juice’s hair lightening process.
Enjoy your naturally highlighted, healthier hair! Avoid the chemicals…your hair and body will thank you!
