The question is: Are lemons really effective to lighten your hair? We found an article by Teen Vogue telling us that it turns out lemon juice is effective for hair lightening sometimes. According to Rachel Bodt, a senior colorist at Cutler/Redken salon, a natural way of lightening your hair only works if you have a natural fair hair and texture. "When you are working with darker hair, you are dealing with red and orange undertones, and these will be the first colors to be exposed," explains Rachel.
2. Coat your hair with honey
Restore your hair's natural moisture, while lightening it as well by leaving the honey and rinsing out after.
1. Mix honey, a little bit of water, apple cider, or vinegar.
2. Lather in hair and cover with a shower cap.
3. Leave in for two hours, or overnight for maximum results.
4. Rinse out when finished.
Thicken and lighten your hair using chamomille tea.
1. Brew a few cups of pure chamomile tea.
2. Pour it through your hair.
3. Let it soak for up to thirty minutes.
4. Rinse out and condition.
