Natural Highlighters for Your Hair

Natural Highlighters for Your Hair

New season – why not have a new hair color? It might sound very risky to the shy and cautious among you. Others do not want to damage their hair with hair dyes since it, after all, can dry it out or even cause split ends. Not to mention it may be pricey and time consuming to visit the salon once in a while!

The trend to use all kinds of products, found in the kitchen, in our cosmetic routines, has reached even hair coloring. Here are a few natural highlighters that will make your hair look brighter as if the summer sunshine has kissed it!

  • Chamomile Tea – It is gradual and better for brunettes. Brew a batch of chamomile tea, wait for it to cool down and rinse your hair with it after the shampoo and conditioner. It won’t damage your hair at all and will naturally let it become lighter!
  • Lemon Juice – The citric acid in lemon juice heats up in the sun, opens the hair cuticles and lifts out the pigment. This means that it might not work perfectly on a very cloudy day, but you might try using other sources of heat. Squeeze some lemon juice into a spray bottle, dilute it with 3 times more water and spray your hair. You may heat it up a little with a blow dryer to see if it works like that on your hair!
  • Beer – Beer is famous for being a good hair remedy because of the B vitamins and proteins that it contains. Be aware of the smell though! Take some light beer and rinse your hair with it.
  • Honey – First of all, honey is a really good deep conditioner. It contains enzyme peroxide which lightens hair when mixed with distilled water. Not to mention the great smell!

Of course, you cannot expect these options to make you an icy blonde, but they can definitely add some brightness to your hair! Besides, when used often, their effect might be much more impressive.
