- Lemon – You will need a lemon. You can use two of them if the lemons are small. Lemons have been used as natural hair lightening lighten ingredients since ancient times. What people used to do was put some lemon juice in water and apply it on their hair. Then they’d go sit in the sun for some minutes. This subtly lightens hair and brings out highlights!
- Chamomile flowers – Chamomile flowers are also another ancient remedy for hair lightening. They’re also steeped in water and then poured on the head as a final hair rinse. Using chamomile makes blonde hair blonder and dark hair get some nice light colored highlights.
- Lemon essential oil – Boost the nice lemony scent of your hair spray by adding this essential oil! It is also got from lemon peels, which are known for their brightening and lightening properties so it might help with lightening hair as well!
