Naturally lighten your hair with this DIY chamomile hair lightener spray!
Do you know that you can lighten your hair naturally? Ingredients like chamomile tea, lemon juice and honey have long been used as natural hair lighteners. What you’re going to do is make chamomile tea using dried chamomile flowers. You can also use tea bags instead (about 5) to make the tea.
We’re going to be using raw honey as well. Don’t worry it won’t make the spray sticky since we’re adding just one tsp. The final ingredient is lemon juice. Use freshly squeezed lemon juice for best results. Instead of lemon juice, you can add 7-10 drops of lemon essential oil. This works as a substitute if you don’t have time to squeeze fresh lemon juice. Lemon essential oil also makes the spray last longer.
Okay now let’s get onto the DIY chamomile hair lightener spray recipe:
