I am not a friend of hair dye because it smells horrible and I am not sure how healthy it is.Few weeks back I was thinking about red highlights,but then I decided not to do it,because once you dye you have to worry about roots and re-dying.
My hair color is dirty blond and in summer it turns into a honey blond because I spray it with lemon juice when I go to the beach.But the effect wasn't thaaaat visible.
I searched the internet and found a cool way to lighten the hair with hydrogen peroxide and lemon.
Before you get started,cut off a small lock of hair and tape it onto a cardboard.So you can see the effect before you actually might ruin your hair color.
This method works only for blondes.Brown,red or black hair might turn orange.
And if you are not careful,you might damage your hair quite badly.Be safe and try it on a lock of cut hair first ,because I can not be held responsible,if your hair turns out to be orange.
3 tablespoons hydrogen peroxide 6%
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
hair mask and conditioner for after
Mix the ingredients and apply to your hair.The recipe can be doubled up if you need.
Leave in for 3-4 hours.
Rinse your hair well,use shampoo,a mask and conditioner to minimize the damage done to your hair.
If you want a more drastic result,repeat again after 3 days.
That's what I did and as you can see the change is quite drastic .
But again,I am not responsible if your hair turns out badly.
