Lemon juice is not only a great natural hair lightener, but also a remedy that can make hair healthier, stronger, thicker, silky and shiny.
- - Lemon - 4 pcs;
- - apple cider vinegar - 0.5 l;
- - rhubarb root - 30 g;
- - chamomile flowers - 20 g;
- - calendula flowers - 20 g;
- - acacia honey - 50 g;
- - 95% alcohol - 50 ml.
Prepare a lightening mixture. To do this, chop the rhubarb root thoroughly and place it in a small saucepan. Add apple cider vinegar to a saucepan, stir and cook over low heat. Bring this mixture to a boil and keep it on fire for about 10 minutes. Then add the juice of two lemons, calendula flowers and chamomile to the broth. Close the lid and continue simmering for about 5-7 minutes more. Then, without removing the lid, remove the pan from the heat and let the broth cool. After that, strain the broth, add acacia honey, alcohol and the remaining lemon juice to it. Stir the mixture well, pour into a tightly sealed bottle and store in the refrigerator. Typically, it will last for 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the length and thickness of your hair. Apply the resulting clarifier before every shampoo.
To rinse your hair, mix 1 tablespoon of the prepared bleach with 1 liter of warm water.
To highlight the strands, apply the bleach to the strands you want to lighten. Wrap your head in plastic wrap and hold for 30 minutes. You can mix it with a little regular hair conditioner to keep the mixture from flowing. Then rinse your hair with lukewarm water and dry without using a hair dryer.
There is also an easier way to lighten hair with lemon. To do this, apply 100% lemon juice to unwashed hair and go out into the open sun for 30-40 minutes. This is important because lemon juice can lighten hair by interacting with UV rays. The sun's rays make the hair lighter, but this process is quite long, and the acid contained in lemon juice speeds it up significantly. Then wash your hair with warm water and hair conditioner. Repeat this procedure until you achieve the desired result.
