Cancel your next hair appointment at the salon and get your highlights the natural way this summer. Natural summer highlights are a fraction of the cost and cause less damage to your hair. Here are a few natural ingredients that deliver salon-perfect results:
Lemon juice is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Fill a spray bottle with lemon juice and spray your locks. For more defined, individual highlights, apply the lemon juice using a brush to the desired pieces. Be careful to avoid saturating your scalp- no one wants blisters!
Chamomile tea works similarly to the lemon juice method. To highlight your hair, brew a pot of tea and let it cool. Then, pour the tea into a spray bottle and spritz the areas you would like to lighten.
Olive oil is a natural hair conditioner, but it works as a hair lightener, too! Comb a generous amount of oil through your locks, and let the sun do the rest of the work.
Spend about an hour in the sun, and then wash out the mixture from your hair. Always remember to condition your hair after spending time in the sun to replenish its moisture. Natural ingredients work to gradually lighten your hair, so you may not see dramatic results after your first exposure. After a few applications, everyone will be asking what salon you got your highlights from.
