Lemon and honey both natural ingredients have amazing benefits and used for several purposes as weight loss, for skin glow, wrinkles for hair problems and to treat other health issues. Here we are going to surprise you by telling that you can lighten or dye your hair by using these ingredients.
This post is ideal for those who are crazier about dying the hair and fed up by using the hair dyes because harsh chemicals in hair dyes can dry out and damage your hair.
If you want to dye your hair with honey then mix it with water because honey is too sticky and it becomes difficult to apply it as it is onto your hair. Take four parts of honey and one part of water or if you want to get better results, mix honey with apple cider vinegar too because it works as a conditioner and makes your hair shiny and healthy.
Combine these things thoroughly and let the mixture sit for atleast 30-45 minutes. After the time, drape a towel over your shoulders to protect your clothes from drips and then start pouring the mixture over your head gradually while massaging.
Cover all of your hair with the mixture and after doing this, twist and bind your hair with clips and take a shower cap, if not available use plastic bag to cover your hair and let the honey sit in your hair for atleast 2 hours to achieve your desired look.
If you want to get much lighter shade then apply the mixture till overnight, rinse your hair with lukewarm water and shampoo and leave your hair air dry. You will be pleased to see your honey color hair that you get easily at home with no expenses.
You can also make your honey conditioner at home, take your favorite or regular hair conditioner half cup in a bowl and combine it with ¼ cup of raw honey, stir the things in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
After washing your hair with shampoo use this honey conditioner as you use your regular conditioner and store it in an air tight jar and always keep it refrigerator after the use.
Lemon acts as natural bleaching agent and due to its bleaching properties it will be very beneficial for lightening your hair color. As like honey you can also use lemon juice with water and other natural ingredients, take 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, one cup of orange juice and mix it with one-quarter cup of warm water.
Pour the solution in a spray bottle and spray it over all of your hair until your hair is wet with the solution and sit outside direct in sunlight for half an hour and reapply the solution after thirty minutes while continue sitting in the sunlight. After an hour wash your hair and deep-condition with your conditioner.
Lightening with lemon juice takes time so you need to be patience to get desired results and must be stick with the process for 3-4 weeks continuously.
