Giving a touch of honey to naturally light brown hair, making the blonde even more luminous and brilliant, or giving golden reflections to ash-colored hair: the desire to lighten hair unites many women, to bring a little sun, light and vitality around to your face.Generally, hair naturally lights up in summer, when it is subject to the action of chlorine in the swimming pool, salt water from the sea and above all to the sun’s rays that degrade melanin . The side effect of this natural “bleaching”, however, is a dry and dehydrated hair. However, there are some natural do-it-yourself treatments   to lighten hair without damaging it.These are lightening grandmother’s remedies, often  based on chamomile , or which use naturally lightening ingredients and foods , such as beer, neutral henne or cassia, turmeric , saffron , ginger ,  lemon  and honey .

Obviously these remedies to lighten the hair only work on already light hair which can give lighter or warmer reflections than the natural color.

Chamomile to lighten hair

Perhaps the best known and most popular method to lighten hair naturally is to rinse with chamomile tea. To prepare it, simply add a tablespoon of chamomile heads every 200 milliliters of boiling water , leave to infuse for thirty minutes and then use the infusion as a rinse after shampoo.

To give even more brightness to the hair, it is possible to add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to the infusion , an ingredient with an acid pH that closes the scales of the hair, making it softer and shinier.

After performing the lightening rinse for your hair, you can let it dry in the sun, for an even more evident effect. The treatment can be repeated one or more times a week to obtain more evident light reflections.
