How to lighten hair with lemon

How to lighten hair with lemon

We’ve already talked about how to lighten your hair with oxygenated water and chamomile tea. Even if it is not as effective as lemon methods, it can be preferred because it is an effective and completely natural method that can be tried by those who want to lighten their hair 1-2 tons without changing too much in hair color.

Before passing the recipe, people with dry hair should be warned about lemon. Because of the acid in the lemon, it should not be preferred by people with very dry hair as it will make their hair even drier.

Be careful when lightening your hair with lemon:

• Be careful not to apply it to your face as you will dry the mixture in the sunshine. Because lemon will make your skin more sensitive towards the sun.
• To test the efficacy of the mixture on your hair, we recommend you first try it at the ends of your hair.
• You can also use coconut oil instead of almond oil.
• Make sure that the materials are thoroughly mixed to ensure maximum effectiveness.
