It’s time for a change, but your pockets may not be up to the task. A trip to the salon seems like a long lost dream, and you want to lighten our shade a bit. This time you want to try a method that’s all-natural. While searching for simple ways to get highlights or lighten the hair without chemicals look no further than the kitchen. You don’t have to dig deep in order to find a few pennies to contribute to a makeover.

Lemons For The Tart

Lemons are known to naturally lighten the hair. Mix 1/4 cup of lemon juice into your conditioner bottle. Apply it directly to the hair and do one of two things: sit in the sun for a few hours and allow it to bleach, or sit under a dryer for an hour to speed up the lightening process. Repeat weekly until you get the desired effect.


Honey is known to be sweet and sticky, but it also contains natural hydrogen peroxide. You need 1/2 cup of honey, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 1/2 cups of distilled water. Mix the honey and olive oil first, then slowly add the water until you have a well mixed solution. Pour into a spray bottle an spray onto freshly washed hair, comb through and rinse after 1 hour. Repeat as desired.

Boil 5 bags of chamomille tea in 3 cups of water for 10 minutes. Allow the tea to cool and depending on the degree of lightening you desire, apply to freshly washed and conditioned hair. For a gradual lightening process, add the tea to your shampoo and conditioner.

Rhubarb Juice

Rhubarb is as easy as the lemon. Boil about 5 stalks of rhubarb with 2 cups of water for 10 minutes. Allow it to cool and remove the stalks from the pot. Directly pour the rhubarb juice onto the hair. This won’t bleach you out, but it will lighten brunettes. No matter which method you choose remember to follow up with weekly conditioning and regular moisturzation.
