The brightness of your blonde hair can decrease over the years. It can become dull, lifeless and damaged because of hair treatments or overexposure to the sun. There are some things that you can do in order to restore the brightness of your blonde hair. The best thing is, you do not have to go to any parlor and have expensive treatments done to you. You can do this procedure right at your own home!
Here are the steps on how you can brighten your blonde hair naturally:
1. Ingredients and materials. The ingredients that you will need for this are chamomile flowers, water and a lemon. You will need a small cooking pot, a strainer and a jar. If you do not have chamomile flowers, you can purchase them from any health store. Chamomile has been used to treat certain conditions, such as upset stomach and insomnia. It has also been used to give back the bright color in blonde hair. You can purchase dried or fresh chamomile flowers.
2. Preparation. Measure two cups of water and place it inside the cooking pot. Allow the water to boil. When it boils, turn off the heat. While waiting for the water to boil, you can already prepare your chamomile flowers. Put the flowers inside your container. Squeeze the lemon and put the juice inside the container with the chamomile flowers. The lemon has some elements that allow it to lighten the color of the blonde hair naturally.
Once the water is ready, you can pour the water inside the container with the chamomile and the lemon juice. Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon. Afterwards, let the solution settle for about ten minutes.
3. Strain the chamomile. After ten minutes, you can get your strainer and strain the contents of the container. Throw away the chamomile flowers and the lemon seeds. Allow the solution cool completely before you use it on your hair.
4. Using the chamomile solution. Now you can use your chamomile solution that will brighten your blonde hair. Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner. After bathing, get the chamomile solution and spread it on your locks with a massaging motion using your fingers. Work it through your entire head so that each strand of the hair has the chamomile solution. Allow the solution to settle on your hair and don’t rinse it out of your hair. Use this chamomile solution every week so that you can keep the brightness of your blonde hair.
These are the simple steps on how you can brighten your blonde hair using natural ingredients. If your blonde hair is dyed, it is advisable not to include lemon in the mixture. Putting lemon juice on dyed hair can ruin the color of the hair and this can result to an unwanted hair color.
Taking care of the hair is important. It is better to use natural ingredients in treating your hair rather than going to the salon and undergoing different hair treatments. These hair treatments may contain harmful chemicals that can further damage your hair or make your scalp burn or itch.
