Do you desire light highlights or to lighten your hair colour globally but always refrain due to its hair damaging effects? Then you are at the right place! Whether it’s because of the time of year, or just because it’s time for a change, it can be fun to try lightening your hair colour but bleaching cannot always be considered since it has bad effects on hair like split ends, frizziness, hair breakage etc. Cinnamon is a truly magic ingredient for bleaching hair. Below is how you could use cinnamon to lighten hair naturally along with its benefits:
- No side effects
- Does not make hair rough or prone to split ends which is the case with chemical treatments; in fact cinnamon makes hair soft and shiny.
- Since it’s a natural ingredient, the change won’t be drastic so if you are attempting lightening hair for the first time, this should be good.

WAYS TO USE CINNAMON TO LIGHTEN HAIR NATURALLY:
Hair mask: Mix a tsp of cinnamon with enough water to make a paste. Now add in some hair conditioner so that it sticks t hair properly and also softens hair. Apply the mixture to entire hair or few strands if you desire highlighted hair. Wrap a shower cap around your strands, then leave the mixture on for at least six hours. Rinse it off, and enjoy a lighter, brighter hair. You may consider repeating the procedure for prominent colour change.
Hair mist: In a vessel, take 2 cups of water and add in 3 tablespoons of cinnamon powder. Bring it to boil and let it simmer until the quantity is reduced to half. Let it cool, strain and pour in a spray bottle. Use this as a hair mist before hair wash, as a texturizing hair spray or simply after hair wash. Your hairs will gradually become lighter.
