Lighten your hair naturally at home without bleach

Highlight Your Hair - Lemon juice can lighten your hair naturally

Lemon is a natural bleach, and in this case, it will accelerate the sun’s ability to lighten our hair. This is a natural, safe (as long as you make sure the lemon juice doesn’t go into your eyes or touch your scalp) way to lighten your hair, and something I’ve done many, many times with no problems.

Highlight Your Hair - Lemon juice can lighten your hair naturallyIt’s basically how to lighten you hair in a way that is all-natural, much safer than all those chemicals in regular hair dyes, and best of all, it’s very inexpensive. Not to mention, it’s so ridiculous easy. Below is how you could make your own hair lightening spray:


Things you need:

3 large lemons
2 bags of chamomile tea
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 tbsp almond oil or coconut oil
an empty spray bottle

Highlight Your Hair - Lemon juice can lighten your hair naturallyDirections:

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and pour it in a spray bottle/mug/jar. You can opt to apply the juice directly to your hair using a brush or you can mix with warm water and spray using a spray bottle.

Spray the solution on your hair until it is dump. Note that for better results; do not wash your hair before spraying and you will be amazed on how does lemon juice lighten hair fast.

Find sun to activate the bleaching and sit for about one hour. You should start observing the changes after the first 30 minutes. After the changes now take shower to wash off the juice from the hair. Your hair will appear dry due to the effect of citric acid.

Dry your hair and apply a conditioner to rejuvenate it from the dryness effect of lemon juice.



The juice will only work with some sunshine, so get out there and make sure your hair gets some sun. The longer your hair is in the sun, the lighter it will get, although 20-30 minutes is more than enough to get a little bit of difference.

Aftercare would be as normal colored hair – even though this is a natural way, there still might be some slight damage to the hair, but it’ll be minimal. At worst, your hair will feel a bit more dry than usual, so I recommend doing a deep conditioning hair mask for a week after, or using my all time favorite natural hair moisturizer: coconut oil.
