Have blonde hair? Give it that perfect summer look by naturally enhancing your hair color with this easy DIY tip. Mix 1 cup of lemon juice and 3 cups of cooled chamomile tea. Pour over damp hair and then lay out in the sun for 30 minutes to an hour. Rinse and follow with a good conditioner. Repeat for best results.
Why does this work? Chamomile is a time old ingredient used to lighten hair (it’s used in a lot of modern-day hair coloring products) and is a natural hair colorant. Lemon and chamomile together is a common combination to enhance blonde color. Chamomile is a natural emollient and is extremely soothing for the scalp (it has natural healing properties – anti-flammatory and anti-bacterial), thus strengthening and revitalizing the outer layers of hair. And we all know that lemon acts as a mild bleach that can lighten hair!
P.S. Brunnettes, just substitute coffee or a dark colored tea (such as English Breakfast)!
