How to make blonde hair go lighter

Ok so I am completly with people who have blondy browny hair but want to make it a couple of shades lighter without dyeing it. Because that's me.


 


I have light brown hair with natural blonde highlights which is blonde in the summer, brown in the winter... Believe me, I have researched lots of products which will help and I have come up with a list. Here goes:


 


My top hair lightening products (in no order)-


 


- Sun in.


Sun in has been around for ages, my mum used it when she was little, and they used to have three types, 1 2 and 3. 1 is basically lots of lemony stuff and natural stuff that is not permanent so won't dye your hair. 2 is more dyeish and will lighten your hair until it's a bright blonde and you can't wash it out it will just fade over time. 3 is practically a dye... it lightens it and then fades after a few months. So when I found out about it I wanted to use No. 1 but they don't sell it anywhere that I can find it in the UK so as no.2 is more dye like I decided not to go there...


With no.2 you can put it on your roots and when your hair grows you will get blonde highlights.


 


- John Frieda Sheer Blonde Collection.


There is a range of them but I have found the best to work on me and the most effective is the Go blonder shampoo and conditioner. There conditioner does add a bit to it but you don't have to buy it for it work well. I'm not going to go through each product but they have a website and john frieda is sold at boots and superdrug...other places like that and also online.


 


Other things...


 


- Chammomile tea.


Ha ha it's not really a product well it is it's tea but your meant to lighten your hair. Get a strong tea and put it in a bottle and spray it on.


Rumor has it that you should pull your hair into a pony tail when you do these things so that you get natural scattered highlights.


 


- Rhubarb extract is supposedly meant to lighten your hair... I don't know but give it a try - I'm going to!


 


- Light vinegar rinses but not too much or too strong as vinegar can be quite bad and drying for your hair.


 


- The obvious one, lemon... again as with vinegar it can be drying and damaging to your hair when applied too much because of the acidic  levels.


 


- Also when your on holiday go swimming in a pool and come out and sunbathe until your hair is dry and the chlorine will help it go lighter.


 


Hope I helped :) x

I would try more natural things before you start dying it so maybe switching your shampoo to one which brings out blonde highlights? John frieda has lots of them in their range Sheer blonde though you won't get amazing results because you have dark hair though it would contribute a bit. Try sun in no. 3 would work on dark hair as well though it would take longer, and I'd give most of the suggestions in the blog before you start dying it gradually lighter. If you are dying it try going dark brown, then medium brown, light brown and then blonde or you could use sun in or something like that because I have light brown hair and these products work on me. Hopefully I helped :)
