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
