Enhance red undertones with cinnamon
This option is a winner since it can be used by brunettes, blondes and redheads alike. In fact, it works on pitch black hair too.
- Simply mix two tablespoons of raw honey with one tablespoon of cinnamon powder.
- Add a teaspoon of olive oil.
- Then stir in a tablespoon of conditioner.
- Apply to your hair and leave on for at least an hour.
Consider leaving the mixture on overnight for darker hair. To remove, just rinse your hair with warm water.
Naturally lighten your hair with lemon juice
This method works best on lighter hair. In addition, it only require one ingredient: lemon juice. Apply to your hair and leave on for as long as possible before rinsing. As an added bonus, your hair will smell great and look shinier too.
Give baking soda a try
Mix some baking soda with water for an especially easy hair-lightening mask. Apply the past to your tresses and let the mixture sit for an hour before rinsing. This works particularly well to lift colour if you’ve dyed your hair before.(All4Women)
