What happens when you pour together the best ingredients for lightening your hair?

You get a homemade finishing hair lightening spray!

What you need:

  • Strongly brewed chamomile tea
  • A spraying bottle
  • Lemon juice
  • Honey

Start by making a cup of tea.

Let (bottled or distilled) water boil for a few seconds and then pour it straight into a cup. First stir in your honey before adding your tea bag, I used 1 teaspoon of honey in my spraying bottle, which is 240 ml.

Let the honey melt, then add your chamomile tea bag. Let the tea cool down completely, leaving the tea bag in. You should now have a very strong brewed cold chamomile tea with a hint of honey.

Fill up 2/3 of the spraying bottle with this mixture. Now fill up the rest with lemon juice.

Give it a good shake before you spray it onto your hair.

Enjoy your new highlights!

    Will this work on black/really dark hair? I’ve searched up lemon and water diys for hair and they some say it will fry black hair

      Hi! If you’re worried about the lemon juice you can definitely leave it out and use more chamomile tea instead. Or you can always test it on a strand first. For darker hair I would actually recommend a honey and cinnamon hair mask. I’ll do a blog post about it soon!

    Strongly brewed saffron is fantastic for dark dark hair. It tends to give it more of a golden colour than light blonde – but I’ve always found its best to lighten your hair up with that first and then go with the lemon & chamomile. 🙂
