Natural lightening Methods

redhead17redhead17 Posts: 11Registered Users
Had anyone ever lightened their hair with rhubarb and lemon juice? Or maybe honey? I want to lighten my red hair naturally but I want something that works fast. If someone could tell me a good method or show their before and after photos it would really help. Thanks in advance!

    Lemon juice works with sunlight, the citric acid accelerates the oxidising process of UV bit it is very drying. I'm guessing the oxalic acid in rhubarb has a similar effect. Raw honey is extremely slow, it's a very weak source of peroxide.

    The only quick way to lighten your hair is persulphate bleach or peroxide box dyes. You can limit damage by dying over coconut oil.

    Does lemon work without the sun? I want to try it soon but it's raining.
