When you want to highlight your hair you should do it naturally using natural ingredients and not a chemically filled high lightening hair product. One of my favorite things to do to get some natural high lights into my hair is by using my homemade lemon chamomile hair high lightening mask. It is very easy to make and very pleasant to use. After using this mask you will have nice reddish or golden colored highlights in your hair, and your hair will be soft and shiny.
The ingredients in the homemade lemon chamomile hair high lightening mask are 2 cups of aloe Vera gel, 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, ½ cup of organic honey, 1 cup of chamomile herbal tea, and ½ cup of jojoba oil. All of these ingredients can be found in your local grocery and whole food stores if you do not already have these ingredients on hand. I know I personally seem to always have these ingredients in my kitchen and bathroom so it is really easy to make when I need too highlight my hair.
The way to make the homemade lemon chamomile hair high lightening mask is by placing the 2 cups of aloe Vera gel, 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, ½ cup of organic honey, 1 cup of chamomile herbal tea, and ½ cup of jojoba oil into a small mixing bowl. Then you want to combine the ingredients together using a wire whisk until you have a slightly thick golden yellow colored hair mask with a light lemon chamomile scent to it. Once the mask is made you can place it into a plastic container or jar and place it into the refrigerator until you are ready too use it. This hair high lightening mask should be used with in two days after it is made.
Now when you are ready to use the homemade lemon chamomile hair high lightening mask you will want to scoop the mask right up with your hands and lather into your dry hair from roots to ends until your hair is completely covered in it. The mask will feel slightly oily, watery, and possibly even sticky. This is perfectly normal. If you find the mask is too watery you can just pour the mask over your head instead and work it in to your hair using your hands and fingers. Once the mask is in your hair you are going to want to take a shower cap and place it over your head with your hair tucked into it because if you don’t the mask will drip all over you and I don’t think you want that. After you have the mask and shower cap on you can leave the mask in your hair for up to 30 minutes. While the mask is in your hair you will want to go outside in the sunshine and sit underneath the sun and allow the suns light to warm the mask right up and help activate the ingredients high lightening powers. After 30 minutes is up you can go inside rinse your hair out and wash it with some shampoo. Then you should notice as you are blow drying or air drying your hair the natural highlights standing out. If you want your hair even lighter do the mask one more time. The more you do it the lighter your hair will get. You will also notice your hair will be much softer and shinier as well. I know I most certainly did when I used this hair mask to lighten up my hair.
See adding highlights to your hair doesn’t need to involve chemical filled highlighting hair care products. All you need is a bit of ingredients from mother earth, a bit of sunshine, and time and you will then have naturally highlighted hair. Hope those of you who try this out get the natural beautiful highlights you are looking for.
