In this article, I am going to share some useful information about How To Dye Your Hair With Lemon Juice.

Do you would like to dye your hair but are scared of the chemicals and the harm they may cause? Well, there are a few other ways you can dye your hair – or rather, lighten or highlight it; and lemon juice is among the most efficient ways to do that.

Here are the How To Dye Your Hair With Lemon Juice

1. Prepare The Dye

To start making your ‘dye’, you need lemons. Take as many lemons you need to achieve full coverage (or partial coverage, in case you’re doing just the highlights). Take the lemons, and applying pressure with the heel of your hand, roll them on a hard surface. That is a great trick to extract more juice out of any citrus fruits.

2. Apply

Cut the lemons in quarters. Boil a cup of water. With this warm water, mix the freshly squeezed lemon juice. Ensure that the juice and water are equal in volume. In case your hair dries out rapidly, this might make it even frizzier. So mix equal portions of orange juice (since it’s some acidic content, though less than that of a lemon). In case you’ve dry hair, you may also add a squeeze of conditioner to the lemon mixture and whisk well.

3. Soak In The Sun

Bottle the mixture in a bottle of spray and cover your entire hair by spritzing. Once your whole hair is covered, run a sparse bristled brush across your hair. You might also wish to get highlights instead of full coverage. For this, soak a strip of haze in the lemon mixture and hold the piece of hair in your hand, clean it with a yard band. You might need to do a few coats in order to get the desirable contrast. In addition, keep some clips handy. Once you’re done with the strips, attach a clip to easily pick them up each time.

4. Finish

You need to sit in direct sunlight for a minimum of one hour or more for the color change to become visible. Therefore, pick a spot and sit facing away from the sun in order that your hair gets a majority of the exposure. In addition, since you’re going to sit in the severe sun for long, it’s advised to wear sunscreen. Use one with SPF 15 when applying it thickly on your entire face, neck and any exposed part of your skin. After an hour in the sun, reapply the juice and soak for another 30 mins.

5. Natural Additives

To complete the whole hair lightening process, wash your hair once the colour is set and give your mane deep conditioning. This is needed because lemon juice drastically lowers your hair’s pH level, that makes it dry out rapidly. If you would like your new highlighted locks to look smooth and silky, deep conditioning is absolutely necessary.

There are numerous additives that you could incorporate into your natural hair lightener to improve the effect of the lightener or make your hair softer and smoother.
