Top 5 Natural Hair Lightening Ingredients

When you want lighter hair, the first thing you might consider is bleaching it. Unfortunately, this method can cause irreversible damage, leading to dry, brittle hair that falls too easily. 

It’s also very hard to predict what bleached hair will look like if you've never done it before, which means you’re at risk of ending up with a very expensive brassy look you hate. 

The good news is there are more natural ways to get a gorgeous beachy look gradually. Yes, this means you won’t get your desired results overnight, but you will have control over the end results (if you ask us, that’s way more important!).

Read on to discover the top 5 natural ingredients you can start using today to lightening your hair.

1. Lemon Essential Oil

The vitamin C in lemon juice can lighten the hair, and the same goes for lemon essential oil. This is one of nature’s BEST lightening ingredients! The effect is even stronger when the hair is exposed to sunlight.

2. Aloe Vera Leaf Juice

When combined with lemon juice or lemon essential oil, aloe vera can help lighten hair thanks to the high vitamin C concentration in both ingredients. Additionally, aloe vera offers your hair sun protection, so you can let your hair lighten in the sun after application without the risk of damage.

3. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is one of our favourite hair-lightening solutions. In fact, it’s a wonder ingredient that can be used in many of your beauty rituals. Not only does it balance the pH of your hair, but it’s also great for removing build-up which may be dulling your locks, making it looks shiny and healthy after just a few uses.

4. Chamomile Essential Oil

Chamomile essential oil has a brightening effect on your hair, while also deeply nourishing it and giving it a unique silkiness. Sun exposure has been known to increase the effectiveness of this natural hair lightener.

5. Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

Cinnamon essential oil is a natural hair lightener that is also full of antioxidants for that healthy shine. It also contains natural sunscreen that can help protect it from the damaging rays of the sun.
