Now that summer is coming, every day at the beach is an opportunity to create a light, sunny, summer look. Let’s start with your hair: we’ll tell you 5 ways to lighten it naturally!
Summer is our favourite time of the year! In addition to holidays, beach moments and opportunities to discover beautiful places, we can return home full of new stories and a completely new look: tanned complexion, lightened hair, a bright face, what a joy!
If you also like the idea of making your face sunny and golden, we give you 5 tips to clarify your hair in a natural way to ensure that your hair remains clearer but no less hydrated, so you can also create these resounding beach waves, without damaging your hair in the heat:
Water + Lemon Juice
This formula works perfectly for hair with a dark blonde or light brown shade: just pour 100ml of water with the juice of 2 whole lemons into a sprayer. The lemon juice has a natural lightening effect and gives our hair the perfect summer look with little effort.
Once the formula is ready, just spray it on all the hair and let it dry in the sun, so that the lightening effect is even more powerful. If you’re on the beach, we recommend that you do it about half an hour before you leave, so you can wash your hair well in fresh water and moisturise it.
After 2 or 3 applications, you will already see the difference in tone. Don’t forget to always apply a post-sun moisturizer to make sure your hair looks great all summer long.
Herbal Tea With Chamomile
Is your hair too delicate or weak for a real lightening treatment? Then we recommend a gentle treatment with chamomile tea. In addition to its purifying and anti-inflammatory properties, chamomile is able to lighten your hair gently and therefore will make your hair naturally brighter without the aggressiveness of chemicals.
Honey For Lighter Hair
This popular and versatile natural beauty ingredient which, in addition to deeply moisturizing them, is able to lighten them and rekindle the blonde. The only drawback of this treatment is definitely cleaning up afterwards, because the honey is sticky and perhaps applying it on the beach is not a great idea. But you can apply it at home and put yourself in the sun, or create a hair mask made from honey and other ingredients.
Sodium Bicarbonate To Purify And Clarify The Hair
Another versatile ingredient and often used to create cosmetic and hygiene products, sodium bicarbonate is well known for its astringent and lightening properties. In fact, a spray with bicarbonate can clarify even the darkest hair, as well as being a powerful remedy to combat dandruff and a natural ingredient welcome if you’re looking for 100% natural substitutes for shampoo.
Be careful though: it is very important to use it sparingly, because it is an abrasive ingredient and can dry your scalp if used too often.
To use it on the beach, just dissolve 2 tablespoons of sodium bicarbonate in 250 ml of water and gently massage the mixture into the hair. After about 20 minutes of sun exposure, you can wash your hair thoroughly.
Beachblond With Sea Water
100% natural, seawater is also a powerful ingredient to clarify hair. We also understand that this is a longer treatment, so if you live far from the sea and want a more “golden” hair before the actual summer at your own, we recommend using the John Frieda Beach Blonde spray. In addition to being a spray that can give more volume to fine hair, it is the ideal product for making a beach waves hairstyle. It has sea salt in its composition to give texture and lighten them and coconut to moisturize and protect them from UV rays. A real must-have to lighten your hair at home.
