Hair Highlighting Recipe

The recipe makes a total of 1.5 cups, which can be put into a spray bottle for application to your hair.

- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- Half a cup of fresh lemon juice
The chosen ingredients were carefully selected to keep your hair healthy. The cinnamon contains peroxide, which helps it lighten your hair without drying your hair out thanks to the olive oil. Honey and chamomile are known to lighten hair as they each contain chemicals that actively work to do so.
Start by boiling a pot of water, and pouring it into a teacup. Place the chamomile tea bag into the hot water and steep it until the water cools. It should take around half an hour, though it may vary.
Pour the chamomile tea into an empty, clean spray bottle. Don’t let the liquid fill more than half of the bottle. Add the olive oil, cinnamon, honey, and lemon juice to the tea.
Shake it well, making sure that every ingredient combines evenly.
Spray it onto wet hair liberally. Brush it through with a fine-toothed comb to disperse the mixture across your hair evenly.
Lounge in the sun for a little while, and let your hair soak it up as much as possible. Your hair should lighten quite a bit!
