Are you thinking of going lighter this season? Rather than damaging your hair by bleaching, highlighting or balayaging, here’s how to lighten your hair this summer without the need of a dye job.
If you have already read our top blonde hair shades for this summer, then you’ll already know that lighter hair shades are popular this season. However, we think it’s time to ditch the bleach bottle and opt for safer ways to lighten your hair, like these below.
For those who are looking for a quick lightening fix this summer, then the Bobby Glam Highlight & Blusher Wefts will give you lighter locks in no time. These can simply be clipped in to create natural looking highlights, just by choosing a shade that’s one or two shades lighter than your own hair colour. Plus, there’s no dye required so you can go back to your darker hair shade once summer departs.
Use a colour shampoo like the Tigi Catwalk Fashionista Violet Shampoo and Conditioner to help lighten your blonde locks this summer. What with violet dyes, this colour shampoo is designed to remove brassy tones in blonde hair and enhance cool, light highlights instead. After a couple of washes, you’ll start to notice a difference and see how bright your once dull blonde locks have become. Hurrah!
For the naturalists among us, why not take it back to basics and lighten your hair this summer with a juice of a lemon? Before highlights and the balayage effect came into place, the easiest and most cost effective way to get sun-kissed hair was to apply lemon juice to your hair before going out in the sun. However, if you don’t fancy getting sticky or having the remainder of pulp in your hair, then add it to a home hair mask instead. This way, you’ll save on the messiness and your scalp will be less itchy, too (did we mention that citrus juice is extremely acidic?).
