In my on going search to find natural methods to lighten my hair, I came across this interesting article on lighting your hair using cinnamon. I’ve heard about cinnamon being good to help with baldness, but a hair lighter?? I dont know, But I may try this over the weekend- Have any of you ever tried this? If so what were your results? Inquiring minds would like to know 🙂
Things You’ll Need:
1. Combine cinnamon powder and hair conditioner in a one to one mixture. The amount you will need depends on the length of your hair; however, you should have enough to evenly coat your locks from root to tip.
2. Wet your hair and wring out the excess water. Comb your hair carefully to release any tangles which may prevent even distribution of the cinnamon and conditioner.
3. Apply the cinnamon and conditioner mixture evenly to your hair, mixing an extra batch if necessary. While you can’t use too much, if you use to little your lightening will end up uneven and streaky. You can comb through your hair periodically to help move the cinnamon and conditioner evenly throughout.
4. Gather your hair in a bun and secure it with a hair clip. Cover your head with a shower cap and leave the cinnamon and conditioner in your hair overnight. Rinse the mixture from your hair in the morning, shampooing as normal. If you would like to lighten your hair a bit more, apply the mixture again with no worry about damaging your hair.

I’m a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a poet, a philanthropist, a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, member of Order of The Eastern Star, and I have Lupus. I was diagnosed with Lupus in July 2011, after many years of unexplained illnesses, surgeries, and hospital stays.
My Lupus was discovered after a year struggle with a rash on my face that was spreading to my neck and chest. I had begun to also suffer from migraines, fatigue, joint pain (in my ankles and wrist), shortness of breath, and excessive sweating. I knew nothing about Lupus except it was a disease that Toni Braxton suffered from. I initially thought there was a magical pill I could take to get rid of it. I was informed that Lupus has no cure; it’s a disease I will live with for the rest of my life until a cure is discovered. I have dedicated the rest of my life to be a face-IN YOUR FACE- activist for a cure- I'm not hiding it-I'm FIGHTING it!
