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.
