For those of you who have questions about whether or not it is safe to lighten your hair with 3% peroxide, Yes, it is safe to use this solution! But be sure to moisturize your hair once or twice a week too, because the lightening will dry it out a bit.
- 1/2 cup distilled water
- 1/4 cup 3% solution hydrogen peroxide
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup chamomile tea left to steep until it’s strong
- A spray bottle
Make a half a cup of chamomile tea and allow it to be steep until you have a very strong tea. Ensure that you have a spray bottle as well, which you can place the spray in to make it easy to spray the mixture on your hair.
Once you have all the ingredients, put all your ingredients into your spray bottle and gently stir the ingredients until everything is thoroughly mixed.
How To use:
- After washing your hair and drying it a bit with a towel, spray directly on your hair. Either all over or in small sections for targeted highlights.
- Comb through. Leave on for one hour, then rinse and shampoo as usual.
- For expedited highlights, blow dry your hair while the spray is still on it, or sit in the sun while your hair air dries. The heat will speed the lightening process.
- You will need to use the spray several times before you start noticing results. However, if you use heat to style your hair, such as a blow dryer or a flatiron, you will probably see results a bit quicker.
