7 Tips to Lighten Your Hair ...


If you are keen to take your hair colour up a few shades in keeping with the summer sunshine, you’ll want to make sure that you’re aware of all of your options before you get started – one manoeuvre in this field and you could end up with your tresses in a serious mess.

Lightening your locks can be tricky and it’s always a good idea to do a little research to get yourself well informed;

this way, you’ll ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible.

In order to help you out, I’ve done a little investigation of my own and put together this list of 7 tips to lighten your hair.

1. Go Gradually

If you have jet black hair, it is not a good plan to take your colour all the way up to platinum blonde in one sitting.

This will simply result in a lot of breakage and a hefty dose of unpleasant brassiness as well.

Instead of aiming to bleach out your locks all at once, take your colour up gradually, no more than two shades at a time.

2. Keep Things Natural

If you have light brown or dark blonde hair to start with, and you’re keen to lighten your colour a little bit, a generous squeeze of lemon juice and a few minutes in the sun on a daily basis will help you to achieve the desired colour over time.

Take care to treat your locks with a deep conditioner on a weekly basis;

the acid in the lemon can cause dryness.2

3. Highlights

For most of us, lightening colour is synonymous with highlights.

This is a simple, subtle way to brighten up your locks and to introduce multi tones into you hair as well.

Over time, repeated highlighting will eventually give way to almost solid blondeness and a because of this, hair dressers often recommend it as a strategy by which to gradually achieve a lighter colour.
