Hey guys! In today’s post, I am going to share this hack on how to lighten dyed dark hair at home with absolute zero market bleach. So how did I come up with this post?
So the story goes like this…A week back I dyed my hair black at home because I was super bored of my golden blond hair. To my horror, my hair became the darkest of black and it sort of looked like a wig! Since I wanted a simple and safe way to lighten my black hair without bleaching, I decided to try baking soda and shampoo to lighten my hair. You can try this hack if you want to get your dyed black hair to light brown as well.
If you have recently dyed your hair black and regretted it as it looks like artificial hair, follow this step to lighten it and for a more natural look …
lighten dark dyed hair naturally with these simple steps:
1st step– Damp your hair with warm water (make sure it’s not extreme hot!). This will open the cuticles of the hair and help to pull the colour off the hair easily.
2nd step– Mix baking soda and shampoo in a bowl. Just a bit of your regular shampoo and add 2 tbsp of baking soda will do. Mix it well and apply it on your damp hair as you would shampoo your hair regularly. Leave the mixture on for at least 15 minutes.
3rd step– Rinse it off with Luke warm water followed by a good moisturizing conditioner. Use cold water to rinse your hair after the conditioner.
How often should you use baking soda and shampoo to rinse your hair?
Do this twice a week and you’d see the dye completely fade. This is the gradual process to lighten black hair without bleach. If you want a quick solution, see an hairr expert or visit a salon nearby to help you.
I did it just for one day and I could already see my hair looked so much natural. 🙂
Apart from this, you can also try lemon juice to lighten dark dyed hair naturally.
