Hey guys! Today’s post is going to be on hair dye and how to lighten dyed black 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 because I was bored with my golden blond hair. Since my natural hair is black, I chose to dye my hair back to its natural color. 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. I had already tried this method few days back and since it worked pretty well on my hair I decided to share it with you all. 🙂
If you have recently dyed your hair black and regretted as it look like an artificial hair, follow this step to lighten it and for a more natural look …
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 color 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 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 for twice a week and you’d see the dye completely fade.
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 or Apple cider vinegar hair rinse to lighten your hair color.
