Want a change in your look? Subtle lightening or highlights might just do the trick, and you can do it yourself on the cheap.

Use one or a combination of these three items you probably have in your house right now:

  1. Peroxide: pour into a dark spray bottle.
  2. Lemon Juice: Pour into any spray bottle, but keep this in the fridge.
  3. Chamomile Tea: Steep 4-5 tea bags in 8 oz of hot water until cool. Squeeze out the bags, and pour into a spray bottle.

Whichever product you use, douse your hair until fully damp for overall lightening. For highlights or an ombre effect, spray on sections of hair. Leave on for up to two hours, preferably in the sun (wearing your sunscreen, right?) and let nature take its course. Shampoo out, and follow up with a good conditioner (I leave my conditioner in.) Regular application of coconut or jojoba oil helps counteract the slightly drying effects of lightening your hair. Enjoy your new look!
