Q:

How can you slowly and safely lighten your hair?

A:

Lighten your hair slowly and safely with a homemade spray made from lemons, almond oil, chamomile tea and ground cinnamon. You also need an empty spray bottle, a chef's knife, a spoon, a Pyrex measuring cup and a pot of hot water. This procedure takes about 20 minutes.

  1. Steep the tea bags

    Steep two chamomile tea bags in 1 cup of very hot water. Keep them in the water for at least five minutes.

  2. Juice the lemons

    Roll three lemons on a hard surface, pressing down firmly as you roll. Slice the lemons in half and squeeze them into the steeping tea. If any seeds fall into the liquid, scoop them out.

  3. Remove the tea bags

    Use the spoon to scoop up the tea bags and press them against the side of the measuring cup. Extract as much liquid as possible, then discard the bags.

  4. Add ground cinnamon and almond oil

    Add 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of almond oil. Stir the mixture and pour it into the spray bottle. Attach the nozzle.

  5. Shake the bottle and apply the spray

    Shake the bottle vigorously. Spray the mixture over the parts of your hair you wish to lighten, then go outside and spend time in the sun. The more sunlight your hair receives, the lighter it becomes.

  6. Refrigerate the unused spray

    Store the bottle in your refrigerator. Use the remaining spray within a week.
