Today, cosmetic companies offer different methods of hair clarification. Thus, in one procedure, the owner of the blonde hair can become a blonde. Two or three procedures and a brunette can buy the desired blonde or even try to become the owner of platinum hair. But such procedures are not always safe.
Stores can easily spoil your strands. But you can change your color without shop chemistry. However, this process lasts longer. But the strands remain healthy, become more shiny, soft, obedient, strong and grow faster!
Results of hair clarification using folk remedies
With the help of gentle home remedies, the owners of blonde hair will be able to enjoy the color by a couple of tones lighter in 1 month. Girls with dark curls will see the first results in 2-4 weeks: their color will get a golden shine, and in 1.5-2 months the hair shaft will be 1-2 tones lighter.
Using “powerful” recipes, which give an instant result, blonde hair will be lightened by 2-3 tones at once, and dark – by 1-2 tones.
To preserve the health of strands, 2-4 times a month, also use moisturizing and nourishing masks.
If you’ve decided to lighten your hair at home, it’s better to know the features of the procedure in advance:
- Blondes, blondes, blondes and redheads will lighten the strands faster than brunettes and brown hair;
- It is easier to bleach fine hair, harder – harder;
- It is better to use several recipes in turn (the more diverse the food, the faster the results will be);
- Moisturise your hair with nourishing masks after each treatment;
- In order to maintain the health of the curls, it is better to use safe products and only in exceptional cases to use powerful ones;
- To avoid side effects, follow the recipes and do not increase the amount of food;
- If you have never dyed your hair, start with gentle products. You can start by rinsing with lemon or chamomile twice a week;
- Do not perform the procedure immediately after the perm. Wait 15-20 days and then act boldly;
- Do not store ready-made masks in the fridge;
- You can dye your hair 5-7 days after the hair is gentle and 2 weeks after the strong ones;
- Do not use peroxide and similar substances harmful to the strands (or use very seldom: they quickly discolor, but severely damage the hair). Frequent use will make the curls dry, brittle and weakened. Hair that has been damaged by strong products can fall out!
Products with natural products are suitable for any hair. If the strands are loosened, they should first be strengthened with moisturizing and nourishing masks (for 1-2 months). And then use folk remedies for clarification. Even if the hair is healthy, even in this case, you need to alternate the procedure with nourishing masks.
The recipes specify the dosage for medium length hair. If you have a long hairstyle, increase the proportions without changing the ratio of products.
