You will need
- - half a liter of Apple cider vinegar;
- - 50 grams of acacia honey;
- - 4 lemons;
- - 20 grams of chamomile flowers and calendula;
- - 50 grams of alcohol;
- - 30 grams of ground rhubarb root.
Mix Apple cider vinegar with the rhubarb and bring to a boil, then simmer, leave to simmer for another 10 minutes.
Squeeze the juice of two lemons and add into the boiling mass along with chamomile flowers and calendula. Hold the mixture for another 5 minutes on low heat, then let cool without removing lid, and strain on the remaining plants.
Add to the filtered solution of acacia honey, alcohol and juice the remaining two lemons. You get a dye with a lightening properties.
To lighten hair quite a bit, take one tablespoon of prepared dye, rinse hair after washing with this solution and rinse with cool water.
To lighten hair at 1.5-2 tone, apply the prepared paint on pre-washed hair and leave at least half an hour. After that, you can rinse the hair with clean water.
To give the hair a healthier look, do that before painting highlighted hair mask from the same acacia honey. Before applying the mask, wash your hair with shampoo with the addition of a small pinch of soda. After washing do not use conditioner or hair conditioner. Slightly dry the hair with a towel and apply the honey over the entire length. Leave the mask of acacia honey on hair for up to 9-10 hours and rinse.
The result from the resulting dye solution is not very durable, so if you want to save the color when painting, periodically repeat the procedure.
