Hair How-To: Create a Highlighting Spray

Create natural highlights at home.



Create an easy, at-home highlighting solution that you can easily pack to take with you to the beach.

What You'll Need:
1 spray bottle
1 lemon
1 chamomile tea bag (not loose leaf)
1/4 cup hydrogren peroxide
About 3/4 cup of water (1/2 cup for the tea and 1/4 to fill)

Here's How to Make It:
Step 1:
First, make a cup of chamomile tea and let it cool. Then add that to the spray bottle.

Step 2: Next, add the juice from a freshly squeezed lemon.

Step 3: Add the hydrogen peroxide.

Step 4: Finally, fill the rest of the spray bottle with room temperature water.


Here's How to Use It:

Step 1: Spray on damp hair either all over or in concentrated sections (like the tips for an ombré effect).
Step 2: Leave on for an hour and then rinse thoroughly.
Step 3: If you want your hair lightened a lot, leave on and reapply every two hours while sitting at the pool or beach.
