DIY hair highlights

It’s no secret that sometimes we all wish we could colour our own hair to save a little bit of time and money! Well, here are a few tips on how you can do just that…

Lemon Juice

YES! that’s right… lemon juice is a brilliant way to get some natural highlights in. Simply juice some fresh lemons in a spray bottle and dilute with water. Spray directly onto hair and sit in the sun for a few minutes. The natural bleaching properties of the lemon will lighten your hair in no time! This technique is perfect for light mousy blonde/brown hair but not to worry; dark brunettes we have an option for you too…

Chamomile Tea

This technique is a lot more delicate in comparison to lemon Juice, which is great for the dark haired brunettes. Simple brew a batch of chamomile tea, let it cool and rinse your hair with it after you’ve shampooed and conditioned it. You will notice a faint change so it might be worth doing this technique a couple of times to achieve a good result.


You don’t always have to drink it! Choose a light beer, rinse your hair with it and leave it on for 20 minutes, it’s also handy to keep topping it up with a spray bottle whilst you wait. The longer you leave it on your hair the lighter your hair will get! Yay!


Another Natural bleaching hair technique, simple mix some honey with water to dilute it and massage it into the hair. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse it out of your hair with shampoo and condition. Again, this technique is not as strong as the lemon juice so you may have to do this a couple of times to see a noticeable result on your hair.

Enjoy experimenting for that summer beach look!
