If you want to know how to make homemade hair bleach, you will first need to understand that you should never use chlorine bleach on your hair. Splashed bleach on your scalp or face can be very dangerous. You will need to have a different type of bleach for your hair lightening exercises. While you can’t expect to bleach jet black hair to a platinum blond, you may be able to add light highlights or even to go several shades lighter overall.
Lightening your hair with homemade products is a multi step process. Begin by collecting the ingredients you will need so they are available when you are ready for them. These products are available in most households. Lemon juice, peroxide and chamomile flowers is one recipe that you may find satisfactory.
You should start by shampooing the hair. A mild shampoo is preferable, but you should follow your regular shampoo regimen. Apply lemon juice on the hair. If you want to lighten your entire head, no further action is needed. If you just want a sun bleached look, use a comb and apply the lemon juice only on the part of the hair that you want to lighten. Sit in direct sunlight until hair has dried, or up to twenty minutes.
Mix one-quarter cup of peroxide with enough water to complete a rinse with the solution. Check the shade of the strands of hair to determine if you have lightened it to the shade that you want. If not, do a second rinse with a half-cup of peroxide and water.
Once hair is lightened to the preferred shade, steep one-half cup of chamomile flowers in several cups of boiling water. After the mixture has cooled, you should rinse hair strands with the chamomile tea. This type of conditioning agent is mild and makes your hair smell great.
