So if you wish to give a subtle sun-kissed update to your tresses at home, keep swiping for DIYs that will get the job done.

DIY Recipes Will Give You Sun-Kissed Highlights

The Citrusy DIY

You’ll Need:

  • Lemon
  • Warm water
  • Spray bottle

Method:

Step 1: To get started, squeeze the juice from the lemons into the spray bottle and add water. It’s best to add two parts of water for each part of lemon juice.

Step 2: Wet your hair, then spritz the lemon juice mixture throughout the lengths — or just over the sections you want to lighten. To maximise its lightening abilities, sit in the sun for up to 1 hour. Then, wash the lemon juice out of your hair. PS: Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to any exposed skin to protect it from the Sun!

You’ll need:

  • Chamomile tea bags
  • Hot water
  • Yogurt

Method:

Step 1: Leave the 3-4 tea bags steeping in hot water until it cools down.

Step 2: Shampoo and condition your hair and then apply the chamomile tea to your hair once it cools down. Don’t wash your hair afterward; instead, just let it air-dry.

The Easiest Of All

You’ll need: 

  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Olive oil

Method:

Step 1: To a bowl, add 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil to create a mask.

Step 2: Mix it all together. You can add a bit of conditioner if the consistency is too thick. Then, let the mixture sit for half an hour, giving time for hydrogen peroxide to activate. Apply the mixture to your hair, tie it up in a bun, and slap on a shower cap. Leave this on your hair for at least four hours. Even better if you can let it sit overnight, just remember to put a towel over your pillowcase to avoid stains.
