  • 4 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
  • Half cup of water
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil/ coconut oil

This mixture will help you to have your desired hair naturally at home.

  1. Salt

Yes, you read it right. Salt is also one of the herbal ways to naturally lighten your hair

Another famous blogger says that salt in the water with being under the sun is all you’re looking for.

You’ll need these supplies:

  • A tablespoon of salt
  • Half cup of water

Apply the mixture on your hair for 15 minutes and stay under the sun for best results.

  1. Herbal Henna

Henna powder is one of the natural ingredients for dying hair. People from ancient times used henna powder to have brown/ light hair immediately.

Ingredients you’re looking for:

  • 4 tablespoons Henna powder
  • Half cup boiling water

If you combine this mixture and leave it overnight, then it will yield long-lasting results. Apply it for 3 hours, then rinse it with lukewarm water while having your favorite shampoo in less amount.

  1. Baking Soda

Baking soda is also known as a natural bleaching agent. Baking soda may be harsh for hair so you will have to be very careful while applying this remedy.

You’ll need:

  • Half cup baking soda
  • Water up to desire

You have to mix these ingredients and make a paste. If the paste will be thin, it won’t cover evenly and if it gets too thick then it will dry so quickly and won’t work well.

As I above mentioned, baking soda can be a little harsh for your hairs so I recommend you to apply this exactly for 15 minutes and then rinse it with lukewarm water+ shampoo. After this also apply your favorite conditioner to have a flawless finish.

  1. Chamomile:

Chamomile is the best natural way for bleaching your hair. My mother swears chamomile to lighten the darker hair so let’s try our mother’s herbal method this time.

Things you will need:

  • A cup of chamomile
  • Boiling water

First, brew the chamomile cup of tea strong and then let it cool for some time. Now you can apply the individual hair strands like highlights or the easiest way, you can apply evenly on your all hair for one shade. For better results go under the sun and let it dry completely, then finish it by washing it with your shampoo.


All these above-mentioned methods are safe, but this is to be noted that everyone has a different hair texture so the results can vary. You can also have a strand test before applying any remedy to your full hair. I also suggest that all-natural bleaching agent doesn’t damage your hair like chemicals do, but they can also give you dry hair texture. So after using any herbal remedy don’t forget to condition your hair perfectly.
