Whether you're scared of taking the full-on platinum plunge, aren't allowed to hit the bleach or just want a super natural way of lightening your hair at home: this is it.

Here's three totally natural ways to lighten your hair at home:

Raw Honey

Sounds like a sticky recipe for disaster - but raw honey is actually a really good natural hair lightener because when diluted, it contains hydrogen peroxide. 

Mix in some of the sticky stuff with your favourite conditioner and then apply overnight before thoroughly washing your hair. After just one treatment your hair should look a couple of shades lighter.

Lemon Juice

People have been squeezing lemon juice into their locks for YEARS to get sunkissed highlights in the summer. It takes a bit longer than the honey method - but by spritzing hair with lemon juice before sitting in the sun leaves your hair with perfect natural highlights. Winner. 

Chamomile 

Chamomile works in the same way that lemon juice does to give natural lightening. Brew some chamomile tea (add a few bags for a heftier dose) and let cool. Then pop it in a spray bottle and spritz onto your hair. Spend a few hours in the sun and ta-daaa: natural highlights.
