Cinnamon has a lot of beauty benefits especially when it comes to skin and hair. Lightening your hair with bleach leaves your hair dry, brittle, and damaged. Instead, use cinnamon to naturally lighten your hair.
This is completely natural and won’t damage your hair at all.
How to Lighten Your Hair With Cinnamon?
- Mix an equal amount of cinnamon powder with conditioner that is enough to cover the hair from top to bottom.
- Before applying this mixture, rinse your hair with water but squeeze out the excess water.
- It should be applied evenly to prevent streaking and tangles should be removed to ensure the even application of the mixture.
- Brush your hair a few times and tie it into a bun, covering it with a shower cap. Leave this mixture overnight and wash off the next morning.
Note: While buying cinnamon, smell it to ensure that it has a sweet smell which is an indication of freshness. Since both the Ceylon cinnamon and Chinese cinnamon are labelled as cinnamon, you have to be careful while buying it, keeping in mind your requirements.
Always prefer to buy organically grown cinnamon as it is less likely to be irradiated. Irradiating cinnamon causes a significant decrease in its vitamin C and carotenoid content.
