How can you dye dark hair lighter?


Quick Answer

One of the easiest ways to dye dark hair lighter is to use a homemade dye made from honey, white vinegar, water, olive oil and ground cinnamon. This overnight procedure works because honey is a natural source of hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient in many hair bleaches. The required supplies are a hairbrush, a wide-toothed comb, a medium bowl, a shower cap, a shower, a clean towel, a fork, a clean plastic spray bottle, honey, white vinegar, water, olive oil, ground cinnamon and a small paintbrush.

  1. Mix the dye

    In a medium mixing bowl, combine 2 cups white vinegar, 1 cup raw honey, 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon. Blend the ingredients together with a fork.

  2. Dampen your hair

    Fill the spray bottle with water, and mist your hair. Comb your hair to distribute the moisture evenly.

  3. Apply the dye

    Apply the dye with a small paintbrush. Cover all of your hair with the honey mixture, and then don a shower cap. Leave the dye in your hair overnight.

  4. Rinse your hair

    Turn on the shower, remove the shower cap, and rinse your hair. Squeeze your hair to remove excess water, and then wrap it in a towel. Squeeze the towel to extract more moisture, then comb your hair, and allow it to dry naturally. Apply the honey mixture daily until you feel satisfied with your hair color.
