2. Bleeding to lighten the hair

How to lighten your hair naturally? The revival will help us in this.
It is not very popular herb in our country, growing wild in meadows and fields. Food preparations are mainly used in medicine – in small doses to improve the functioning of the digestive tract, and in higher doses they have a laxative effect. Of course, hair maniacs have long discovered the great effect of refreshing our hair – it delicately lightens the hair by a few tones, but does not damage it. This herb contains  malic acid, responsible for lightening and chrysophanol, which, like in Cassi, gives the hair golden reflex. It is definitely worth getting interested in this plant and including it in your hair care. It is definitely one of the cheapest and healthiest methods to lighten our hair, known for a long time in the world of hair bloggers.

3. Cassia and Senes for lightening hair.

Cassia is a great method of lightening the hair, especially after unsuccessful hair dyeing, when the color is a bit too dark. Despite the fact that Cassia itself does not brighten anything, after just one application of this mask, we can notice a bright, warm tone or even a honey glow on each hair color. This is due to the dye contained in Cassi, the ingredient responsible for this visual brightening is  chrysophanol. Senna dyes her hair a more yellow color, which does not always look nice on blonde hair, especially light hair – some girls after a few applications have reached a shade of almost canary! However, the addition of a small amount of henna reduces this effect, you can also use Senes mixed with Cassia and other blends, e.g. brown, to lighten the target color of the paint a bit. The glow on the dark hair in this case is nice and more visible than in the case of Cassi, and such dyeing is also much cheaper.

Additionally, after each such treatment, our hair will become stronger, because these herbs deeply nourish and regenerate the hair and strengthen its bulbs.

Other natural hair lightening methods

What else can we try to lighten our hair with? Natural methods such as the use of cinnamon, honey, lemon juice, vinegar or anwte malic acid can help us in this.

I will write about these methods in a separate post, and a link to it will appear here soon.


Natural methods do not work as spectacularly as chemical paints, but the systematic use of this mixture of herbs, supported by daily, conservative hair care, will certainly allow us to achieve the desired, brighter color without damaging the hair.

And who said we need chemical, toxic preparations that damage our hair?
