It has been scorching hot here this week. I guess it should be expected, it is August in Texas afterall. We adopted a new dog, a sweet chocolate lab named Beau. Beau loves to play outside and splash around in the baby pool with the girls. They love it too, so we have been spending the hot afternoons mostly outside.
It seems like the girls have developed these really amazing natural highlights over the summer, and while my hair had lightened a little, it was still darker than I wanted. I decided to help it along by whipping up a little natural hair lightening formula. All of the ingredients are natural lighteners on their own, so mixing them together just made sense to me. I have been spraying it on for the past few days before going outside in the afternoon, and my locks are already getting that sun kissed ombre look.
2 Cups Water
2 bags chamomile tea
juice of 2 lemons
1/4 cup honey
Place the tea bags in the water and microwave for 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and cover. Let sit 5 more minutes to brew the tea. Add the honey and lemon juice and give it a quick stir. Pour the tea into a spray bottle. Spray liberally on hair before heading outside to enjoy the sunshine!
