♒ DIY kool-aid hair dye & DIY hair lightening ♒

Hello ladies, :)

                   Hope everybody is keeping there well. So today with hair talk.
 I'm sure at least once in a life time you have colored your hair..right?
 There are hair color with various chemicals out there, but here I have a chemical free way to get any color you desire. 

*A quick little note, if you have black or dark hair this method won't really give a pigmented color. So to achieve a high pigmented color you can lighten your hair with this method,

Hair lightening

you'll need,

- Lemon or lime juice   
- Sun light

1. Squeeze half of a lemon or lime in to a small bowl.
2. Part your hair, and add your lemon juice on strands where you need to be lightened.
3.Stay outside in sunlight for about 30mins 
4. Wash your hair as normally and dry  
5. Do this few times until you achieve to results you expected. 

So if you are happy with  the way you hair turned out, lets go and color it crazy shall we!

Kool-aid hair dyeing

Kool aid! yes yes! the refreshing drink!
I'm sure you have heard of this before, but didn't really try to do it.  I really don't know if there's a substitute for kool-aid for those who can't find them. If i came across something I will be happy to update this post.
