Summer is here so why not get that summer look without spending that summer cash?

Yahoo! Beauty has 4 amazing ways that you can lighten your hair without damaging or your bank account!


1. Honey

That's right honey is the perfect lightening ingredient because it has small amounts of hydrogen peroxide but it also moisturizes your hair to counter the drying effects of lightening your hair. Honey is extremely sticky so it would be a bit annoying to wash out but it's all worth it for those gorgeous summer locks!

2. Chamomile

Chamomile enhances blonde undertones because of it's natural golden hues. The sun will work to naturally brighten your hair and won't damage it at all or create a brassy mess.

3. Lemon

The lemon juice is full of acids that lift color and create subtle highlights. Since, lemon can be a little drying, feel free to add some conditioner to the mix and reapply every half hour to get your hair bright and beautiful.

4. Cinnamon

Cinnamon lifts and subtly lightens dark hair without making your hair brassy or orange looking. The best part is, cinnamon is one of the safest ingredients so you can use it as much as you want at no harm to your hair!
