Brown hair has the right to a beach throwback effect too! When summer arrives, the sun tends to lighten our hair, giving it pretty golden highlights. But how do you get better results? There are many natural tips to achieve sun-kissed highlights on your brown hair for a sun-kissed effect to die for!
It is well known that hair tends to turn blond in summer. And for good reason, the sun has a lightning effect even on brown hair. If the skin tends to produce more melanin when reacting to UV rays, the hair becomes lighter. Indeed, the hair is a dead material, it will not produce more melanin because the cells which produce it, the melanocytes, will not react to UV. Thus, the melanin will be destroyed. This is why even brown hair becomes lighter with exposure to the sun. This phenomenon is accentuated by seawater as well as by chlorinated water which oxidizes the hair and therefore makes it lighter. Summer is therefore the season when even brown hair becomes lighter and is adorned with sunny highlights.
If you like this back to the beach effect, it is possible to accentuate it or even make it last throughout the year. There are chemical lighteners that reproduce this sunny effect called sun-kissed, they are often found in the form of spray or jelly. Often, these hair products contain hydrogen peroxide or hydrogen peroxide which oxidizes melanin by removing the dark color of the hair in order to lighten it and thus give golden highlights. While it is safe to use hydrogen peroxide to lighten your dark hair, there are some other homemade tips for getting sun-kissed hair, too. Here are several recipes to put some sun in your brown hair for the summer and all year round!

Apple cider vinegar is not only good for the health, for the skin but also for the hair! It is used in particular to make home hair clarifications because it eliminates dandruff as well as pollution residues or styling products. This then helps the hair to grow faster and be much shinier. Plus, apple cider vinegar helps lighten brown hair naturally.
To do this, always think about diluting the vinegar in water, preferably demineralized or floral water of orange blossom or chamomile for example. As with the chamomile recipe, put this homemade preparation in a spray bottle to spray it all over your hair for easier application and to avoid forgetting an area of your hair. Once your brown hair is soaked in the preparation, leave it on for about 15 minutes.
All you need to do is rinse your hair with clean water and shampoo, preferably mild so as not to damage your hair.
Note that it is essential to perform this homemade lightning treatment several times to see results. Also, avoid using apple cider vinegar on any hair color, it could damage your color. In addition, it is important to apply a moisturizer after using this homemade apple cider vinegar recipe as well as to nourish your hair well with an oil such as coconut oil.
Lemon is used to make hair shinier, but that's not all! It contains citric acid which has lightning properties to naturally illuminate the hair by creating pretty sunny highlights.
To lighten your brown hair with lemon, mix about a tablespoon of lemon in a cup of deionized water or floral water of your choice. Do not hesitate to double or even triple the proportions according to the length of your hair. Then apply your homemade mixture to all of your brown hair using a spray. Leave on and if possible expose your hair to the sun until your hair dries naturally. Once they are dry, rinse them thoroughly with clear water before making your shampoo and conditioner, preferably moisturizers. After the vinegar trick, don't forget to nourish your hair with a little coconut oil or a nourishing treatment.
Less known for its lightening properties than chamomile or lemon, cinnamon has the power to light brown hair. It is an ingredient of choice because it does not damage the hair fiber.
To lighten your brown hair, mix 2 tbsp of cinnamon powder with a tbsp of lemon juice, 1 tsp of honey, and 1 tbsp of your usual moisturizing mask.
After your shampoo, apply your homemade cinnamon mask all over your hair and cover it with a shower cap. We recommend that you leave it on overnight and rinse your mask off when you wake up because you have to leave the mixture on for at least 5 hours, which can be relatively long. All you have to do is rinse your hair well with clean water before washing it again, it will then be well lightened.
There is a variant of this recipe where we prefer to use two cups of distilled vinegar instead of lemon as well as a tablespoon of olive oil instead of the mask for a 100% natural recipe. The process is then the same! Apply your mask all over your hair before leaving it on overnight. In the morning, all you have to do is rinse, wash and dry your hair as usual.
Cinnamon lightens brown hair gradually, so it is essential to repeat the operation several times until you get the desired result.
Honey is also a natural lightener, so it is used to lighten brown hair. Indeed, its sweet enzymes contain hydrogen peroxide, which gradually lightens the hair over the care of honey.
Choose rather liquid honey like acacia honey. Mix 2 tablespoons of honey with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of lemon with a little floral water or preferably distilled water.
Then apply this homemade mask all over your hair before covering it with a swimming cap. Leave this mask on your hair for at least two hours, the best is to leave it on overnight and rinse it off with clean water the next morning. Then wash your hair with your shampoo and go through your usual beauty routine.
Whichever option you choose, don't forget to hydrate your hair well with a leave-in treatment or vegetable oil of your choice.
