  • Lightening Locs Naturally

     

    I've tried Henna (unfortunately I tried the henna powder, not the paste, so it left my locs FULL of bits!!! )
    but does anyone else know of any other chemical-free ways of lightening locs? I've heard something about lemon juice, but I thought that was only effective on european hair...?

    ive heard many ppl say lemon juice does work as well as using different herbs & brewing them like a tea ( for example chammomile for golden highlights).
    For me the sun & natural oxidation has lightened my ends.. I havent used any dye all...

    Lemon juice and/or ACV works.

    I also noticed my locks lighter towards the ends. I really like it. Natures color is pretty cool. I hear lemon juice will do the trick. :-)

    Thanks ladies! I think I'll try the lemon juice thing. my hair is a reddish-brown at the moment, so I'm not sure what kinda colour it'll turn out to be. I'm not sure whether to try it on just the ends or on one or two locs (just in case it goes bright orange!)

    Any idea how long it takes to work? I want to try and do it while we still have some sun here.

    Also, does it have to be lemon juice straight from the lemon, or can I use the bottled stuff?

    Thank you! Her album is really helpful! And i think I've found my Loc Idol! I found a fotki belonging to Nikki25 and THOSE are the locs to aspire to! They are beautiful!

    Has anyone done the lemon juice thing? Just wondering if there are any photos/testimonies of results...

    I tried lemon juice - not too excited about it.

    Personally I prefer lime juice - it seemed to work a bit better for me in terms of giving me some highlights as well as firming up my locs.

    I tried lemon juice as well and didn't notice much of a change. Perhaps I'll give the lime a try.

    Honestly, I have not used anything I just noticed some of my locks are lighter towards the ends. I recall my hair being this when way when I had the creamy crack in it. It literally would turn like a drk red sometimes. I hope my locks do that lol! Cheaper when nature does it for you!
