  1. Try disolving the baking soda in 1/2 cup of either Chamomile or Green Tea infsuion(strong) instead of plain water.

    1. it depends on how long you do it! The lighter your hair, the least likely you are to notice it lightening it. Try using about 25 vitamin C tablets, 3/4 a cup of baking soda and half a cup of clarifying shampoo like Prell. Put it on damp hair and then put a shower cap over your hair and sleep in it. Rinse it out in the morning, but don't shampoo. It'll add too many chemicals to your hair. You should condition it, though. :-] I hope this helps! And wasn't way too late!

  10. pry would work better with peroxide in place of water if u really want to lighten your hair or Camille tea would enhance golden highlights but wont really bleach it at all unlike peroxide

  11. I began to experiment with Baking Soda + Cornstarch on my hair- as a friend showed me how to make a "natural" deodorant- mixing the two together & applying to my underarm area with a cotton ball(it works!!). I then began to notice my underarm hair started to lighten several shades(hmm?). I began to "shampoo" my hair and scalp with the two- added to a 50/50 mix of distilled water + 3% hydrogen peroxide(in the brown bottles). After 2 months, it has lightened my dark brown hair to a(best way to describe it): "warm golden, brownish-blonde" shade-as well as helped with less falling/shedding hairs in the sink & shower. This may also be because I stopped using commercial shampoos(BAD for hair!). It personally works well for ME- but you could experiment with it to see if it helps your particular hair situation. Best of luck!

  12. Tried it and it worked great, my hair was noticeably lighter. I left it in for 15-20 minutes before I washed it out.

  13. I made this "recipe" today with some modifications by mixing really well lathering clarifying shampoo with a few teaspoonfuls of baking soda and left it on for 10 minutes on dry hair. Mixed well and massaged from roots to ends, coating my whole hair. After this, I added some warm water, worked to a lather to make sure it would not cause any blotches and left on an additional 5 minutes. Hair came out 2 shades lighter but quite wiry so I had to make a coconut oil mask. I guarantee it works, at least on medium colored hair or so as to fix a coloring accident where the hair has gone too dark (I fixed an unintentional salon mistake this way and back to original bright blonde with highlights and all). I think one could keep it longer but it may cause irritation, at least my mixture came out a bit strong! Make sure you rinse your hair well and deep-condition after use.

  14. Went to a salon for a colour treatment to cover the grey temples on my auburn head. Came out all glossy but looking a bit like Morticia! It really was too dark with my redhead pale freckly skin. Fortunately came across this site and used the formula today mixed with baby shampoo. Watched happily as the water in the shower turned brown knowing that it was coming out. It is not totally fixed but I reckon with another couple of shampoos I will be happy. So yes it worked for me.
