Since my last post, Ive added:
-cinnamon, it also has natural peroxide
-a capful of Apple cider vinegar. I think this is bringing out some reddish blonde tones!
-store bought conditioner to the mix (for consistency purposes).
It all depends upon how I'm feeling that day and what I want to put in my hair. And when I do my treatments (almost twice a week now, I'm rather impatient, I know) I still keep it on overnight, or if I know I'll be in the house all day I'll add the vinegar since those mixtures tend to drip a bit more, and I dont like trying to sleep with a drippy scalp lol.
I tried the lemon or ACV/water/peroxide mix earlier this summer a few times and it never worked for me, just dried me out. I think I have low-porosity hair. I read once on here that low porosity hair takes forever to absorb stuff and doesnt take well to lightening treatments? So Im assuming that being exposed to the natural peroxide from honey and cinnamon for a long period of time works better for me. Again, thats just what Ive concluded cus I'm still learning, but correct me if I'm wrong
My hair has become noticably lighter, people have begun to comment on it changing. I just woke up with my protective style and I have to head to work soon, but when I get home I'll post pictures of the progress
Oh one question though - Has anyone noticed that their tips are lightening faster than their roots? My tips are almost a chestnut brown, but my roots are still so dark youd think theyre still black...
