Default Vitamin C + shampoo to lighten hair

I've been watching videos on YouTube about this and it does work. Watch them and see how it goes. I've only seen one thread of this and not sure how many curlies know of this. Just wanted to give out what I found for not chemically damaging your beautiful curls . I'm gonna do this soon so I'll put pictures up.

What do you think Ascorbic acid is otherwise known as?

Just because something is natural it doesn't mean it's not a chemical and can't be harmful.

Just because someone on YouTube claims it is not damaging doesnt meN that is true. Any lightening is damaging, it destroys melanin pigment blowing holes in the cortex making hair more porous. This can only be achieved by raising the cuticle.

Both overly strong acids (which vitamin C treatments can be) and many shampoos can damage hair if left to soak on the hair. Look how dish soap breaks down fats on greasy oven dishes when left to soak, shampoo can do the same to hair's structural lipids.

I know honey is meant to be a natural hair lightener (which is why I'm too scared to use it in my treatments lol). So that's another option! Also lemon juice, rhubarb and Chamomile tea!

Lemon juice is another acid - it's a great household cleaner and very useful for removing limescale.

It's called a pair of sissors.

Yes if you don't want damaged hair then you are going to have to cut if off.

Otherwise go to a salon and get a professional to change the colour for you.
