Unfortunately, a lot of commercial hair dyes are not 100% safe. After using these dyes time after time they can bring damage to your hair and scalp.
Because they are effective and much safer it is important to use natural products or folk recipes. With a little effort and some time you can even make them at home. Chamomile has been long used as a natural way to create highlights. It makes blond hair shinny, lighter, and healthier looking.
Moreover, Chamomile contains many natural substances which nourish and strengthen hair. It contains pigments, vitamins, minerals and essential oils. They all have a positive impact not only on the hair, but also on the scalp. Chamomile helps moisturize, disinfect, improve blood circulation and soothe… this is why chamomile is widely used in the cosmetic industry.
Chamomile can be used in fresh or dry form: its effectiveness depends on the concentration in the tincture or concoction, as well as on the duration of the application to the hair. You can lighten your hair from 1 to 3 shades, or apply a chamomile hair mask which will make your hair stronger and shinier.
If your hair is blonde, chamomile will give it a golden color. If your hair is brown it will refresh it and even helps cover grey spots.
