LEMON HIGHLIGHTER
(for blond hair)

Juice of 2 lemons
1 oz. mild shampoo

Mix both ingredients. Leave on hair for 15 to 20 minutes while under a dryer or in the sun. Rinse out.

 

LEMON-LIME HIGHLIGHTER
(for blond hair)

Juice of 1 lemon
1 oz. mild shampoo
Juice of 2 limes

Mix all ingredients. Leave on hair for 15 to 20 minutes while under a dryer or in the sun. Rinse out.

 

MARIGOLD HIGHLIGHTER
(for red high-lights in blonde or brown hair)

1/3 C. crushed marigold flowers
2 1/2 C. water

Simmer flowers in water in a non-metal pot for 20 minutes. Remove from heat; strain when cool, saving the liquid. After washing hair, apply the marigold concoction as a final rinse, pouring it over the hair and catching it in a basin to re-apply several times. (Red wine may be added to the liquid to intensify the effect.) Allow hair to dry naturally in the sun, if possible. Repeat the rinsing process with subsequent shampoos until you achieve the desired shade.

 

SUNSTREAKING

This is a rich hair dressing which provides sheen and elegance to frazzled hair. It can also be used as a pressing oil for hair straightening.

Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp. chamomile tea

Mix lemon juice and tea. Using an inexpensive straw hat with lots of holes in it, pull strands of hair you would like to lighten through the holes with a crochet hook or pencil. Sit in the sun for 1 1/2 hours. You will achieve natural-looking streaking.
