DIY All Natural Highlights!

I was visiting Beautylish this week and came across some truly interesting information I wanted to share with you. This is the time of year many of us play with lightening our hair. There are many reasons why we don't and for some of us it is because we don't want the chemicals on our hair. Well did you know there were a few things you may have around the house that will give you those highlights you wa

Celebrity colorist Michael Canale offers some great solutions for natural highlights that he has used on some of his celeb clients such as Jennifer Aniston.

Vodka Spritzer

2 parts seltzer
1 part vodka

"Vodka has a clear blue tone to it, so it lightens hair without it going orange. You can also clean out red brassy tones with this mixture," says Michael.

Rum Fizz

2 parts seltzer
1 part rum
"This is how models in Brazil get caramel tones in their hair. They spray a little in their hair and go out in the sun without the hair turning brassy," says Michael.

Sunny Side Up Highlights

Egg yolk, beaten

"Straight egg yolk has the ability to lighten hair because of the natural acids in the yolks. This is what they do in Spain. It gets gooey and sticky though, so you only want to leave it in your hair for an hour," Michael says. "If you apply this with foil or plastic, it's a natural, at-home highlight." Do not sit out in the sun with this mixture, unless you're okay with having scrambled eggs in your hair!

I think I may be trying one of these techniques on my hair soon!
