RESULTS ON LIGHTING MY HAIR WITH CINNAMON...



As salaamu alaikum & Hello, ladies

About a month ago I did a post on homemade organic ways to add color to our hair ( see side bar titled homemade organic hairdyes + more).  So, I applied the cinnamon recipe to my hair.  I must say I like the results.  It gave my hair a very soft brownish color.... very pretty.

It is very important to rinse ALL of the cinnamon out of your hair.  It took me a few shampoo's with a little, tiny bit left in there that came out the next day once wetting my hair.  But, over all I like the results.  It didn't leave my hair dry at all.  If you want it to get lighter , and lighter you must do a few applications.  So, would I do this again.... I sure would.  In, fact I plan to do so in the next week or so.

This time I think I will mix 4 tablespoons of cinnamon mixed with 8 oz of plain yogurt. I will keep you ladies posted on how the second try comes out. Until next time........

                                                                                                 ENJOY!!!

Btw, I forgot to ask what your actual hair color is. Mine is naturally pretty dark outside of the slight henna glow it has from several applications of it. So I'm really curious as to what type of change, if any, I'll experience.

@ CHOCOLATE ORCHID, My hair is naturally like a med brown , I guess you could say. But, the more times you do the process its said you will see better results. Right now there is a slight change ( this was my very first go at it) so I plan to redo it again in a week or so. You may have to do it a few times until you reach a desired color. Hope this helps (smiles) take care

As salaamu alaikum, (gasp)oooo girl how did I miss this post lol?! Zainab do you think this method will work for my hair? I had no idea to use cinnamon in this way (Awesome!).

@ slipstitches, walaikum salaam
lol.... Na'am , I truly believe it will. Especially if your hair is still with its natural color.

It may take a short while to remove it all. And you make have to do a few applications, but overall I think it will surely work, and I actually like my very first results . I plan to do it again. if you to it, keep me posted on your results, insha Allaah.

Take care, thanks so much for stopping by ! ( smiles & hugs)
