Are you suffering from hair loss because of hair dyes or bleaches? Our first recommendation is that you stop dying your hair.

The chemicals that are used in commercial dyes and bleaches, such as peroxide, weaken your scalp and roots. 

We recommend that you look for alternatives to change the color of your hair. If you want to lighten it, use the following mask to help with hair growth.

Ingredients

  • The juice from 10 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon of carrot oil (5 g)
  • 1/2 cup of chamomile tea (100 ml)

Preparation

  • Mix the ingredients and put them in a spray bottle.
  • Each day, before showering, shake the spray bottle and apply the solution to your hair.
  • Let sit for 15 minutes and then wash it normally.

If you are looking to darken your hair, change the lemon juice for a tablespoon of activated charcoal and the chamomile for black tea.
