Brighten Dark Hair With This DIY Recipe

How To Add Brilliance To Brown + Black Hair

Tired of heading to the hair salon every time your locks are looking lackluster?

Instead of getting a glaze, single-process or even highlights, try this DIY rinse to make your brown hair richer, shinier and just subtly warmer, without having to spend the money at the hair salon (or having to live with a dull ‘do).

With lemon to remove product buildup, coffee to brighten and chocolate to moisturize, your hair will look brighter and richer, quickly, easily and practically for free.

DIY Hair Brightening Recipe For Brown and Dark Brown Hair

½ cup water
½ cup dark roast ground coffee
4 oz dark chocolate
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Stir darkly brewed coffee and chocolate over low heat until chocolate melts. Let it cool before adding lemon juice. After shampooing, apply mixture to towel dried hair. Cover with a shower cap and let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing out. Style as usual.
