      Homemade Hair Highlights

      Highlights for Brunettes

      1 potato, unpeeled

      Cook an unpeeled potato in boiling water. Cool slightly. Dip a pastry brush in the water, cover and saturate hair, being careful not to get any on skin. Leave on hair for 20 minutes then rinse out.
      Highlights for Blondes

      cup chamomile tea

      Steep chamomile tea in one quart of boiling water . Strain and cool slightly. Shampoo hair until oil free, then rinse with the tea infusion.

        Does this really work? Do you just put streaks like in a highlighting kit or does it lighten all of your hair?
