      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

      ½ 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?
