Brighten Blond Hair at Home Using Just 3 Ingredients

Dolly Parton once said, "I'm not offended by all the dumb-blonde jokes, because I know I'm not dumb. . . . And I also know that I'm not blond." Like Dolly, anyone who has ever ventured over to the blond (or blonder) side knows that the line between beautiful and brassy is easily crossed. Therefore, it takes a lot of TLC and consistency to ensure you maintain your pale-color status.

There's a DIY trick that lightens up your mane without a trip to the salon, which is great if you don't have $200 to spare on fresh highlights. (Hello, Los Angeles!) It requires only three ingredients — one of them a bit on the odd side — but it makes a great lightening and brightening mask.

Give it a go next time you're feeling a bit brassy. Quick note: You can leave the potato in the mask or strain the mixture to remove them. Your call.
