I've been looking up how to lighten hair but pretty much the only results that come up are how to do it naturally and to do it with honey. I'm obviously not going to use honey and I honestly don't care if it's done naturally or not. Does anyone know how to lighten hair without full on bleaching+dye?

Lemon juice + sunlight?

There isn't much sunlight here during this part of the year which is why the product+sunlight method isn't going to work right now.

Blonde here: lemon and sunlight work - if you have access to those!

i use naturitint to color my hair. It is NOT bleach, but hair color. Lots of 'natural' ingredients. Cruelty free. My hair has never looked better since i switched to this from some other (non vegan) chemicals in a box

you can buy at Whole Foods or other health stores. You can also buy on Amazon

I'm looking at straight up hydrogen peroxide but I straighten my hair with a hair iron and am afraid it's going to instantly fry my hair off.

I don't think the hair color would work for me because I'm lightening instead of dying.

*puts on hairdresser hat*

The only way to lighten hair is by removing pigment, either via a traditional lightener, or a diy method like lemon juice or peroxide. Any of these methods are going to cause some level of damage because you're opening the hair's cuticle and literally removing those pigment molecules that make up part of the hair shaft.

That said, what I would do is go with a traditional lightener and go to a salon that uses Olaplex when they do the lightening process which will both prevent a lot of damage and repair damage as well. I've seen Olaplex used in vegan salons and in my correspondence with them I'm comfortable recommending them as both cruelty free and vegan.

Along with Olaplex you'll want to be sure your lightener is cruelty free and vegan, I know that all of the Paul Mitchell lighteners as well as the full lines from Framesi, and Organic Color Systems are both CF and vegan, if you go the Paul Mitchell route and you need to tone after lightening be sure they use either the PM Shines or the Flash Finish toners because their regular color line and the Shines XG both contain beeswax.

Rusk is cruelty free but I'm not sure what in their line is or is not vegan. Kenra is cruelty free as well, but have been incredibly useless whenever I've contacted them looking for a vegan list.

If you decide to lighten traditionally at home, you can't get Olaplex because that's professional only, but if you coat your hair with coconut oil first it can help prevent at least some of the moisture stripping lightening causes, and the Manic Panic bleach kits are cf and vegan.

Honestly though, I'm telling you, Olaplex is amazing stuff.
