    Honey lightening treatments have been reported to work well to reduce/eliminate brassiness and not cause it.

    I am very glad to hear that your fear was not realized.

    I have the tomato sauce mix on my hair right now (just the part that was hennaed, not the new growth) and I'm hoping for good results Unfortunately, it stinks...the smell of tomato sauce is too acidic for me, and combined with olive oil and honey? Eww.
    I like all three things, but not together! (Unless they lighten my hair...)

    I look forward to reading your results.

    If you like the smell of coconut - you could try the honey coconut cream recipe next.

    You could if you like add a bit of EVOO to that - just make sure that there is enough moisture in the mix to dilute the honey.

    The tomato recipe has 3 peroxide containing ingredients - honey, tomatoes and EVOO.

    The coconut cream recipe - only 2.

    None of the honey lightening recipes have been reported to cause hair damage even after months of use for long periods of time on the hair.

    I just noticed the 5 star rating for this thread - thank you so much to whoever voted.

    I saved many links from the original Honey threads.

    Here is an amusing article that confirms tomatoes contain hydrogen peroxide and surprise - so does coffee.

    kathrynrose reported that an experiment using a thick coffee paste on her hair to stain it darker a good while back - actually lightened her hair colour and was drying.

    Enjoy

    One note on coffee as a rinse or treatment.

    I have read on the boards that coffee rinses can be drying - if you want to use it as a peroxide boost in a honey lightening treatment - I recommend not using too much.

    A friend of mine tried a coffee rinse at my suggestion to cover grey - I did not realize it could be drying - it was and did not stain her grey at all. Ouch - that was in my pre researching in depth days.

    I think coffee can stain hair somewhat - it would depend on how it was used and maybe the coffee - freshly ground beans as opposed to instant? - like certain tomato products reported to help lighten in a honey treatment but adding colour at the same time - so I recommend strand testing first.

    Plants can be tricky in terms of staining hair.

    Catnip did not stain much on mohair in a test here on the boards but works on my hair and has been reported to work for others - and my older catnip and certain bulk catnip did not not stain as much as the fresher pet store catnip I use now.

    Onion skins stain wool and egg shells beautifully but have been reported not to stain hair well.

    I had saved Viviane's post from the old Honey thread on using honey as a leave-in.

    "Besides, if you dampen your hair out a bit and then add a pearl size amount of honey to your palms, rub vigorously and then slide your palms to hair and comb, it&#180;s not sticky at all. It just keeps it all in place. Sticky happens with too much of the good stuff."

    sandrak's post from the old Honey thread on tomato products. NOTE: The link to that post no longer works.

    "When I was doing the honey treatments my experience with tomato was this: When I added tomato sauce, I didn't get much red. When I used tomato paste, I got lots of red. I noticed that when I mixed all the ingredients together it looked really red, but I used it anyway. I probably didn't add enough water. So, if I decide to do the honey treatments again I will use tomato sauce."

    Sounds very interesting.
    I think will ad that tomato-mix to my cassia-herb-treatment. Hopefully it wont do anything with my honeyblond hair ?! What do you think?
    I am still unsure what to take: canned tomatos or paste or what...pasta sauce sounds more ateable
    comment of my bfto that tomato-recipe: ohhhh add some spices and salt and then you have a lovely sauce
