I've tried it but only remembered to do it once. I have noticed that my relaxed 1b hair is a bit lighter and has more of a deep reddish tone to it.  I just wanted to share this article, it might help someone get some natural lighter tones to their hair and it is not supposed to damage your hair either.



EHOW ARTICLE

STEP 1: Combine cinnamon powder and hair conditioner in a one to one mixture. The amount you will need depends on the length of your hair; however, you should have enough to evenly coat your locks from root to tip.

STEP 2: Wet your hair and wring out the excess water. Comb your hair carefully to release any tangles which may prevent even distribution of the cinnamon and conditioner.

STEP 3: Apply the cinnamon and conditioner mixture evenly to your hair, mixing an extra batch if necessary. While you can't use too much, if you use to little your lightening will end up uneven and streaky. You can comb through your hair periodically to help move the cinnamon and conditioner evenly throughout.

STEP 4:
Gather your hair in a bun and secure it with a hair clip. Cover your head with a shower cap and leave the cinnamon and conditioner in your hair overnight. Rinse the mixture from your hair in the morning, shampooing as normal. If you would like to lighten your hair a bit more, apply the mixture again with no worry about damaging your hair.

So If I Did This And Washed It Out One Day, Could I Do It Again Immediatly For A Lighter Tone?
Also Is This Safe To Use On Relaxed Hair?

Cinnamon makes my skin burn. But it smells great! I think it's safe to use whenever if it doesn't irritate your skin.

I've done this plenty of times throughout the past year. Never any negative effects. My hair has natural brown highlights anyways, and the cinnamon has enhanced them. My hair can still look jet black sometimes (at least to me anyways!) but I never used it consistently, so maybe if you use it frequently then you might experience more drastic lightening.
