When I was a young teen and could not afford to do highlights, I would rub lemon juice into my brown hair and sit in the sun for hours. It gave it vaguely red highlights and I was happy. There was no formula....used real lemons, squeezed them on a hand squeezer, and poured it onto my head. Sat in the sun (with baby oil on my skin--if you can imagine--no chance of me doing that today--yikes!) Real lemons were as "organic" as it got back then.

Today just be careful to use a product that is all lemon and no sugar or such added, especially if you are going to be outside in the sun as you don't want bees attacking.

I miss those day!! Hope it works as well for you as you want. By the way, it never "lightened" my hair....in my case, it gave me nice red highlights.

You spray or rub the lemon juice over the parts of your hair that you want lightened. Either sit out in the sun or sit under a dryer for an hour or so. It will lighten your hair a few shades. It can be drying,however

either 30 minutes under the sun or an hour under a dryer should do it. Make sure you rinse well with shampoo with a more alkaline pH to neutralise the acid so that it does not continue damaging your hair (though lemon is one of the safer acids to use in hair)

you can also try hydrogen peroxide though that is a more drastic effect

Hi,

I would suggest diluting the lemon juice, with distilled water, to avoid red highlights. I used to do this a lot ;)
