Using Lemon Juice to Fix Bad Dye Results

Will Using lemon juice on my hair change it back to the original colour? I bleached my brown hair to blonde, it was a little uneven so I used an ash blonde dye and it turned my hair grey. Now I was wondering if I use the lemon juice to try and make it blonde will it work?

Here's a link about a hair color remover.

Lemon juice will ruin your hair right now, because hairs that are bleached out to a blonde, or lifted then colored to blonde, have been removed of your darker color pigments, and then by adding another color which was laid down again when you added another color to try and correct it- sounds like where you are.

To put lemon juice on your hair now, which is extremely acidic,
will damage and thin each strand of hair to where they'll break
off at their weakest points.

I've had so many different experiences with my hair, I can tell you something that a hair dresser did to my hair once, which worked the best of any time that my hair color was messed up or not what I wanted.

I had over processed my hair, (trying different colors), and it was a mess as far as the condition of it goes-extremely fragile.

She put a cap on me, and pulled hairs though it to only lighten those selected strands, which actually blended my entire head of hair out, which was amazing, and the botched up color that I had on it, wasn't even noticeable, at all, because of all the highlights blending it so nicely together.

I don't know if you can use a highlight cap or not, or find someone to do that, but to avoid a total head of hair breakage, I don't believe you want to put any kind of product that has peroxide or acidic lemon on it right now for your entire head.

Condition your hair well, and leave in the conditioner if you can.
If you're in a hurry, (which I was) as I couldn't stay in hiding until my hair was in great condition, so the "highlighting" of strands seriously worked for me, and after that, I had to just be very delicate with my hair.

No hot irons, no hair dryer, just gentle care.

I've also been in a hurry *another experience* to have my hair color corrected to the point that it did all break off from applying "whole head applications of color", which is when I learned how fragile our hair really is.

What if I waited a few weeks for my hair to repair before applying the lemon juice? Or will it still dramatically damage it?

It will not. It will dry your hair out.

What if I were to allow my hair to repair for a few weeks and then added the lemon juice?

Or do you think it will still dramatically dry my hair out and damage it?
Also, my hair is very very thin and always have been- bleaching it was a nightmare and I practically lost half of it, will lemon juice do the same?

No, it will not. It will just make whatever you have lighter.
