Lightening hair with lemon juice - 03-07-07, 05:35 PM

My daughter has bought some lemon juice to put in her hair on holiday as she has been told it will lighten it.I understand this to be true but how damaging is it.Her hair is already highlighted(professionally) but she wants that real bleached blond look.

she will only get a real slight natural effect from it. Be sure to warn her that it will dry the hair out.
I overheard a stylist the other day mention to her client to use Vodka with lemon juice and she would get more lightening effects..

How light is her hair?

My hair lightens to a creamy blond with scalp bleach, then violet/silver toner makes it white blonde. If I leave it on for too long it looks like I've had a blue rinse, which is quite amusing to all my (mean!) friends....actually looks quite funky though

I use Colourfresh toner, but I know there's a different brand of toner (our salon hairdresser tried some under sections on me the other day) that gives proper Sarah Harding-style blonde, but will go real ashen grey if left on too long.

Got to be better than lemon juice!

i can remember doing this when i was a young teenager, it was always being featured in beauty tips columns in JACKIE magazine
you had to put it on and then sit in the sun to activate it. i do remember a slight change, but nothing all that noticable. one of the other things they used to recomend was conditioning your hair with egg yolk, you had to be real careful that the water wasnt too hot when you rinsed it out or you'd end up with your hair full of scrambled egg !
i bet other geeks of my era will have done the same.

Oh yes, I remember doing this as a teenager. It was the rage when I was in high school and only cost my mom a lemon which we grew in the back garden anyway.

As said above, you do have to go out into the sun light to activat it and the hotter the sun the better the result. No probs with sunshine in Africa where I grew up. Lol, brings back memories.

i used sun in when i was in my teens...horrid stuff...made it orange and snapped off. i was told that the reason it was so bad was that you sprayed it on and didn't have to rinse it out so it just kept working....dunno if thats true though. x

Me and my mates used peroxide from the chemist the sort in brown bottles from pharmacy lmao and we normally turned a nice orange colour and then a few bottles of sun in on and you would get a kind of blonde colour and hair like worzel gumage lol

You could add chamomile to your lemon juice this also has lightening properties,
it wont do anything drastic but the lemons may dry out your hair a little,
so as others have said plenty of conditioner.

If you intend going swimming afterwards be careful as chlorine could have a reaction with the lemon juice
