Lightening hair with lemon juice?

Has anyone actually SUCCESSFULLY lightened their hair with lemon juice? Summer’s here (finaaally) and I love staying out in the sun, and was wondering if it would be worth the trouble of spraying some lemon juice onto my hair. I already have blonde hair, but just wanna lighten up some chunks. What do you guys think?

@lynda87 yes, it really really does work, but only if you already have light hair! What I do is I dampen my hair and then spray lemon juice mixed with water (usually half and half) into my strands. Depending on what look you’re going for (highlight chunks, small streaks, or just overall lightening), spray onto hair and lay back and enjoy the sun.

Don’t forget to slather yourself in sunscreen of course :sunny:
