When life gives you lemons... Lighten your hair!

Hi everyone!
So I had heard about how you could lighten your hair with lemons and yesterday I decided to give it a shot!

      You will need:
  • Lemons
  • Juicer
  • Water
  • Bowl
  • Sunshine
  • Towel
 Now, here's what you do:
Firstly, you need to decide how many lemons you will need to use
for short hair, 1-2 lemons
for medium hair, 2-3 lemons
for long hair 3-4 lemons

Next, you juice your lemons

Remove any seeds/bits and pour the juice into a bowl then add some water until there is enough of the mixture to cover your hair (I used 4 tablespoons) Be careful not to dilute it too much or else the mixture won't be strong enough to lighten your hair!

After you have done that, pour the mixture over your hair covering from root to tip. I went outside for this step and I wore a towel around my shoulders.

Then all you have to do if sit out in the sun until your hair is dry! When it does dry completely I washed my hair and let it dry naturally! Easy Peasy!

Then all you have to do is enjoy your new lightened hair :)

So as you can see, there is a noticible difference! I'm really happy with the results and it is supposed to last for a little more than a month.

Hope you enjoyed,

Until next time...

*This method mightn't work on everyone, but it's worth a try! You would get better results if you have blonde/light brown hair.*
