Juice Lemons

  • Cut the lemons in half, and use a juicer or your fingers to squeeze their juice into a bowl.
  • Make sure to strain the seeds, so they don’t clog your spray bottle.
  • Avoid using bottled lemon juice. It contains preservatives that aren’t good for your hair.
Add Water to the Bowl
  • Dilute the lemon juice by adding an equal amount of water. For example, if you have half a cup of juice, add half a cup of water.
Pour the mixture into a spray bottle
  • If you’re using an old spray bottle, make sure it is thoroughly washed before you pour in the lemon juice. Avoid using a bottle that contained toxic chemicals.
  • Shake the lemon juice mixture well.
Spray your hair with the lemon mixture
  • Concentrate on the parts you want to lighten. You can coat your hair all over or focus on a few strands.
  • If you want a more precise application, dip a cotton ball in the lemon juice mixture and rub it on the strands of hair you wish to highlight.
  • The more lemon juice you apply to your hair, the lighter it will get.
Sit in the sun to let it react with the lemon juice
  • Allow the sun to dry the mixture in your hair for about 30 minutes. As your hair dries, it will begin to lighten.
  • The longer you stay in the sun, the lighter your hair will get. However, be aware that bleaching your hair with lemon juice can dry out and damage your hair.
Wash and condition your hair
  • Thoroughly rinse the lemon juice mixture from your hair, then wash and condition it with moisturising products.
  • When your hair is dry, you’ll see the highlights.
