Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

The first and one that most people have heard of is lemon juice. The acid in the lemon juice will bleach the pigment in the hair making it lighter. You will need the assistance of the sun as well. Do not use lemon from concentrate. It has preservatives and will not work nearly as well. Always squeeze your own lemon. Simply squeeze a fresh lemon in water and spritz on in the sun. Lemon is NOT good for your hair and will more than likely cause split ends and dry our your hair.

Do not use oil in your hair either, it does the same thing as lemon. Oil will make your natural oil stop producing and strip the good oil and leave you hair that is even dryer than what you started with. Use a natural shampoo with out preservatives for damaged hair and scalp.


Honey is not just for desert these days. The natural sweetener that packs a awesome sweet sensation to the taste buds is also used to lighten hair. Honey can make sauces thicker while enhancing flavor and when mixed with water or lemon it will lighten your hair. Honey actually has peroxide in it, but only in small doses.

Expect to have it on your hair for several hours at a time and you will need to do it over several days. Use a shower cap to stop the honey from running onto your clothes. Make sure you only mix a small amount of water or lemon, you do not want it to runny.

Shampoo your hair and leave it damp for an easy application.
