Putting highlights in your hair can brighten both your mood and your style but having it done at a salon can be expensive, so it's not always an affordable thing to do. There is a solution, though. You can get soft highlights in your hair and not have to go any further than your kitchen.

Things You'll Need

  • Lemons or pure lemon juice
  • Knife
  • Bowl
  • Spray bottle
  • Comb or hairbrush
  • Sunlight

Cut a few lemons and squeeze out the juice into a bowl. If you don't have lemons, you can also use pure lemon juice. Two or three lemons or about a cup of lemon juice will be plenty.

Mix the lemon juice with water. Use about one-third as much water as you have lemon juice (so for a cup of lemon juice, use a third of a cup of water).

Pour the lemon juice and water mixture into a plastic spray bottle.

Spray the mixture onto your hair for an all-over lightening. For streaks, spray it onto a comb or hair brush and brush it through your hair.

Go outside and enjoy the sun. The longer you are out, the lighter your hair will get.

Tips & Warnings

  • Apply the spray to slightly dirty hair so the natural oils will protect your hair from the dryness that the lemon juice can cause.
  • This works best on "dirty blond" or light brown hair. Darker shades of hair may get more of an auburn or red tint.
