Hi, I'm Amelia and I'm going to talk to you about highlighting your hair with lemon juice. Lemon juice is an acid so when you apply it to the hair, you want to make sure your hair is dry, and you're going to want to then spend time in the sun or apply some sort of heat to it. And you're not going to get a lot of lightness out of the hair. I only recommend using lemon juice if you have extremely fine, thin hair, and it's very light naturally. In other words, you have to be almost blonde or what's called dirty blonde, dishwater, mousy brown, in that area. And you're not going to get really light, like you would never get this light with highlighting with lemon juice. If you're wanting to get this light you're going to want to use a lightener and I recommend going to a salon to do that. Lemon juice is just going to add a little bit of sparkle to the hair, it's going to make you smell really nice and citrusy, but it's really not going to do a whole lot with highlighting the hair. So again, if you have my color it won't work. If you've got hair that's fairly light to begin with and it's very fine and one way to tell if your hair is very fine, you probably know, but one way to tell is it just - when you pick up the strand, it's - this is fairly thick to medium, this hair. So a fine strand is you're not really going to be able to see. It's going to be fairly small - it's going to be hard to see when you hold it up, and that's a fine strand of hair. And you can lightly spray it on but you're going to need heat. So spend some time at the beach, use a little bit of lemon juice and see how light you can get with it.
