when life gives you lemons, lighten your hair!

Usually about this time of year I go to the salon and get my hair all pretty and highlighted. But to be honest with you, I’m really not wanting to spend $115 on my hair right now, but I still want it lightened. Yes, I want my cake and to be able to eat it too. Who am I kidding… I want to devour it!


I remembered as a kid, before I was allowed to get my hair chemically highlighted, I did it the old school way. Okay, maybe not old school, but ‘natural’ way. And it always worked! So while the rest of my family had brunette hair, I had lovely golden locks. I guess it helped that my hair was lighter than everyone else's hair to begin with. But they were still lovely and golden :)


All you need is your hair, some fresh squeezed lemon juice and plenty of sunshine!


You squeeze as much juice as you can out of a few lemons and apply the juice all over dry hair. Then you let it go to work. It will still work even if you don’t go out in the sun, it just speeds up the process a little. I like to add it to my hair when I know I am going to be outside for an extended period of time.

So there you have it. The all natural way to get your very own lovely golden locks.

Happy Highlighting Y’all!
