Lemon juice! It is the safest, most effective natural ingredient you can use on your hair to dye it from black to white or blonde. Lemon juice is the best because it has acids that naturally turn your hair into a lighter shade.

Step 1: Take 2 -3 lemons. Roll them in the palm of your hand to soften it. When soft, cut the lemons into half and squeeze out as much juice you possibly can. Store them in a clean vessel.

Step 2: Now add the same amount of warm water to the lemon juice and mix it well using the help of a spoon. You can also add the juice of an orange to reduce the frizz on your hair. It is also a good conditioner to your tresses.

Step 3: Now apply the contents on your hair evenly. You can either spray the contents by using a bottle spray container or you can simply dab a piece of cotton in the juice and soak your hair in it if applying on the entire head. For highlights, use a piece of foil, until the juice dries on your hair.

Step 4: After the application is done, step into the sun. You need to sit in the sun for at least an hour or so, to make the colour visible on your hair. If after the desired time, your hair is not yet bleached or lighter in shade, re-apply the lemon juice and this time make the concentration stronger. Sit in the sun again for an hour or half to see wonders in your hair colour.
