MYTH: Lemon Lightens Your Hair

October 29, 2009

Lemon slices

YES! …. well, minimally lighten your hair. You will probably see more results with finer hair. Very similar to the once famous ‘SUN IN’  minus the chemicals. You will have best results with some UV Rays action. Just keep in mind, lemon will have just minimal results and best on fine hair! Also, the acids in lemon will for sure dry up your hair so you should do a conditioning treatment after.

My recommendations: um wouldn’t try it, even though I thought I was cool trying to use Sun In on my pitch black hair.

So I played costume dress up with my son. I decided to paint his face like a skeleton (don’t worry the paints are very safe) He didn’t know what I was doing and had no idea his face was painted. Watch the video for his reaction. Hilarious!

“All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible.” T.E.Lawrence
