If you put lemon juice in your hair, does it really make it lighter? & does it affect your hair in a negative way also?

It does work. And no it doesn't have any affect on your hair. Just wash it out normally an your hair should be fine. If you want to go really blonde soak your hair in lemon juice that comes in big bottles and lie down in your backyard under the sun. I do this every summer with my cousins. and we are all girls. but it works a lot on my hair because I have dark blonde hair.

It does but you have to do it repeatedly & go in the sun. The effects aren't very dramatic, more subtle. It does damage your hair though. It really strips your hair out.
