I want my hair lighter?

I have dark brown hair, and lately, its looked dull and gray. In July, I did the whole 'lemon juice' thing. It kind of worked; it turned strips of my hair lighter. My mom also said she doesn't want to pay for the chemicals to get my hair lighter. I'm not looking to dye my hair; just to give it a little color boost. :)

My hair as of now is the "very dark brown" on this chart. Any way I can get it to around " Medium Chestnut"?

Based on the chart it looks like you have a very nice hair color! You're lucky :D If you can, try to visit the beach as much as possible before school starts. I do and my 'Medium brown with dark chocolate base' has gotten many streaks since. (Note: My hair actually gets pretty reddish during summer, but I'm not sure if yours will come out blonder.)

I don't know of anything... but did you try the lemon juice thing multiple times? Because I looked it up and it said you would have to do it once a week for few weeks to get noticeable results. So maybe if you did it a few times it would work better

I used lemon juice and it worked pretty well even though I only used it like twice, but do this: spray pure and fresh lemon juice (don't dilute it) very generously and make sure it's all over your hair then just lay in the sun for a while
