Many woman fancy that their hair attains natural highlights from being in the sun. This actually occurs because the sun has opened up and damaged the strands of hair. Lemon juice contains citric acid, which chemically reacts with the sun and speeds up this hair damage.

The effect is lighter, bleached hair. The damage done is similar to what highlights at a salon do. You might as well save the hundreds of dollars and achieve highlights the natural way.
