    It will work, but you need to use it *a lot*, repeatedly, over and over and over, to get noticeably light results. If you have dark hair to begin with, about the best you can hope for is an orange-ish color. Plus, it really fries your hair - the acid in the lemon juice breaks down the cuticle (the outer, protective layer of each individual hair strand) - and leaves your hair brittle and dull . If you want lighter hair, I think ultimately bleaching is better (by a beautician, not using the Chlorox from the laundry!) because even though it's much stronger, it's on there for a shorter period of time and doesn't do nearly the damage to your hair.

    By the looks of your mini you must have brown hair, SOOOO...Only if you want orange hair. Sun- In is also another one to use if you want orange hair. You really need to go to your hair stylist and ask her/him what to do. They have stuff that is strong enough to use to give you highlights or tips.

    it works best if you have dirty blond hair - it definitely works and brightens the tones. but the best thing for light brown hair is Sun-In. Try it!
