How to make hair lighter?

My hair is brown right now and I want it to be a few shades lighter. How can I do this with household materials without damaging it?

Ideally I want my hair to be a light blonde color.

    If your hair is light brown, use this spray: http://m.drugstore.com/john-frieda-sheer-blonde-go...

    If your hair is medium brown or darker, the spray won't work.

    Also try putting lemon juice in your hair and sitting out in the sun. A few times after doing that and your hair will be visibly blonder.

    Another thing that works is using this shampoo. (yeah, it looks super girly, but it works). http://m.ulta.com/mt/www.ulta.com//ulta/browse/pro...

    I used this a few years ago and it turned my brown hair to a dark blonde, it would've worked more if I sat in the sun.

    The main things that make hair blonder: sun and lemons.

    Source(s): My mom used to make my hair super blonde during the summer when I was little. I went from a caramel color to white by the end of the summer.

    Well my hair was dark brown. My mom told me to spay it with hydrogen peroxide. It got really light after a month. Spray it everyday it works really good and leaves it super soft.

    Put lemon juice in your hair and sit in the sun for an hour or more(more the better), then rinse it out. It sgould be lighter then. :)
