Bleach it Gently
If you want to lighten your hair, you'll need peroxide, even if your hair isn't dark. Some people still believe lemon juice and sun exposure is a healthier approach, but the truth is that can be just as hard on yor hair in the long run. Bottom line: if you prefer a peroxide-free process, stick with your natural shade or go darker and try a semipermanent dye to enhance your color.
