  1. Hi, I found this tip for blonde highlights in the Australian TV Week magazine a few years ago and it works very well.

    It is a tip used by Tori Spelling of (90210) fame and daughter of Aaron Spelling, that wonderful Hollywood Producer of so many great TV shows.

    Use 1 tablespoon lemon juice to 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide. Mix together and put onto damp hair. Spend a minimum of twenty minutes in the sun.

    It covers the grey in my hair, adds shine and of course blonde highlights.

    I use a small squeeze bottle with a medium size pinhole in the top which has a screw top lid for sealing. In this way I can make up a decent amount in the bottle and store it in the refrigerator afterwards.

    Means no waste or suddenly having to make more because you didn’t quite make up enough mixture.

    And… it’s ready for use anytime as well as being great for touch ups.

  2. Your website provided us with valuable info to work on. You’ve done a formidable job and our whole community will be grateful to you.

  3. I didn’t know that you “DIY” such a thing! I will definitely be trying this out. Salon hair color can be so expensive and frankly, it isn’t necessary. Thanks for sharing!

  4. will this mixture of blonde hair dye (lemon juice and chamomile tea) add texture and volume like store bought hair dyes? Ty
