Trendy Tuesday - Natural Highlights

I L-O-V-E laying out in the sun. Unhealthy, I know. But you only live once :)

Only once in my entire life have I ever had my hair highlighted from a professional. Never used a box. Never went back to the hair salon. My hair has always stayed its natural color, with a little help from some lemon juice and the sunrays and chlorine in the summer.



I'm curious to see if there are any other ways to enhance natural highlights in hair over the summer. Here are a few ways I've heard you can do it:

Lemon Juice: Spray on to wet hair and brush through before going out into the sun.



There are also lots of John Frieda Beach Blonde products that are amazing...




An egg bath: Eggs help moisturize hair because they contain lecithin. Simply beat an egg, apply it to your hair when dry and then cover with a plastic bag. Allow the egg to sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing in cool water.

What tricks have you tried? What works best for your hair?

Lemon juice works best, but I dilute it in water and put it in a spray bottle :)

I always tried the lemon juice thing, but it never worked well for me because my hair is so dark.

I used sun-in a lot when I was in middle school. I have never tried the egg thing. I might have to test it out!

I'm on Team Lemon Juice. I did it just like Roxane. Not as bright as real highlights, but if you are patient, you'll get some results.

I actually have mixed 2 packets of Kool Aid lemonade with shampoo, put on dry hair, wrap with clear rap and leave on your head for 30 minutes. then rinse and drench with conditioner. this strips your hair of build up and leaves a nice shine.
