Default Lightening

Ok so I'm going swimming next week and I'll be in the sun for two hours my hair is naturally dirty blonde/light brown and I want it to be medium/light blonde how drying will lemon juice be and can I reverse the drying factor with a good deep conditioner afterwards?

3A/B mix with flat roots dark blonde (refusing to call it brunette I miss my blonde baby hair) lovin my curls

Have you heard about honey?
It contains natural peroxide and lightens hair too, and I understand it's less damaging than lemon.

Google for more info

Yeah I've heard about honey but since I'll be swimming I don't want sticky hair and I've even done peroxide in my hair and it didn't work

Lemon juice really all I've heard of, you could do a DT afterwards to moisturize it.

Wow! Is the lighting the same in both pictures? If it is the same, I can definitely tell a difference! What did you use, honey or lemon juice?

Yes the lighting is the same it's my room light and camera flash. I used lemon juice. It made my hair smell like lemonade
