Lemon juice vs. highlights??

I'm wondering if lemon juice diluted in water and a little time in the sun would be less damaging than highlights. I used to get my highlights done at the salon all the time, but the last time I got them they F-R-I-E-D my curls!

Could this be a better (and cheaper) alternative? Any thoughts or experience?

TIA for any responses!!
I won't get conventional highlights again because they dried out my hair terribly.

With that said, I also won't stay in the sun without a hat anymore because that too dried out my hair terribly.

I think it's a lose-lose situation, for me at least.

Here's what I found doing a search for "lemon" on the hair coloring forum, ignoring the ones using it as an activator of sorts for henna.

Lemon Juice Highlighting?

Natural Hair Lighteners?

Thanks for the links! What do you do to lighten/highlight your hair? Or have you given up because of the damage it causes?
Thanks again!

Once burned, twice shy, so I no longer do anything permanent to my hair. I'm ready to try semi-perm again though.
