Default Lemon Juice to Lighten Hair?

I know that lemon juice can lighten hair, but would it be damaging to do? I woke up this morning and just hated the color of my hair, I'm medium-dark blonde and want to go a bit lighter.

Yes, it would be. It might take a while to show wear, but it is processing your hair after all, and lifting color from your hair (as opposed to only depositing, which is gentler).

It has the potential to dry out your hair. Keep in mind it's an acid and should be treated carefully.

Hey aaa00a!
I have a very dry hair so I don't even think about to put lemon juice on my hair,however,I have very good results with honey. It's a humectant,my hair loves it,and because I grow out my natural hair colour,I need to be a bit lighter. Well,in 2 months (with 2 times a week application plus a bit of leave in),the honey made light brown from my dyed black hair. It's amazing,and sooo moisturizing also.
I definitely suggest to give it a go!
