Lemon juice to highlight hair?

Has anyone tried using lemon juice to lighten their hair? I recently went to a salon and got highlights... though my hair is blonder, I'm still not satisfied enough with the highlights I got and would like to go even blonder. Would mixing some peroxide and lemonjuice lighten my hair?

I'm not sure why you'd use lemon juice if you're going to go the hydrogen (or benzoyl!) peroxide route--that stuff will lighten it quite a bit on its own, though not in a good way. I have hair that is I think only slightly naturally darker than yours, Mandy, and it looked more orange than blond when I used peroxide to streak it. Ick. But yes, lemon juice + sitting in the sun will lighten your hair, though not nearly as much as peroxide. You might fork up the money for a DIY highlighting kit from the drugstore if you want a better shot of doing it right without paying salon prices.
