i don't want to dye it or put highlights. I've heard olive oil and going out into the sun helps to get it a little lighter. OR putting lemon juice in your hair and going out into the sun? does that help?
any other tips?
thanks for your help!

It use to work so well for me and I have light brown hair- dirty blond also (the reason I say "use to" is because I don't do it anymore). Take some and pour it into a squirt bottle, and then dilute it with a LITTLE bit of water, so its not entirely pure acid you're squirting on you hair lol Then before you go out in the sun on a sunny day, squirt some throughout your hair (dont forget the roots). If you only diluted it a little bit, then you shouldn't need a lot.
After a few days of doing this in the summer, I had some nice blond streaks in my hair, especially the front strands. AND it looked natural. The downside of the lemon juice is that it kinda made my scalp itchy, so after a day of it I would deff rinse my hair. Also, it may cause some dryness of your hair.
If lemon juice doesn't work for ya, I've heard some Green Tea works that same, without the damage and dryness. One thing I do not recommend is Sun-in: it hardly lightened my hair, and rather gave it a reddish tone.0
