    You can find lightening sprays..I suppose at somewhere like boots/superdrug (or whatever the local pharmacy chain thing is). I have one, but its not a brand you get overseas..they work pretty well, people noticed it was lighter. You just spray it on then let your hair dry..do it maybe a few days in a row.

    Or i guess, the lemon juice thing. Somebody will mention it..apparently it works, though I suspect it damages your hair pretty badly.

    Permanently? Only bleach will do the trick well. However temporarily these shampoos can make a little difference, often they are expensive though. I used to spend £10 buying lightening shampoo and conditioner I believe it was John Freida at around £5 per product. I now just use a really good conditioner as being blonde is more damaging, and my hair is not any less blonde, bit of a rip off I feel.

    Oh, there's one you spray in your hair which makes it lighter by sunlight and it work really well, giving it beachy blonde highlights. I can't remember the name, but you buy it at a pharmacy.

    You can get sun-in from some Boots stores and I've even seen in a couple of really large supermarkets. I hear its really not great though.

    Probably depends on your hair. The John Frieda really works well on mine, so much lighter, in fact the front bits are almost a white blonde sometimes. I have to rotate the products though. They work for a bottle or so and then my hair seems to get used to them so I switch to a different brand. The Pantene works well for me as does Treseme and Boots Natural Collection shampoo.

    yeah, my hair's really dark blonde now, used to be almost white. Doubt it'll have much effect anymore
