If there’s one thing I hate (and I mean ABSOLUTELY hate), it’s a braggart. Let’s be clear here, folks: I don’t care what
your father/mother does for a living, I don’t care how adorable your boyfriend is, I don’t care how indispensible you are at your job, I don’t care what you scored on your SATs or whether you were hand-picked for your Little League swim team. I just don’t care.
Now, if there’s one thing I love (and I mean ABSOLUTELY love), it’s my hair. It’s always been my overall favorite feature. I love how it shines, I love how it bounces, I love how soft it is, and I love how it goes curly and straight. I just love it. (Except when I’m trying to go No Poo and have a head like a wire-haired terrier…other than that, I just love it!)
And what’s my favorite feature about my favorite feature? It’s blonde! So when I noticed that my beautifully brilliant blonde tresses were beginning to fade and darken and brown, I knew what I had to do: I had to take action! And right away! What would a blonde bombshell like MNM ever do as a brunette?? I’ve never heard of anything so terrible! Blonde hair is just so perfect and pretty, don’t you think? (Oh – no offense, by the way, to any of you brunettes or redheads out there, of course! It’s just that my hair is slightly…how do we say…better!)
Several weeks ago, while I was at the beach for seven days, I attempted a lightening treatment on my dirty-blonde hair:
- Lemon juice
Simple as that! All I did was spray my hair with lemon juice every morning before going out in the sun. Then I’d put it up, and let the citrus work its magic. My hair doesn’t look dramatically different, but it did lighten up. However, my hair naturally lightens in the sun, so it is somewhat difficult to tell how much the lemon juice contributed. I would be interested to see how this method works on brunette hair; and I’m sure there are many brunettes who have tried it…because, really, isn’t everyone just aspiring to have hair like mine?
I hope all that came out right…After all, if there’s one thing I hate, it’s a braggart.
