How can you lighten your hair?

you could use lemon juice and sunlight as a natural way to lighten it. but it is also very damaging. so is beach filled hair dyes. when I personally chose to lighten my black hair, I used a mixture of hydrogen pro oxide (H2O2) and a very nourishing, rich, creamy conditioner. I found that the more pro oxide made lighter hair. once you mix the two, you can apply it to hair in the same process you would regular dye, and let it sit for however long you want, of course the longer it stays in the hair, the lighter your hair will become. after I washed out the mixture, my hair was still extreamly soft and very much alive.
