well hmm m not so sure but

1. Make sure that your hair has recently been washed and is free of knots or tangles. You should be able to pull a comb through your hair with no trouble.

2. Find a new spray bottle. You want to make sure the bottle is as clean as possible (a brand new bottle is the best!) because you don't know how the previous chemical's residue will react with the Hydrogen Peroxide, and this isn't chemistry class.

3. Fill the bottle with at least 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. Spray the parts of your hair you want lighter. If you want all of your hair lighter, spray thoroughly.

4. If you are looking only to bring out your natural highlights, pour some of the Hydrogen Peroxide on a cotton ball and rub the cotton ball in one direction on the pieces of your hair that you would like lighter.

5. Most people want to leave the Hydrogen Peroxide in their hair for about 30 minutes before rinsing, but depending on how dark your hair is, how light you want it, and how much irritation the chemical may cause, you will want to experiment and play around with it. When you are comfortable with the color, go rinse your hair with cool water.

6. The cool water will add shine and help strengthen your hair. Since the Peroxide isn't the healthiest thing in the world, you will probably want to add a deep conditioner to your hair. Be sure to massage your scalp as the chemical might have dried out or irritated it. Again, rinse with cool water.

7. Don't expect immediate results. Your hair will become much lighter if you repeat this process in smaller doses ever day for a week than if you use a whole bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide on your hair one night.

8. Good luck- and remember that even if your hair doesn't come out the way you'd hope it would, you can always dye your hair back or add a colored rinse to your hair to tone down the white. Have fun!

[edit] Tips

* If your hair is already a light color or is very porous, this method of bleaching will be more effective in lightening your hair. It will still work on people with black or dark hair, but it might take a little while longer.

* If your hair is red or has a reddish tone, your peroxided hair might seem a bit more orange at first. Keep continuing the treatment and your hair should seem blonder.

* A quality deep conditioner is a must whether you are bleaching your hair at home or professionally. It is a rather expensive product, but if you can find Tigi's S-Factor "Serious Conditioner" with Sunflower Oil, it works wonders. Make sure you massage your conditioner into your scalp (it wont make your hair greasy if you rinse well).

* To make your hair lighten even faster, spend a few hours out in the sunlight after applying the Hydrogen Peroxide.

* Since hydrogen peroxide can leave your hair with an orange or brassy tone, try washing your hair with John Frieda Color Renew shampoo and conditioner for sheer blondes. It uses a technology that puts a little violet color in your hair to tone down brassiness.

but if you don't want to worry bout that you can just spend the day in the sun (with sunscreen) and the sun will lighten your hair after a while!

dont do that. it is terrible on your hair and if you leave it in too long your hair could end up with the same texture as cotton candy or your hair could fall out. any chemical like that is terrible on your hair.

i wouldn't use a chemical so harsh on your hair[:

maybe just rub lemon juice on your hair and sit out in the sun. it won't burn your hair as much, yet you will still get the same effect[:
