1. Wash your hair with Dawn dish soap
Wash your hair as you usually would, but use Dawn dish soap instead of your regular shampoo!
2. Apply lemon
Cut your lemon in half and then squeeze the juice onto your hair.
Your hair won’t feel nice during this stage, but stick with it!
Leave the juice to sit for a couple of minutes then rinse it all out.
3. Apply a toner/purple conditioner (optional)
Yana then applied a purple conditioner to her hair and let it sit only for a short amount of time to avoid her hair turning purple!
4. Apply a deep conditioner
Next, apply a deep conditioner or mask to your hair and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing.
