Honey is very natural and mild bleaching agent dear. It doesn't make your hair gray. I have been using it since childhood and it didn't made my hair gray.

That sounds promising. I have very oily skin on my hair. I don't know why, but at the same times some dry spots. Maybe I should try it. Is it going to lighten my hair too because of the lemon? xo Sabine
