apparently washing your hair in a chamomile rinse lightens it and makes it softer. I don't know about blonde though.

(I got this off a jar of dried chamomile flowers my tea-addict sister bought me)

'To soften and lighten the hair, pour a kettle of boiling water over a tablespoonful of flowers, cool and add this strained brew to your rinsing water.'

The only thing I've heard of, or think, you are talking about, is putting lemon juice in your hair while being out in the sun, which bleaches it, so you would want to adds some water to it. My cousins used that Sun In stuff you buy, did fine on their blonde hair but turns brown hair a nasty orange color!

I looked on Google and I came up with this:

http://www.myjellybean.com/summer/highlight.html

DO-IT-YOURSELF HIGHLIGHTING

Save money by trying this do-it-yourself formula for highlighting your hair:

Boil 3 cups of spring water (like Evian), then remove from heat. Add 3 chamomile tea bags and 3 teaspoons of lemon juice. Stir, cover and allow to steep for 30 minutes. Remove tea bags and store in the refrigerator.

To use, shampoo hair and rinse as usual. Squeeze out excess water and towel-dry hair a bit. Generously pour on herbal rinse until hair is saturated. Squeeze out excess and then style as usual. When you spend time in the sun, the ingredients in your hair rinse will help to bring out your hair's natural highlights. You can make and use the mixture as many times as you want until you achieve your desired level of highlighting.

Hope that helped!  Smiley

mah pleasure. Grin
 I was thinking of trying it out, but I like my hair colour too much. Or maybe I'm just used to it and can't be bothered.

later!

Pour lemon juice into your hair, and since you won't be in the sun, use a blow dryer with high heat to really work it in. Good luck! Smiley
