Has anyone ever had their hair bleached by the pool?

The top of my hair looks like it's been slightly bleached, it's definitely lighter. I have been at the pol just about every day for the past 3 weeks. On Monday, i did put lemon in my hair but i didn't think it did anything. The little girls I'm with told me Monday & Tuesday that my hair looked lighter, but i didn't notice it. WELL...i sure do notice it now!

Has this happened to anyone else? None of the girls hair are lighter...just looks like i dyed it!

Could it have been that lemon? Did it have a delayed reaction? Or could it be the pool???

  • The combo of Lemon Juice and Clorine turned my hair raging orange. Totally hideous, and I'll never do it again!

  • Lemon and sun will definitely lighten your hair. Chlorine will make it green if you are blonde. Sun alone will lighten your hair, too.

  • Like you said, YOU didn't notice, but others did, so it has been that way for a couple of days like they said.

  • I used the lemon Monday though & just today my hair looks like this....could it have had a delayed reaction?
