Natural Highlights

My hair is getting more and more gray strands!

This summer, I'm thinking about letting my natural sun highlights come in, rather than dyeing it with a darker (albeit demi permanent) brown.

I got this from Glamour and may try it...while lying out on the beach in Greece next month!

The Summer-Highlights CocktailWant sun-kissed highlights like Selena Gomez's? Salon Eiji's Michael Murphy says brunettes can DIY it by taking this "cocktail" with you next time you hit the beach. "Mix equal parts lemon juice and vodka and put it in a spritzer bottle," says Murphy. "Take a dip in the pool, then spritz your ends with the cocktail, starting at the ear level down, and let dry in the sun or hit with the blow-dryer." It gently lightens your hair for a more naturally sun-kissed look than a lot of salon highlights; color will be strongest on the lengths, where sun hits. And since the results are subtle, you don't need to worry about pricey touch-ups and the awkward grow-out phase.

I'm so excited! I leave in 3 weeks, going to meet up with Catherine Thomas in London and then onto her parents' house in Greece.
