I have been coloring hair for years, and yes if you dilute Clorox bleach, you can lighten your hair, but please believe me, there are BETTER, SAFER ways to do this with products from home. Clorox can burn your hair, and it CAN fall out, not only that, the fumes are hard on your nose and lungs. Here is list of household products you can use to lighten hair (I put them in order of effectiveness, 1 being the best)
1. Hydrogen Peroxide sprayed onto hair, left on for 30 minutes, rinse, wash and use a GOOD conditioner. You can do this every day until you get the results you want.
2. Hydrogen Peroxide with lemon Juice, left on hair (30 min) to dry in the sun or with heat from a hair dryer.
3. AN equal mix of Peroxide, baking soda, honey, and conditioner, left on hair for 30 minutes.

Just remember to use a really good conditioner after trying these, you can use these daily until you get the results you want.

Do not listen to the people telling you your hair will fall out of you use the household bleach. as long as you dilute it first and best to use foils for your first try. it will make your hair dry but just get some good conditioner and it will be fine. not fall out. i have the feeling the people on here have never tried it before so there is no reason for them to be answering this question when in actual fact they know nothing about bleach. be careful of your eyes and skin obviously or even use the cap that way it wont touch your scalp and you can dye all over if you wanted. people really need to stop thinkin they know it all when they really dont. My sister is about to BLEACH my hair using the same substance and has previously used it on her own. it doesnt come out yellow or cheap brassy. its actually a nice natural colour blond. :)

AHH!! no no no no! never ever ever use household bleach on your hair ever! hair bleach is only called bleach because it makes your hair a whitish blond. if you put household bleach in your hair you will have no hair left, it will fall out.

there are many places that sell hair bleach. bleach is composed of different parts you mix in an applicator to put in your hair.
if you live near a beauty supply store they will have it, if not go to a website

or something similar. also remember when dying your hair it might burn really bad but you just have to wait it out.

good luck :)
