How to Get Sun-Streaked Hair

A cool thing about summer beauty is the way the sun streaks and highlights your hair.
Sun-Kissed Highlights

Want to get sun-kissed highlights? Well, you can hit the salon for sunny streaks or do them yourself! Check out all these ways to get natural-looking highlights and add instant oomph to your look.

Olive Oil

Not only is olive oil a great hair conditioner, but it's also a great hair lightener. Just comb it through and let the sun do the rest of the work for you. It may take a few washes to get it all out afterwards, but your hair will be nicely moisturized and beautifully sun-kissed!

Lighten With Lemons

Lemon juice + the sun = highlights! This is great for blondes who wanna lighten and brighten up. Just add 1/4 cup of lemon juice to 3/4 cup of water, put it in a spray bottle and spritz it on your hair - but NOT on your scalp. Then kick back with some mags, some music and a lot of sunscreen, waiting for the sun to create summery highlights.

Cuppa Chamomile

Listen up brunette babes, cuz here's a natural way to bring golden highlights to your hair! All ya have to do is boil a pot of chamomile tea and let it cool. Rinse your freshly washed and conditioned hair in the brew and relax in the sun. If you want to go lighter, then do it everyday for a week.

Spray-In Lighteners

Spray-on products, like Sun-In Spray-In Hair Lightener, is another easy alternative. As the name suggests, you spray it on your hair and can either sit out in the sun for it to work its magic, or use the heat of a blow-dryer. The more Sun-In you spray on, the lighter your hair will turn.

Home Highlighting Kits

Think back to your first grade teacher's words of wisdom - follow directions carefully! Read the entire box before you start so you won't run into any unforseeable problems. We recommend L'Oreal Feria Color Strands QuickShimmer Highlights. It comes with a brush so you can comb it exactly where you want it, but keep in mind that the best places for highlights are on your bangs, the top of the crown and around your face.

The Work of a Pro

If ya wanna skip the DIY highlights, head to a salon to get a professional stylist to look after your hair. Let the stylist know whether you want skinny sections, which create a natural look, or chunky highlights, which are bolder and more dramatic. Be prepared to hand over a hefty wad of cash though - highlights are pricey, and the longer your hair, the more expensive it is!

So I have been best friends with this girl for six years, after Halloween she has not called me, answered my calls, or come over to my house (we live close to each other and go over to our houses all the time). I don't know why she hasn't talked to me and shes the type of person if you did something to make her mad she would tell you.  I don't want to call her (it may seem needy) but I have a bunch of her stuff at my house and I really just don't want them there anymore but I don't want to call her have a huge fight and avoid each other ( which would be really hard) forever.

This is really true and sad... Many teens, have a problem with this because of society. This post helps. I have had problem with suicide and bullying. Ive felt like I should just end it because I have no point to be here because I'm being told I'm worthless, to fat, to dumb, not pretty enough, all tons of lies and i got to the point that i believe them. I'm an outsider in my school. It fells like a lot of people leave me.  I fell pain a lot. and There is bullying going on in my school. Life fell mean less a lot. I have to remind myself that I do have a point and that people do love me.  I know know I do have a reason to live and so do you guys so  Don't ruin you're life. You're to young.  You're to worthy. The bully are just jealous of you. Don't self harm tonight. Don't comment suicide. You all are worth A lot I promise. People love you. Don't worry about hatters. The hatter are gonna hate but lovers are there to help you trough the pain and if you did comment suicide imagine how they'd fell. Thanks for posting this it really helped me and really could've saved a life:) :) Bullies are just having problems themselves remember that!!!! Stay strong everyone!!!

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
