red, brown and black I know how to do naturally but blonde is a different animal as it involves taking colour away (usually, unless you have white hair in which case I DO know how to make it blonde naturally) I really don't know if it's possible. You can lighten hair naturally, via lemon juice and sunshine or honey lightening (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=61), but depending on your starter colour, that might not be anywhere near blonde.

Have you ever heard of natural Henna? It's a reddish color type of dye, so I don't know if you would be interested in that.

Do blondes have more fun? Naturally.

I Used Henna dye before. I bought it at WF. It is quite a process. It can only touch glass containers. You cannot color it again for a while but all of that will be on the box. You can use lemon juice to lighten your hair but it will become orangey.

I'm brown naturally. I've heard of Sunshine and Lemon, but I don't really have the time for that. I may jst do it with basic dye from the shops.
Diluted hydrogen peroxide can bleach your hair 'naturally'. It is extremely cheap and you can get it from a pharmacy and if you want to know more about the chemical, search Tonya Zavasta's blog for it, she has many good things to say about it. Dilute the hydrogen peroxide and let it bleach your hair gradually, over the weeks. I think some people use it in strong concentrations to bleach the hair quite quickly but this won't be very good for the hair. I haven't tried it myself but I'm pretty sure it will work.
I also put hydrogen peroxide in my bath water. It is an old folk cure for many things. (And it is NOT the same as bleach!)
Also, white wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, and lemon apparently gently bleach hair. I have washed my hair without shampoo (because of the SLS chemicals) for a few months now and it is so much less frizzy! I use bicarbonate soda or baking powder in water to wash, with tea tree oil drops, and diluted apple cider vinegar (acv) to condition. It is called the "no-poo" method. The acv seems to make my hair slightly blonder (I have dark brown hair).
I read somewhere that white wine vinegar gives you blond tones, acv more coppery blond tones - and lemon juice you have to put in your hair and sit in the sun with, for it to work (all are slow methods).
Hope this helps!
