It can damage your hair, but it depends on how long you leave it in your hair or how much you do. Lemon juice is much safer.

Nothing too bad! When I bleach my hair, I put a little hydrogen peroxide in with the mix. I see a difference in whiteness when I do and don't use hydrogen peroxide. It gets it a lot whiter. However, hydrogen peroxide is DAMAGING to hair! If you're going to use it, poke a small hole in the film of a new bottle and only use a couple squirts! You have to be careful, because it can damage your hair and scalp. Keep and eye on it. And when you're done bleaching, deep condition the hell out of your hair! Good luck!
