As long as we have access to social media, creators will keep bringing back old and forgotten trends from the bygone years. Those who have grown up through the early 2000s dare not stick to the style and fashion they used to follow. Having said that, those questionable fashion moments and beauty hacks can give an individual an equal share of cringe and a generous dose of nostalgia. TikTok creator Kate Steinberg (@itskatesteinberg) took her viewers on a trip down memory lane when girls used to have a DIY hair-lightening hack.

To save some bucks on the salon bills, teen girls in the early 2000s would often try to find alternate ways to make their hair look more blonde. One of those crazy alternative methods was using lemon juice to give their hair a lighter shade. Steinberg appears in the video with her overly straightened hair parted on one side and some frosted eyeshadow with lip gloss on. Then she pulls a bag of lemons from her bag and starts squeezing the juices from them all over her head.

A voice questions her off-screen about what she is doing to which Steinberg answers that she is using lemon to highlight her hair. This hair-lightening hack was popular with women in the early 2000s because they believed that the citric acid in the lemon used to work as a bleaching agent like peroxide, giving people blonde hair. The video has gained more than 7 million views so far and the comment section was flooded by nostalgic millennials.

@chantel7723 suggested, "Put lemon in a spray bottle, with camomile tea and a bit of conditioner, it will lighten more evenly if sprayed then combed!" @looloo.booboo recalled, "My friend and I used Sun In at the pool one day in high school, and her mom freaked out when she got home." @zenkinii commented, "I used to get a crayon and color some bits of my hair and then run it over with a straightener." @nettiethegreat wrote, "I just rubbed it on my hair. It reminds me of when my friend would wash her face like the Neutrogena commercials. Like, girl." @derpyterps quipped, "I used peroxide. It smelled so bad but it worked and then I would condition five times after so there wouldn't be much breakage."

This isn't the only video where Steinberg has taken her viewers on a rollercoaster ride through the popular trends from a couple of decades back. Since her entire page is dedicated to nostalgia-inducing lost fashion and pop culture from the early 2000s, some of Steinberg's popular videos poked fun at them. The most popular video on her page with over 16 million views shows how girls in 2008 would act when the first period of their school day was swimming. Steinberg shows up in a soaked crop top with wet hair as she vigorously sprays perfume all over herself and hastily combs her hair at one side.

Another one of her videos with over 1 million views gives the latest generation an idea about how girls would dress up for prom in 2008. Steinberg shows up in "five layers of fake tan" wearing a glittering dress and sprays deo over herself once again. She has extremely light shades of eyeshadows on as well. Steinberg uses some hand cream and then pops four strips of Listerine in her mouth before walking off-camera.
