As far as I know there is no way to change the color of your hair that drastically without using dye, and even if you dye it there is a chance you will still have golden tones. Anything that will lighten your hair like lemon juice will add to the gold or orange tones by making it brassy. The best thing to do in my opinion is to wait until you can go to a professional. Good luck!
