      Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

      I used to love this product until my hair started snapping off. I had light brown hair with natural copper and golden color highlights. I noticed a few gray hairs and thought I would try this product. It started lightening my hair. I thought wow this is great. My hair over time turned a golden blonde a pretty color. I don't care for harsh chemicals and thought this was safe but didn't realize how harsh this actually was. I was looking down at my long hair and noticed it had a springiness to it. I pulled it into my hand to look at it and my hair snapped off. I am more into natural products and never paid attention to the main ingredient PEROXIDE . I was horrified and stopped using the product and never used it again. It damaged my hair and I would never recommend anything that would do that kind of damage to anyone.

      This product is great.. I naturally have dark brown almost black hair.. Yes.. I know.. Did my hair turn orange? Nope! It actually just lightened my dark tones to a lighter blonde/brown and gave me a Carmel glow. Many people asked me if I had my hair professionally done! It looks great and even though it dries your hair, if you condition it well you'll be fine.

        Sprayed it on at the beach and later when I got back my roots had lightened up to where it was last highlighted!

          I've used it 4 times over henna'd hair and it's lightened up quite a bit. I'm very impressed! However it stinks and the smell lingers (it smells like manic panic.)

          My hair has natural blonde highlights that fade in the winter. I started using this product after I shower then blow dry it. I can totally see a difference it adds that sun kissed glow back

          Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

          I am a natural blonde, and while it always got a bit darker during long dreary Canadian winters, it always brightened up again in summer. With age it is doing it less now, so I was looking to lighten it just a little bit in the winter. I don't want to start with colouring, so was looking for an alternative, and have been using sun-in with great results for years now. Over time I have learned what works for me: I wash my hair with a mild shampoo, towel dry, spray sun-in where I want to lighten, or all over. I then use the blowdryer on high heat setting to dry the hair - if I only put it on the roots, I focus on that, if I sprayed it all over, I dry everything. Then, I wash my hair again, with a stronger shampoo (I use Neutrogena no residue) and do a conditioning treatment (I use L'oreal) that stays in the hear for at least 10 minutes, then wash out. Only then do I dry and style as usual. What I find is that if I do what it says on the spray bottle, which is basically leaving that "washing out" step out, my hair gets dry and brassy. Doing the extra step leaves it lighter, but nice and shiny.

          I would suggest repeating the steps multiple times. It is hard to see results.
