Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

I've been using Sun-In since I was a teenager, and I love it. I use it to enhance my natural blonde color, but it wouldn't work quite as well on dark hair (it will make some brassy undertones unless you use it a lot). You'll probably need to deep condition after 3-4 uses, as it is hydrogen peroxide and it will make your hair sort of frizzy, especially if it's fine or curly. But I've always been happy with the color and highlights it gives me! They look really natural (since they are!) and they're really easy to get and maintain.

      Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

      THIS PRODUCT SERIOUSLY DAMAGES YOUR HAIR. I have chunks missing from my hair after using this and there's nothing I can do but pray no one notices until it grows out. I'm left with ugly roots and can't do a thing about them in fear I'm going to break my hair off to the root and be left with bald spots. Just don't risk it.

        My hair has heavy blonde highlights but after a week or so the color looks dull. I read that Christy Brinkley uses this. I use it after every shampoo and it keeps the color light and bright and shiney

              Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

              This product should be not be sold! And should come with a warning! You can not dye over the colour that the spray produces as it is a harsh bleach! I used this product a year ago and it is the biggest regret I have! I'm stuck with this disgusting colour which I can only remove by "growing out" or cutting off! I warn you all deeply to avoid this product and just use a regular dye!

                Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

                Let me start off by saying I was one of those natural whitish/yellow blondes in childhood whose hair has since darkened to a dirty blonde/light brown. Sun-in is perfect for creating natural-looking highlights around my face and on the bottom half of my hair, so I would like to think that covers the whole "balayage" trend! It lightens it to a pretty gold color, too, not brassy or orange at all. I think that people who have darker hair or otherwise color-treated hair may experience that brassiness that so many people complain about, but if you're using the product correctly and have at least light or medium brown hair to start with, you'll be fine. This product can be damaging since peroxide is the key ingredient, but I only use it about every couple of months (and I make sure to wash it out when I'm finished), so my hair has actually stayed really healthy with my normal hydrating shampoo and conditioner. Also, a tip: Sun-in actually works a lot better if you use it in the heat of the sun! You can totally use it with the blow dryer, but that'll be much more subtle than if you let your hair dry in direct sunlight. Always proceed with caution when permanently changing your hair color!

                  I was so glad to see SunIn on the shelf. I used this as a kid. It is easy to use. Just spray on and use the hairdryer and/or sun to see natural lightning. I am natural blond that has gotten darker with age and the SunIn is perfect to perk up my color.
