Comments about John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray:

I will recomend this product, if you are blonde or dark blonde or red-head or ginger, this is not a product for dark hair people, not for black hair at all. ( it will not work) and it says in the instructions is not recomended for brunettes neither.I guess it could turn your hair orange, under the side effect of the oxigen Water. This product had Cammomile and Oxigen Water, that will fade the color of your hair, if you are blondish, and it´s great to cover grays, and you will not have to go to the hairdresser for a long time. Also, your hair will dry, but doesn't it dry every time you dye it ? Just go to the hairdresser to hydrate it. And you will have healthy natural hair, with highlights. also you will look blondier. More you use, more blondy you become.( be careful) if you are ginger like me you will turn to strawberry blonde or blonde. If you are dark blonde, you will look like Cameron Diaz in 3 months..I used it this time to take off a horrible not permanent dye. ( may head was dark redhead. And it works amazingly good in just 3 uses.

    Comments about John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray:

    I use this product to add to my hair just before drying it and it allows me to extend my professional highlights another 4 to 6 weeks! I have tried a few other lightening sprays in the past and they seemed harsh and far less effective. This is well worth the price too!

          I have been using this product for years and it works wonderfully. I always get complements on my hair color (even from my hair dresser, go figure). It gently brightens up blonde hair. I have thin, straight, blonde hair and it works great. Just spray it in before you go out into the sun or spray in and blow dry your hair. Your hair will get blonder the more you use the product.

              I have pretty dark blonde hair... Not sure how this would work on brunette or darker hair.. But for anyone with already blonde shades or light brown hair this definitely works. I usually pray a little on and go out in the sun or to the beach and come back looking super blonde. Works quickly, and as many others mentioned... It is a bit damaging to your hair so try not to use it everyday... Not that my hair was realllly bad afterwards but I did find it needing extra moisture.. I have never dyed my hair before so this is the closest thing I've done to that.. Great product. Will keep buying it :)

                    Comments about John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray:

                    this thing is an amazing hair lightener. It does what it says it's going to do. A few years back I used to this on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times a day. It definitely lightened my hair very noticeably several shades blonder. I had blonde hair with light to medium brown roots and spraying it on the roots covered up my roots within a matter of days. So I didn't have to bleach my roots. It was a lifesaver. But what I didn't realize at the time was how damaging the spray is. It fried off my hair approximately 2 inches off of my part. My hair became incredibly damaged. Mostly only on the top layer of hair where the majority of the spray was going.

                    So my advice is if you want something that's going to lighten your hair, this will work, but be extra cautious with it. Don't use it everyday, maybe only every other day, and always use a really good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner every time you shower. And even every now and again, use a coconut oil treatment for the extra boost. If you use this spray sparingly like every other day, and with a deep conditioner, then you should be fine. You shouldn't encounter the same issue I had with a frying off the top layer of your hair. But overall this product does exactly what it says it's going to do. I would just recommend to spray it on wet hair if you don't flat iron, but if you do flat iron I wouldn't spray it on until after you flat iron. Combining it with the excessive heat of the flat iron might enhance the damage of your hair. which isn't good for someone like me who constantly dies their hair, so my hair is already fragile. So just be weary of overuse.

                    This product works very well. My hair was a shade lighter after just one shade. I buy this product over and over again. The only problem I've ever had with it is that it sometimes dries out my hair.

                              I see people here saying that they used it every other day for a long time, or they wanted to go super blonde using this method. First of all, neither of those are a good idea. Use it at most 3 or 4 days and then STOP! Take a break. It does dry your hair out a bit so you have to give your hair a chance to recover!! This is like bleach in a bottle so be careful and do NOT put it on too often! Use a deep moisture conditioner the day after to help stabilize your hair.
                              It does add some brightness and hilites, but please do not think you will be platinum with the spray. I use it along with getting salon hilites.... Like when my roots come in a bit or if i want to take my hilites up a notch. I initially used this on my light brown hair (3 days in a row, spraying a little in each section) and i think it worked a little. Not so much that i got noticed with it, but i could tell a little difference. Now i have salon hilites and i just used it today to add a little more. So just remember, follow the directions which say to use only sometimes, and just a little at a time!!
