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

Purchased this product to give my blonde highlights a lift for spring. Applied to wet hair as directed then dried with blow drier. Minimal change to color after 5 applications over the course of a week. Hair felt slightly drier and a bit frizzier. Wonder if it will work better if applied to wet hair that is sun dried. I miss the old gel product from this line.

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

I used this probably around two years ago. I wanted lighter hair without bleaching it (don't we all) I have heard about similar products like sun in and only heard horror stories so I was a little nervous. I bought the whole set, the spray, shampoo, and conditioner. It worked very well. I was completely blondeIin about 2 1/2 -3 weeks. My friends and family all noticed and loved the color. It wasn't brassy or an ugly shade. (I had light brown hair previously) the smell wasn't bad unless you got it on your skin, which just smells like peroxide, not very flattering but it goes away after blowdrying. However, it dried my hair out completely. My hair actually broke off and I had to go through weekly treatments. I'm pretty sure this was caused from over usage because I wanted fast results. I still deal with damage and I'm terrified to do anything to my hair. But I recently used it around 5 times to lighten my hair from black to brown. It worked and no damage. But I think as long as you use this product carefully and keep up with conditioner and keeping your hair moisturized it can be a very effective product.

    I am not a natural platinum blonde but I can go an entire year without root touch ups as long as I'm using this product. I use it every time I wash my hair and the results are consistent and long lasting.

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

          I have dark/dirty blond hair that gets natural golden highlights in the summer. In the winter, however, my hair loses most of the highlights and becomes dark and dull-looking. I don't get highlights at a salon because I like the natural look, and natural-looking salon highlights fade from my hair as well. When I discovered this product I was really excited, it seemed like a great way to lighten up my hair naturally in the winter! The negative reviews about hair damage put me off a little, as my hair was already slightly damaged from heat styling. I decided to try it out, and was pleased with the results. I use it sparingly, no more than twice a week, and it really lightened the shade of my hair plus it brought out all my summer highlights! I would definately recommend this product for anyone with hair similar to mine - someone with a darker shade of blond hair that wants it 2-3 shades lighter and natural looking. This product will however dry out your hair so I wouldn't recommend using the product more than a 2 or 3 times a week.

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

            I'm a natural blonde but in the winter my hair tends to grow in darker because of the lack of sunlight, I tried this product and it turned my white blonde hair a yellowish color. It definitely lightened it but it was nowhere near the tone of my natural hair color.

            Use in Moderation

            By Nicole

            from atlanta GA

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

            I love this product and have not had damage to my hair because I use it in moderation. I have dirty blonde hair which I get professionally highlighted. I tried this product to try to extend my time between salon trips like most people. When I see my roots coming in, I usually use this product 2-3 times after washing my hair and before blow drying. That is it...I don't use it anymore until I see the roots coming in again. It has peroxide in it and of course if you use it over and over, you are going to destroy your hair. You wouldn't bleach the same area over and over and not expect major damage! As a side note, it does make my hair where I spray strawberry blondish. I don't mind it because its lighter and it seems to agree with my skin tone.

            I used this when i get out of the shower, first but on a heat protector and leave in conditioner (ITS A 10 IS THE BEST ONE OUT THERE) and then spray everywhere, blow dry, straighten, hangout in the sun, throw some chlorine on there (its like a bleach).. then go home shower see it dry and BAM! golllddeenn... IT SMELLS SO BAD THOUGH! but i recommend it. its natural and the safest one out there. SUN IN IS TERRIBLE!
