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

      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!!

          This product does not lighten blonde hair AT ALL! Not even a little bit! Sun In works better for less money!

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

          I never review stuff online but I had to with this stuff. I fear for the people who see the product reviews that say 5 stars and get it. In the summer of 2011 i started to see roots come in from my highlights and wanted to deal with them and saw this product and tried it. I used it every other day to every third day. I LOVED IT!!! I got so many compliments on my hair as it was very light. It turned my hair platinum blonde even though I only sprayed the roots. I was in the sun every day lifeguarding so I'm sure that didn't help. For a few months I had beautiful blonde glistening hair, but what would follow wasn't worth it. Like many others, my hair started to break off. Since I was spraying the roots, my hair was breaking off 2 inches below my part!! You can't really cut that off. I had to get bangs, and spend the next two years making sure my hair was healthy. I didn't apply heat to it for 2 years, and spent that time using expensive products. I am still tempted to use the product again because my hair looked the best it has every looked, but it's not worth 2 years of trouble.

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

          I was looking to lighten my dark blonde hair, but I didn't really want to take the damage that bleaching would do so I decided to buy the full Go Blonder system. I have only used the products three times but so far I wouldn't say that the product has made my hair a ton lighter. However, it HAS made my hair much, much brighter. I have gotten a lot of compliments on how nice the color looks and how bright it is. Besides that it has really evened out the color of my hair- instead of their being really light parts and dark parts, it is all about the same hue now. I recommend this product on the basis that it makes your hair a really pretty color (at least for me it did). On the downside, it DOES make your hair drier. I put some coconut oil on and it has seemed to bring back most of the moisture. Even though I like this product, I think I might still bleach my hair because I want it to get to a platinum blonde, and I don't see this product getting it that light. After the third use, I didn't see much of a difference in the color. I'm going to use it one more time and see if it does anything for it and will make my decision after that.

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

              After several years of spending way too much money with stylus I decided to give my hair a break. Do you do extensive hair loss I was concerned about the use of this product. I had always lost hair after highlighting and was tired of it. I use this product for over a year and a half, I've gone through 2 1/2 bottles, and I use it about once a month. I follow all directions with the exception of applying heat any kind of heat. After I shower I tell grandma hair I spray the product in my roots I come through and I put it in a bun and go to sleep. I do this on the weekends only and by the evening of the next day I can wash and dry and style my hair is normal and I absolutely love my color!!! If they would take the application off the bottle of heat or flat iron I do not think that people would lose their hair and this product would be a phenomenal hit

                    This product makes your natural and processed highlights ligher and golden. I used it 3 times and I noticed my base of color lighten and so did my highlights. I recommend this product as a color corrector if your hairstylist gave you 2-3 shades darker than what you asked for. I loved it and it saved me a trip to the salon.

                          I love this product for lightening my hair. It works much better for me than regular hair color and it stays in much longer than regular hair color. It never fades, and gives me great natural looking highlights. I get so many compliments on my hair color! And it's a great price for a long lasting product!
