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

      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.

                      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!!

                          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.

                          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.
