Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

I've used it 4 times over henna'd hair and it's lightened up quite a bit. I'm very impressed! However it stinks and the smell lingers (it smells like manic panic.)

Perfect for dirty blondes

By bacongirl

Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

My hair has natural blonde highlights that fade in the winter. I started using this product after I shower then blow dry it. I can totally see a difference it adds that sun kissed glow back

Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

I am a natural blonde, and while it always got a bit darker during long dreary Canadian winters, it always brightened up again in summer. With age it is doing it less now, so I was looking to lighten it just a little bit in the winter. I don't want to start with colouring, so was looking for an alternative, and have been using sun-in with great results for years now. Over time I have learned what works for me: I wash my hair with a mild shampoo, towel dry, spray sun-in where I want to lighten, or all over. I then use the blowdryer on high heat setting to dry the hair - if I only put it on the roots, I focus on that, if I sprayed it all over, I dry everything. Then, I wash my hair again, with a stronger shampoo (I use Neutrogena no residue) and do a conditioning treatment (I use L'oreal) that stays in the hear for at least 10 minutes, then wash out. Only then do I dry and style as usual. What I find is that if I do what it says on the spray bottle, which is basically leaving that "washing out" step out, my hair gets dry and brassy. Doing the extra step leaves it lighter, but nice and shiny.

      Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

      I have locs and over time my hair has taken on a lot of different colors. I've decided to go for a more sun-bleached look by using a ton of different solutions including lemon juice and cinnamon which was bothersome to use. I like this better. It looks very natural and it very easy to use.

        • Graying Hair

        Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

        So I have been gray since ~16. I know that sounds weird, but that's just the genes I got. My natural colour is light ash brown, but it hasn't been that since I was a kid. Grays make the colour dull, not that ash brown a fun colour anyway. So I used henna as a teen, then hair dyes, nothing for a while and 3 years ago I found hair lighteners.
        AND I lOVE them. This one is my favourite. It smells great and makes my hair look golden! While the grays create sort of highlights. I love the look. Not for every day use, and do deep condition. I find that this lightener is milder on hair than similar products from John Frieda. And it is definitely for light coloured hair.
