Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

Love it! I have dyed hair and it still lightened it! It did take a few more times to get my roots to lighten but thats because my roots are about 2 shades from black!
Only negative is it's a pain to get it to go on evenly since it is a spray, still love it!

    Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

    Here the deal. Do I recommend this to others? Not necessarily. There's so many things that could go wrong with it, and I understand it's probably not healthy for you, especially on damaged hair. But it already has these warnings on the package! I LOVE it! Just be smart about it. My hair is already blonde to begin with. I don't dye my hair, and my hair is very healthy to begin with and has no red undertones to it. It works perfectly on me, and I absolutely love it! It gives it such a pretty lighter blonde color, and my hair turns shiny and sparkly after using it! It does not damage my hair, but that is because my hair was very healthy already. It is a very natural, pretty color. I get compliments on the color of my hair a lot. In fact, one time when I went to go get my hair cut, the hairdresser asked me what color I use in my hair, because she loved it. When I told her it was sun-in, she was so surprised! Haha, she told me that usually she see's people coming in with damaged or red hair because of it, but she told me that it actually worked out very well in my hair. I imagine that if you were to try this product on already damaged hair, it wouldn't end put so good. Also, be careful with the color of your hair to begin with. This is not recommended for people with darker hair. Of course there is always exceptions, but more likely then not it is not good for darker hair. Also, DO NOT use if you have dyed your hair in the past. Some of my friends have tried it on their already dyed hair, and none ended prettily. Also, be careful of the undertones of your hair, please! Even if you have the slightest red tint to your hair, or if your hair has the tendency to go a bit red with other products (some times you might not even know, but that's why you test it first), there is a good chance that this product will turn your hair an ugly red color. Bottom line: use common sense :). It warns you of these things on the packaging, and it tells EVERYBODY to test a strand before going crazy with it and dunking it on your hair. This will prevent you from disaster. Is this product for everyone? No, absolutely not!! Does it work though? Yes, it works more than perfectly on my hair! But everybody is different. I love this and will always use it once a year in the summer because of how easy and nice it is. If you're thinking about doing it on your already healthy, never before dyed hair, I'd say just try it; test a strand out! It's only about $3 a bottle (a bottle that will last you years, by the way). Just be smart about it! :)

        It may seem cheesy to some, but if you have blond or light brown hair this stuff is THE BEST. I've used it on and off for over 20 years :) You can highlight or lighten your hair for under $5. Seriously, it doesn't get better than that. I've always gotten compliments when either using it to highlight or overall lighten. It looks natural and even with some gray hair works great. But make sure your hair is naturally blond or light brown...otherwise you might not be pleased.

        Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

        I bought this product after watching some reviews on YouTube about it.
        I wanted to lighten my hair without having to permanently dye it.
        Sun In is great! After just a 2-3 uses I began seeing the change in my hair, even others noticed.
        I really like the color it gave my hair. Only problem is it is very time consuming and doesn't really go on evenly.
        I decided to permanently dye my hair and now I use Sun In as a touch up product.
        I love it and have already recommended it to many friends!

        Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

        I wanted to lighten my hair a little (it's usually a dark brown) but wanted to use something that didn't contain bleach. I am of mixed race (Black and White) and do use a relaxer from time to time, so I wanted something that wouldn't damage my hair. I wet my hair and then sprayed Sun In on just the front half of my hair. I sat outside for about 3 - 4 hours and ended up with a light golden brown color. It was alot lighter than I expected it to be but I love it. Sun In also didn't strip my relaxer, didn't kink up my hair, or make it stiff.
        Advice: might want to be careful around cholorine if you use Sun In at the pool. I tried using it on hair that was wet from swimming and it turned a more reddish color with orange undertones. Not sure if that was the cholorine or not though.

        I really like this product, I have black hair and now its a very light brown. I put this everyday after I took a shower and blow-dried my hair. I did this for a week or so until I got the color I wanted.

        Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

        I have been using this for 5 years now. I love it. My hair is a dark brown and I decided to use it one year when I went camping. My hair did turn a reddish colour, but it was more of a nice golden red. I usually spray it all through my hair in the beginning of spring, and on days when I'm planning on being outside for a while. It does grow out, but it's not bad. In the winter when my hair grew, and my roots were black and it looked like I ombré'd my hair. I take a shower at night and spray it in my hair with rollers, and I heard that you can spray it on your legs to lighten your leg hair. It does leave a sticky feel, but my leg hair is less noticeable. I love this product and I hope you do too.

            This product works great... I have natural blond hair but I don't like the color it looks very ashy. I spray the lightener on damp hair then blow dry. After two days I have a beautiful all over sun-kissed hair color that any blond would envy. And the best part is it's permanent!

              I'm a natural blond, just wanted to get blonder.
              And I got it! Apply to your damp hair, blow dry it and it's done. Repeat about 7 days and your hair Will get lighter, blonder and more golden.
