    Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

    Let me start off by saying I was one of those natural whitish/yellow blondes in childhood whose hair has since darkened to a dirty blonde/light brown. Sun-in is perfect for creating natural-looking highlights around my face and on the bottom half of my hair, so I would like to think that covers the whole "balayage" trend! It lightens it to a pretty gold color, too, not brassy or orange at all. I think that people who have darker hair or otherwise color-treated hair may experience that brassiness that so many people complain about, but if you're using the product correctly and have at least light or medium brown hair to start with, you'll be fine. This product can be damaging since peroxide is the key ingredient, but I only use it about every couple of months (and I make sure to wash it out when I'm finished), so my hair has actually stayed really healthy with my normal hydrating shampoo and conditioner. Also, a tip: Sun-in actually works a lot better if you use it in the heat of the sun! You can totally use it with the blow dryer, but that'll be much more subtle than if you let your hair dry in direct sunlight. Always proceed with caution when permanently changing your hair color!

      Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

      I was so glad to see SunIn on the shelf. I used this as a kid. It is easy to use. Just spray on and use the hairdryer and/or sun to see natural lightning. I am natural blond that has gotten darker with age and the SunIn is perfect to perk up my color.

        I love how it lightens hair instead of drastically changing the color. It gives me a very happy medium!

            Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

            I used to love this product until my hair started snapping off. I had light brown hair with natural copper and golden color highlights. I noticed a few gray hairs and thought I would try this product. It started lightening my hair. I thought wow this is great. My hair over time turned a golden blonde a pretty color. I don't care for harsh chemicals and thought this was safe but didn't realize how harsh this actually was. I was looking down at my long hair and noticed it had a springiness to it. I pulled it into my hand to look at it and my hair snapped off. I am more into natural products and never paid attention to the main ingredient PEROXIDE . I was horrified and stopped using the product and never used it again. It damaged my hair and I would never recommend anything that would do that kind of damage to anyone.

            This product is great.. I naturally have dark brown almost black hair.. Yes.. I know.. Did my hair turn orange? Nope! It actually just lightened my dark tones to a lighter blonde/brown and gave me a Carmel glow. Many people asked me if I had my hair professionally done! It looks great and even though it dries your hair, if you condition it well you'll be fine.

              Sprayed it on at the beach and later when I got back my roots had lightened up to where it was last highlighted!

                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.)

                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
