    Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

    This product has been around for quite a while. I used this to lighten my hair in the early 90's. Now I use it to lighten the top and sides of my hair before I color it with body art quality henna. Because henna color tends to be cumulative, the color can get quite dark with successive colorings. Using Sun-In to lighten my crown and the sides of my hair around my face helps give my a multi-tonal look, like I might actually spend time outside and my hair is naturally lightened by the sun.

    This stuff is super easy to use. Wash your hair. Spray Sun-In on your hair where you want to lighten. Comb though. Use your blow dryer on high heat or go outside and air dry your hair on a hot, sunny day. Sun-In is really gentle, so it takes a few uses to really see the difference. Definitely less intimidating and easier to use than bleach. I've never had any issues using before henna or boxes hair color.

    This product does smell a little funny, BUT it does work I have medium tone brown hair and it lightened it to a light brown, like when I was in elementary. You can use it as highlights too, but I just spray it all over looked pretty and natural! :)

      Comments about Sun In Spray-In Hair Lightener:

      Soon after I used this one my hair, I noticed my skin started to swell. Later, I noticed that splotches of pink were covering my stomach area. My hands started to burn, so when I looked at them, the skin was peeling off. This didn't heal till quite a while. This product does overall, work, although it isnt worth all the hassle.

          At first i was very excited to use this product, but then I hated the results. I have strawberry blonde hair, and I could barely see any color change. I have shampooed and conditioned my hair, but I can still smell the horrible stench of the product. My hair not only smells bad, but is all dried out.

              I am a strawberry blonde and vowed never to dye my hair but i wanted to be a blonde and my hair somewhat gets sunbleached in the summer. I bought this and it made me blonde with strawberry blonde undertones and I absolutely love this product. I have used it for only a week and I can see a difference!

                    This stuff works great, definitly use it if your looking for a natural way to lighten already blonde/light hair. I wouldnt reccomend it for darker hair. It does dry out hair though, so be sure to use conditioner every time you wash and do a hair mask or so depending on how much you use sun in.
