Q: I had really blonde hair when I was younger but got darker to dirty blonde is it possible it will bring back my natural color ?

submitted by Gizel - 3 years ago
  • A: Sun In is a hair lightener that lightens your natural shade. It will turn your dirty blonde hair to a lighter shade of blonde. That being said, it’s not a colorant with various shades, so we cannot guarantee it will be an exact color match to your original shade.

Q: Do you need to be in the sun for it to work?? Or does your hair just needs to be wet?

submitted by Anonymous - 3 years ago
  • A: Sun In works with heat activation – and that can be achieved by the sun or a blow dryer. We recommend applying Sun In to wet hair and then letting the sun activate the lightener or the heat of a blow dryer activate it.

Q: what does this do to natural gray hair?

submitted by Dusty - 3 years ago
  • A: Sun In is a hair lightener and not a colorant so it will not color gray hair. However, it may take some of the yellowish tints out as it lightens

    submitted byEG Product Expert - 3 years ago

Q: Should this be rinsed out after using it? How often can I spray it in my hair? And should I wash my hair before using, will that affect it?

submitted by E - 7 months ago
  • A: • For all-over lightening, spray damp hair generously, comb through evenly, blow-dry or go outside to catch some rays and treat your tresses to the sun’s heat. • For highlights, separate select strands, spray each strand generously, blow-dry or go outside to catch some rays and treat your tresses to the sun’s heat. • Repeat the above steps until you get the brightness you want.

Q: Does this still work with dark brown natural hair? Is it worth the money?

submitted by GG - 1 year ago
  • A: We can’t predict how your hair will react since everyone is so unique. We recommend doing a strand test to see how your hair will lighten. We have a lot of great examples on our IG feed + highlights of real examples to give you some inspiration. There are also examples of fun and versatile styles on our website. Have fun!

I've been using this since the 90s and it has always done what it is supposed to do. It does lighten my black hair but turns it a bit brassy and it's slow acting. Gotta add blue shampoo with it if you don't like the brassy/orange color. I usually use one full bottle on my hair for them summer days. My hair texture does not change or gets worse. But then again, I've always used it on virgin hair and not on treated or dyed hair.

Maybe I'm a hopeless traditionalist or my hair is brainwashed... but even though the directions say it works as well under the dryer as in sunlight, that's not my experience. Ten minutes with this on my hair in the bright summer sun and my whole head is brightened with lovely streaks. I don't make the streaks, just apply the product evenly and the streaks make themselves. Love it!

This is such a well kept secret. I have used this since 1970s. No other product in this spray lightener category compares to this fantastic price, quantity, and quality. It is wonderful for supplementing in between foil or balayage appointments.

It’s great, definitely makes you blonde. However it did dry my hair out a little. Also this is PERMANENT. It does not fade. Do not let anyone lie to you the last time I put Sun in in my hair was around a year and a half ago. Now I want to go back to my natural brownish blonde and not the super blonde I got from this. I’m having to grow my hair out because nothing makes it come out. My roots are something…. If you only want to be blonde for a short period of time this is not you’re product. Also the dryness definitely isn’t permanent I still have a good bit of the sun in blonde left and it used to be dry but it eventually after lots of conditioner is back to normal so the dryness won’t last forever but the blonde definitely will.

I’m not a fan of the spray bottle because it’s not comfortable in my hand while using it but it works so can’t complain. I use my paddle brush to comb through and blow dry. started all over even up to my roots and only did later treatments lower in my hair avoiding my roots since they were at the lightness I wanted initially. I got about 5 or 6 full uses out of one bottle. Only used my blow dryer. The Sun In didn’t make my hair feel damaged at all. Maybe a little dry but a hair mask really helped! My hair actually feels healthier now. The two top pictures are before two bottom are after 5/6 uses. It will make dark hair more orange auburn color and that’s what I wanted to this definitely works to lighten hair.

This stuff is amazing! I just wanted something easy that I could do at home to lighten my hair. I have three rambunctious kids and I don’t have the time to go to a salon constantly. I have medium brown hair and it definitely brings out the red, which I love! I wasn’t looking for blonde, just something lighter. It has not fried my hair at all, but maybe it’s because I use a good shampoo to begin with.

I have dyed dark brown hair and this stuff works. It slowly lightens it but you got to give it time. Your hair will turn an orangey brassy tone but with blue shampoo it tones it out to a pretty light brown. By the way this stuff is for brunettes too! I don’t know why a reviewer on here said it’s only for blondes. It literally says on the bottle blondes and brunettes

It worked really well. I have naturally jet black hair and this turned my hair light brown and almost redish which I like. The only thing is make sure to use a serum it does dry out our hair and the roots are hard to get because you have to blow dry it with hot air which is uncomfortable at the roots. I’m halfway through my second bottle and will be buying more!
