SUN IN SPRAY SUPER
Member Name: colpol
Advantages: It works.
Disadvantages: Can damage hair.
Over the last few months I have been an angel with my hair, I just haven't touched it at all with any kind of dyes, I have gone from a dark brown to a light brown in just 3 months, yay!
Anyway, with Christmas coming up I decided I wanted blonde highlights BUT I did not want to put my hair through the whole process of bleaching again as its just very harsh on my poor hair, so instead I picked up this spray which lightens your hair gradually as it contains some bleach ( amongst other things. ) and you use this twice a week on your hair wherever you want it lightened and obviously, it is a lot better than just chucking a big load of bleach on there!
I picked up mine in Superdrug and the price was around £3.00 which is pretty good value considering you get 150ml and it promises to lighten up your hair without doing as much damage as bleach ( IF USED CORRECTLY. )
So, I have had this around 2/3 weeks now and have been using it about 4 times a week ( oops, my bad. ) and have noticed a difference already in some parts of my hair, it has gone a lot lighter and quite brassy ( due to the bleach, normal if your hair currently has dye on. ) which is what I wanted as I can now put an ash blonde hair dye over the brassyness.
Now like I said Sun In contains bleach which is what lightens the hair, as far as damage is concerned, I haven't noticed much to be honest until this week, it has become quite split but nothing a good hair oil wont hide! I decided to just put away the rest ( I would say I have about 70ml left, so can easily use another time. ) as I didn't want to damage my hair further.
You can get lots of different results with this spray, if you want a highlighted look then simply spray and brush through, or if you want the ombre look apply to the ends of your hair! Or if you just want a lightened look, spray all over and dry BUT do remember this CAN and WILL damage your hair if you use it to much, you really don't need much so try not to coat your hair in it, just a few sprays!
Also, it isn't recommended for very dark brown to black hair, so I would advise trying something else, if you have a light natural hair colour this would be perfect for you if you want a hint of lightness added to your hair.
I would really recommend but like I said, follow the instructions properly.
Summary: I would use again.
