Oh, how I love Fall and Winter seasons. For me, this time of the year means that our Hawaii weather takes a chill pill a bit, but it also means that I tend to take my hair from brown to semi-bold. This year I was excited to go purple but realized that I hadn’t gotten much sun exposure over the summer months so my natural highlights were non-existent. Basically, that meant that the purple color would not be as vibrant on my darker brown hair. To help fix my dilemma (I know, first world problems here), I decided to turn to an old favorite, SunIn. How does SunIn help with my problem, you say? Well, read on to get all the details.
So, my normal hairdresser said that in order for the purple color to show up on my hair (which happened to be darker brown at the moment), I needed to bleach my hair. Seriously, who has time for a bleach job when I want to be out enjoying the cooler weather? Also, I just couldn’t see dealing with the damage since I hadn’t used bleach on my hair in over 5 years. So, I decided to turn to a product I haven’t used in years – but one that saved the day when I was in my teens – SunIn. SunIn has been around since the 70s and my mom and I used it consistently in the 80s. I remember spraying it into my hair before heading out to the beach and by the end of the day, well… my hair had beautiful highlights or sunkissed color. So, to lighten up my hair quickly so that my purple color would take, I thought… Yes, SunIn to the rescue.
While my purple hair is temporary and washes out, SunIn is one of those products that are tried and true – definitely NOT temporary. It’s like having sunshine for your hair… well, sort of. This spray lightener is heat activated (not just sun-activated) so you can lighten your locks with a hair dryer – making it ideal for the colder months. SunIn is one of those products that will help lighten your hair and brighten blonde to medium brown hair ALL YEAR ROUND. It’s easy to use, fast and there’s no need to wave a magic wand to get this trick to work – I promise.
SunIn gives you the same natural highlights that you would get from the sun (think babies or children – how their natural blonds baby hair sparkle in the sunshine) only faster. SunIn has an advanced conditioning system that includes botanical extracts and special illuminators that give hair that extra dose of shine. It’s alcohol-free and conditions the hair while it lightens it. Did I mention you didn’t need the “sun” to get the results you want? SunIn works with your hair dryer and is quick and painless. What I love about it is that I don’t have to worry about my scalp burning from having bleach on my hair for hours on end and my hair loves it.
This is my hair about 3 weeks after I added the purple color. As you can see, the purple is faded, but it wouldn’t have been vibrant or rich enough if I hadn’t lightened it with SunIn first.
I love that SunIn is so easily available to purchase (as it always has been). I can simply walk into my local Walmart or skip the drive and order it online and I get it when I need it. Furthermore, the product smells great. The lemon scent reminds me of summer and freshness – no yucky chemical smells here.
When it comes to products that I know I can count on, SunIn is definitely the one. I talked to my mom about my hair dilemma a few weeks before I used SunIn and giggled when she told me… “Hey, do you remember SunIn? Just go pick up a bottle and you’re good!” Ha ha! Even mom remembered and she ran out to the store to spruce up her hair too.
So, how about you? Do you love your natural highlights from summer to last you year round? Or, are you looking to add some bold color to your hair and need to lighten your hair up a bit first? If so, check out SunIn. At a great deal and no need to visit the salon, I think this product would be a great hit for you too.
