What Is Sun In Hair Lightener?
Sun-in has been around for more than 30 years now. It is a spray-in hair lightener that lightens your hair by using two main lightening agents, including
- Lemon juice
- Hydrogen peroxide
Apart from that, the spray also contains few other ingredients for scalp protection and to moisturize your hair. For instance, chamomile flower extract and aloe vera leaf juice are common moisturizing and protective agents used in sun-in hair lightener.
Is Sun-In Hair Lightener Safe To Use?
Sun-in hair lightener is pretty safe to use and is healthy for your hair. However, it may react slightly differently if you have already dyed your hair. For instance, if you have dyed your hair with a dark color, then your hair may give a brassy look after applying the spray. However, it may take some time to get desired effects of sun-in hair lightener on black hair or other darker shades. The spray is most effective for medium to dark blonde hair.
How To Apply The Sun In Hair Lightener?
You can use a sun-in hair lightener as per your convenience. That is, you can use the spray in different ways to get your desired results. Here is how you do it.
Step 1: Paint Or Spray
Sun-in comes in a spray bottle, so if you want to use it, for instance, on a specific section of your hair, such as your bangs, then you have to “paint” your hair rather than spraying it. Just uncap the bottle and dip a ¼ inch paintbrush in it and apply it to the desired area. To make it short, you have to apply the spray to the areas you want.
Step 2: Product Activation
Option 1: Expose Your Hair To The Sunlight
You have to apply heat to lighten your hair; the natural way to do that is by exposing your hair to direct sunlight. Just apply the spray on dry hair and go to a pool or a beach for few hours. Avoid wearing hairstyles such as ponytail because you have to give your hair maximum exposure to sunlight. Remember, use the spray liberally because the more you spray, the better will be the results.
Option 2: Apply Heat Artificially
Well, if you don’t have time to sit in the sunlight, then you can use artificial methods to apply heat. Just apply the sun-in hair lightener spray and blow dry your hair for about 10 minutes. If you have longer hair, you can blow dry your hair for more than 10 minutes.
