Does Sun In (hair lightener) work? Mrs. Potato Dick Madagascar 20356 posts

My hair is naturally dark brown, but I'd like a few highlights without paying out the butt at a salon. Does this stuff work?

I saw this thing on the back of the bottle. Is medium brown the darkest shade you should use it on?

I did lemon juice a few years ago, but it killed my hair. I dunno if I just didn't take great care of it or if it was just really damaging.



Also, what deep conditioner do you recommend? I need a gooooood one.

Eek. How long did she use it? What color was her hair originally?

I don't know about using it on darker shades of hair. The website says it lightens hair up to medium brown, so I wouldn't feel comfortable using it on darker shades unless you just didn't care and wanted to experiment. Or I'd try it on a small strip of hair to see how it reacted.



My hair is dark blonde and it worked for me. But it's basically lemon juice with a few other chemicals in there. Lemon juice shouldn't damage your hair, from what I've been told. I could be wrong.



But basically you put that stuff on and then dry your hair with a hair dryer or go out in the sun and it will lighten where you've sprayed it.

It does work but you get the orangey copper colour if you have light-dark brown hair.

I didn't know a hair dryer would work. Hmm... that'd be much more convenient.



I'll probably just try with lemon juice again and then deep condition it right after. I used to be pretty lax when it came to taking care of my hair.

It's heat activated.

A bunch of my friends used to use that in high school. It works if your hair is naturally lighter or blonde on darker/brown hair it turns it a copper reddish orange color that's NOT cute.

Have you heard anything good about lemon juice?

nothing good, it does lighten your hair but will dry it out so you have to condition it well. Also you can't go in a pool or anything or your hair will turn green!
