Summer Hack: How To Lighten Your Hair

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own.

I have never dyed my hair before and somehow everyone loves the color of my hair. I get compliments all the time, especially during the Summer. I even get questions on how to lighten my hair.

I’ve always been scared to change my hair color! Plus it also can become too expensive in between coloring and have it recolored after it dies out. It just ends up giving me a headache. Another fear I’ve always had has been what if my hair color would ever get back to what it was before? You can really see how I overthink things.

During the Summer I spend quite some time outside which helps lighten my hair already and highlights which I love. Since I have these reservations I go to the next best thing for having all year round Summer hair.

SunIn Hair Lightener

One product I have always loved using is SunIn

SunIn has been on the market for years. I can always remember seeing it on the shelves of my local pharmacy growing up. The best part is, it can lighten your hair color based on how the sunlight would but even better. Plus it is heat activated. During the Wintertime, I flat iron my hair weekly so since you’re not getting much sun you’re still reaping all the benefits.

SunIn is alcohol-free and recommended for blonde to medium brown hair. My hair is originally dirty blonde-brown so my hair is perfect for this. If you’re worried about your hair drying out since it’s another hair product don’t be. My hair is crazy curly so it dries out quickly but SunIn actually helps condition your hair while in use. Plus when I’m always flat ironing it when it’s cool and not scorching out. I won’t have to think about always getting my hair damaged.

How to lighten your hair for that beach look all year round?

I’m a busy millennial parent but I also like to look and feel good. The easier the better in my book. SunIn is so easy to use. Plus you can use it yourself. No help needed which is great.

Before & After

I’m a huge curly haired girl especially since I mostly get them for being a Latina. I let them naturally dry.

If not my hair doesn’t come out looking great. You can see how my hair is lighting up for only using this twice. Throughout this upcoming season, you’ll be able to see an even better difference.

Overall Thoughts

I am so glad I started to use SunIn. Like I said earlier dying my hair scares me so having the next best thing when all I want is to have my hair lighter anyways is using a great product that can help achieve those results. Plus I dislike having to spend a fortune on hair products since a lot of times they don’t always work. So, knowing I can use this for a huge fraction of the price and actually work is amazing.

Where to purchase?

It can be a turn off when you purchase a bundle on hair products and they don’t even smell great. SunIn comes in a scented LemonFresh and Tropical. If you’re fruity or a regular based scent these are both great. The best part is it is only $3.48 at your local WalMart which is a huge plus in my book. Especially, when this lasts for months. When it comes to trial and error for my hair the price is very favorable especially when it’s the first time using a product.

    It’s definitely possible they changed the ingredients in the product since I’ve used it 15 years ago, but this stuff destroys your hair. My hairdresser used to yell at me for using it for what it did to it. To keep your hair the healthiest, always use salon quality hair dye or don’t dye it.

    Don’t get me wrong, I used to love the lightened hair too, but just not worth the damage it will do.

      I know they are alcohol free which is a plus. It’s definitely not for everyone though.

      I think it is a great alternative for people that can’t afford to go to the salon.
