As a teen did you ever experiment with Sun-In? For those of us who tried the stuff, the wonky lay down and undesirable orangey-hue is unforgettable—and unforgivable! [caption id="attachment_2487" align="aligncenter" width="179" caption="John Frieda Controlled Lightening Spray, $12.99."] [/caption] This sunny bottle from John Frieda is NOTHING like that orange stuff. I promise. I saw this stuff in action while on vacation last month. Not on myself but on my best gal—who is a natural blonde. A few months ago she decided to let her roots grow out resulting in a dark blonde on top and light blonde on her mid-shaft and ends—a natural looking ombre. After just one use of the John Frieda Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray ($12.99) her roots went a full shade lighter. A few more uses later and her roots virtually disappeared. This spray is user friendly, it lightens gradually so you can control how light you'd like to go. It's formulated with chamomile, citrus and a lightening complex that aids in evenly lifting colour pigments. True to all John Frieda Blonde products it also contains a violet dye which helps reduce brassiness. So you wont have to worry about a gnarly orange shade left behind. Although it works best for root touch ups on blondes you can apply it a few different ways. Try spraying it all over your head, on top of highlights to brighten them or you can even spray the ends of your hair to get that beachy ombre effect. I should note that this product is made for people with lighter hair—if you have dark brown or black hair this product won't do the trick. Available at drugstores and mass-market retailers.
