I used to use it as a student. And I swear my hair looked fine. Does in old pictures too. I moved on to expensive highlighting when I started working. But now I have 2 little ones I don't have time for highlights any more. But I miss my blonder hair. Has anyone used sun-in recently? Can you even buy it now?
Thanks. I did wonder if I could use highlights after. I loved the simplicity of sun-in. The way you don't have to wash it out. Other home colours look quite complicated. But sounds like I better stay away from it.
<whispers> I used it over a couple of years without any problems. Don't know if it was because I only used that (and shampoo and conditioner) and wasn't constantly striaghtening hair or adding other colours or products ? Agree with you, fabulously simple to use, and doesn't involve dying the towels, the floor, the sink, your clothes, your neck, etc.
Backforgood, that was like me. I use nothing else other than shampoo and conditioners. And I swear my hair looked great. It was actually quite shiny. That's why I am tempted again. But I have heard so many bad things. I think I could get away with bad hair more easily in late teens/ early twenties. But maybe not so much in my thirtys. Not sure it's worth the risk.
I'm tempted too OP. I'm not so bothered if my hair breaks off a little bit as I have masses of it,but I thought a few 'sunkissed' bits round the front might disguise the grey on my temples brighten me up a bit.
I used to bleach my hair to within an inch of its life and dye it all sorts of colours (then backcomb it and spike it) and it seemed ok.so I wonder if some hair can tolerate rough treatment more than others?
