As a kid, I had light blonde locks, but that started to change as I got older. Since college, my hair has grown out darker and darker. It's now officially in the bronde category and, at times, I miss the lighter look. I prefer to not spend the extra money to have a professional highlight or weave, so I try to get as much natural sunlight as I can on the locks, but sometimes it's just not enough.
A sweet friend introduced me to a lovely product from one of my favorite local brands, Sun Bum. It's a hair lightener that gives your natural highlights a boost when sunshine is not as readily available. I decided to give the lightener a try to see if the golden locks could come early this year!
After washing and towel-drying my hair, I lightly sprayed the lightener over my locks—staying away from my roots, at first. To be honest, I was a bit nervous about the potential orange-effect so many other lighteners have, but I've come to trust Sun Bum's products and was willing to give it a try. They definitely came through with the lightener! After two sessions, my hair was lovely! It looked like I had simply spent a few weeks in the sun. My natural highlights brightened and a soft golden blonde radiated through. After that, I felt very confident and did 2-3 more post-shower sprays, going all out—lightly spraying from roots to ends!
I also have to mention, it definitely made my hair smell looovely! The huz kept coming back for whiffs :).
Sun Bum = Summer in our house, sooo smelling like it all day just made us antzy for sunny beach days!
Sun Bum started out as a playful sunscreen company, but now, to answer their fans' cries for more, they've started a full hair care line. Along with the lightener I just tried, they offer shampoos, conditioners and lock protection with the Shine On and 3 in 1 Leave In.
I started using the Leave In spray around the same time as the lightener. All I needed was a quick spritz on my ends after a shower to add some extra moisture and conditioning. With longer locks, it can be tough to keeps my ends from splitting and I've found the Leave In does just the trick!
Give Sun Bum a try. You may find a bit more sunshine filling up your every day.
À votre santé!
