Lighten Your Hair the Fun and Easy Way with SunIn

Winter has come. I have already prepared my winter essentials and placed a few of my summer must-haves at the back of our closet. However, there are still a few things about the summer season and warmer climate that I simply can’t let go. One of these is having beautiful highlights and ombre streaks on my hair.

The cold season can become quite gloomy and one pick-me-up that I use to ward off the anxiety and depression that comes with the winter season is adding a hint of lighter shade to my hair (preferably the tips). Ombre hairstyle makes me look more young, fun, and carefree.

If you are curious as to how I can still afford to lighten my hair despite having a cute little baby boy, well, I will share my secret with you—the SunIn Hair Lightener! Having a lighter hair shade used to be a summer thing but because of this product, I am able to enjoy sporting sun-streaked hair all year long!



Since I have medium to brown hair, I got both shades that help me achieve my desired hair color, and those are the SunIn Lemon Fresh Hair Lightener and Tropical Breeze Hair Lightener. And YES I love both products! Believe it or not, this product is alcohol-free which means no unwanted damage! It brings out ones natural highlights effortlessly. In fact, even my husband said that the color of my hair is like a breath of fresh air from the gloomy winter weather. Ain’t that sweet?


The thing that I love most about this product is that it does not only lighten my hair—it conditions it as well! Not only that, this hair lightener is so easy to apply. Just merely spray it to damp hair and comb it through. If you want to achieve the perfect sun-streaked look, you just have to spray only on the strands that you wish to highlight. Just like what I do for the ends/tips of my hair. Guess what? This product is readily available at every local Walmart and also at – super convenient!

Making your hair lighter has never been this fun and EASY! This hair lightening treatment works even without the help of the season since it also works with your hair dryer. Talk about combining beauty and convenience in just one product! Check out the following editorials from other beauty bloggers and learn more about Sunin.

    I used this back in the day when I was a teenager. I had no idea it was still around. How fun.

  • Karen Morse

    That sounds like a fun product! I think it’s awesome that you’re able to lighten your hair without having to dye it. It’s definitely convenient!

  • Laura @ MommyDearest

    I never thought to use Sunin in the winter months. I have only ever used this product once, I have fairly light hair on it’s own though as I am getting older it’s not so light anymore. I think I might give this a try. .

  • Krystal Butherus

    I think it is great to be able to get through the winter months when you might want something that feels new and fresh.

  • Beth Davidson

    I think my son has been secretly using this behind my back. Lol. This is a fun way to have an endless summer though!

  • Stephanie Pass

    I had no idea they still had Sun In. I used to use this all the time in the summer when I was a kid.

  • Michelle Leslie

    I want some of that. Love the fact that you can just spray it on and comb through. Do you any idea how it works on grey hair Angela?

  • brianne

    I so need to lighten my hair and will have to try this out. I haven’t had time to get the hair salon, so this would be a perfect solution!

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    Growing up, living in the south, I was outside by the pool every year when summer vacation hit. I had my sunscreen, towel, float, and SunIn! I had no idea that this was still around.

  • Tiffany Haywood

    I remember this product! I had no idea it was still around but this is definitely a fun way to add a few highlights to your hair.

  • AnnMarie John

    I color my hair a lot but I’ve never used a product like this before! I like that it’s easy to use and that you can just put it on when you need your hair to be a shade lighter!

  • Kristiana wajnblom

    What a fun and inexpensive way to keep your hair freshly lightened! I haven’t used this product before but I am a regular at the salon so maybe I should try it!

  • Jeuelle

    I haven’t ever used Sun In as it’s not really for my hair type but I do remember my girlfirends going crazy over it when we were younger! It really is a cool product.


    This Sun In hair care product looks so interesting. I would love to give it a try. I have heard about this with my friend and it sounds so good.

  • Alicia Taylor

    I remember using Sun-in when I was a kid many years ago. I didn’t realize they still made it! It definitely did the job.

  • kimberly lewis

    this stuff really works! I used to buy this all the time for my oldest daughter!

  • Terri Steffes

    I love seeing this product. It was a summer staple when I was a teen in the 70s. Loved everything about it and when I smell it now, it takes me back to those summer days.

  • Ana De- Jesus

    Do you know I have never lightened my hair before or tried dying but I would like to one day to see the effect that it would have! I am glad that you can enjoy sun streaked hair all year round!

  • Jessica Joachim

    I had no idea sunin was still around! I used to use it as a kid to lighten my hair. I was a swimmer though and outside all the time and in chlorine so one summer it got SUPER blonde lol

  • Cindy Ingalls

    I remember Sunin from my teenage years. Though I never used it I do remember my friends wearing it when they would go to the beach to help their hair look extra light.

  • Shell

    I haven’t seen this in years! I had no idea they still made it….I use to love to use this in my hair all the time as a teen and it worked fabulous.

  • Krystel | Disney on a budget

    I remember this from when I was kid! So awesome and it really does work

  • Molly Elmore

    Sunin was huge when I was a kid. I have dark hair so I did not use it as much as my fair hair friends but the stuff really works! Glad to know that it is still around bringing sunkissed joy.

  • marie

    Oh I tried lighthening my hair before but I don’t think it really suited me.I like the fact that it condutions though!

  • Reesa Lewandowski

    Oh wow it has been forever since I used sun-in. I didn’t even know it was still available!

  • Rachel

    Sun In was the first thing I ever used to try to lighten my hair. I sprayed my brother’s hair once to be a jerk and he forgot and went outside. HE had a light spot.

  • Journa Ramirez

    Sun In looks so great and effective. I can also say that it smells so good. I love it!

  • Talina

    I’ve actually never heard of these products but they look and sound so good! Will definitely check to see if I can get my hands on this down here in Mexico!! xo

  • Samantha

    I remember SunIn being popular when I was growing up. I haven’t ever used it. I didn’t know that it was alcohol free or that it conditions your hair. Two good things to have in a hair product!

  • Jasmine Eclipse

    Oh my gosh, I totally remember using this when I was younger! I was so obsessed with light, blonde hair. But now I’m embracing my natural, darker red locks!

  • corinne & kirsty

    I never put anything on my hair. Not that i don’t want, i just don’t know what to use. I had never heard of that brand before but they sound like something i could use!

  • Sneha

    Although I oil and condition my hair every week, have never tried this product. I love light shade, so I will try it soon. I guess it easy to use and good for hair.

  • Maria

    I have medium brown hair as well, so I’m wondering how lighter I’d get my hair! I tried the sunkiss jelly from loreal last year and it worked well, but this one seems less abrasive! my hair got super dry….

  • Nati

    What a fun product! I have never really thought to lighten my hair, I have very dark brown hair (and now I also have a few white ones, lol)

  • Karolina

    We don’t have this brand in Europe i believe, but that’s a pity:( I could really use some of their lightening power 🙂

  • Ellie Plummer

    I haven’t heard of anyone using sunin for years so I’m glad that it’s still making its way around haha.

  • Tanvi Rastogi

    I would have loved to see some before and after pictures … but I will definitely research on this products as just recently I was thinking of lightening my hair colors.

    I didn’t know that Sun In was still around, but this brings back memories. I lightened my hair with it when I was a pre-teen. 🙂
