I had a mini heart attack the other day when I saw

I had a mini heart attack the other day when I saw this new John Frieda lightening spray.  For some reason I assumed it meant that Sun-In was discontinued.  Thankfully, I was wrong!  It even has a new* look. When I was in Cyprus recently, I reminisced by the poolside about my Best Hair Ever, which was a result of the following high-risk behavior process one summer in high school: - Copious daily amounts of Sun-In - Swimming, with Sun-In in hair, in a highly chlorinated pool - Baking in 100 degree + sun until hair is dry - Deep-conditioning from root to tip NIGHTLY with Garnier Fructis The last step must be the only reason my hair didn’t fall out.  I returned home with white-blond hair just around the time Gwen Stefani made her appearance on the scene [I AM OLD].  Needless to say white blond hair was where it was at and I subsequently watched several of my classmates go bright orange in the pursuit. The bottom line - in my non-professional, at-your-own-risk opinion- is that if you want to go super light blond (and you’re currently blond or dark blond), a long, slow process with good old Sun-In and lots of conditioning over the course of the summer is not a bad way to do it. Call it nostalgia, but Sun-In is in the top of my cult hair product list. Does this: Slowly but surely lightens your hair while teleporting you to the 80’s Is this: Sun-In Hair Lightener in Original or Lemon Get this: Above Price: $4.99 *NEW clearly being a reference to New Kids on the Block, not modern times as we know them.
