Prepping my Hair for Summer with SunIn

Can you believe that it's already Memorial Day weekend? The weather where I live is supposed to be beautiful for the next few days, so I'm looking forward to spending time outside with family and friends. In addition to being outdoors, I'm also standing up as a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding this weekend! It will be so exciting to see her get married to her college sweetheart. 

On Memorial Day my husband and I are planning to go over to his parents' house so we can lay around by the pool and soak up the sun. It will be so nice to relax and enjoy the warm weather - the forecast is saying that it will be 95 degrees. I love this time of year because my skin gets a little darker and my hair gets a little lighter. 

One thing that a lot of people are surprised to find out about me is that I’ve never colored my hair. I’m a natural blonde and I have natural highlights. When I was in high school and college, I worked as an outdoor lifeguard and the sun lightened my hair like crazy each summer. Now that I’m older and I work full-time in an office setting, I only get to soak up the sun on the weekends (which is why I take advantage of being outdoors as much as possible during long weekends like Memorial Day weekend), so I’ve been looking for a product to help lighten my hair so I could get back to the lighter color that my hair once was.

I recently came across SunIn and it's perfect for me because it’s heat activated. That means I can use it while I’m blow drying my hair and I don’t necessarily need to be in the sun for the product to work. Each morning after I get out of the shower and brush through my hair, I spray a little SunIn in my hair and then use a blow dryer to take my locks from damp to dry. 

How to use it:

1. Spray SunIn on damp hair and brush it all the way through. Make sure that the product is distributed evenly. 

2. Focus on certain strands of hair if you want to create a DIY highlight look. 

3. Use a hairdryer to dry your hair and bring out the colors in your hair. 

If I want to lighten my hair quickly, I know that I can count on SunIn. It's a much faster way to get the same natural highlights that you would typically get from the sun but it's quick and easy. Another reason that I love SunIn is because it includes botanical extracts and special illuminators as part of it's advanced conditioning system. With all these added goodies, my hair is super shiny and looks healthier than ever. Lastly, SunIn is alcohol-free. 

I wanted to show you my results using SunIn, so I took a before and after photo. After using the product I could tell that my hair was much smoother and easier to brush than normal. My hair is generally pretty thin and fine so it gets knotted easily. It was super silky and smelled amazing after I sprayed some SunIn in it. I also loved the way that it made my hair shine. I've definitely received some compliments from people and some have even said that they think my hair is looking lighter these days. That just goes to show that SunIn really works!
