If you're like most women, you'd probably want to experiment with blond hair at home before paying hundreds of dollars for a professional hair color treatment that may go wrong.
The beauty team at Refinery29.com have discovered a do-it-yourself product that lightens locks after 3-5 uses -- putting the '90s hair lightener favorite, Sun-In, to shame.
John Frieda's new Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray contains a citrus, chamomile and Lightening Complex blend that provides an even blond glow, and a violet dye to shield against unwanted orange color. Bye, bye brassy strands!
Our Refinery29.com friends recommend this hair goodie for root touch-ups, highlight brightening and going ombre, noting that when using heat tools such a blow dryer or flat iron, your hair gets blonder.
However, brown or raven-haired ladies should schedule an appointment with a hair color professional when going lighter.
