I would not recommend this.

Comments about John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray:

Does anyone else remember Sun In? The terrible hair lightening spray craze that almost every girl and women tried in the 80's and 90's. Yeah well this is the same exact thing.

I've tried both products and I would not recommend them even if you are starting out with naturally blonde hair.

When I first bought it was thinking that it would be a big step from good old Sun in but it wasn't.

I have naturally medium to dark brown hair, and while this gave me gorgeous reddish brown highlights, it terribly damaged my hair. My hair was healthy before I used it, and after using it, it was really dry and damaged. It felt brittle and I had noticeable split ends. You'd be better off using regular hair bleach because it causes just about the same amount of damage. Not only that but if you get it on your skin it gives it this uncomfortable burning sensation and turns it white. That can't be good for your scalp.

This also reeks of hydrogen peroxide and body odor. The smell is even noticeable after your hair dries. It's horrible.

Do not pick up this product, if you want lighter hair, go to a salon or give yourself highlights at home another way.

Effectiveness
It lightens your hair, i'll give you that. But the damage is causes is definitely not worth it.

Ease of Application
It's easy to use, you just spray it in your hair and comb the spray through with a comb or brush.

Highlighting without bleach?

By 

from USA

Comments about John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray:

I first bought this product to help lighten my hair overall before i bleached it platinum blonde. I took pictures from the first use to the end of the bottle. I noticed a dramatic difference with color. My hair turned way lighter. Though a huge downfall is that my hair was turning kinda orangish. Not red head orange but there was a definite tint. Then when i bleached my hair blonde there was a lot of orange chunks. At the same time my sister started using this product and she used purple shampoo every other shower to keep the orange away and it worked. She used John Frieda brand of purple shampoo.

Effectiveness
Works great over time, with a little tint, unless you use along with John Frieda's purple shampoo( or any other purple shampoo) Though if your using this to lighten hair before bleaching, then after bleach, orange becomes more noticeable.

Ease of Application
Spray into hair, use heat (optional). I liked to use a straightening iron because straightening applies the most heat.

Extends the life of color

Comments about John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray:

I have naturally blond hair but it has gotten darker since I was a child and it looks a little mousy so I decided to get it done at a salon, there is no way I would be brave enough to color it myself! I really like the job they do at the salon but it is very expensive and I really hate the upkeep. I started using the Sheer Blonde shampoo and conditioner and I liked them but they lightened all of my hair and sometimes I felt like it got too light. Then I discovered the sheer blonde lightening spray. The great thing about it is that I can spray it directly on my roots and avoid getting it all over. It definitely works! My roots are much lighter and I can go longer between hair appointments which is a huge bonus. It is very inexpensive and absolutely worth the money. The only word of warning I have is that it can make hair feel a little dry so I would recommend using a deep conditioner at least a couple times a week.
