When you want a natural-looking boost of brightness to your hair without hitting the salon, lightening sprays can be just the ticket. Ingredients such as lemon and chamomile lighten strands over time and get more effective the more often you use them. While you don’t have to sit in the sun for the formula to work, the UV rays will boost the formula’s effectiveness. Hey, any excuse to hang out in the sun, right? (Just don’t forget the SPF.)

For the yummiest scent, and two of them at that, choose Sun In’s lightening spray. You get a lemon and tropical scent that will stay with your strands. Aloe and flaxseed condition while the lightening ingredients work their magic. If you know you’re going to be spending a lot of time outside, or if you live in an especially sunny climate, you might want to choose Sun Bum’s version. It has UVs, as well as frizz and humidity. If you prefer an ultra-natural formula, Gnarly Head’s biodegradable spray is gluten-free and vegan and also acts as a detangler and leave-in conditioner.
