ORIBE Bright Blond Sun Lightening Hair Mist Brings Back Summer’s Using Sun-In

ORIBE Bright Blond Sun Lightening Hair Mist is a new hair mist that creates controlled highlighting using heat from a hair dryer or the sun to gradually lighten hair. Can I tell you this is the fastest I’ve ever purchased a product? I used to use Sun-In when I was a tween and into my teen years. I LOVED what it did for my hair. Some people don’t realize this but my hair is dark brown, not black. When I used Sun-In my hair would develop these beautiful light brown highlights! It was really gorgeous.

Needless to say I’m hoping ORIBE Bright Blond Sun Lightening Hair Mist does the same for me. This is a hydrogen peroxide-free formula that uses natural plant, flower and fruit extracts to gradually lighten hair while delivering weightless moisture, shine and essential UV protection. A natural blend of lemon and chamomile add brightness and enhance highlights.

I actually air dry my long hair so I don’t think I’ll use it with a hair dryer but I’m fine with just misting it on and going. You apply it on damp hair and just head out for the day or you can blow dry your hair. It gradually brightens your hair the more you expose yourself to the sun or your hair dryer!

I know Sun-In was cheap as hell and worked a treat for me but ORIBE Bright Blond Sun Lightening Hair Mist is $38. If it works I honestly don’t mind the price! I’m a little worried it won’t work and I’ll end up with blind streaks or something! Funny as that was never a worry of mine when using Sun-In (I used to mist it madly all over my hair) but as we get older I guess we get more concerned with these things. I think the “bright blond” is what had me a little concerned haha…! I’ll proceed with caution and try it on a lock of my hair and maybe blow dry that one area before I commit to misting it all over my head. According to the details it can be used on blondes, strawberry blondes, and brunettes!

I’ll let you know how it goes!

ORIBE Bright Blond Sun Lightening Hair Mist is available now at Nordstrom and Sephora.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I was such a Sun In addict in high school and college and if I was strapped for cash, would use lemon juice. During the summer, my poor hair would be fried from the chemicals, the salt and pool water and being in the sun at the beach all day. It is a wonder it didn’t all fall out. But at least I never used sunscreen either. Eeek! The follies of our youth. Lol

    • Isabella Muse

      Oh noooooo! Sunscreen was sort of not as ingrained into us the way it is nowadays so, I sort of blame the time!

      • Catherine

        Exactly right. My mom was a sun worshipper in the 70’s and when I was a baby would take me to the beach without sunscreen. Luckily she has amazing skin still and she is 73 years old. I am still not the best with sunscreen everyday, but getting better. Live and learn.

        Hope you post pics if it works and gives you beautiful highlights.

        • Isabella Muse

          my sis! She was a baby oil and bake girl lol! She looks amazing still so I guess the sun didn’t do too much damage. Absolutely live and learn ;-D I def will! I can’t wait to try it! I miss Sun In!

  • Anne

    I can’t wait for your update! I have a similar hair color to yours and I know you will be honest if it doesn’t work (as a former sun-in user, I hope it does).

    • Isabella Muse

      I am so praying it works great because I’ll buy stock in it LOL!

    I was a natural brunette and would use Sun-In in my youth too. It gave me beautiful light coppery highlights that invited compliments galore. I went prematurely gray in my early 30s & now have professionally dyed & highlighted hair.
    My friends & I also used the baby oil & iodine concoction & baked every weekend since we lived within walking distance from the beach. I’ve been sunburned so many times, that I’ve lost count, sigh.
    When I reached my mid thirties, I realized I was going to be heavily spotted & wrinkled prematurely from my past lifestyle & started using sunscreen, retinols, peels, exfoliators, etc. for the 1st time. Well, my new routine worked! I saw a dermatologist 10 yrs later & he remarked that I had the skin of a 30 yr old. Just threw in that story to let people know that it’s never too late to fix your skin.

      that’s amazing Violet ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s very inspirational as well because some people sort of throw in the hat when it comes to skincare if they aren’t seeing right now results!

  • Liz Schufman

    Hi! I recently bought this spray (I have light brown hair), I’ve only used it a couple times and haven’t seen any change (I definitely think I need to give it more time). After reading your post, I’m wondering if you are still using it and if you had good results? Thanks, Liz

    • Isabella Muse

      I literally just started using it this past weekend while sitting by the pool! No change yet either! But I suspect I need to spend more time in the sun with it on! ๐Ÿ™‚
