Get to know the products

Tell me more about your products…

All of our products are color safe and free of parabens, alcohol and harmful sulfates. We want your hair to always look and feel its best, so we only use ingredients that keep your strands healthy in the long run.

Are Suntouched products tested on animals?

Absolutely not, we're proud to be 100% cruelty-free!

Can Suntouched packaging by recycled?

Yes, our packaging is 100% recyclable and made from recycled materials :)

Thanks to our partnership with CleanHub, Suntouched is plastic-neutral. They pick up the plastic equivalent of each bottle sold from coastal villages in Southern India.

How does the Hair Lightener work?

What makes this product work is a lightening blend of ingredients which includes hydrogen peroxide & natural extracts. Hydrogen peroxide along with vitamin C, citrus and pineapple work to oxidize the melanin in the hair, causing it to lighten.

Can I use Suntouched on dyed or bleached hair?

Yes, it also works on dyed hair by lifting the pigment of the hair dye, resulting in lighter hues.

What if there’s no sun or heat where I live?

Good news! This is why we say that Suntouched is for your summer hair year-round: you can use a blow-dryer on low heat for 3-4 minutes to naturally lighten your hair from the comfort of your home.

Can I dye my hair after using Suntouched?

We recommend waiting at least 4 weeks after using Suntouched before highlighting or dying your hair. We also recommend checking in with your stylist and doing a strand test beforehand to make sure both treatments are compatible. 

Returns + Canceling Orders

If I don't like my results, will you refund me?

Since results are highly personal & unique to our unique hair pigment, we are unable to process refunds for that reason. We recommend you to do a strand test before applying all over to make sure you like the lighter shade on your hair before applying all over.

How do I cancel my order?

Contact support@suntouched.co with your order number, and we will check if the order is still within the cancellation window.

Received a damaged product?

Route covers damage as well! To protect your order against damage that occurred during shipping, add Route Protect at checkout.
