    It works!

    Bought Suntouched on a whim because I wanted to change my look without dyeing my hair and I’ve been so impressed with the results! My hair still feels healthy and I’ve gotten so many compliments!

    I highly recommend this for my dark hair girlies who want to lighten their locks easily!

    Great!

    Slowly lightening my hair. My natural hair is dark brown and it’s now maybe a shade lighter. I’ve been using a hair dryer to lighten instead of the sun and it’s going pretty slow but I’m glad I’m doing it the healthy way.

    Softer and lighter hair!!

    I've always had jet black hair and I've been afraid to dye it because I don't want to mess with its texture. Suntouched looked promising, so I tried it, and I'm SO glad I did!! Along with lightening it to my dream shade, it also actually made my hair softer and silkier. The change was gradual (it took about three uses for me before it really began to lighten up), but that was nice because I could use it liberally without going overboard. I have a feeling I'll be using Suntouched every summer now!

    Really works

    I wasn’t sure it would work much on my dark hair, but everyone’s commented on how lighter it is. No brassiness or damage either!

    SunTouched is still my favorite hair lightener!

    It has been a year since I discovered SunTouched. I haven’t returned to regular hair dye or other lighteners as SunTouched is gentle and easy to to use. I use it about every 4-5 months. I have grey hair that blends nicely with the lightened hair. It may come off a little more red at times, however using it with the blue hair mask helps tone it down. I love that I am able to keep my surf/beach highlights all year long!

    Good purchase

    It definitely lightened parts of my hair that typically lighten during the summer. I just wish it worked on my hair overall in the areas that don’t lighten on its own. I would purchase again.

    Great product for brown hair too

    I used the dark hair spray and it did actually lighten my hair a few shades and didn’t damage it. I would recommend buying the blue toner as well because there can be a little orangey tint depending on your natural color. Overall I’m very impressed and glad I gave it a shot. Will purchase more of the product in the future for a natural summer hair look :)

    Frequently Asked Questions

    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 :)

    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 sunkissed highlights year-round: you can use a blow-dryer on low heat for 3-4 minutes to achieve golden, beachy locks 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.
