Hello-
I know this may be quite off topic but i had no one to ask.
Well i have my hairlighted (i have brown hair with blonde highlights) and the highlights aren't as bright as i'd want them to be. Would i be able to use another form of highlighting such as "Sun in" or Lemon Juice without causing the current highlights to turn orange? Thanks so much.

Well, the thing I would suggest is to try a strand of hair and see what happends. If you like it use it all over your head. If you don't, then don't use it. Simple as that...

Sun-in is all low-grade peroxide bleach so really, unless you want to fry your hair utterly, I wouldn't suggest using it at all.

I'd just tell your stylist next time you get the highlights done you want them a bit brighter.

You also may find that using a color-deposit shampoo for the shade of your highlights can brighten them. Both Aveda and ArTec make good ones.

ArTec is good, thats what my stylist suggested for me, but for shampoo and comditioner was $40..and its violet, almost looks like paint, but it works pretty good. And just ask your stylist if she can go gradually brighter.
My stylist had also said never use Sun n, if you ever get a perm your hair will fall out or, i dont remeber quite what he words were, but its bad.

My sister used a product called blonde Goddess(it's by Nicky Clarke.)

Here's some info on it.
http://www.nickyclarke.co.uk/colour.htm

Tis pretty good by all accounts

And John Frieda has a product called Blondes. Also pretty good by all accounts.

Neither of these products are very expensive. Any pharmacy (I'll say CBS as it's the only American pharmacy I know) should have it. Or hair supply store.

NEVER EVER TRY SUN-IN!!!! everyone girl i have known who has has regretted it, it makes your hair bright orange! if u want to lighten your hair yourself i suggest the clairol cap. Its amazing and makes your the hair the most beautiful colour of blonde, my friend used it last year and i recently did my sisters hair w/ it and it came out gorgeous... no orangy at all and both of them had medium bronw hair b4!!! 2 thumbs up!

On the other hand, some of us HAVE bright orange hair -- hopefully from something less damaging than peroxide, or naturally -- and like it just fine.

there's this stuff you can get to counteract the brassiness of bleached hair, it's a tinting product, it looks kind of purpley/blueish. I think it's called 'sheer blonde' and they have a whole line of products.

the product neg*nancy is talking about is called "toner" and a lot of hair care companies make it. It is a lavender-colored creme or liquid that you use like any other dye product.

As for Sun-In, I have had friends get good results from it, but it does require attention (don't leave it in too long and whatnot). Me personally, I'd rather get it done professionally, but since I don't have the $$$ for that, I do it myself (but I use much stronger peroxide than Sun-In)

What I did a couple summers ago with my normal hair color (light brown) was put on a staw-hat pull pieves of hair through it and put lemon juice on it. It worked great, but I was out in the pool all day just floating around, so it really had time to soak in.

Ive been wanting to either go back on the Ar Tec, or find something new that will not just lighten up my hair, or get rid of daily damage, but eliminate the brassiness, or orange, and bring out a more even lighter/ natural blonde. I was finally getting the color i wanted, but then something happened and my hair dresser went away for a long time, and someone else was doing it, and it was a diffrent shade, my hair has orange and yellow, and i want to get back to the way it was...but the Ar Tec is expensive, so i went to my salleys beauty supply and got some cheaper violet shampoo that will get rid of the brassiness, and lighten any highlights i have...if it works out ill tell you more about it.
Its called "Stay Blonde" and its a rejuvinating shampoo, i couldnt find the conditioner though. I hope it works as good.

Hey. No, I wouldn't use any of that stuff, it is already bad for your hair and dryes it out. You could also mess up the color of your highlights very bad. Your hair could have a bad reaction from having too many chemicals mixed in it. Talk to your stylist about what he/she thinks.

I use sun-in, and have for about 5 years now, and it has made me very blond, not orange at all. I went from a medium brunette to a bright blond using just that stuff. My hair isn't fried or overly damaged. I'm sure people have had problems with it but I love the stuff...I just spray it on my roots before I blow dry.
Just wanted to throw in my 2 cents.
*by they way, I don't have highlights so I don't know how it would react with them but as someone mentioned before a patch test on some unnoticable piece of hair could give you an idea about if you'll turn orange or not.

Hey trance, are you talking about not using sun in, or the shampoo i was talking about useing?

Because i know theres nothing wrong with that shampoo, its prolly better for my hair than anything else. Its made to clean colored hair without stripping it, and says it wont alter your hair color. Its EXCTLY like the stuff my stylist gave me before, but not as expensive. It eliminates brassiness like the other shampoo cause its violet. And ive used it once, and my hair is already noticably softer. And i dont ut anything on my hair besides the color every other month, and shampoo and conditioner. If my hair was bleached, thats a big problem all in itself. Then i would need to worry about what else i do to it.

And i have used sun in years ago, and it lightened my hair nicely, and never did anything damage, but i stopped useing it once i decided to go fully color it. I was born blonde and my hair would get darker as i got older. But there was nothing wrong with sun in, we would spray it on, sit in the sun, and it was good. It wasnt untill a few years after stopping using it that my stylist told me it was bad and your hair and would melt it if you got a perm after using that stuff.

Hey, yeah sorry about the confusion, I was talking about the sun in. I don't use it, but I am going to school for Cosmetology and have learned about what different chemicals and combinations of chemicals can do to your hair.
