Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it last?

Results will stay light. Whenever you lighten hair, whether at the salon or with Sunbabe, it’s permanent because pigment is lifted from hair to create a lighter shade. Sunbabe lightens gradually over a few uses, so results are in your control. Continue use to lighten up to 3 shades!

How do you compare to other brands?

There are key differences between us and other brands. Sunbabe includes violet pigment to counteracts brassiness. Sunbabe Solar Hair Lightener is also slightly stronger and includes quality ingredients that support your hair during lightening. We omit ingredients commonly found in other methods of lightening, including alcohol, parabens, sulphates, phthalates, metallic salts, aluminum and ammonia. We are also proudly 100% cruelty free, vegan and made in Canada. 

Will it damage my hair?

Our formula acts as a gentler alternative to conventional hair bleach. Sunbabe lightens hair gradually to avoid stressing out strands and is buildable over a few uses to avoid going too light too quickly.

Does it work on dyed hair?

Yes, Sunbabe will lift the dye from your hair to help to achieve a lighter shade. 

What if it's bleached?

Yes, Sunbabe safely and effectively lightens bleached hair. Both bleached and natural strands will lighten 2-3 shades over a few uses. 

What if it's dark?

Beyond my expectation!

love this spray!

as someone whose always wanted lighter hair but never wanted to dye due to the upkeep and maintenance, i decided to give this a try. 2 years later i am still using it! i think i’m on my 3rd or 4th bottle so they last quite a while. the spray is super effective in the sunlight, especially in the tropical sun. i start to use it during the spring months, and mostly when on vacation. but i still even use it during the winter as my roots start to grow in, and just blow dry it and straighten it after spraying. a few rounds of that and it works just as well for upkeep. i also notice it sets in a bit more after a shower, so i always make sure to wash before doing another round of spraying to ensure i like the color. it doesn’t smell wonderful, but for the results and the price that is a nonissue for me. i’ll continue buying!

Amazing product that don't damage my hair !! ♡

Love it !! I received so much compliments for how looks my hair. I started to used this product in the beggining of summer but I wish that my hair looks like this the whole year.
I never change the color of my hair, I didn't took risk for use products that damage my natural color. I'm very happy, my hair looks shiny and beautiful.
I was blonde when I was a child but grow darker step by step with years. Sadly !!
My natural color now is brunette/ medium brown.( First picture). The product works really quick,in my own experience works even better with the sun, I tried with the hair dryer but don't looks in the same way.

After one day of use and being in the sun I already saw a huge difference in the color of my hair. I would really recommend this product for someone who wants to lighten their hair and get quick results.
