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?

Sunbabe lightens all hair types and colours. Dark hair reveals lighter, caramel tones. Check out our feed @sunbabehair and the ‘Results’ highlights for examples!

Finally a spray that lightens with very minimal damage! So many products either don’t work as claimed or make hair brittle and damaged. But Sunbabe worked and took my hair from super dark brown to a soft, shiny sunkissed lighter brown with a hint of highlights . I’m truly amazed.

Great product

I bought the Sun babe to add some highlights in my hair. I had misgivings about the fact that I had box dye in my hair but I just followed the strand test. Anyhow, I'm so happy with it have only used it three times so far going to start putting in the toner and stuff in my hair regimen.
My hair looks so natural and shiny I'm so impressed! I feel like I have a better sense of control on where I want to use it. I encourage anyone thinking about lighting their hair to try this!
