Yesterday Adam arrived to a meeting with Charlotte and I sporting a post Glastonbury glow and a rather fetching hat. Despite the tan we couldn’t help but notice his hair was a somewhat different ‘warmer’ shade to normal. You see Adam had headed back to his youth and rediscovered the fabled Sun-In.
I bloody loved Sun-In as a teenager. The spray in highlighter used to take my mousey locks to a brassy blonde for a good week or two. It was super cheap and a bottle seemed to last for ages. However as I’m sure everyone remembered it was only a matter of time before the shade seemed to take on a mind of it’s own and let’s say went slightly more strawberry blonde than platinum. In fact anyone reading this who went to secondary school with me will remember my then boyfriend and I had unintentional matching ginger hair colours for a while thanks to my reliance on Clairol permanent hair colour and his misuse of a Sun-in bottle.
Let’s all be clear here, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with ginger hair, Juliane Moore has the most luscious barnet I ever did see, however Sun-In left me looking more pumpkin than Christina Hendricks.
I didn’t realise you could actually still buy Sun-In but if you fancy a walk down memory lane then you can bag yourself a bottle from Amazon.
Adam is keen to reverse his new ginger tone. Charlotte has suggested a good dousing of purple shampoo; One intense treatment on dry hair for five minutes followed by a regular shampoo after. I was going to suggest the tomato ketchup trick and then remembered that’s reserved for when hair takes a greenish tinge.
So the purpose of the post is two fold; to gather any tips you may have on eliminating Adam’s Sun-In misdemeanour and also to reminisce about the hair products of our youth. Who remembers Wella shaders and toners?! Maybe you favoured a hair mascara or a spray in colour? What did you used to use to transform your barnet rather than take a trip to the hairdressers?
