How to Brighten Your Hair Naturally

How to Brighten Your Hair Naturally

Do you dream of subtle golden tresses like Gisele Bündchen or Jessica Alba? No need to go through the whole colouring process or fly down to The Bahamas (even if we would want to!) to adopt this hair trend, also called sunkissed. Go with the hair revolution, 100% sun.

Tie and dye, sunkissed effect, "back-to-the-beach" tresses, balayage… Regardless of the name you give to it, this is the look you want all year long! The objective: To have hair subtly lightened a few shades, as though it had been naturally lightened by the sun. The beauty of this hair effect is that it is easy to achieve and maintain. Simply choose the formula best for you—gel or spray—to obtain sunny, caramel-coloured hair!

Sunkissed effect, progressive, natural lightening

Do you have naturally blond or light brown hair? Garnier proposes two formulas, a gel and a spray, which will gradually make your hair two shades lighter. It is applied to clean, towel-dried hair, and it does not require the skill of a hair expert. The benefit: These products do not require any rinsing, and, post-application, your hair feels very soft (thanks to chamomile extract) with a fresh summer scent. What more could you ask for?

Gel or spray, what texture should you choose?

Choose a gel formula if...

  • You are looking for a more obvious result.
  • You want to apply the product as precisely as possible and choose specific strands that you want to brighten.
  • You have naturally blond hair.

Pro tip: Start by applying gel to the hair around your face, and then at the back of your head. You can also brighten hair lengths and tips if you want. Have fun... Be creative!

Choose a spray formula if...

  • You want a more subtle result.
  • You like simplicity. Simply spray the strands (after washing and towel-drying) that you want to brighten and you will see results in two or three days. So easy, anyone can achieve a professional look.
  • You have light brown hair.

Pro tip: You can speed up the brightening process by activating the product with the heat of a hairdryer or the sun.

Vacation hair all year round

Whether you want to keep your golden locks for as long as possible or to pamper your post-application hair, choose hydrating shampoos and conditioners such as those from the Fructis Damage Eraser line.
