Returning to regular life after a vacation is always rough, but a fresh tan and sunkissed hair somehow make the transition bearable. While spring break is just around the corner, you don’t have to wait for your next beach day to bring out your hair’s natural highlights.
Suntouched is a gentle, heat-activated hair spray lightener that lightens your hair gradually to give you that summery, beachy look any time — no salon appointment needed.
Suntouched Beach Blonde Sun Hair Lightener for light hair, $36
Available in formulas for both light and dark hair, Suntouched is suitable for all hair types (including color-treated hair!) and described as “sunshine in a bottle.”
This special formula is “vegan and cruelty-free, [and] free of parabens, alcohol, bleach, ammonia, metallic salts.” It will leave your locks shiny and healthy thanks to vitamin C, chamomile and other antioxidants.

Suntouched also couldn’t be easier to use. Simply spray it on dry or wet hair until it is damp, and be sure to comb the product through to get an even result. Then, since it’s heat-activated, you can use a hair dryer or sit in the sun for a few minutes to activate the product. You’ll see the results in as little as a few hours and don’t need to rinse it out.
If you want to really lighten your hair, you can repeat the process — but the brand recommends waiting a few days between applications.
If you had a bad experience with a bottle of Sun In growing up, don’t worry. Suntouched’s formula includes a purple toner to neutralize any brassiness, leaving you with golden — not orange — highlights. Again, Suntouched lightens your hair gradually so you won’t wake up with a totally new head of hair.
One happy Amazon shopper said, “This is the perfect product to keep those summer highlights throughout the winter months… 5 or so uses of this (on my damp hair, brushed through, and right before blow drying for around 3 minutes) and I have my summer blonde back and recognize myself in the mirror again!”
Another reviewer shared: “I’ve alternated between Sun In and salon bleach jobs for years, but they always left my hair feeling super dry and damaged… Suntouched was SO gentle in comparison… The salon-highlighted hair is fried. The Suntouched hair is healthy and smooth.”
If you’re ready for summer, add a bottle of Suntouched to your Amazon cart now!
