If you grew up in the '80s (or early '90s), then you're probably familiar with Sun-In: the magical hair spray that, when spritzed liberally on blonde or medium-brown locks before sunbathing, would lighten them to a sun-kissed shade of blonde. For many, the product is reminiscent of summertime, beach vacations, and long lazy afternoons. Looking to bring back the warm-weather mainstay, several companies have developed their own takes on the classic hair spray. Cue the '90s summer nostalgia.


IGK Summertime Hair Lightening Spray

A few spritzes of this camomile- and lemon extract-infused formula lightens locks naturally without the use of harsh bleaching agents. It also promises no brassiness, so the accidental orange-tinted hair is a thing of the past. 

To buy: $27;


Klorane Sun Lightening Spray with Chamomile and Honey

Formulated for blonde to medium brown tresses, this spray with camomile and honey promises to give blonde or light brown hair that healthy summer glow. 

To buy: $18;


Ouai Sun of a Beach Ombré Spray

The lemon and pineapple juice in this spray work to naturally lighten hair when it's heat-activated (whether by the sun or a blow dryer). Basically, it's a beach vacation in a bottle. 

To buy: $24;
