For those of you that like highlights...  Just spray and flat iron!

Here is a review I found at Katia's Kloset blogspot:

❤ Pros:                                                                                                                                 

- Easily done within minutes 

- You can spray more than once to lighten the strand of hair.  

- This spray is applicable to all natural or colour treated hair blondes, redheads and brunettes 
- Affordable  


❤Cons:   
- It may damage your hair. Well if you are using a flat iron it will damage your hair. And let's face it, dying your hair is damaging enough especially if bleach is used, so luckily this is not as damaging as bleach. Since you have to flat iron as soon as you spray the product, there might be a hissing sound as you flat iron since the heat passes over the product until fully dry, however it is normal to to see the steam as described in the instructions. According to the box description it contains Chamomile Flower and Fruit Blend extracts which leaves the hair healthy and full of shine.  
- I don't think it is suitable for people who have very curly hair and do not straighten it very often. However I don't think it should stop you from trying it since you can still flat iron it just to highlight your hair.   
- Highlight shade might vary according to the colour of your hair especially on dark or textured hair.  


❤ Tips:   
For shades of light brown, dark blonde and lighter hair colours a recommendation is to spray evenly the product after shampooing and conditioning the hair and blow dry. For a maximum lightening result spray and flat iron when styling.   
And here are the results:   
  
The highlights actually came out even blonder than expected, AND it looks even blonder in natural light. Do give it a try especially for those who would like to try out ombre like I did! In just 2 easy steps you can create sunkissed highlights within minutes.I am definitely giving this product a thumbs up!

I'm also curious how long it lasts.

I've never been tempted to highlight or dye.  Depending on how long it lasts, this may be tempting to try.
