This week I'm obsessed with... Marc Anthony Easy-Lites!

Remember when we used to use Sun In or lemon juice to lighten our hair or give us highlights  -and how, unless your hair was the perfect shade to compliment the product, it would turn your hair a sickly orange...? Good times!

Fortunately, things have improved in the lightening world and there is a product out there now meant for all hair textures and colours - including colour treated  - I was a little skeptical - "all hair colours" does not generally include redheads so when I tried it, I expected it to either do nothing or do something horrible (I had a box of hair colour ready just in case) but it really did lighten my red hair to a lovely coppery colour!

Mark Anthony Easy-Lites - 90ml - $11.99 - if you are all about immediate gratification you are going to love this! All you do is spray it on and flat iron for instant results - the more you flat iron, the more lift the colour gets which makes it easy for you to control how light you want to take things!

With chamomile flower - nature's hair lightener; hydrogen peroxide - to lift your hair to its next shade level with each pass of the flat iron for natural looking highlights no matter what your hair colour; and a concentrated fruit acid complex - bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange and lemon - which contains naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids to promote smooth, healthy looking hair.

Use it for highlights with your flat iron or allover lightening with your blow dryer - either way, you can look forward to easy (non-orange) lightening!

Available now at Shoppers Drug Mart, Pharmaprix, Loblaws, Walmart and other grocery, drug and mass stores.

  1. I feel like pigs are flying outside of my window! A lightening product that will not turn my dark hair orange?!?!?! I'm literally jumping up and down in my chair!!! Getting this tonight!!!

    1. I know right?! Just keep in mind that with dark hair you are still going to go more of a copper shade than blonde, but it won't be the ugly orange you usually get with dark hair!

      Best, Lisamarie

  2. This sounds amazing! I'll keep a look out for it. I've been using those bleachy lightnening cremes, but it's a mess - hopefully this will be a convenient alternative..thanks :D

  3. My hair is really dark black so will it work for my hair

  4. Tried and love it! It really works

  5. tried it, got it in Shoppers cause it was on sale. $8.99
    it worked for my hair, it turned it like yeep, a lovely coppery colour! really please with it, just worried if it damaged my hair & i didnt notice... anyways, It got on my skin, bleached my skin a bit & stinged a bit. ( I'm asian - filipino - so my skin is quite tan. My hair is like reaaaalllly dark brown, close to black but not quite. ) I've never died my hair permanetly before so :) really happy with the results!
