Sun oils for hair
Well, I was not really prepared to my latest trip to abroad. I mean I travel quiet lot and this time as well –of course- I did everything like usual but I thought to be at my destination latest at midnight. It could happen. It should happen. But 🙂 life decides. My plane was late. Not just 10-20 minutes but almost 3 hours which means to miss the last bus to the little town I wanted to go. Instead of being with my family I’m sitting in the airport and writting my new post here and now. Why not? Let’s use this time for something I love. Okay, I know it was not about hair care at all so far, not about UV protection for hair… sorry for that 🙂 I just wanted to shout it out but I get back to hair care and I’m gonna write my new post about sun oils for hair.
This topic – UV protection for hair – is like a little series so if you missed the previous posts but you want to read more than just sun oils for hair you can scroll down and read about it general or you can read the post about shampoos with UV filter and UV protective hair sprays.
Today (actually tonight, at the airport 🙂 ) I write about sun oils for hair. Such products have been on the market for years all the same I have tried it only once before. I was not satisfied with the result because it made my hair look wet and I felt it to be thinner. Maybe it is because of the type of my hair. I am not that lucky to have a fine head of hair so I need to be careful about choosing the products I use. I don’t say that sun oils can be used only for really fine and thick hair because the product range today has changed a lot. So I made other tests. Just for an example Clarins Sunscreen Care Oil Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a waterproof solution with SPF30 both for skin and hair. I like this one because of making my hair silky and because I can use this one bottle also on my skin. A practical way of providing UV protection for hair and body too.
Another favourite of mine is Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer, 8.5 Ounce. This product is much more than „just” UV protection for hair. It can also help to prevent hair damages made by straighteners or blow driers. It protects also from heat so it is something for the whole year.
But maybe you are fed up with using too many different kinds of products all over your body and you think that sun oils for hair is just another group of the chemicals we use. From one point of view you may be right given all of them contain some artifical components. Some of us even have allergy to them. The good new is to have some natural solutions for UV protection as well. Here are some examples with the estimated UV factor. So they not just nourish your hair and scalp but can also help about UV protection for hair.
- olive oil (SPF 7,549)
- cocconut oil (SPF 7,119)
- peppermint oil (SPF 6,668)
- melissa oil (SPF 6,282)
- castor oil (SPF 5,687)
- levander oil (SPF 5,624)
As you can see if it’s sun oil for hair you can choose form ready to use products or you can try some natural solutions. The good side of using the ready ones is being convenient. You can take them with you and use them whenever and wherever you want to provide as long protection as possible.
