Sun oils for hair.
I was not really prepared for my latest trip to abroad. I mean I travel a 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 writing 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 write it out, but I get back to hair care and I’m going to 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.
UV protection with sun oils.
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 being thinner. Maybe it is because of the type of my hair. I am not that lucky to have strong 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 thick hair because the product range today has changed a lot. So I made other tests. Just for example, there are sunscreen sprays as a waterproof solution for both skin and hair. I like this type 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.
UV protection and heat protection.
Well, some products are much more than just UV protection for hair. They can also help to prevent hair damages made by straighteners or blow driers. They can protect also from heat, so you can find something for the whole year. But maybe you are fed up with using too many different kinds of products all over your body. From one point of view you may be right given many of them may contain some artificial components. Some of us even have an allergy to them. The good news is to have some natural solutions for UV protection as well. Here are some examples with the estimated UV factor. So they do not just nourish your hair and scalp but can also help about UV protection for hair.
Protective natural oils:

- Peppermint oil (SPF 6,668)

As you can see if it’s sun oil for hair you can choose from 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. Just don’t forget, enjoy summer and stay protected.
