We all know how important sunscreen is for our skin, but not many people think about the effect the sun has on hair. SPF sprays are a great way to protect yourself from harsh summer heat, and we found three great options for you to try as the weather warms up.
Shiseido Refreshing Sun Protection Spray with SPF 16, $30: Made for body and hair, this spray with SPF 16 provides waterproof protection without the sticky feel you might get from other sunscreens.
Paul Mitchell Color Protect Locking Spray, $8: While this option doesn’t contact SPF it contains ingredients like sunflower extract which will help protect your hair from UVA/UVB rays. This spray is also great for protecting your colour, as sun exposure can oxidize hair and make it look rusty.
Clarins Sun Care Spray Radiant Oil with SPF 6, $30: The Clarins Sun Care Spray is water and perspiration resistant, and uses sunflower oil to hydrate and protect hair. The spray also protects hair from drying in the sun or while in salt water, all while providing SPF coverage.
Redken Color Extend Sun Solar Screen with SPF 12, $20: The SPF coverage in the Redken Color Extend protects the hair from damage or fading colour while further protecting the hair from UVA/UVB exposure. With the second highest SPF in this collection, the Redken is a great option for those with dyed hair who want to protect their colour.
Plenty of great options for sun-safe hair this summer.
