REVLON SUN CARE HYDRA SCREEN VS. REDKEN COLOUR EXTEND SUN SPARKLING SHIELD
I have finally found an affordable hair sun protectant. I think since hair products with spf are not too common yet, they are not readily available- especially not affordable ones. The first one I used was the Redken UV protection spray which has now been discontinued. It looks like the Redken product down below, but with a different name and ingredient list.
I went to the hair shop today and discovered that the Redken Colour Extent range has been updated again. There is now a third version (I don't know if there's been more before) called Redken Sun Extend Solar Screen SPF 12. With that comes a mousse called Redken Color Extend Sun Take Cover Mousse SPF 25. An actual SPF factor on the bottle and one as high as 25 sounds great,
but they are soo pricey- around £16.
So here is what I found, REVLON Professional Sun Care Hydra Screen (Sun hydro protective hair spray). This is a tiny bottle of 50 ml, which I really love. Partly because it was only £3 and partly because it's so handy to bring with you in your hand bag :) The full size bottle, I think it's 150-200 ml was only £7 which is still a great price!
They both contain silicones which I normally wont use in my hair, (or my skin), but if it can protect my hair from the sun, so be it. Plus there are no natural alternatives :( One big disadvantage to the Revlon one is that it contains parabens.
I like both of these, I wont post a conclusion or rating, I think what I've written speaks for itself.
I really think that spf for your hair is just as important as it is for your skin- so don't forget it ladies.
Do you use SPF in your hair?
