♥ Hair Sun Protectants REVLON VS. REDKEN


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?

  1. I don't use spf in my hair! I know I really should, im hoping the natural coconut oil I use can provide my hair with some protection from the sun, but I think it's wise for me to get a product that is specifically for hair sun protectants!

    Great post, if it wasn't for this post I wouldn't of remembered to get me some protection either haha

  2. I've always wanted to use SPF in my hair, but I haven't really come across any product to use. I'll be keeping an eye out for the Revlon one! xx

  3. Wow, I didn't even know Revlon had a professional range... and I didn't know they had hair products, except hair dyes?! I'm do dumb ahah! I don't use SPF on my hair, I prefer wearing a hat or cap, but because I recently switch to burgundy, I might have to be even more careful... great post!

  4. I have never used a SPF on my hair BUT I should because my hair gets so dry after being out in the sun for a while

  5. Great review! I don't use a sunscreen product but I do use macadamia nut oil in my hair which has an spf of 6-8. So far it's made my hair rather silky ;)
