Ever have that greasy hair problem from applying sunscreen to your scalp? Or even worse, a huge burn from not applying SPF at all? I know I have! In the last few years I’ve gotten more diligent about applying sunscreen to my scalp but I absolutely hate how it ends up making my hair all greasy. I’ve tried the lotions, the sprays, and they all leave my hair feeling weighed down, greasy, and gross!
Well you can imagine my excitement when I found out there is a wonderful All-Natural powder SPF product on the market that you can use to apply sunscreen to your scalp, and as an added bonus, it actually works as a dry shampoo too (thanks to the powder that soaks up oils in the hair and scalp)!
I couldn’t wait to try out my Sun Shadz by Monimay when it came! What I soon learned was that not only does it protect the scalp from the sun and work as a dry shampoo. but it also masks roots when your hair color is growing out, or worse, those dreaded gray hairs are coming in. How fabulous is that?! While my hair isn’t colored, and luckily grays are at a minimum, so I couldn’t test that part, I did test out Sun Shadz as as dry shampoo and sunscreen!
While its not the sunniest time of year, the sun actually was out the last week, so I opened up my Sun Shadz, shook it well, then used the brush to brush it into my scalp and the top few inches of my hair.
I loved how easy it was too use and since it was the day after I washed my hair, I could see it soak up the grease too! It is light and airy, and has a nice fresh scent. it only took a minute to apply and was not noticable in my hair at all!
While winter is not the best time of year to test SPF, at least where I live, I used my Sun Shadz everyday before my dog walk for 45 minutes outside in the sun, and no burn, pink, or tanning of the scalp of any kind! Yay, I’m throwing out my old sunblock right now!
Because I have dry, damaged hair, I try to only shampoo twice a week.. Yeah I know its kind of gross, but I found with the help of my Sun Shadz, you couldn’t even tell! These pictures are after…wait for it…4 DAYS of not shampooing! I know, I know, that is really pretty bad, but I really wanted to test this product to the limit! I applied the Sun Shadz once everyday (before my dog walk) and voila!
Doesn’t look very greasy does it? I think it looks more like 2nd day hair then 4 DAY hair! Granted, I didn’t dare wear my hair down because by this point the back of my head was really starting to look super greasy!
I loved using this product. I noticed a big difference the first day I tried it. I put my hair up in a high bun to sleep and when I pulled it out the next day, my hair looked like it has just been washed it and had been 2 days! I did wear it down that day! It looked absolutely amazing!
Well, I’m sure many of you are as excited to try this product as I was! No more greasy summer scalp but you will still get the SPF you need to stay safe! And if you have your hair colored or grays peeking out, you will really love this product and how well it will extend time between colorings for you!
