I already posted about UV nail care a few days ago, but how about your hair?
As I dyed by hair darker again last weekend, I went to get new shampoo for colour-treated hair, replacing my Body Shop Rainforest Shine shampoo with the Radiance one. (I know, Body Shop shampoos aren't exactly cheap, but they're silicone-free and my hair likes them, plus I only use very little. Conditioner, however, is a different story. I use so much people might think I drink that stuff in the shower - ew! -, so I use a drugstore one with aloe vera (my absolute skincare love <3) and hibiscus that is also silicon-free. Btw, did you jump on the "no silicone!"-bandwagon yet?)
Anyway, after a while, a sales assistant came around and as I have lately become a bit more ingredient-savvy, I decided to ask him some questions. Like, why on earth does a shampoo claim to have UV filters when you rinse it after 2 minutes anyway? He claimed, of course, that the ingredients stay in the hair, but I neither believe that nor do I want to have the remains of my shampoo in my hair. >.<
In my humble opinion, UV protection shampoo is nonsense. I did, however, buy the detangling spray from the same line, which also claims UV protection (I checked the ingredients, it really seems to offer at least some protection - it also has aloe vera, although not in the first third of the ingredients - and as it will be sprayed on after washing, I guess I can believe its claims. Or what do you think?
Do you protect your hair from the sun? The best thing, of course, would be to wear a hat, but I don't feel like doing that every day. (Especially as I tend to forget them when I take them off. ^^;;;)
Btw, after skin, nails and hair, I wonder what's next? Hmmm... my teeth are unprotected when I open my mouth while being outdoors. Oh no!!! XD
