Q: I'm confused about all these sun-protection products out there. Does hair really get sunburned? Why should I use one?

Ouidad: UVA and UVB rays are damaging to the locks as well as the skin. Protecting your tresses and your scalp is a must! Always keep hair under wraps with prolonged sun exposure, either with a great brimmed hat or fashionable scarf. Also, I developed Ouidad Sun Shield Spray to instantly provide UV protection to hair with its exclusive cinnamidopropyltrimonium chloride ingredient, traditionally reserved for skin care usage. The small molecules of this ingredient absorb sun rays, as conditioning agents including quartz crystals, proteins, amino acids and antioxidants reflect sun damage away from the hair, keeping it moisturized. A breathable clear glaze that acts as a shield — protects hair from harsh elements — preserving the hair color and promoting healthy shiny curls.
