Redken Color Extend Sun SPF 12

2. Redken Color Extend Sun SPF 12

"This is a great product to use if you're going to be spending a whole day in the sun. If you're planning on hanging around by the pool, the beach or even spending the day outdoors at an amusement park, it might be a good idea to spray your hair with this before sun exposure. The same way you apply sunscreen on your body, you apply sun protection to your hair. This is currently the only product in Canada that offers sun protection to prevent damage." - MB

"This rinse-out conditioner is very hydrating and it's made to control even the most rebellious frizz. Since frizzy hair is more susceptible to sun damage, using this conditioner to keep that hair hydrated and smooth is a god idea. It will then be less likely to burn in the sun." - MB

"I used this product everyday when I was vacationing down South and I loved it. After washing your hair, spray this leave-in treatment to help further repair the damage caused by the sun during your day at the beach. It'll make your hair easier to comb through so you won't break any weak hair. It repairs hair in the same way aloe vera gel heals the skin after a sunburn." - MB
