One of the things I always advice people, is to protect their hair against the sun. Sun can be really damaging to hair… Just see what it can do to old fabric or old paintings.
Hair can’t repair itself and you can’t out-condition the damage once it’s done, so it’s important to protect it.
I always dump about a tablespoon of real SPF with physical sunblock for skin into my 200 ml leave in conditioner bottle. That’s about how much it can take without changing texture or making my hair greasy. It probably doesn’t add up to a lot of SPF, but a little is better than none.Even though I try to protect my own hair from sun, I still have some fading at the ends. Oh well. I still do my best that it won’t be worse than it already is. (One of the reasons I keep trimming my ends!)
The Schwarzkopf Bonacure is so far my favourite line for the SPF.
It’s affordable, available at netshops and has a nice smell. How much SPF is actually has, I don’t know though.
I mix the creamy one into my leave in conditioner and dust the spray all over my finished updo.
