The Best Hair Serum for Sun Protection
I was recently sent a small sample of the Yarok Feed Your Sunshine Serum from Beautyhabit and it came just in time to accompany me on my trip to Lake Tahoe!
I used it nearly every single day I was there as I spent a lot of time in the sun, hiking and swimming, and it worked brilliantly.
If you’re unfamiliar with Yarok, they’re a hair care company which develop natural and organically formulated hair products. They have a nice lineup of shampoos, conditioners, styling and treatment products.
The Feed Your Sunshine Serum is meant to help protect your hair from UV damage done to hair by the sun. It also doubles as a heat protectant when blow drying and straightening hair as well as from chlorine and ocean saltwater so it’s quite a versatile product!
Formulated with natural protective plant ingredients, this serum includes jojoba oil, black currant seed oil, aloe vera oil, tea tree, geranium, and lemongrass to help protect, heal, fortify, and condition hair while forming a barrier between your hair follicles and the sun, salt, or chlorine.
To use it, you simply apply 3 droppers full of the serum and massage into your hair before swimming in the lake, ocean or pool. This protects it from damage done by the sun, sea salt, and/or chlorine. Afterwards, you re-apply the same amount to your hair to condition your hair further and leave on for 10 minutes. You then shampoo and condition as usual.
I used this nearly every day at Lake Tahoe and I noticed that the infamous “lake hair” was greatly diminished. My hair didn’t feel dry or frazzled, frizz was barely there if at all, and my hair never felt brittle or dry. On the contrary, it actually felt more hydrated, softened, and conditioned than usual! Also, as a side note, I found that this serum smells incredibly similar to the Rainwater Botanicals Skin Repair Serum (meant for the face obv.) which I really enjoyed. It’s an incredibly sweet, yet slightly herbal scent that’s so pleasant and enjoyable in the summer.
Definitely give this hair serum a go if you frequently go swimming in the ocean, pool or lake and want something to keep your hair in tip top shop. Alternatively, if you spend long hours in the sun, this might also be a good choice to prevent UV damage and aging done to the hair by the sun. It could possibly help prevent aging in the hair and consequent gray hairs as well as hair loss. I wouldn’t call it a “growth” serum, but it’s a great addition to any routine which could use nourishment and protection and I personally think it’s the best hair serum for sun protection. Lastly, I think this works really well as a heat protectant if you straighten and/or blow dry or curl your hair often.
