Have you ever thought about sun protection for your hair and scalp while traveling to sunny climes? Unfortunately, I have learned the hard way! There have been times when being out in the sun -- warm or cold -- I've had sunburns on my scalp. It doesn't take much exposure, either. Not only is it uncomfortable and unsafe, but also, can interfere with your ability to "get your roots done". That happened to me one summer! I'll always remember the salon owner who shook her head at me and said, "Not today, Princess." I was furious! But I had little sunburn blisters and she wasn't going to mess with it. The same exactly thing can happen to guys, by the way. Fortunately, there's a new category of product on the market: Nios Shield. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!

Here's what they say about it:

One perfect day, we got ready for some sun: we packed our beach towel and volleyball, threw on cool shades, and applied a generous amount of sunscreen over every imaginable surface - or so we thought. After a day of Frisbee and food, we went home to realize that those glorious sun beams bleached our hair and burnt a part of our bodies that we barely knew existed - our scalps!

We rushed to the store, eager to find a hair care product with sunscreen, but were only able to find ones with some UV filters (the equivalent of SPF 0.5!) and none with actual SPF.

So we pulled up our sleeves and went to it, crafting a line of hair-care products with built-in SPF for great looking hair, long-lasting color, and scalp protection to boot. Realizing that hair needs daily protection even when not at the beach, we added Moroccan Oil, Vitamin B, and wheat protein to ensure year-round healthy hair.

The Whipped Hair Gel is a light-weight, modern gel. Don't think at all about spiky '80's products! Rather, think modern sheen and light control. Men will definitely love it and look more au currant while protecting their scalp.

I was just reading in a fashion magazine about how, if you want glamorous and modern looking tresses, you have to put leave-in conditioner mid-shaft to ends, then a hair oil on ends. Nios Shield Leave-In Conditioner should be worked in from scalp down, but it's light enough to handle that task and not weigh down your style.
