*** WHY SHOULD WE PROTECT OUR HAIR?***
Most people think that UVA & UVB rays from the sun can only cause damage to your skin but it can also have a big effect on your hair as well. Pro-longed exposure to the sun means it can damage your hair from root to tip leaving your hair dry, brittle, frizzy, split/broken ends, weakened and thinner hair and it can also fade hair colour as well. Of course you can use a hat to protect your hair from getting damaged but you can also buy special shampoos, sprays and conditioners to help protect your hair from any damage.
The spray comes in a small bottle (50ml) which means it's perfect for carrying around in a suitcase or bag. The bottle is yellow and has a red coloured pump spray which is then protected by a clear plastic lid. On the back on the bottle there are the directions for use, a list of ingredients and other information such as contact information. The Spray by Charles Worthington will leave you hair soft, strong, supple and shiny whilst protecting your hair from the sun.
The spray is part of the takeaways collection which is smaller sized bottles perfect for travelling. Other takeaway bottles include different shampoos and conditioners and other styling sprays as well.
I bought this small bottle from boots which cost me £1.80. I have also seen these in Superdrug as well, but I am unsure of how much they are. Prices may vary from store to store.
***USING THE SPRAY***
You can use the spray on either wet or dry hair, how-ever I used this on my hair when it was damp and then blow dried it as normal. The spray is clear and when spraying it into my hair you can smell a pleasant smell, which also smells slightly sweet. The spray pump on the bottle is very good and sprays evenly all over the hair. I only used 2-4 pumps of this as I didn't want to use too much and my hair to become greasy.
After spraying this into my damp hair, I went through my hair with a wide toothed comb and style it as normal using the hair dryer. After styling my hair I did notice that it made my hair very shiny, smooth and soft. I tend to wash my hair every 2 days and I thought I was going to have to wash this the following day increase it made my hair greasy, how-ever I was surprised that the following morning my hair was still smooth and shiny and it didn't feel or look greasy at all.
I never used this spray on dry hair so I can't comment if this still makes your hair soft, smooth and shiny, how-ever I'm sure it does seeing as it left my hair looking so good.
I thought this spray was fantastic. It left my hair glossy and feeling soft and smooth. It not only made my hair look great and healthy but it also protected my hair from the sun. This product is fantastic and has a nice light, sweet smell to it. If you are going on holiday or even if you want to protect your hair from sun damage I would highly recommend this spray. As the bottle is small it can easily fit into a bag or even a pocket and you can spray it onto dry hair which means it's great if you need to spray some in your hair whilst you are out. Of course this doesn't protect your scalp from being burnt so the best option is to ideally wear a hat in the sun. Give this fantastic product a try!
