Sun Shadz by Monimay

I am excited to share with you the new product I was lucky enough to get to try! I was able to try the new product called Sun Shadz by Monimay. Sun Shadz is an all natural sun screen for your scalp. I was never truly aware of how prominent scalp cancer is becoming. However, if you truly sit and think about it I think you would agree that most people that use sunscreen tend to use it everywhere on their body EXCEPT their scalp. After all, who wants all that greasy, oily substance in their hair? Well if you are like me then you agree that greasy and oily are not terms that you would like associated with your hair. However I have been recently trying to be as safe as possible when it comes to the sun and my skin. Well that is where this awesome product comes in. Sun Shadz and Hair Shadz are actually sunscreen for your hair that is a powder you apply directly to the roots and scalp. When you buy the product from the Monimay site it comes with the powder and a built in soft bristle brush that allows you to apply it easily and quickly. The other great part about this product is that it is an all natural mineral powder. Which means not only can women use it, men and children can use it as well!

As most of you know I live in Texas and last week we had a few actually HOT days. The sun was out and blaring down on us. I happened to decide to take my kids to the park one day so we could play and have a picnic. We turned out going around 10:00 AM and stayed until about 2:00 PM. I used the clear (shea) Sun Shadz on all of our scalps and then also applied sunscreen to the kids' faces and shoulders. I love how the Sun Shadz didn't make our hair look greasy or matted down. It actually made our hair look fuller and feeling soft. By the time we woke up the next morning, our scalps were all burn free and so were the kids' faces. My face on the other hand was red and tender on my nose and on my cheekbones.

You can order the Sun Shadz and/or the Hair Shadz right off the Monimay website. They sell for a price of $29.95. The Hair Shadz are actually colored in ordered to match your hair color.
