Homemade Sunscreen for the Hair with Natural Oils
*This post contains affiliate links!
Previously, I have shared one of my favorite homemade sunscreen recipes for the whole body which is toxin-free and eco-friendly.
But more often than not, we tend to forget about the other important parts of the body which also need proper sun protection!
I am talking about the hair.
To maintain a beautiful, soft, and strong mane, we need to regularly take care of it with natural substances in the form of various carrier and essential oils with proven sun-blocking properties.
That is why I have prepared for you a special homemade sunscreen recipe which can be applied as a simple beach mask! Use it daily during the intense sun exposure and you will avoid burning the hairs and the splitting of the ends.
As a wonderful side effect, your mane will become silky soft, strong and shiny!
Let’s get to the recipe!
Homemade Sunscreen Oil Blend for Hair Protection
Mix all ingredients in a double boiler and stir until they melt and blend completely.
Store the crème in a proper container.
Why these carrier oils in particular?
I have chosen these ingredients for one simple reason – their natural sun-blocking properties! Let’s take a look!
Coconut butter can have a natural SPF between 2 and 10.
Cold pressed olive oil can protect your whole body with an SPF also between 2 and 10.
Also, the oil extracted from soybeans can have a natural SPF of 10.
The sunblock factor of the avocado oil can reach as high as 15!
Wheat germ oil has an SPF around 20!
Combining these precious compounds we have the perfect homemade sunscreen blend for the whole body – from head to toe!
