I’m a hair expert – blondes can go PINK in the sun if you're not careful, here's how to stop it
WITH spring in the air, the days of slathering on sunscreen are quickly approaching.
If you are sunscreen-obsessed, you may think you're well-protected from sun damage.
While that's true for your skin, your hair could be in serious trouble thanks to that sunscreen.
A hairstylist named Brynn Reed shared just how damaging sunscreen can be to hair, particularly those with blonde extensions.
In a video, she sprayed blonde extensions with two different types of sunscreen.
After some time, one extension turned orangey-pink, while the other stayed blonde.
In the video's caption, Reed explained that you must choose a mineral-based sunscreen that does not contain the chemical avobenzone to keep your blonde hair safe.
She added: "Avobenzone creates a chemical reaction with your extensions turning them salmon pink. This is not always reversible, so please check your SPF before applying!"
She then listed several extension-safe options such as the Beautycounter brand, Sunbum mineral sunscreen, Bare Republic mineral sunscreen, and the Up&Up mineral sunscreen from Target.
