This hair mist contains a multi-purpose formula that protects against UV, salt, chlorine, dryness, color fade and deep damage. Spritz onto wet or dry hair, before and during sun exposure, focusing on the ends. Just like any sunblock, the mist needs to be reapplied for consistent protection. Shake the bottle before you spritz to mix up the ingredients.
