My Lucky Sunscreen Switch-Up
By Erica Pearlman |
A few weeks ago, when I was cruising the Caribbean on a family vacation, I made a groundbreaking beauty discovery that has forever revolutionized my appreciation for sunscreen. Upon going to style my hair one night and reaching for what I thought was hair product, I accidentally grabbed Neutrogena Healthy Defense Oil-Free Sunblock Lotion instead. Oops! While this may seem like an easily avoidable mishap, I had previously transferred all of my liquid beauty products into travel-size bottles, making it hard to tell what was what. And, the lotion's lightweight, non-greasy texture made that much more likely to be confused with a balmy hair-styling lotion. It wasn't until after I slathered my locks with the sunscreen that I realized what I had done. But when my hair dried, I was left with perfectly tousled, frizzless ringlets that exuded tremendous body and shape, minus the typical crunchiness that many gels and mousses leave behind.
Upon finally washing my hair, the sunblock washed out effortlessly, leaving my strands silkier than ever, and with more moisture. Now all I have left to do is use it as it's intended!
