Hair Shadz & Sun Shadz by Monimay, Inc Review

I got a great product that I had no idea even existed until I got to review this. It is a sunscreen for the top of your head! Can you believe that! It's called Sun Shadz SPF 15 Scalp Protection from a company called MoniMay, Inc. My shade is Clear (shea) M2.

It's almost really clear and you can barely see it so with my light hair and the lightness of this color, I really saw no difference in the color of my hair, which is what you want. You don't want anyone to see any difference in the color of your hair while using this product. I can imagine someone looking at me with their mouth open and saying, "what did you say was on your hair?", I said sunscreen for your hair. Probably laugh at me, but that's okay, at least I am protecting the top of my head from the sun and the possible chance of skin cancer.

It really is interesting the way it works, too. It is a pull down thing that shows the brush and you use that to go thru the top of your head and then when you are finished you pull the whole bottle up and it closed the brush inside and you cap it off! Really a great idea. Don't know why someone hasn't done that with makeup brushes. I hate using those that you can't get back in that container.

Here are the specs on Sun Shadz:

Here is what I found in the About Us section:
Monica May Sanders is an expert hair colorist with over 15 years of experience and recipient of many professional accolades. She has been recognized in Vogue, Seventeen, and Cut & Style Magazine. She was selected Best of Phoenix colorist by the New Times Magazine. Over the years, two questions have been asked repeatedly by her clientele. "What can I do for my oily scalp to prolong my hair style?"  
She recommended using talcum powder to make the hair look cleaner and routinely used this trick herself with much success. But, with dark hair, the talcum powder dulled the color and health and safety of talcum powder was big concern ( as excessive exposure to Talc could cause lung cancer ) .  
Over time she decided that it would be great to have a color enhancing powder that could be applied with an easy applicator brush. The second question asked repeatedly: "What can I do to cover my new hair roots in between colorings?" She realized if she expanded the range of colors the product would also blend hair root as well as absorb the oil. The innovative Hair Shadz® and Sun Shadz® was created with help of cosmetic formulator Amour Cosmetic Mfg ( and human clinical testing and consumer marketing research AMA laboratory Inc. (  
It is everyone's backup plan to shampooing , coloring and protecting their hair and scalp for those times they can't. In 1999, Monica lost her Mother to malignant Melanoma. The original source of the Cancer started on her scalp. Monica researched the issue and discovered how common this disease is. Researchers have proven the scalp hair is not necessarily protecting ones scalp from harmful sun radiation .  
The sun damages unprotected scalps severely. Since people want to avoid putting greasy sun block in their hair, many people develop cancerous moles on their scalps from lack of proper sun protection.

I'd love to try something like this!

Lauren Roch said...

This product sounds awesome! What a great idea. I often get sunburned on my scalp in the summer because I forget to put sunscreen there.

Kayla Rice said...

Wow I have never even thought of sunscreen for the top of my head but I need to. I will have to ck this out.

Ari T said...

Wow, interesting idea. I didn't realize it was a coating, but it makes sense since it has to stay on your hair strands. No wonder it requires lots of shades!

Heather Bingham said...
