Hair Shadz by Monimay {review}

I was offered the opportunity to review Hair Shadz by Monimay, and was happy for it.

I recieved the Dark Brown (it's named Paula) Hair Shadz:

Monimay Hair Shadz
Hair Shadz® is a revolutionary solution for the hair and scalp.
It has 3 in 1 capabilities and it’s all natural!
Root Blending
Masks roots from the 2nd to 5th week colorings.
A spectrum of 8 colors to choose from for suitable matches.
Dry Shampoo
Absorbs oil and prolongs the life of your hairstyle between shampoos.
Simply apply to oily areas of your hair, and Hair Shadz® absorbs oil and enhances hair color.
Sun Protection
Each application protects the scalp from harmful UVN|B and UVA sun rays.

This unique product is the ultimate multi-tasker! Hair Shadz is an ALL NATURAL micronized mineral sunscreen developed specifically for the scalp! With the wide selection of color choices and unique high quality applicator brush, the delivery to the hair and scalp are precise and mess free. This lightweight natural formula is great as a dry shampoo, it blends in re-growth in between hair colorings, adds volume, and also camouflages exposed scalp (caused by thinning hair), all while providing SPF 15 to the hair and scalp! Hair Shadz is available in 10 shades, as well as a translucent shade, which is called Sun Shadz. This extremely micronized translucent formula was designed for men and children.

Hair Shadz Brush-On Root Blending Sun Protecting Dry Shampoo - Refill Copper Red
When you remove the top cover, there is a makeup type brush at the top of the bottle.  It took me a minute to figure it out, but there is a silver twisty dial at the top, where you can choose 1 2 or 3 (actually, I, II or III gotta love roman numerals!) to decide how much you want dispensed.  Simply shake, and it will come out when you use the brush.  Rub it into your scalp, and viola! You're covered from the sun.

As you can see, it really does an amazing job covering your scalp.
I really found this product very easy to use and apply, it's easy to store, and the packaging is great.  I've used many makeup brushes that, once the cap is removed, it's nearly impossible to replace

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.

Monica enhanced her Hair Shadz® and Sun Shadz® products to include protection for the  scalp against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Hair Shadz® and Sun Shadz®, with its patented powder formula, and the easy application brush it provides protection on the scalp with every use.  Every man (golfer, hunter, hiker, etc.), woman and child will benefit from using Hair Shadz® and Sun Shadz®.

Hair Shadz (and Sun Shadz) are endorsed by the International Melanoma Foundation, licensed with PETA, and have a Dermatology signature of approval.

This is VERY important to me, as the mission of the maker of Hair Shadz is to promote cancer awareness.  My family's past has been riddled with cancer...many types, from breast cancer to lumps all over...  And my mom has been having symptoms of skin cancer lately. She's worked in the sun for over 30 years as a gardener, her skins changing and I worry.  So when this product came across the wire for me to review, I knew I wanted it.

You can find Hair Shadz and Sun Shadz products all over the web, including amazon.  You can also purchase directly from the MoniMay website.

You can follow MoniMay on Twitter, where you'll find current skin cancer rates, and all sorts of skin cancer fight posts frequently.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. Wow! What a great review! I love how you put so much good information in it.

We are PASSIONATE about our commitment to provide the very best in hair and skin care, designed to protect your scalp from the sun, mask thinning hair, and blend growing roots/gray hair.

  3. We love our Sun Shadz - next month we start swimming outdoors in a heated pool in Maine - can't wait to use it!

  4. What a great idea. My hair is thin and I have suffered from scalp sunburn for years. The only thing I would suggest is a higher spf. You need at least an spf of 30 to be really effective. I use a product with an spf of 100 on my face. Its not oily and does not clog pores, yet the protection is total.
