Nios Shield gel offers year-round protection for hair with SPF 15 sunscreen. A Moroccan argan oil-infused formula together with Vitamins E and B5 ensure sexy, vibrantly healthy hair while the SPF sunscreen protects hair color and texture and scalp sunburn. The gel styles with a medium-strong hold, smells great, and does not flake or contain phthalates, synthetic dyes, nano-particles, sulfates, parabens, or PABA. All the benefits of multiple products packed into one sleek-looking tube! Who it's for: the medium-firm hold is designed for styling short hair or for adding more volume to long hair by applying the gel at the base of the hair. It is not meant for areas with extensive thinning as it's formulated to style hair; for those areas, use Nios's Leave-in-conditioner.
