  • I bought the Bananan Boat Aloe After Sun Lotion because Banana Boat is a pretty reputable company for these kinds of products, and I've had some success with them in the past
  • Not only was I hesitant to put lotion directly onto my scalp because it would be incredibly hard to get out, and would make my head look greasy on a daily basis until the burn was gone, but I've not always had the best luck with products containing aloe, which actually tend to dry my skin out worse than it would've otherwise been if I'd left it alone
  • I stopped using it and wouldn't ever recommend it, regardless of it containing aloe, for a sunburn treatment

      As a very pale individual with baby blonde hair, I’ve always been prone to sun burns. It’s pretty much a standard that should I be leaving the house for an afternoon in the sun and surf, I need to lather up with sunblock spf 198 if it were available. I have, on occassion, however, underestimated my propensity to sunburn. I was recently camping with my husband and kids, and we took all the usual safety precautions, though I’m really the only one prone to easy burning. We even had a nice little picnic canopy up over our picnic table so we’d stay out of the sun, and where I could go to relax while the kids were off catching toads in the creek which

      is a decidedly NON feminine activity and something of which I tend to steer clear. When I WAS in the sun, I would lather on a spf 50 sunblock all over my face neck and shoulders, arms and legs… but what I didn’t understand was that you can even get a sunburn on your hair part! I actually had a friend who was camping with us suggest that I put on a hat because the top of my scalp was scaldingly red. I hadn’t even considered protecting the very part in my hair, because my nose and cheeks were thoroughly covered and I wasn’t getting red there at all, even after an hour in direct sun. But the next day, I was feeling the pain when my head was basically too sore to even wash with shampoo and cool water. I had to be very careful with it because it felt like my hair was going to fall out it was so painful.

      I bought the Bananan Boat Aloe After Sun Lotion because Banana Boat is a pretty reputable company for these kinds of products, and I’ve had some success with them in the past. It was affordable at $7, considering how large the bottle was. All I saw was “after sun” and figured this would be great to treat my burn. Not true at all. Not only was I hesitant to put lotion directly onto my scalp because it would be incredibly hard to get out, and ...

      would make my head look greasy on a daily basis until the burn was gone, but I’ve not always had the best luck with products containing aloe, which actually tend to dry my skin out worse than it would’ve otherwise been if I’d left it alone. My husband picked this up at the store for me when he realized how much pain and discomfort I was experiencing, and it was valid attempt.

      However, this product seemed to be more suited for keeping your “tan healhy and glowing” or some such nonsense, and didn’t at all treat the after effects of a sunburn. I’m sure if my loving husband had read the back of the bottle, he’d have realized it wasn’t to treat burns,

      because it did clearly state it was just supposed to moisturize skin and alleviate tightness and help maintain an even and beautiful looking tan, but there was really no mention at all of treating or alleviating the effects of a sunburn. I did use it, because it’s what we had, and as expected, it didn’t really work and did make my hair look greasy, which still somehow managing to actually dry out my scalp. By the end of the third day, I was actually experiencing dandruff that had nothing to do with the natural peeling process of the burn (which came a week later). I stopped using it and wouldn’t ever recommend it, regardless of it containing aloe, for a sunburn treatment. Save your money.
