Evaluating Scalp and Hair Sunscreen: Things to Consider

Protecting your scalp and hair from sun damage while also looking stylish can be a challenge. With so many sunscreens on the market, how do you choose the best option for your scalp? This is especially important for the older generations who may experience balding or thinning hair and need protection from harsh UV rays. The good news is that here at ZenonLife, we have created a sunscreen product specifically designed to protect your scalp and hair from the sun while promoting style and volume. In this article, we will go over the different aspects to consider when evaluating if you should put sunscreen on your scalp and hair.

We start with the product itself—Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 Protect, Style & Volumize. Not only does the sunscreen provide sunburn and skin cancer protection, it is also enriched with essential ingredients like antioxidants and amino acids that nourish your hair from root to tip. This prevents dry, brittle hair and encourages luscious, vibrant locks for added confidence and style. Additionally, our proprietary technology delivers incredible lift and volume to your hair.

Staying protected and stylish is especially important for those with sensitive skin. The Scalp & Hair Sunscreen contains safe and effective UV actives including Homosalate 6.38%, Octocrylene 6.22%, Octisalate 3.00%, Avobenzone 1.80%. Individual sensitivities vary, so it is important to patch test the sunscreen on a small area on your scalp and wait 24 hours before applying all over.

It is also important to consider the different ways in which you apply sunscreen to your scalp. Before applying the sunscreen, make sure to wet your hair first. This will ensure you get an even coverage and help with absorption. When applying sunscreen, start from the front of your head and carefully move to the back of your neck. Make sure to get every area of your scalp and to work quickly so the ingredients have enough time to set. Additionally, using an applicator brush is a great way to get an even application and can help you reach those tricky spots like behind your ears.

When you are finished applying the sunscreen, be sure to wait 4-5 minutes before styling your hair or putting on a hat. This will ensure the sunscreen is absorbed completely and will not budge when you move around. Also, it’s a good idea to reapply the sunscreen every two hours if you are out in the sun and after taking a dip in the pool.

Applying sunscreen to your scalp and hair is key to staying protected while looking stylish. By considering the sunscreen itself and proper application of the sunscreen, you can enjoy the sun worry-free and maintain the health of your scalp and hair.
