But we also know you may have questions when it comes to choosing sun protection – especially since it isn’t the same as slathering sunscreen on the rest of your body. We’re here to answer those questions and make sure you’re well informed before you buy.
Does Hair Spray Offer UV Protection?
Yes, some hair sprays offer UV protection. Generally, these UV protecting hair sprays are formulated with ingredients that work to shield your hair and scalp from harmful UV rays. These ingredients could include UV-absorbing sunscreen actives, antioxidants, or other beneficial ingredients that are designed to protect your hair from sun damage.
At ZenonLife, we’ve taken UV-protection one step further. Our scalp and hair sunscreen uses a proprietary blend of sunscreen actives, amino acids, and antioxidants to both protect and nourish your scalp and strands from sun exposure.
How Much UV Protection Should I Use?
The answer differs for everyone, depending on the environment in which you’ll be exposing your hair and scalp to the sun. If you’re planning to be outside for an extended period of time over the course of the day, it’s best to apply sunscreen every two hours.
It’s also a good practice to reapply after every dip in the pool or after you’ve gone for a swim or taken a shower.
If you plan to apply sunscreen less often, make sure that your product contains higher levels of UV protection like the Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 from ZenonLife. This product is designed to provide up to 80 minutes of water resistance.
What Ingredients Does Hair Spray Contain?
Hair sprays designed to provide UV protection often contain a blend of active ingredients, as well as other botanical extracts that are known to nourish and strengthen the hair.
At ZenonLife, we formulate our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen with a broad-spectrum UV protection available in both SPF 30 and SPF 40. This sunscreen is fortified with collagen and silk amino acids as well as chock full of rich antioxidants such as niacinamide, green tea extract, coffee extract, licorice root extract, and microalgae extract.
In addition, this sun protection hair spray is also infused with safflower seed oil and green tea oil and powered with safe and effective UV actives Homosalate 6.38%, Octocrylene 6.22%, Octisalate 3.00%, Avobenzone 1.80%.
What Is The Best Way To Apply Hair Spray?
For best results, it’s best to spray your scalp and hair liberally with the sunscreen. Be sure to separate your hair into small sections to ensure that all of your scalp and strands are adequately covered. Once you’ve applied the product, comb it through to evenly disperse the spray over your strands.
For any areas that have been missed, use your hands to manually spread the product over your scalp, ensuring coverage for four more sections of scalp. Be sure to part your hair accordingly, as you don’t want to miss any patches of skin that are exposed to the sun’s UV rays.
What Are The Benefits of Using Hair Spray With UV Protection?
Using a hair spray with UV protection will guarantee that your scalp and hair are shielded from the sun’s ray and, as a result, minimize the risk of sunburn and skin cancer. But the benefits don’t stop there.
Our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen contains a proprietary blend of amino acids and antioxidants that nourish your scalp and strands while moisturizing the scalp and providing superior lift and volume. As a result, you’ll have beautiful, bouncy locks that turn heads wherever you go.
