Frequently Asked Questions on How Can I Put Sunscreen in My Hair?

We get it – sunscreen is a vital part of your skin’s protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays! But did you know it can also help protect your scalp and hair from sun damage? With the right sunscreen, you can stay protected while looking stylish. Here at ZenonLife, we want to help you find the perfect sunscreen for your hair’s health and style needs. That’s why we’ve put together a collection of Frequently Asked Questions on how to put sunscreen in your hair so you can keep your scalp safe and healthy.

Q: Is sunscreen necessary for hair?

A: Absolutely! While you may think of sunscreen as something that needs to be applied only to your skin, the truth is that it can also protect your scalp and hair from sun damage. Sunburn and breakage aren’t the only risks that come with exposure to the sun’s UV rays – if your hair is exposed to the sun for too long, you can also experience sun atrophy ( breakage), split ends, and bleached-out color. To help prevent these unwanted consequences, make sure you’re protecting your hair with a sunscreen specifically formulated for the scalp and hair.

Q: What ingredients should I look for when buying sunscreen for my hair?

A: To make sure your hair is getting the best possible protection, look for a sunscreen that contains antioxidants, amino acids, and nutrients that can nourish your hair from the root to the tip. The active ingredients in our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen – Homosalate, octocrylene, octisalate, and avobenzone – provide safe and effective sun protection. Plus, our proprietary blend of collagen and silk amino acids, niacinamide, green tea extract, coffee extract, licorice root extract, microalgae extract, and safflowerseed oil deliver incredible lift and volume to your locks and keep your hair hydrated.

Q: How do I apply sunscreen to my hair?

A: When it comes to applying sunscreen to your scalp and hair, it’s important to use the right technique. Start by dividing your hair into sections, then apply a generous amount of sunscreen to each section, working it through from the roots to the ends. Make sure you reach the scalp, behind the ears, and the nape of the neck as these areas are especially vulnerable to sunburn. Once you’ve finished applying sunscreen to each section, massage the lotion onto your entire head, focusing on the parts most exposed to the sun. Finally, comb your hair through and you’re good to go!

Q: Is it safe to use sunscreen on my hair every day?

A: We recommend using sunscreen on your scalp and hair every time you leave the house to ensure you’re getting the optimal sun protection. Our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen contains ingredients specifically designed to nourish and protect your hair from sun damage, so it’s perfectly safe to use it every day.

Q: Can I use sunscreen on my hair if I color it?

A: Absolutely! In fact, it’s even more important to use if you color your hair, since the sun’s UV rays can prevent dyed hair from retaining its color. Our sunscreen is specially formulated to nourish and protect dyed hair while helping preserve and intensify your hair’s color.

Q: Can I use sunscreen on my hair if I swim?

A: Yes, you can! Our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen is water-resistant, so it will protect your hair even when you go for a dip in the pool. To make sure you’re getting the optimal protection, apply a generous amount before you swim and reapply generously after you get out of the water.

Q: Is it okay to use sunscreen on my hair even if I don’t have much hair?

A: Yes, sunscreen is still important even if you don’t have a lot of hair on your scalp. Even without much hair, UV rays can still cause sunburn, but our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen can help protect those areas and give you a healthier, worry-free headspace.

Q: Will sunscreen make my hair look greasy?

A: Not when you use our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen! Our proprietary technology delivers incredible lift and volume, and our ingredients will nourish your hair to help keep it looking beautiful and vibrant all day long. Plus, it’s quickly absorbed by your scalp and hair so you don’t have to worry about greasy locks.

Q: Can I use regular sunscreen on my hair?

A: While it’s technically okay to use regular sunscreen on your scalp and hair, it’s not as effective as a sunscreen specifically formulated for your scalp and hair. Regular sunscreen does not contain the nourishing ingredients found in our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen that protect and restore your hair from sun exposure, while delivering incredible lift and volume for a truly stylish look.

We know you want the best for your scalp and hair, which is why we developed our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen to deliver effective protection and nourishment for a healthier and style-savvy you. Get ready to have beautiful, healthy hair that’s protected from the sun and styled to perfection.
