Frequently Asked Questions on Sunscreen for Hair Parting

As we age, our scalp changes, and balding is common among men over the age of 40. But even if you’re not balding, the sun’s harmful UV rays can still affect your head, potentially resulting in sunburns, skin cancer, and hair damage. The simple solution? Apply enough sunscreen on your scalp and part your hair to protect your skin.

Unfortunately, traditional sunscreen isn’t always designed to cover both the head and scalp. This is why we developed our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40, which has been formulated specifically to protect and volumize the hair while also shielding the scalp from sunburn and skin cancer-causing UVA and UVB rays.

Now let’s take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions we get about how to use our sunscreen for maximum protection, comfort, and style.

What is Scalp & Hair Sunscreen?

Scalp & Hair Sunscreen is an innovative skin care product developed to protect the scalp and seal in the hair's natural moisture, preventing further damage from sun exposure. Its active ingredients are used to prevent sunburn and skin cancer while also nourishing and strengthening the hair and adding noticeable volume. With its proprietary blend of collagen and silk amino acids, enriching antioxidants, and its patented actives, Scalp & Hair Sunscreen offers superior defense and style.

How Often Should I Apply Scalp & Hair Sunscreen?

Scalp & Hair Sunscreen should be applied liberally and evenly to clean, dry skin 30 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply at least every two hours—or more, if you've been swimming or if you’ve been sweating heavily—to remain protected. Make sure to pay special attention to the scalp where the hair has parted.

How Do I Apply Scalp & Hair Sunscreen?

Before applying Scalp & Hair Sunscreen, be sure to wash and dry your scalp and hair. Take an adequate amount of sunscreen and apply it evenly and generously, especially to parts that are heavily exposed to daylight. Make sure the sunscreen is well absorbed before you part your hair. Your skin should look and feel smooth after application.

Do I Need to Use Special Gloves When Applying Sunscreen?

No, you do not need to use special gloves when applying sunscreen. However, you should use your hands to part your hair and ensure that the sunscreen has been evenly applied, especially to the hair parting.

Does Scalp & Hair Sunscreen Cause Any Irritation?

Scalp & Hair Sunscreen is formulated to prevent any irritation. However, if you notice irritation, discontinue use and contact a skin care professional.

Can Scalp & Hair Sunscreen Discolor Or Stain My Hair?

No, Scalp & Hair Sunscreen has been designed specifically to be colorless and non-staining.

Can Scalp & Hair Sunscreen Be Used On Other Body Parts?
