Scalp health is vital skin health.

With UV radiation from the sun being the most important factor in skin damage and skin cancer, it becomes increasingly important to protect the scalp and hair with an effective sunscreen. To best protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun, you should look for a sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection- meaning it offers protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Additionally, it should come with sun protection factors (SPFs) of 30 or above, which will protect the scalp and hair from both UVB and UVA rays. When it comes to sunscreens specifically designed for scalp and hair protection, however, there are five key features to consider.

First is the type of UV protection the sunscreen provides. As previously mentioned, it is important to look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. It should also contain UVA/UVB blockers like avobenzone, octocrylene, homosalate, and octisalate. All of these ingredients should be safe and effective and not cause irritation or allergic reactions.

Second, it’s important to consider the ingredients used to formulate the sunscreen. Many scalp and hair sunscreens contain harsh and unnecessary chemicals, which can be damaging to hair as well as the scalp. Look for sunscreens with natural and organic ingredients such as fruits, herbs, and oils. These ingredients not only protect your scalp and hair, but they also provide nourishment and repair damage caused by the sun.

Third, the sunscreen should be sweat- and water-resistant. This will ensure that the sunscreen will not wash away when exposed to water or sweat. Furthermore, the sunscreen should contain sweat-absorbing elements to ensure that the scalp and hair are protected from sweat and water.

Fourth, it’s important to consider the type of scalp and hair the sunscreen is meant for. Some sunscreens are formulated specifically for a certain type of scalp or hair, while others can be used for any scalp or hair type. Be sure to read the label carefully before purchasing the sunscreen.

Last but not least, you should consider whether the sunscreen offers styling benefits or not. Some sunscreens are formulated with volumizing and styling ingredients. These ingredients help to provide lift and hold while also nourishing the scalp and hair.
