1. Ingredients – What’s In the Bottle?
When looking for a good sun spray, one of the most important items to consider is the ingredients list. Check the label and make sure that the ingredients are organic, natural, and safe for your skin and hair. Some of the main ingredients to look out for are: Strengthened with a proprietary collagen and silk amino acids and Supplemented with a chock full of rich antioxidants: Niacinamide, green tea extract, coffee extract, licorice root extract, microalgae extract, and infused with safflower seed oil and green tea oil.
These key ingredients work together to nourish, prevent, and protect your scalp and hair from sun damage. They help strengthen the hairs’ natural barrier against ultraviolet (UV) rays, photo-aging, and other environmental elements. On top of that, they also promote healthy hair growth, help restore shine and luster, and promote scalp health.
2. SPF/UV Protection
The SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, is the rating that determines how effective a sunscreen product is at shielding your skin from the sun’s sunburn-causing ultraviolet (UV) rays. This rating is typically between two and five and depends on the product’s active ingredients. Some sun protection sprays, for example, offer SPF 40 protection, which is ideal for long days spent in the sun or in high altitudes. Other products offer protection over a longer period of time by staying on the skin.
So, make sure to consider the SPF rating of sunscreen sprays and test their guards against those UV rays. If the SPF rating is too low, it won’t be effective at preventing sunburns or damage to your skin and hair. If you’ll be spending a lot of time in the sun, opt for products with an SPF of 40 or higher.
3. Restore, Nourish, Strengthen
Look for sun protection spray products that also offer the additional benefits of restoring, nourishing, and strengthening your hair or scalp. To achieve gorgeous, healthy hair, the products you use must contain powerful, natural ingredients. These ingredients can help your hair and scalp get the nourishment they need to stay healthy and strong. The Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 Protect, Style & Volumize product, for instance, contains amino acids, antioxidants, and other natural nutrients that help nourish and protect your hair and scalp.
4. Lift and Style
The right sun protection spray can also help you get the lift and volume you desire. Some sprays are designed with special technology that delivers an amazing lift and volume to your hair. This makes the spray a must-have for anyone looking for a volumizing and styling product. The scalp and hair sunscreen we mentioned earlier, for example, contains a unique blend of technologies that delivers lift and volume to your hair with an added sun protection bonus.
5. Environmental Impact
Finally, consider the environmental impact of the sun protection spray you're looking to purchase. Ideally, the product should be made with ingredients that are sustainable and free of harsh chemicals. The Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 Protect, Style & Volumize product only contains natural, plant-derived ingredients, is free of sulfates, parabens, and phthalates, and is Cruelty-free and Vegan.
Sun protection spray for hair can be one of the most critical steps to keeping your scalp and hair healthy and protected from the sun’s damaging UV rays. It’s important to choose a product that contains natural, moisturizing, and nourishing ingredients, has an SPF of 40 or higher, offers the benefits of lift and style, and is eco-friendly. By following these five simple steps, you can find the sun protection spray that’s right for you and ensure you’re protecting your scalp and hair against sunburns and sun damage.
