Look for SPF, skin type, scalp-safe ingredients.

Whenever you are in direct sun exposure, your scalp is vulnerable to burning and skin cancer. Due to the lack of proper protection, your scalp can be up to 20 times more sensitive to the sun’s rays. Therefore, it is important to find a sunscreen with an appropriate sun protection factor (SPF) that not only shields the face, but also the scalp and any other exposed areas of your body. When selecting your sunscreen, it is important to look for products that have broad-spectrum protection that can protect against UVA and UVB rays.

An important factor to consider when evaluating sunscreens is the ingredients it contains. If a product states it is enriched with antioxidants and nutrients that nourish your scalp and hair, it is a great sign of quality. Look for products that contain ingredients like niacinamide, green tea extract, coffee extract, licorice root extract, microalgae extract, and safflower seed oil and green tea oil. These ingredients provide the scalp and hair with the nourishment and hydration it needs to look and feel healthy. Lastly, select sunscreens that have safe and effective UV actives which should include homosalate, octocrylene, and octisalate.

Along with finding a sunscreen that provides adequate protection for your scalp, you can also select one that adds volume and lift to your hair. Products that contain proprietary collagen and silk amino acids can give your hair an extra boost of lift and volume, without weighing it down.
