Sun protection for your scalp requires a specific approach, and the following points must be taken into consideration:
1) Sunscreen SPF
Sunscreens come in various SPF levels, and choosing the appropriate one for your scalp can be tricky. The first thing to understand is the difference between an SPF 30 and an SPF 50. While both offer protection, SPF 30 filters around 97 percent of harmful UVB rays, whereas SPF 50 filters upwards of 98 percent.
2) Water resistance
One factor to consider is the water-resistant properties of the sunscreen. The toxicity of UV radiation increases when exposed to water, and so selecting a sunscreen with strengthened water resistance is essential, especially if you’ll be exposed to the sun for extended periods of time.
3) Hypoallergenic ingredients
Select a sunscreen designed with hypoallergenic ingredients such as low-allergenicity alcohols. Even if you’re not allergic to sunscreen, hypoallergenic ingredients can help reduce the chances of irritating your scalp or skin.
4) Hair enrichment
In addition to scalp protection, look for sunscreen with ingredients specifically designed to nourish your hair. Selecting sunscreen designed with ingredients such as antioxidants, amino acids, proteins, and other nutrients can help nourish your hair and protect it from further sun damage.
5) Style-minded properties
Selecting sunscreen designed with special attributes like lift, volume, and frizz/humidity protection can help give you the confidence of a more stylish headspace. Choose sunscreens designed with color-safe, vegan, and non-toxic properties to protect not only your scalp but also your hair.
