Should I Put Sunscreen on My Scalp?

It’s a question on a lot of minds for anyone with any kind of hair – from short styles to long locks and braids; from beards to mohawks – should we be slathering on a sunscreen for our scalp, too? It’s a valid question given the idea that your scalp is just as exposed to the sun’s damaging UV rays as the rest of your body, and being at the top of your head, its skin is particularly thin and susceptible to damage from the elements.

At ZenonLife, we are dedicated to providing skin care products that protect and nourish – and just as we review complex skin science, we understand the scalp’s needs. As part of our commitment to creating safe, powerful, protective products, we formulated our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 Protect, Style & Volumize for a complete all-ver use sun-shield.

There is no doubt that conversely to our facial skin, scalp & hair don’t get the same attention in terms of consideration for skin health protection. Oftentimes when we think of UV protection, we think of cloaking our face and body in a protective oil or cream, but our hair is rarely included in the equation. This can be especially true for balding men looking for safe, simple solutions for their scalp protection, which is exactly where the ZenonLife Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 Protect, Style & Volumize comes in.

Featuring a blend of both natural and synthetic UV actives, this patented sunscreen solution protects against both UVA and UVB rays that can bring about sunburn, skin cancer, and acceleration of the aging process. Not only is the moisturizer lightweight and non-greasy, it’s also fortified with specially selected and clinically proven ingredients that nourish & strengthen hair – so you get refreshed hydration from root to tip without compromise. Enjoy the peace of mind knowing you’re protected from the sun, while lifting and styling your hair for greater self-confidence.

Formulated with a proprietary blend of natural and synthetic nutrients, including collagen and silk amino acids, and infused with rich antioxidants like niacinamide, green tea and coffee extract, licorice root and microalgae extract, this sunscreen is perfectly suited for men suffering from the effects of male pattern baldness, alopecia, or other conditions that leave their scalp feeling dry or uncomfortable. Additionally, although we don’t use the natural or organic nomenclature, our sunscreen is composed of one hundred percent plant-derived ingredients that are safe and effective for use on even the most sensitive skin tones.

So, to answer the question: should you be wearing sunscreen on your scalp? The answer is yes, absolutely. Whether you have a full head of hair or are balding, protecting your scalp is essential in order to stay healthy, and here at ZenonLife, we recommend using Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 Protect, Style & Volumize to stay protected while looking stylish.
