The scalp is an area that’s easily missed when applying sunscreen. As these partings in the hair become deeper or more pronounced, direct sun exposure days can increase skin cancer risk. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, only 10 minutes of direct sun exposure can increase your risk of developing skin cancer. Especially for those with thinning hair or baldness, a scalp sun protection regimen is essential.
The risk of sun damage can be even greater in those with lighter hair, as lighter-colored hair reflects more sunlight than darker hair. Men tend to be more at risk for skin cancer, particularly on the scalp, since androgen hormones can trigger male baldness. Fortunately, there are ways to protect the scalp and hair from sun damage.
Scalp and hair sunscreens provide added protection from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays and help mitigate the risk of sunburn and skin cancer. Such sunscreens provide the same benefits of a traditional sunscreen — such as protection from UVA and UVB radiation and hydration — with the added benefits of enhanced nourishment for the hair and scalp.
