Establish healthy hair routine for beautiful hair.

1. Choose the right SPF rating: SPF stands for “sun protection factor” and is a measure of how much protection the sunscreen will offer against UV rays. The higher the SPF rating of a sunscreen, the more effective it is. It is best to use a sunscreen with an SPF rating of at least 30 for your scalp and hair. SPF 40 and higher are ideal for those who are especially vulnerable to sunburn and skin cancer due to genetic makeup or lifestyle.

2. Select a product that is water resistant: Not all sunscreens are created equal, and selecting one that is water resistant is essential for proper protection. Most sunscreens are not waterproof, but rather, “water resistant” for up to 80 minutes in the water. This means that you will need to reapply the sunscreen to your scalp and hair every 80 minutes if you are swimming or spending time in a humid environment.

3. Know what ingredients to look for in sunscreen: It is important to choose a sunscreen that contains safe, effective ingredients that won’t damage your hair or cause skin irritation. Many sunscreens contain ingredients such as homosalate, octocrylene and octisalate that are known to be safe and effective for sun protection. You should also look for sunscreens that are enriched with antioxidants, amino acids, and nutrients such as niacinamide, green tea extract, and coffee extract to nourish your hair from root to tip. Additionally, safflower seed oil and green tea oil are two excellent nourishing ingredients that are great for hair health.

4. Consider a product with styling benefits: In addition to providing sun protection to your scalp and hair, you may be interested in a sunscreen that offers additional benefits such as volume and lift. Many sunscreens are formulated with a unique collagen and silk amino acid formula that helps provide lift and support to the hair, allowing for a fuller, bouncier look.

5. Stay protected while looking stylish: With the right products and practices, it’s possible to achieve both sun protection and great styling all at once. Fortunately, there are a variety of scalp and hair sunscreens designed to keep you protected while looking stylish and confident.

Proper sun protection for your scalp and hair is essential for keeping your hair healthy and protecting against sunburn, skin cancer, and other health risks associated with overexposure to UV rays. When selecting a sunscreen for your scalp and hair, be sure to look for one that offers the appropriate SPF rating, is water resistant, contains safe and effective ingredients, and has additional styling benefits. With the right product, it is possible to stay protected while looking stylish and confident.
