First and foremost, you’ll want to look for a sunscreen product that provides broad spectrum SPF coverage. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, and indicates the degree of protection the sunscreen will give your skin against the two types of damaging ultraviolet radiation – UVA and UVB. You should pick a sunscreen with at least SPF 40, to make sure you get maximum coverage from any product you choose.
Second, look for one that is nourishing and moisturizing to both your hair and scalp. Choose a product that is specifically designed for them, such as the Zenon Life Scalp and Hair Sunscreen SPF 40. This product is made with nutrients, antioxidant-rich botanicals, and our exclusive collagen-boosting formula that will help protect and strengthen your hair and scalp.
Third, look for products that can also help to lift and add volume to your hair. One would think that a sunscreen product would weigh you down, but the Zenon Life Scalp and Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 does just the opposite. It contains a proprietary technology that actually lifts your hair and gives it natural body. That way you don’t have to sacrifice style for protection.
Fourth, when it comes to sunscreen, you’ll want to make sure that the active ingredients are safe and effective. The Zenon Life Scalp and Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 is specifically formulated with safe and effective UV actives like homosalate, octocrylene, octisalate, and avobenzone that will help protect your scalp and hair from further sun damage.
Finally, to ensure that you maximize the effectiveness of the sunscreen, make sure to apply it 15 minutes before sun exposure. This will give the product enough time to be fully absorbed by your scalp and hair and will allow you to get the full SPF coverage that you need.
