The Secret to Healthy Hair: Head Sunscreen to Thicken and Protect the Scalp

As Californians continue to enjoy the summer sun, there is a need to be mindful of the long-term dangers posed to our hair and skin. Prolonged exposure to the sun can leave hair dried and brittle, and worse, can lead to premature thinning of the scalp. Fortunately, a recent invention provides a powerful solution that prevents sunburn and scalp cancer — head sunscreen.

Protect & Prevent. Head sunscreen is a major benefit to our health and it should not be overlooked. Its primary use is to safeguard the scalp from sun damage, so that we can enjoy a worry-free life without having to worry about how our tresses look. Though at first glance it may not seem like a necessary protection, it has been shown to significantly reduce risks of skin cancer and other types of skin damage. Plus, its hydration and formulary abilities allow it to cover and protect the scalp in ways other sunscreens may not.

Nourish & Strengthen. Not only does daily suncare with head sunscreen protect from damage, it also reduces the effects of dryness that can come with exposure to sun and sweat. There are many ingredients in these products that help nourish your hair and scalp from the inside-out. For instance, it's been found that antioxidants, amino acids, and other nutrients such as Niacinamide, green tea extract and coffee extract can fight away environmental stressors and support follicle health. And natural ingredients such as licorice root extract, microalgae extract and safflower seed oil provide the nourishment and hydration needed to strengthen and invigorate hair for a vibrant and healthy look.

Lift & Style. For those seeking to add a bit of body and bounce to their hairstyle, head sunscreen can be a great choice. Certain formulas can provide incredible lifts, because they are supplemented with a proprietary collagen and silk amino acids. This combination not only helps provide volume and texture, but it also gives your hair a smooth finish. And as an added bonus, the UV actives in the formula, like Homosalate, Octocrylene, Octisalate, and Avobenzone, form an invisible veil of protection to reduce hair damage from the sun.

Beyond just providing protection to the scalp, head sunscreen can be a great resource for locks needing an extra boost. As its nourishing ingredients go to work to condition and protect the scalp, the benefits can extend beyond just the look and feel of hair - the benefits to health can be life lasting.
