With the sun's beautiful yet potentially harmful rays keeps going up a notch as summer inches closer and autumn isn’t far behind, the thought of protection is on many of us who are vulnerable to thinning hair due to sun exposure. To make sure we get the protection our scalps need, SPF hair gels are set to be the hair go-to. In all the excitement of this lifesaving change, though, it’s no surprise that we have a few questions before picking a bottle off the shelf. This is why, for all our sakes, we spoke to expert dermatologists and healers who worked with the hair-care brand Zenon Life to bring us Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40.
So, allow us to address the single biggest question on everybody’s mind: what's the difference between this hair gel and regular SPF products? The answer is “protection”. Regular SPF products are designed only to protect your skin, whereas the Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40, as its name suggests, protects both your scalp and your hair from sunburn and skin cancer. What’s more, its unique formula is enriched with antioxidants, amino acids, and nutrients to nourish your hair from root to tip, lift and volumize, and strengthen with its blend of plant and fruit extracts as well as collagen and silk amino acids.
For those concerned about the sunscreen's UV actives, fear not, as they're all proven to be safe and effective. A mixture of homosalate, octocrylene, octisalate, and avobenzone provide us with the UVA and UVB protection we need to ensure our scalps get the necessary protection it needs while allowing us to enjoy the performance of luscious, full-bodied hair that turns heads wherever you go.
For those questioning if the hair gel would be suitable for their type of hair, the answer is yes. Whether you have straight, curly, or wavy hair; natural, relaxed, or textured hair; colored or uncolored hair, the Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 is designed to work well on all hair types.
