Risk Of Sunscreen Thinning Hair

Is Sunscreen Thinning Your Hair? Letting the Sun in and Hair Out in California

It's no surprise that California is a hotspot for sunshine and UV rays year-round. With the extra risk of sun-related damage to skin and hair, it's important to be mindful of the dangers of sunburns, skin cancer, and possible thinning hair. But what a lot of people don't know is the connection between sunscreen and thinning hair. Could that bottle you're slathering on be hastening your hair's demise? Let's take a closer look at the real risk of sunscreen thinning hair in California.

In order to understand the connection between sunscreen and thinning hair, it's important to first understand what sunscreen does to protect our skin and hair from UV damage in the first place. Sunscreen works by blocking harmful UV rays—namely UVA and UVB—in order to reduce our risk of sunburn, sun-related skin damage, and skin cancer.

When it comes to our hair, combating sun-related damage is a legitimate concern. UV exposure causes a decrease in the luminosity and elasticity of our hair, leading to dryness, frizziness, breakage, and—in extreme cases—damage and thinning of the follicle itself.

Unfortunately, some conventional sunscreens may be weakening our hair even further. Some contain ingredients like Oxybenzone and Benzophenone-3, which are linked to hair loss and can even be absorbed into the bloodstream. Additionally, it can be incredibly difficult to rinse off these synthetic ingredients, leading to a buildup on the scalp and potentially blocking our follicles from life-giving nutrients.

But fear not. There is a way to get the protection you need without jeopardizing your hair. Introducing Zenon Life's scalp and hair sunscreen, an anti-cancer beauty brand for all.
