Protecting Your Scalp from Sun Damage Using Sunscreen: SPF 40 Protect, Style & Volumize

As the dermatologists and healers at Zenon Life would attest to, the sun can be a man’s worst enemy when it comes to hair loss. And what’s more, a balding scalp has been known to increase the chance of cancer caused by sun damage.

So, what can be done to combat the effects of the sun on thinning hair and a developing scalp? By knowing how to apply sunscreen to the scalp and hair, and incorporating it into your daily routine, you can protect yourself from further potential hair damage and even future skin cancer.

In this article, we’ll take a look at the benefits of applying sunscreen to your scalp, address any potential fears or misconceptions about sunscreening the scalp, and also take a look at some of the best products available in the market that can safeguard you from UV rays while providing nourishment to your scalp and hair.

The Benefits of Applying Sunscreen to Your Scalp

The fact is that scalp and hair are equally as vulnerable to the damaging UV rays of the sun as the rest of the body, and protecting them has tremendous health benefits.

Firstly, the most basic benefit of applying sunscreen on your scalp is that it prevents further hair thinning and cancer caused by sunburn. Most of the hair loss we experience is due to sun damage, be it due to frequent sun exposure or sunburn specifically. Sunscreen helps prevent the recurrence of sunburn, keeping the scalp healthy and the existing hair thick and voluminous.

Secondly, incorporating sunscreen into your daily routine provides the scalp and hair with nourishment. Many sunscreen products are enriched with antioxidants, nutrients, and amino acids, that promote healthy hair growth and make hair appear thicker, shinier, and voluminous.

There’s an added bonus of protection from other heat damage as well – be it from blow drying, products or other thermal styling tools like straightening irons and curling wands.

Common Fears & Misconceptions About Sunscreening the Scalp

Given that it’s an oft neglected region during our skincare routines, it’s easy to understand why people may feel confused or apprehensive when the topic of sunscreening the scalp comes up. People often fear that sunscreening the scalp will lead to an accumulation of product in the follicles, but visible flakes are often not the result of using sunscreen, but rather a buildup of hair products that have piled up over time.

Another common fear is that sunscreening the scalp will make the scalp look greasy and shiny, resulting in an oily looking scalp. While this may be true of certain products, most modern-day sunscreen products are made to offer light coverage and prevent this problem in the first place.
