Sunscreen For The Hair

Protect Your Hair & Scalp from Sun Damage with Sunscreen SPF 40

At the start of summer, your hair and scalp are exposed to increased UV rays – and extensive sun exposure has been linked to significant hair and scalp damage. But don’t worry – sunscreen can help protect your hair and scalp from the sun's damaging UV rays.

Whether you’re a frequent beachgoer, frequent traveler or just a sunny days enthusiast, using sunscreen SPF 40 is an essential step in your daily skincare routine to protect and give you the confidence to enjoy all of life’s outdoor activities.

From the dangers of scalp and hair sun exposure, to the protective and preventative benefits of sunscreen, to Zenon Life’s antioxidant-rich, anti-cancer, scalp & hair sunscreen SPF 40, here’s everything you need to know to protect and enjoy the summer days rooftop-tanning or beach-lounging in California.

What Happens To Hair & Scalp From Sun Exposure?

Summer is here, and you’ve dusted off that sun hat and found your sandals for those perfect outdoor days spent lounging in the sun. But, have you thought about protecting your hair and scalp from the sun’s UV rays?

When exposed to UV radiation, your hair is subject to the risk of damage, bleaching and thinning. But hair damage from the sun does not appear instantaneously. Prolonged sun exposure over a few days or weeks leads to dryness, frizz, and breakage.

In certain cases, hair pulling could occur, due to extreme heat combined with exposure to UV radiation, resulting in poor hair health and damage. While this could occur to any hair type, this hazard is more common for those with thinner hair or receding hair lines.

The scalp is even more vulnerable to sun exposure, and therefore more at risk of sunburn and cancer. As we age, our scalp’s natural protection from the sun diminishes, and certain types of radiation are able to penetrate deep into our scalp and cause lasting damage.

How Does Sunscreen Help Protect Hair & Scalp From Sun Damage?

The right sunscreen is key to protecting your hair and scalp from the sun and its damaging effects. Sunscreen will help protect your hair and scalp from the sun’s harmful UV rays, by forming a layer of protection on the surface of the skin. Choose a sunscreen that offers both UVA and UVB protection and made specifically for the scalp and hair.

Zenon Life’s Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 is specifically formulated with a unique blend of UV actives to protect your scalp and hair from sun exposure. The sunscreen is enriched with antioxidants, amino acids, and nutrients to nourish your hair from root to tip, and help shield it from the sun.

Zenon Life’s scalp and hair sunscreen features innovative technology to boost your hair’s volume and shine, while still protecting it from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Yes – you can enjoy the confidence of voluminous, healthy hair AND be worry-free of sunburn and skin cancer!

How to Use Sunscreen For Healthier Hair & Scalp

Before you expose yourself to the sun, apply sunscreen all over your scalp and hairline, ensuring you cover all areas that will be exposed to the sun. Don’t forget the ears and neck! Re-apply as needed, especially after swimming or if you’re sweating profusely.

If your hair tends to become greasy after applying sunscreen, Zenon Life’s scalp & hair sunscreen SPF 40 offers a water-resistant formula to ensure hours of UVA and UVB protection and sunburn avoidance. To ensure the best results, add a few drops of the hair sunscreen to your other hair care products like leave-in conditioner or mousse.

In addition, Zenon Life’s scalp & hair sunscreen SPF 40 comes with an auto-dispensing, flip top cap for easy and convenient application. The lightweight, non-greasy formula won’t weigh your hair down and leaves you with a refreshing scent of cucumber and watermelon!
