To help you protect your scalp and color, we’ve outlined the most important things to consider when looking for a suitable sunscreen.
The first step in evaluating sunscreen is to pick a product specifically designed for the scalp and hair. Scalp-specific sunscreen is designed to stay put and won’t run down your face when sweating or swimming. It also won’t drip into your eyes or sting.
Look for sunscreen that contains an SPF rating of 30 or higher. Any SPF rating below this is not sufficient to protect your scalp and should be avoided. Also, pay attention to the water-resistant rating of the sunscreen you’re purchasing. This ensures that the product will remain effective even when exposed to sweat and humidity.
When choosing a sunscreen, always read the ingredients list and make sure it does not include undesirable additives such as parabens or dyes which can cause adverse skin reactions. Additionally, keep an eye out for products that contain nourishing natural ingredients that can provide additional scalp and hair benefits. These might include amino acids, antioxidants, natural oils, and other vitamins that can restore softness and shine to your hair.
The type of sunscreen you need will also depend on the specific area you are targeting. If you are looking to protect your scalp from sun damage, choose a spray or cream sunscreen specifically designed for the scalp, but if you are looking to protect your hair, choose a leave-in conditioner with sunscreen that you can incorporate into your hair routine.
Finally, keep in mind that you will need to reapply sunscreen at regular intervals in order to fully reap the benefits. Sunscreen should ideally be reapplied every two hours or more frequently if you are swimming or sweating a lot during the day. By using these tips, you can make sure that you are protecting your scalp while keeping your hair color safe and vibrant.
