Fortunately, there are ways to protect your scalp from the sun and the consequences of unprotected exposure. Here, we answer often asked questions on the topic.
Do I need a scalp protector?
The short answer is yes, if you live in sunny or high UV environments. If you spend time outdoors, then protecting your scalp from the sun is highly recommended. Sunscreen helps to prevent sunburn and skin cancer. It also helps to nourish your hair as it hydrates the scalp and adds volume to your hair.
What is the best scalp protector?
Depending on your needs, there’s a range of scalp protectors to choose from. Here in Florida, we recommend our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40. It’s a light, water-resistant sunscreen specifically created to protect your scalp and nourish your hair. Our proprietary technology not only delivers superior sun protection, but it also provides incredible lift and volume to give you bouncy, healthy-looking hair.
How often should I reapply my scalp sunscreen?
The general advice is to reapply your sunscreen every two hours if you’re out and about in direct sun. If you’re out in indirect sun, it is not necessary to reapply sunscreen as often since UV rays won’t be as intense.
Does sunscreen damage my hair?
Like most skin and hair products, some sunscreens can be damaging to your hair if you don’t use the correct one for your hair type. However, as long as you use a sunscreen that is specifically designed to protect your scalp and nourish your hair, it should not cause any further damage.

Can scalp sunscreen clog my pores?

However, our Scalp & Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 does not contain any comedogenic fillers that can clog your pores. On the contrary, it’s enriched with antioxidants, amino acids, and nutrients to nourish your scalp and hair.
