I'm pretty sure that you have at least once in your life burnt your scalp after spending too much time under the sun. It hurts, itches, and eventually flakes, this is how to avoid it.
Should you really use sunscreen for your scalp?
If you have ever tried using regular sunscreen on your scalp, you know what a messy thing it can be. It is sticky and oily, and it does not look good, right?
The good news is that some brands have recently developed scalp sunscreens, but, on the other hand, the general opinion is that they still make your hair greasy – if you ask me, I prefer that over a burnt scalp.
This is why you should use SPF for your scalp
We don't usually see our scale, this is why it is especially dangerous. Apart from the obvious inconvenience of burning your scalp, chronic sun exposure can lead to skin cancers and melanomas.
How to protect your scalp from the sun
The easiest option is always to cover your hair with a hat and even if you don't have a scalp SPF formula, you can still apply any sunscreen. SPF sprays also come in handy because they are easier to apply than a lotion, but both get the job done.
