Maybe you’ve experienced a full day out in the sun without a hat and came home with a sore, sunburned scalp. Maybe you have thinning hair or are balding and every day your scalp is exposed. Either way, the top of your head is a target for UV radiation.
Even with a full head of hair, your part exposes your scalp to UV rays. Your hair of course can be damaged by overexposure to sunshine as well. This damage can cause hair follicles to stop growing and enter a shedding phase resulting in hair loss.
But it’s hard to use sunscreen on your head — it makes our hair look greasy. So what’s the best way to protect yourself? Wearing a hat obviously helps and you can also try our Sun Defense Shampoo and Body Wash. This product offers daily sun protection for tough-to-cover areas like scalp.
