Why You Should Always Use Hair Sunscreen This Summer


You’ve packed your swimsuit, shades, and sunblock in your Missoni beach bag, but one thing you may have disregarded is sun protection for your hair. The truth is, your mane requires just as much attention as your skin when it comes to defending yourself from the sun’s harmful beams. Overexposure to UV rays can cause your strands to become brittle and break off—and can even result in a burned scalp. However, before you go and squeeze a bottle of SPF 50 onto your head, try weightless hair sunscreens (that come in the form of spray bottles and leave-in formulas) to protect and hydrate both your hair and scalp from the sun’s glare. Below, discover the most effective hair sunscreen products from the likes of Clarins, Aveda, and more.
