The Best Sun Protection Products for Hair

Whether you live in sunny states or are jetting off on holiday this Summer, remember that excessive sun exposure damages your hair. Yes, your hair needs protection just like your skin does, although lots of ladies out there will simply skip this step.

The harsh rays from the sun can leave your hair dry and dull, triggering the start of broken, brittle hair which leads to split ends and frizz. In addition, it’s your scalp that also is prone to damage. Those with fair hair are more prone to scalp burning, but it can happen to all hair types, especially if your parting is visible to the sun.

However, with thanks to heat protecting hair products, your hair can worry no more. SkinStore currently has an extensive range of sunscreen protectors for hair that you can spritz on and head out in the sun knowing your locks are protected.

Here’s our favorites…
