Best Sunscreens for Your Hair

Share Tweet Pin

We are all used to applying sunscreen to our skin before stepping outside on these beautiful summer days, but what about our hair? We take great pride in our luscious locks and when summer hits we can give our fried and dyed hair a much needed breather. You probably aren't using heated tools as much in the summer, but you still need to keep it protected! Sometimes a floppy hat just doesn't cut it... and for those times, you need to try hair protection sprays, oils and sunscreens!

What's one more step added to your daily summer beauty routine anyways?! Just like our precious skin, hair needs a little TLC from the sun! Applying a UV protectant spray can help guard your hair from the harsh sun rays. By not using any UV protection on your hair you're putting your locks at risk for faded color, dehydration, split ends, and premature hair ageing, no thanks!!

When it's sunny and hot we love to be outside, but just like our skin, our hair has to stay protected! These products will provide UV protection as well as many other benefits, like conditioning and detangling! 

So, to get you started, here are some of our favorite hair protectors:


Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer

Bumble and bumble

This pre-styling spray protects your hair from breakage and dehydration caused by heat and harmful UV rays. Think of this product as a makeup primer for your hair, protecting your locks as well as keeping them soft and conditioned! Just spray this product in damp hair, comb through and let air dry or style as desired!


Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil 


The name of this product says it all. Aveda’s Hair Veil is weather resistant and provides UV defense for up to 16 hours! Shea Butter, coconut and palm oil are also included in this product to condition as well as detangle your hair. This makes it easy to try a cute summer braid! Just spray this product evenly on to damp or dry hair before, or even during, sun exposure. No need to go overboard, a little bit of this product goes a long way! Just like sunscreen for your skin make sure you reapply after jumping into the pool.


Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray Broad Spectrum SPF30


This product goes above and beyond - it is good for both your skin and your hair. Just toss it in your beach bag and go! It's spray is lightweight, greaseless and protects from sun, saltwater and chlorine. Spray this product evenly onto your skin and hair and head to the pool, it's as easy as that! Clarins Sunscreen Care Oil Spray is water and sweat resistant making it the perfect product for those long summer days!
