6 best scalp sunscreens of 2021: Sun protection for your head

By now, you likely know that sunscreen is an effective way to help protect your face and body from the sun’s harmful Ultraviolet A and B rays, which can cause signs of aging, sunburns and skin cancer. But one overlooked spot you might not realize also needs sun protection is your scalp…

To help you narrow in on worthwhile scalp SPF, we consulted doctors on how to shop for scalp sunscreen — notably, their guidance depends on how much or little hair is on your head. We also asked dermatologists to share a few of their favorite product recommendations.

The best scalp sunscreen is the one that you’ll actually use and regularly reapply, said board-certified dermatologist Jason Miller, MD, of Schweiger Dermatology Group.
