Stop red hair fading in summer with high SPF sunscreen hair products

Gingers spend the majority of their summers, nay, their lives, covering every bare inch of skin with sunscreen, and we’ve got bad news for you: this meticulous vigilance must also extend to your red hair.

Sun exposure can permanently damage the hair pigment, meaning you could lose vibrancy if you’re not careful. And don’t forget your delicate scalp, too, which should never be ignored when applying sunscreen. And it’s not the heat of the sun that damages your hair – it can withstand up to 180 degrees before the keratin disintegrates – but actually the UV rays, with, unsurprisingly, darker pigments being at lower risk of damage.

But before you go and squirt the SPF all over your red head (which, ick), there’s an easier, much more redhead-friendly way of doing this. Spritzing a mist of high-factor SPF hair product will do the trick. Or why not cover up with a hat?

To ensure the preservation of this rare gingerness, here are some SPF hair products suitable for redheads. You’re welcome.
