Sunscreen Smarts: Protect Your Part

When going down my list of places to apply sunscreen, I often overlook the part in my hair. You wouldn't expect this spot to get that much sun, but if you have a defined hair part and you forget to protect, it can lead to a painful and peculiar sunburn.

The easiest thing to do is to wear a hat or other head covering, but if you dare to go bare, then try spritzing a spray sunscreen along the length of your part. It's less awkward than trying to rub in lotion around your hairline, and this way your hair won't get too greasy.

I really try to protect my scalp... this always happens to me. I think the use of hairspray magnifies the intensity too. I try to bring a and sunblock everywhere i go.

And the worst part about burning your part (which I have done many times) is when it starts to peel. You look like you have enormous flakes of dandruff.
