The best sunscreen for your scalp While most dermatologists recommend using a spray formula because it's easy to apply, I disagree -- I think that's a recipe for sunscreen-coated hair. Instead, I use a lotion with a thin -- almost watery -- consistency so I barely have to rub it in. An oil-free version is best because it will dry quickly and absorb into your skin, not your hair. And the tip of the bottle should be small enough so you can draw a line straight down your part. It sounds impossible to find, right? Luckily, Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42 fits the bill perfectly. And if your scalp is especially sensitive, you should wear a tightly woven hat. Pick one with a wide brim that guarantees SPF 50 or higher.
