Probably a stupid question… How do you avoid sunburning your part? I try to keep flipping my hair when I’m outside for a while to change the location, but it just ends up sunburning my whole head.
But if I try to put lotion on it, my hair gets greasy and gross!!
What to do??

Either spray sunscreen (it doesn’t get NEARLY as messy), or a big floppy hat!
I prefer the hat since it also keeps the sun off my face

Hats are the way to go. I’ve had a nasty scalp sun burn before and I’ll do just about anything to not relive that. Ouch.

Just bought a floppy hat. Look amazing and I get compliments everytime I wear it!

a hat is the only way to go unfortunately

I put sunblock on my part — just look for a non-greasy kind, like something you would use on your face.

I just use the spray sunscreen. I spray it on my finger and dab it on the part so the rest of my hair doesn’t get greasy.

@MapleMoose: exactly this. And a big floppy hat and sunglasses. Hiding from the paparazzi style.

I use the spray sunscreen. I’m not a hat person.

I hate burning my part, as once it’s done it seems like it reburns after 3 minutes of sun.
I try to wear a hat or a ponytail without a part when I’m going to be out for a decent amount of time.

I use spray sunscreen or just wear my hair in a way that there is no part.

i have dreadlocks so the same parts of my scalp are ALWAYS showing. And it burns really bad if I don’t put suncream on.
I spray a bit on my finger and then rub it into the bit that’s on show – and that’s that! a long as I rub it in, it doesn’t run or anything and no more burnt head 🙂
