Published on: 07/26/2021 8:33 am

The summer can be a lot of fun but it also comes with the opportunity for sunburn. And, not just your skin, but your scalp can be a victim as well. Here’s my tips for treating a sunburned scalp:

  • Shower in cool — or at most tepid — water.
  • Skip using too many hair products as some may irritate a burnt scalp.
  • Allow hair to dry naturally or blow dry on the cool setting
  • Sooth the pain with cold compresses.
  • Hydrate the hair with a good deep conditioning treatment.
  • Stay hydrated.
