Does my hair need suncream?

Dr Nicola Clayton recently told the Telegraph how important it is to protect our scalps…

“Sunburn to your scalp can cause skin cancer and therefore it’s essential to protect it from both UVA and UVB rays. Moreover, these rays damage the hair cuticle and keratin, leading to cosmetically undesirable effects such as bleaching, loss of lustre and split ends. Dry, fine, blonde, heat or chemically treated hair is most vulnerable, and damage is exacerbated by chlorine.
