: This may be one of those obvious questions but need some advice. I have long hair and am very susceptible to severe sunburn. I'm not into caps or hats. My scalp burns even with my long hair. Anything I should (or could) do with my scalp to avoid sunburn?
I get bad sunburns but fortunately never on my head. I can't stand suntan lotion because it attracts so much dirt but where I can't keep skin covered I use spray on sun block. But on my head I wear one of those hats with a soft brim all the way around. Not the most good looking thing but I burn and blister in sun within 30 minutes and can't sleep when burn on my shoulders-head burn would be unbearable and skin cancer does run in my family.
