Sun protection isn't just for your face! The scalp, with its thin skin, is vulnerable to sunburn and even skin cancer. At Uniquely Effective Skincare, we're all about whole-body health, and that includes your scalp.

Scalp Cancer & Protection:

  • Thin skin and sun exposure increase risk.
  • Basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma can all occur on the scalp.

Early Detection:

  • Look for new/changing moles, scaly patches, sores, or unusual itching/burning.

Protect Your Scalp:

  • Daily SPF 30+ sunscreen (consider spray for easy application).
  • Sun-protective hats with brims.
  • Regular self-examinations.

See a Dermatologist:

Don't hesitate to consult a dermatologist if you notice any suspicious changes. Early detection is key!

By following these tips, you can enjoy healthy hair and reduce your risk of skin cancer. Sun protection is crucial from head to toe!  Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp, so don't forget to shield it from the sun.
