Every Southerner knows the importance of lathering up with SPF in the summer. While we're diligent about protecting our face and body, shielding our scalp is a different story. Most of us simply slip on a cute sun hat and call it a day. Unfortunately, UV rays can penetrate many straw or fabric styles, making the tops of our heads a sunburn hot spot. That's why it's important to add an extra layer of protection with a formula like Coola's Organic SPF 30 Scalp and Hair Mist.

Unlike other sunscreen sprays that turn strands into a sticky mess, this one is specifically designed to be used in your mane since it's infused with a trio of scalp-loving ingredients. First, there's Gotu Kola extract (from a flowering plant in Asia) that boosts micro-circulation, so your hair follicles stay healthy. Then there's Panthenol, a natural moisturizer which strengthens each strand, along with Monoi Oil. Monoi Oil helps condition damaged hair, protects against the sun, and adds shine.

The mist lets you easily spritz it on along your part, around your hair line, or anywhere your hair is a little thin. You can spray it all over wet or dry strands as well to ensure you're preventing damage from the sun (and the saltwater) from root to tip.

This combination of benefits makes Coola's formula ideal for protecting against burns while also preventing your hair color from fading. That's why this pretty green bottle is becoming another staple in our beach bag this summer. You can never have too much sunscreen, right?
