How's this for an annoying situation?

You've dutifully sunblocked every exposed inch of skin -- even random spots like ears and feet -- only to experience a painful red burn on your scalp, of all places.

It's not uncommon; unless you wear a hat or scarf every time you step outside, those devious UV rays are going to get you.
It's no secret that skin is vulnerable to the sun, but did you know hair is, too?

That's why this just-launched Redken Color Extend Sun Solar Screen SPF 12, $16, is so genius: it's fortified with ingredients to help block both UVA and UVB rays and to maintain hair's health and color (the sun sucks out moisture, fades color and basically makes hair into a dull, frizzy mess). You simply spray it onto damp hair before heading out, and then reapply if you're outside all day.

This yummy-smelling stuff won't leave a filmy residue, but it will protect your skin and keep your strands looking and feeling gorgeous.
