This was great on holiday for me, I had my hair in braids for the majority of my holiday and my scalp never burnt whatsoever! I sprayed it at the recommended distance and my hair never looked oily or greasy. Will buy again next year for my next holiday

Scalp Protection

For Scalp & Parting

Read 1 reviews

Calypso Scalp Protection SPF30 is specially formulated to provide instant protection for the hair and scalp from harmful UVA and UVB rays. It can be sprayed directly through the hair onto the scalp. The water-resistant,
quick-drying and non-greasy solution provides effective protection for both the scalp and parting.

Most of us know to put on sunscreen to protect our skin from sun damage but we tend to forget about our hair. If your hair has prolonged exposure to the sun, it can lead to discolouration, brittle strands, split ends and frizziness.

If you’re suffering from dry or brittle hair then try our
Sun-Sea Hair Protection. It contains Argan Oil to rehydrate your hair as well as UV filters to protect it from the damaging effects of the sun, chlorine and dehydration.

  • Apply generously onto the scalp or hair.

  • Allow it to dry before exposure to direct sunlight.

  • Re-apply frequently, especially after perspiring, swimming or towelling.

  • Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.

  • Ideally do a patch test before use.

  • Keep out of reach of children.

Questions & Answers

Do I need to apply sun cream when it is not particularly sunny or hot?

Yes, sunscreen is still required. Even when the sky is overcast, UV radiation levels are still at 80% of their normal levels. The temperature can be deceptive - a breeze can keep you cool, but it doesn’t affect UV levels. Look up the UV index for your area to make sure you’re using protection when you need to be.

Are your products tested on animals, and are they suitable for vegetarians and vegans?

We’re pleased to say that we don’t test any of our products on animals. What's more, we don’t buy ingredients that have been tested on animals by another manufacturer. So you can buy Calypso confident in the knowledge that your sun care is cruelty-free.
All our products are suitable for vegetarians. However, some contain ingredients like keratin (made from sheep’s wool) or beeswax (made by bees) that vegans may wish to avoid. If you have any questions about animal ingredients, please get in touch.

What is UVA radiation? Does Calypso protect me against UVA?

There are two types of ultraviolet radiation which can harm our skin – UVA and UVB. Only UVB causes burning, but both types damage our skin, so good sunscreens should protect against both. However, SPF only measures UVB protection, so you have to check to make sure your sunscreen offers UVA protection too. There are lots of different UVA measuring systems around the world. We use the European standard – look for the letters UVA inside a circle. This symbol means that a product meets the EU-recommended level of UVA protection.

Why does Calypso not display the UVA star rating on its packaging?

Calypso has always used the Europe-wide standard UVA symbol (the letters UVA inside a circle) on its packaging. This is a legal requirement through Cosmetics Europe and ensures the correct balance between UVA and UVB on products. All other systems are not legally binding and do not follow the Cosmetics European Directive.
