L'Oreal Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen Oil Spray SPF 50+, $10.99
While technically for face and body, I like the high level of SPF this product provides for hair and scalp, especially for a day at the beach. Additionally, L'Oreal will donate $1 to the Melanoma Research Alliance for each Sublime Sun product sold in the US through the end of 2013.

It's been blazing hot across the country! Have you been beating the heat at the beach or pool? We all know we should protect our skin from the sun but we often overlook our hair and scalp. It's really important to protect your hair from the sun, as well as from harsh elements such as wind, salt water, and chlorine. Nothing will dry out hair or fade hair color faster than being outside on a sunny day. The scalp is also really vulnerable because it's usually getting direct light. One person dies every year in the U.S. from melanoma, so be sure to protect yourself and ask your hairstylist to tell you if he or she sees any moles you should keep an eye on.
