Primark's £3 scalp sun spray is a huge hit with mums online

One part of the body that’s often overlooked when putting sunscreen on is the scalp.

Nobody wants to rub cream into their hair, and some find hats claustrophobic and sweaty.

Enter Primark’s £3 scalp spray, which has 5* UVA protection in SPF50 and is being raved about online.

Posted on the Family Lockdown Tips and Ideas Facebook group, one person captioned a picture of the spray: ‘A great find in Primark! My 2 year old has fair skin and blonde hair and so burns easily, especially on her scalp… (sometimes there’s just no keeping a hat on!).

‘So this 5* UVA rated SPF50 hair/scalp spray has been amazing for us!’

The original post now has over 6,000 likes and 3,000 comments, mostly from people tagging friends and family to check out the find.

‘Thank u I so need this I burn my scalp every bloody year,’ wrote one.

Another said: ‘I get this for my bald boyfriend.’

Basically, scalp protection is for all people; young or old, hirsute or bald.
