Summer time, of course, is a great time to get outside and get some sunshine, but don't forget to use sunscreen. Even scalps can get burned. If you are planning a day outside in the sun, think carefully about what hairstyle can keep that head shady. A hairstyle with no parts (like a ponytail) keeps it all in the shade. A single part (like pigtails) will leave a stripe of head exposed. You can protect it by putting a bit of sunscreen in the palm of your hand and dabbing it onto the part with your finger. If you choose a style with lots of parts, it will be a pain to cover it all with sunscreen, so make sure she wears a hat, at least. If the scalp does get burned, be gentle when combing the hair because it can really hurt. If it gets burned bad enough, it will flake off like dandruff a few days later. You can use a soft bristle brush to gently scrub the flakes off (it shouldn't hurt anymore by the time it starts flaking).
