Most people who spend a lot of time outdoors know that they need to wear sunscreen to protect their skin from the sun’s rays, and they even know that it is important to wear sunglasses to protect their eyes from the run’s rays and to reduce eye strain. However, most people don’t think about protecting their scalp from the rays of the sun when they are playing golf. When you are outside your scalp takes the brunt of the sun’s force. Because of this it is one of the most vulnerable areas of your body. This is why, if you are a golfer, it is important to have the right golf headwear.
Your first option is to select golf hat that provides complete coverage of your scalp. Some of your options include hats, hoods, and caps. Callaway, Adidas, Ping, and TaylorMade all offer a good selection of golf caps and hats. The caps offered by these companies will protect your scalp from the harmful rays of the sun, and the brim of these items will also shade your face providing the skin on your face with a little extra protection. If you buy a non-brim knit cap for cooler weather golfing then you will want to remember to put sunscreen on your forehead and wear sunglasses to make up for the missing brim.
Your second option is to select a hat that only provides your scalp with partial coverage. Golf visors are a popular choice for both men and women golfers. Visors help to keep sweat from dripping down your face, and they also provide your face with some shade and protection from the sun. However, if you select a visor over a cap or hat, then you should use a spray on conditioner that has an SPF, and you will want to apply an SPF to your hair part line to protect your scalp from the sun.
In addition to buying golf headwear you may also want to buy headwear accessories. One popular accessory for golf headwear is the cap rain cover. This item is great for when it starts raining on the golf course. All you have to do is slip it over the hat and it instantly becomes waterproof. There are also novelty accessories that you can buy to compliment your golf headwear such as a beverage dispenser and a hat umbrella.
