    Could try head & shoulders to rehydrate the scalp.

    Nice creamy conditioner.

    It'll stop peeling of it's own accord quite soon though, just like normal sunburn would.

    For future reference, badannas are the way forward!

    Or sun cream on your parting(s)! I burnt my scalp once, and that was enough to never forget to dab a spot of the old factor 30 on my bonce.

    I HATE having a sunburnt head. Since I burnt it when I was 14, I always try to cover my head with a hat or bandana when I'm in the sun, at the very least put my hair up without a parting.

    This isn't helping since the damage is already done...

    Aftersun, moisturiser etc will probably help. Last time I burnt it, I tied it up in the morning and covered the dandruffy looking bits, and didn't touch my head all day so that I didn't disturb it!
