Note to self: When planning to be on the lake for an entire day in a boat, when applying copious amounts of sunscreen, DO NOT FORGET THE PART IN YOUR HAIR.

Yeah, I found that out. The next day, I was fresh out of the shower and running a comb through my hair, and I SCREAMED. My scalp was burned from where I'd parted my hair--really burned. PAIN. AGONY.

Now it's just peeling. Yeah. I have dark brown hair. Lovely. I look like I have lice.

Ball caps are a southern soccer mom's best friend. Like you, many of us learned the hard way.

I'm glad you're having a wonderful vacation. In two weeks I'm off to the Carolina coast!

Hope your sunburn is cooling.

Sorry to hear that. I have almost BLACK hair, but lucky for me it is a huge puff ball of frizzy fluff and there is no "part". It is so friggin' thick there is no way any scalp will ever show, so I don't have to worry about burns or flakes.

I just get to look like a lady with a dark puff ball on her head:)
