i have a blad spot the size of about a dime, but ive had it since birth. its gotten sunburnt before, but i was on a beach in mexico for over a week, so that not very common i guess.
You gotta be kidden me dude! Are you naturally bald or cosmeticly bald? You know...fashion statement bald. Well...in answer to your question... of course wear some sort of covering. If you don't want that... wear some sort of sunscreen. Being naturally bald, I wear a hat and sunscreen together. I like to take my hat off at some point for awhile to get the top of my head tanned (I'm a white dude). You know... it looks kind of funny with a two toned head. In the winter months (if you have a winter)... wear a military beret. If you start getting warm...take your hat off for about three minutes. It's very refreshing and it will cool you off. Well... good luck with your shaved head. Oh...with those people with balding pates...it's alright to shave your head or have a very short hair-cut. It's a real drag figuring out what to do with the comb-over. Plus...women don't like comb-overs at all. Hope all this helps.
A sunburn is no problem... UNTIL IT IS ON THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD! I have been bald for a few years now and I am very cautious of how much sun I give my scalp. Give it sun in moderation. After 15 minutes or so put a hat on or lube that noggin up with some sunblock. Believe it or not, the top of your head is one of the most sensitive places on your body... so dont upset it.
Definitely wear some sort of sunscreen. When I first started shaving my head* I thought I didn't put anything on it because I wanted it to tan faster and I hated the two tone look. That was a big mistake as I got a sun burn and it was not even summertime. You just don't think about how much sun your head gets until you are bald. During the summer I always have to remember to either wear a hat or put on some sunscreen, I prefer the sunscreen. Also, I would either use some sort of sunscreen with moisturizer in it otherwise your gonna have flakes.
*My hair was getting very thin on top and I was sick of trying to find different hairstyles to hide the fact that it was thinning.
