|Straw hats add protection while being relatively cool.|
A HAT: I know. You hate hats. But a hat will not only protect your hair from sun damage as well as your tender scalp, it will also shade your face and reduce the sun exposure your facial skin receives. Although many people wear sunscreen, some still get a rash from being directly exposed to very hot, very bright sunshine (alas, I am one of them!).
Canvas hats are great: they can be rolled up and stuffed in a suitcase, but they can also get a bit hot. Your best bet for running around town is a closely woven straw hat.
