Default Do Anything Extra for Sun Protection?

Noticing my hair is a bit dryer this week due to the hot weather (90s) with a lot of humidity although I do spritz (aloe/lavendar/flaxgel) throughout the day, but a couple of hours later, feels dry again. Could it be the spritz? Which products offer sunscreen protection?
Hair Type: 4a/b dense, fine, coily hair. Cut hair 7/12. Natural 10 years.

Staples: Tresemme Naturals, shea butter + almond oil mix, homemade flaxseed gel, black soap shampoo and bentonite clay.

repeating this from another thread...I have been told that shea butter the unrefined kind has a natural sunscreen...
SO its part of my leave-in mix. My hair has been staying moist even with the crazy heat...don't know if the shea is helping.
HG: WEN Sweet Almond
Ojon RT
Oils (jojoba, olive, sapote, carrot)
Kinky curly custard
Blended Beauty (new fave)
I will not chop my hair off in frustration this year. I will not..I promise, no braids, no braids, no chopping.

Another butter with natural sunscreen in avocado butter.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

redken's sun milk and their UV rescue line is pretty good for protection from the sun
